Clean and well maintained room, comfortable bed, good cooked breakfast, friendly and attentive host. Close to station and town centre. Everything was in good order. I expect that I will stay here again. Good value.

Coming by train, this is the first place you come across to stay in Sandown. Bus stops are a short walk away and the town centre is in easy walking distance (same goes for grub). I had a single room that was spacious and once I worked out English h&s regulations had a decent shower en suite. Good working wifi.... More

I stayed here for a few days break over the summer. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful and I felt a pang of disappointment on leaving. The hotel is well situated with just a few minutes walk to the beach and local transport, has the advantage of off road car parking availability, provided spotless rooms and... More

We have just returned from spending a week at The Fernside. We have stayed several times over the last 7 years and are never disappointed. The rooms are spotlessly clean with towels, toiletries (including a vanity kit and individually wrapped shower caps) and tea/coffee making facilities provided, along with biscuits and bottled water. A great choice at breakfast, the Full... More

For a welcoming and friendly small hotel in a town with many attractions it would be hard to beat The Fernside. Within 2 minutes walk of the local convenience shop and only a few minutes walk from the beach, Sandown Pier and a bustling street of cafés and souvenir shops the hotel is well situated. About half a mile away... More

Been to this hotel before. The welcoming staff, great breakfasts and great location, were some of the reasons for our return. Again, another warm welcome by Laurie. The breakfasts were still great and a varied selection on offer. The bar meals were again still great, which were washed down with a nice cool beer. One of our family is disabled... More

Stayed here for two nights over the Bestival weekend as access to the festival is relatively easy by taxi. The welcome is warm and friendly, the rooms very clean if a little dated, the breakfast is generous, and you get a front door key so you can come and go as you please. There is free Wi-Fi which we had... More
