Having read the reviews and the high marks and review (other than one crazy person) my partner and I opted to stay at the Victoria Lodge Hotel. When we arrived we were welcomed by Sally-Anne and Peter and shown to our room. The room was spacious and had everything we required, we had fresh towels and the usual you would expect. The Bed was nice and comfy (which we all know is a must) and the bathroom was a nice size to do what you need!. We had a TV, kettle etc again as you would expect.
The hotel through-out was clean and tidy. Both Sally-Anne and Peter were very knowledgeable and helped us plan our time in the Isle of Wight, with ideas of places to go and see. Everyone there was happy and helped make you feel comfortable and it was a friendly atmosphere. I like my breakfasts and I enjoyed them very much ;o). you had a choice from cereals, Cooked breakfast (now were talking!), kippers etc, we also had tea/coffee and toast. The waitress was polite and helpful and most importantly to me brought me a very nice cooked breakfast!.
The location was superb we were a walk away from the beech and the sea views were beautiful. Each morning we would pop outside with our tea and sit in the sun looking out to sea.
I would like to make one note from a crazy review from someone moaning about ‘room 7’ and we were intrigued to see this, what a load of bull. The room opens up to the hallway of the hotel and opposite is a wall, yes to the right you can see a small part of the restaurant but it certainly didn’t open to the restaurant (as written by some ‘reviewer’) and it was private like the rest of the rooms. I guess some people just like to moan about anything ha ha ha.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and got more than we expected and we will definitely be going back to stay at the Victoria Lodge Hotel when we visit the beautiful Isle of Wight again. Thank you Sally-Anne, Peter and staff we shall look forward to seeing you all again soon John and Sarah.
