Dorset House was built in 1842 during the reign of Queen Victoria and has been operating as a bed and breakfast for many years. We are not of modern design and have 23 rooms varying in size. Centrally located in the historic town of Ryde, we are close to many restaurants and cafes. The house has a large private car park at the rear and offers a garden with seating area to take in the peace and quiet that the Isle of Wight offers. Free wi-fi is available in the public area and we operate a licensed bar. Inclusive ferry packages are available to suit the cost of your trip. We have many special offers throughout the year. Please note we do not have a swimming pool at this establishment

Me and my partner stayed here for a weekend. We were greeted by a lady called Wendy and made to feel very welcome. We stayed in the garden suite which we really enjoyed. We will definitely be returning and recommending.
