We have just arrived home from a very enjoyable stay at this hotel, Staff very helpful and nothing seemed to much trouble to them. Breakfast was excellent, our room was on the first floor room 16 it was very specious i thought it was going to be noisey as it is next to the staff entrance but no they must employ very quiet staff. i would certainly use this hotel again if we were to stay in this area

Nice looking hotel from the outside giving the appearance of an old coach house. The room we had was clean and roomy with most mod cons. But in common with the majority of other hotels nowadays the Hotel only has thin cheap towels.The room was equipped with a small fan next to the bed but did not have air conditioning which whilst not vital would have made it just that bit better especially as it was one of the warmest weekends of the year. The hotel is located on the High Street in an area of bars and clubs but at no time did we feel uncomfortable or bothered by their clientele and we certainly could not hear them from our room even though we stayed at weekend in the height of summer. The stay and the staff were pleasant enough and I would stay there again.

Stayed on business, mid week, generally ok. Room extremely warm and was offered an extra fan and advised to leave my window open on a ground floor room.

Just after 11pm I reported a very strong smell of Cannabis from an opposing room for which the night porter immediately attended. I assume it was dealt with as the following morning the smell was not present.

My issue is not that I hold the hotel responsible for the event but I have since called the hotel and requested a call from the Manager to discuss these issues. To date I have received no feed back, call or apology.

Would have expected a call at the very least.

Room Tip: First time I have stayed at this hotel and would stay again.

Very well located with an easy walk to the shopping centre & IoW ferries. Good value. We paid £59 plus £4 for parking & only booked two days before. Clean well equipped, compact but adequate sized room, nothing view, friendly staff.
Bit of a labyrinth, is a conversion of several buildings so many fire doors & changes of level.
We went out for breakfast, there are several cafes nearby. Full English breakfast booked the night before costs £10 a significant reduction on the full price of £15.
