This was my first visit to the Isle of White, although my friend had visited many times before but had never stayed in this hotel. We arrived tired and a little grouchy after quite a long drive, only to be greeted by a VERY warm welcome by Des and Linda.
We had planned to get away from it all, discover the Island and go all over the place, but found ourselves having so much fun at The Belmont, that most of that went out of the window! We did manage to get out and about to visit the local pubs and tea-rooms which were great, but found ourselves wanting to go back to The Belmont before long!
We started the day with a very good breakfast with a wide range of continental foods, juices, teas, fresh coffee and fruit to choose from NOT TO MENTION THE FULL ENGLISH, WHICH WAS FAB!!!!
The rooms are tastefully decorated, very comfortable and are en suite with a choice of shower or over-shower baths. Tea and coffee making faciliies are available in the rooms as is a hairdryer and towels etc. not to mention boutique style toiliteries which again is a really nice touch. The rooms are very reasonably priced, and there is an extensive menu to choose from should you fancy anything from a light snack to a three course meal. The food was very good, and was served in a very homely and relaxed atmosphere which I loved. The bar is well stocked and the hours are flexible which was probably not a good thing to tell us, but bless Des, he never complained once!!!
In short, this is a fun and friendly family run business where we were made to feel very welcome and at home. So much so in fact, that we decided to stay an extra night! My friend and I would both highly recommend this place and we are already planning our next trip to what we now feel is our new "Home from Home." Thanks again guys for a wonderful stay. Kind Regards, Rosie and Niels.
