We booked a stay using a voucher which included the ferry and was very good value. Originally this was booked for Luccombe Manor which is the sister hotel but we were moved to Luccombe Hall as the other one was shut, which was no problem to us.
We normally go for a more luxury hotel but thought we would give this one (a 3*) a try as it was good value and we wanted to visit the island. My first impression on walking through the door was that it was like Fawlty towers! However as soon as we entered the receptionist welcomed us and checked us in. she showed us around the hotel. it had a small indoor pool, a games room with a pool table, a good area for small children, a squash court and sauna. We didnt use any of these, the pool had some noisy but well behaved children!
I had paid extra for a sea view room which was well worth the extra. On entering the room the smell of dettol was quite strong but this soon disappeared. the view was absolutely stunning, the room was large (it had a double and single bed) and the window at the end of the room was full size which looked over the outdoor swimming pool and gardens.
the room had no luxurious touches as one would expect from a 3 star, but it was spotlessly clean, the bath was really big and lots of boiling hot water.
Our deal included breakfast and dinner which was all delicious and beautifully cooked.
the main thing to us was how genuinely friendly the entire staff were, not just good manners because they had been told to but genuinely very polite, chatty and helpful.
For this reason we would definately return to this hotel and would recommend it. if you are looking for a little luxury possibly not the right hotel for you but for us this was far outweighed by the lovely friendly atmosphere.
we found that everything shuts down in winter so next time we will bring bikes as there seemed to be lots of cycle routes.
