What a lovely find! The Wight Montrene is a great hotel, with friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to make your holiday a good one. I stayed for 3 nights with my elderly mother and from the time of booking they went the extra mile, allocating her a ground floor room. Check in was easy with the receptionist giving us lots of useful information regarding our restaurant table, bar opening times and the leisure facilities. The rooms, although perhaps a bit dated, were spotlessly clean and I had a very comfy bed! Each night the evening meal was 5 courses and the food was absolutely gorgeous (unfortunately I couldn't eat 5 courses although I would have loved to). There was also a lot of choice with about 3 starters, 5 mains and 3 puddings. Breakfast was the same, cooked to order and you could have as much or as little as you wanted. We found the bar prices quite reasonable paying only £12 for a decent bottle of red wine. The first 2 evenings we enjoyed our meal accompanied by Steve the pianist, then on the 3rd night we had another gentleman pianist. Both were excellent and very friendly, even playing some Tom Jones tunes when they found out we were Welsh! The hotel is situated about 5 minutes walk from Sandown front and in a great location for travelling around the island. There seemed to be a few places to eat in Sandown but to be honest, when the food is this good in your hotel why bother looking elsewhere? We had a great time in the Wight Montrene and also made some very good friends there. I would definitely recommend this establishment to others.
