Location is superb, 10 mins from Train station, on the top of High Street. Room was basic, but clean. Breakfast was ok, nothing extraordinary. Wi-fi was superb. The only thing that needs improvement was bathroom - it was really outdated, water pressure was non-existant, and it was mouldy.

Very good location on our trip around the island, our rooms were a bit old but with comfortable beds and quite affordable price with breakfast included. Brian was very helpful with tips and directions

Stayed at this Guest House for 3 nights whilst visiting the Island on business. The room (Number 1 Ground Floor) was very clean ample size for one person however, would be a little cramped if travelling has a couple. The chap running the Guest House Brian was a very nice guy. I was a little disappointed when I was informed... More

Stayed here for a few days this was our 4th visit. Brian and his staff very friendly. As a coeliac I was offered gluten free cereal, sausage and bread for toast, without being made to feel a nuisance. Comfortable hotel in a convenient location for the amenities in Sandown. Would have no hesitation to book again.

I don't even know where to begin with this hotel. I have thought long and hard looking for a positive, but I can't find one. We arrived at the Chester Lodge, greeted by Brian. Pleasant enough up until the point where he started being really quite racist about two other families staying at the hotel. Openly telling us that he... More

I booked this hotel as a family trip to the Island as after reading the reviews on here is seemed to be just what I was after. Unfortunately the hotel is extremely dated, very dusty, stained carpets, old persons smell as you enter (despite several air fresheners), bedroom was dark, smelly, dirty, shower was disgusting, one of the beds on...

Set in a good location close to beach and main street, this family run hotel is excellent. The proprietor and staff were extremely pleasant and the accommodation very comfortable. A good hearty breakfast was included in the very reasonable price. I will most certainly return and would recommend this little gem of a place!
