Clean, warm and staff very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choices.Beds were comfortable and the sea view from bedrooms was excellent. Parking no problem, but beware the very steep hill involved. It's not really a restaurant- more of a upper class B and B.

We have just come back from a long weekend on the IOW & stayed at the Hambrough. We stayed in room 2. It was very clean & comfortable, with excellent views. Good location. The breakfast was very good too. Staff friendly. It is a shame they don't have a chef any more to offer evening meals. For that reason it... More

I was surprised to find so many 'overners' that hadn't been, some of which are my closest friends. For the past two years, us girls have set off... More

I went here for an anniversary meal with my wife and we both had the tasting menu. The food along with the service was exceptional. The one downside was the restaurant did seem to lack a little bit of atmosphere. I'm sure during the day the view adds to the general ambiance but in the dark it lacked any wow... More

Not a lot else to say. Everything sourced locally and delivered to an extremely high standard. White choc and iow blue cheese ice cream was a total contradiction that worked fantastically well and the beetroot and duck egg starter blew us away.
