This was my third visit to stay at this Hotel - we were here for my Dad's 80th Birthday celebration which was on Sunday Lunchtime.

The staff were all extremely welcoming - particularly the restaurant manager who went out of her way to make sure everything ran smoothly and all the details were just right.

The bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom had a tub, which was lovely to relax in as so many hotels are getting rid of these in favour of showers only to save on costs.

The room tea & coffee making facilities were very generously stocked with quality items, and there was a complimentary bottle of mineral water each left for us each day near our bed which was a lovely touch.

Breakfast was in the restaurant with wonderful views over the Solent where ships and cruise liners can be view gracefully gliding past.

The restaurant offers fantastic dining, and my father's 80th had 25 guests for the Sunday Carvery which was exceptional value given the location and the quality of the food. There is also a very sensibly priced list of bar/lounge foods on offer which was also of extremely high quality, and we enjoyed this during the evening.

For the quality of the room and the high level of service, I believe this Hotel offers outstanding value for money, I am sure we will be there again :)

One final point worth mentioning, they welcome "well behaved" dogs - again this was very helpful to us in making our plans to visit the Island - meaning we could bring our Cocker Spaniel into the Hotel after enjoying her walks on the promenade. Her time was split between us and my father who lives in Cowes - but it's great to know we can have the option of her staying in the Hotel!

Thank you very much for your review, we are glad to have played a part in your fathers 80th birthday and have passed on your kind comments to Kathy, the restaurant manager, and her staff.

We are pleased that you enjoy the view as much as us and that you also appreciated the "home comforts" that you have mentioned regarding the bedrooms.

We look forward to seeing you on your fourth visit when you bring the pooch.

Kind Regards

Room was great we had a sea view lovely big comfy bed liked the chocolates on the pillows the bathroom was a good size with a corner bath and shower over. Staff were friendly and helpful we took our 2 westies with us and they were made welcome at the hotel at no extra charge. The only thing that lets this wonderful hotel down is the food evening meal had a good choice of mains but same vegetables every evening . Would stay at this hotel again as we were made to feel very welcome.

Went with some trepidation appears that there are few / no large chain or standard hotels on the island. Very pleasantly surprised much better than anticipated and I am fussy. Room was at the back no view at all but good size clean and well equipped. Hotel was clean throughout a little old in places but nothing to write home about. Above all of note was that the staff we encountered were super friendly from the front desk to the two gents at breakfast and waitresses one evening. We also ate there due to late ferry over and food was of good standard. Breakfast cooked to order with good choice. Beach location would be nice for those not on business. All in all very good
