Having read a number of the reviews we can only agree with the positive reports that have been left here.We also had the good fortune to meet the owner,Terry, who is both keen to have your impressions about his hotel, and is open about his business.
We took one of the cut price breaks not quite knowing what to expect. It is finding a well run family business on this scale that is so rare and such a pleasant suprise.
When you first arrive you somehow expect from Lakeside's exterior appearance that you will be getting the usual formulaic 'corporate experience' .While all those components are there (spa,massage,pool, etc),it is quickly apparent from the high standard of cleanliness throughout, together with the willingness and cheerfulness of the staff, that this is something different.The personal touch is everything in places like this .
Ask your selves when you last met a Manager of a big hotel quietly checking if there was enough bacon on the breakfast bar or that the scrambled eggs are up to scratch?Or a manager,let alone an owner, who takes the trouble to ask you personally how you found your visit and really wants to hear your views?What a change from filling in the usual tick box questionnaire.
Get the real thing - treat yourselves to a refreshing change .Oh,and the Isle of Wight was good, too!
