“"Very welcoming hotel"”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Very friendly welcome on arrival, and the same friendly service at breakfast & dinner. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Very clean and comfortable room, and heated swimming pool as well. Location was good, both for the town and travelling further afield. First time to the island since 1975, so will certainly stay here again.

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

I my wife and mother in-law stayed at the hotel for the Christmas break. From the outset the staff made us really welcome.

The meals were really good with plenty of choice and the staff and owners cheerfully ensured that all our needs were catered for.

The entertainment during the stay was enjoyable and varied and the musicians accomplished.
We enjoyed the 'fun' atmosphere - again the staff and owners joining in and going the extra distance

The rooms were a good size and clean and comfortable

We took full advantage of the heated indoor swimming pool each day.

Only a short walk to the town and the beach - which is very convenient.

This was our second visit having stayed in the summer 2012 and we will happily stay again!

Thanks again to all the staff who worked hard over the Christmas period to ensure we had an enjoyable stay.

I stayed for a few days in December when visiting family and turned it into a mini-break.
Decent room, great breakfast and a heated swimming pool---and a spa where I could also enjoy a welcome massage. I would deffinately stay here again!

Hotel and staff were friendly and looked after us from morning to night. Plenty of excellent food and very clean and tidy. Chris the waiter was very efficient and polite. We have been here 3 times and enjoyed every moment. Our room was comfortable and clean. the entertainment was good and the hotel was very well decorated for Christmas.

Room Tip: room 204, a family room was large and adequate. Not much of a view but that didn't spoil the sta...

There were 3 of us in a family room, and found the room to be & have everything we needed. Very comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast service, you name it, you could have it, and the food was gorgeous! Stayed at the hotel with the family (8 of us) and we had a ball in the swimming pool, jacuzzi, & steam room! Was on the island (my 1st time in I.O.W) to visit my Grandad for his 90th, i will definately stay at this hotel on my return to the island. Many thanks to everyone at the hotel.

Room Tip: Family room is very spacious, we had 2 singles & a double bed, excellent!

Our stay at the Woght montrene was very good. Good facilities, really clean, and very nice food. But at Breakfast and Dinner there was one very rude lady. Chris one of the waitors was lovely but the one rude lady ruined our stay. One of the girls I went with complained. Overall location was nice and had a good stay.

The hotel manager and staff excelled themselves in providing the perfect venue for a dinner dance function for 70 guests, many of whom stayed overnight. The food was excellent, served hot throughout and the musicians very good.
Tastefully decorated for the Christmas season, the dining room, bar and dance floor were informal, warm and welcoming.
Our comfortable overnight stay was enhanced by the excellent breakfast, served at our table, followed by a lovely stroll along the beach, only a few steps from the hotel.Tucked away from the main road, the hotel is quiet thus ensuring a good night's sleep! The pool is spotlessly clean and inviting. All round, excellent value for money.
