Quite a busy Sunday lunchtime, we walked in for a spot of lunch. Shortly after ordering, we received our first course. Sadly after just over an hour, our main course hadn't arrived. It would appear we had been forgotten. Very disappointing, and this would have been an one star review if it hadn't been for the attitude of the manager... More

I stayed here on business. It's an old fashioned seaside hotel, 100 years from the esplanade at Ryde, and a 10 minute walk from Ryde Esplanade station (up a fairly steep hill). Room was spacious and clean, bed comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. It is a bit tired, but perfectly adequate. I would certainly stay... More

Good value and fair choice from the menu. A bit of a slow service but as there were a few of us and we were chatting, the wait was not particularly noticed. Clean, lovely staff and food was good.There was a vegetarian option too. Would recommend if you want good food on a budget.

The room was basic and unflattering but the hotel itself was good. Nice bar and good food. Nice beer garden too, friendly staff and nice relaxed atmosphere. There are some awful hotels on IOW but Yelfs was nice enough for me to stay again in the future. The location was good with plenty of other bars and restaurants along the... More

Thought we were staying somewhere cheep and cheerful but actually the bed was comfortable, the room was spacious and the staff couldn't of helped more. Breakfast wasn't great but for the price was fine. I would go again if I needed to.

After a vey very long walk there was a lift which was not working!!!! But luckily... More

Just spent 2 nights at Yelfs, first impression on entering was not bad and was met at reception by extremely friendly staff, the room was a little dated and could do with a spruce up but the bed was extremely comfortable, dinner on both nights was of a very good quality and again I found the staff very friendly. I... More

Clean room with friendly helpful staff and good range of choices for breakfast. Amazing value and quality of dinner choice of two courses for £9.95 or three for £ 15.00. I chose a two course of Sea bass with crab sauce, creamy mash and delicious range of vegetables and sticky toffee cheesecake with berries. Great location as it is close... More

Just had lunch here. I had a Caesar salad which was very good and there was so much food I couldn't eat it all. My partner had scampi and chips with homemade tartare sauce which he said was very good! Didn't expect it to be so good and all for £16. Very good value and quality and ideal for families... More
