The 2* rating on this hotel clearly refers to the rooms, which are basic but scrupulously clean. We opted for the standard room with shower, toiletries provided. There is a TV, hairdryer, kettle and daily replenishment of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. The hotel is one road back from the front, which is only a couple of minutes walk away. It is peaceful and in it's own grounds, there is safe off-road parking and some play equipment for children in the garden. We didn't use the swimming pool, OASIS spa or snooker room because there wasn't time on the short break we booked. Nor did we opt for full board, although they do offers which make it a reasonable option. The breakfast menu is extensive, but it is not rigid if you request a variation.
We think the staff definitely deserve at least double the star rating! They were very welcoming, from the first website enquiry to the chambermaid seeing us leave on the last day and hoping we had enjoyed out visit. (In fact we went to breakfast one morning and she had made up the room by the time we got back - including folding my nightdress and placing it under the pillow!)
I would certainly go back if we return to the Isle of Wight. This may only be 2* according to the AA, but for overall welcome and service I would not hesitate to say that is definitely too low!
