The entire staff (reception, restaurant, bar and cleaning) were very friendly and efficient. The rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. There were varied options for breakfast and dinner and the food was excellently cooked and served. Although our coach was...

Check in was easy, very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed overnight for a social event and the food was good, especially given they were catering for 100 people. We had a sea view room which was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The food at breakfast was good, as was the service. The hotel is in a lovely location and I...

Can't really fault the hotel as such. Nice big room, big comfy bed and a great view of the channel. Problem was there was a coachload of "Turkey and Tinsel" revellers at the hotel and just two other "independent" couples, so at meal times it was manic and when the "T&T's" went out on a trip deserted. The "T&T's" had...

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy our Pre Christmas break, as with many hotels in the off season it is a way of encouraging business. Pleased to hear you enjoyed the room and the view hopefully you found something enjoyable to eat other than turkey from the choice on our menu. Hope to see you again. Kind regards Gill

We had a lovely room with great sea views.It was excellent. The hotel is perfect for a walk along the promenade or a stroll into Shanklin. Everywhere is either up or down a hill but if you're okay with that you'll have a great time.

This is a traditional "Sea-Side" Hotel - if you are looking for the modern city stay type hotel then you may be disappointed, this is the more traditional family hotel and has a much friendlier attitude. The hotel was very comfortable, and the rooms clean The bedroom had all the facilities you would expect and the staff were very helpful...

Room 28,although a little small it had all you would need. One thing I would suggest is that you move the long mirror from the inside to the outside of the wardrobe door.
