We arrived at the Kasbah Thursday afternoon and was showed to our room (9), spacious and clean. Dumped the bags and parked the car round the corner £6.90 for 24 hours. Live music Thursday night in The Kasbah was a treat, had "Jules Nelson" playing a great mixture of tunes. What a guitarist this guy was he made the night for us. We went up to bed about 1am (we think) and did not hear any noise from the bar downstairs or the busy street below, but it was a quiet Thursday. The next night however was a lot noisier but we shut the window and it really was not a problem.
I think the people on here who have left the bad reviews have clearly not done their homework before booking with the Kasbah. If you want peace and quiet then book somewhere in Ventnor or another quieter location. This B&B is not for families or old couples. Its a bar with accommodation above. If your a young couple who like a drink then its perfect. Or a group of lads or girls then perfect. Yes there will be noise as your on a busy high street, but as I said above if you just shut the window its really not a problem.
The staff were all friendly, never saw the same person twice mind, always somebody different behind the bar. But all friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was ok, to me a full english is 2 sausage, 2 bacon, 2 eggs, fried bread, black pudding and beans. What we actually got was 1 sausage, 1 bacon, hash brown, a few beans mushrooms tomato and an egg. It was ok and did the job.
LOVED THE SHOWER! great pressure, could have stayed in it for hours.
A few pointers for the room. A fridge would have come in handy! we had to improvise and buy a bag of ice from the shop. Also better pillows, the one's we had were not great. Only one bedside table too, could of done with one the other side. Other than that the room had digital TV with ipod doc, fan, hairdryer and even an iron.
All in all a good couple of nights here, ignore the bad reviews as these people have not done their homework.
