We celebrated with family & friends over the New Year's Eve period. The rooms were very clean & staff most welcoming. Lively entertainment. The food was plentiful and a good choice. Looking forward to booking again for this year's Celebrations!!!

The hike up the stairs is worth the stunning sea view. The staff are lovely and although jt is a little outdated, you don't really need more than you get here. Super!!! :) At first our heating didn't work but I think it just needed the tap to be turned on to get things running into our room. That was... More

The hotel is quietly undergoing a refurbishment. If it carries on doing the work it has already done, it will be a very good place to stay. Currently the lounge and dining room have been re-carpeted and new furniture throughout. The rooms are dated but adequate and comfy. When I go next I will certainly stay there again.

We visited in November and was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was. My family live on the Island so I'd booked the cheapest hotel I could find as I knew we wouldn't spend long there, but also I didn't want to make my husband spend the weekend sleeping on the pullout bed at my mums! I think the... More

Hotel is clean & staff friendly. The lounge and restaurant are very good. Our room however was sub-standard. the bed,in particular was soft & lumpy - don't think the mattress has been changed in years. Only stayed a couple of days, but a week would have been too long.

One night stay and, to be fair, it was very cheap (not all that much more than the cost of 2 breakfasts in a Travelodge!). So our expectations were not high. On a positive note it was easy to find, had a car park, was only 2-3 minutes walk from the centre of Sandown and the pier, was clean, and... More
