My sisters and I stayed for 3 nights in June, the greeting on arrival was friendly, helpful and it was an efficient check in. We were given a choice of two rooms. Both lovely. The room was very clean, comfortable and had a lovely view overlooking the garden and the sea. Breakfast was plentiful. All the staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. It was ideally located, it is on the top of the cliff above the beach, but if you are reasonably fit it shouldn’t be a problem. Would definitely choose this hotel on a return visit.

I could say a lot more but am trying to be as ocjective as possible over an awful visit. We were advised that room 404 is a delightful room. To start with its 4 flights of stairs up to it and at 75 with a weeks luggage was I’ll advised by the management. The web site says blackout curtains in all rooms, see photo, I rest my case. The bed is inaccessible from one side due to a concrete wall that sticks out half way down the bed. See photo. I advised the management that the toilet seat was loose and dangerous and was not repaired. When complained about the room and that I had injured my knee on the wall stitching out, I met with an aggressive reaction that they were offended by my complaint. This is all accurate and I rest my case.

Very welcoming. Comfortable lounge and conservatory so plenty of places to relax which was good as no chairs were provided in the room. The only real criticism I have is the times for breakfast. I feel that an 8.30 start is late especially when you have young children.

A lovely place to stay on the I.O.W Always a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble. This was our second short stay at the hotel which provides great service in a friendly relaxed environment. The room had a beautiful sea view and I love the teacups in the room. Thank you for a great stay

We came here as a family of 11 for my Aunts birthday. It’s safe to say we all had a fantastic time. All areas and our room were clean and tidy. The breakfast was amazing, there was plenty to choose from the the plates were nice and hot! The view was beautiful and we were lucky to have good weather which helped. The customer service was fantastic, Salma is a lovely lady , there was a real effort to make it special for my Aunty. We really enjoyed our stay. If anyone mentions the Isle of Wight I will without doubt recommend this hotel.

Pulled up at this hotel to be faced with all the bins near the entrance. Which was off putting ,as we went inside the decor was dark and shabby and horrid carpets.We was given the key to our room ,It was grotty through the corridor when we entered our room it was just horrid . We had booked front sea view with balcony . The wooden door to enter the balcony was rotted and filthy there were weeds growing out of the tiles.no way was we staying there. We just left never even took our luggage in this horrid place we had to drive around to find a hotel which we did. Luckily otherwise we were getting back on the ferry. What an expensive 3 day break.

I am not sure what to responds to this review as this person did not even stay, asked for additional rooms for their friends to stay with them at the same time and whether we were fully booked in terms of occupancy. And Regretfully we were fully booked out. -The hotel is very far from Shabby, or unclean or dark or grotty. Our hotel image is visited over 100,000k on google which have been sent by the guest who have stayed with us. Our hotel receives one of highest review in IOW according to Booking.com review. Does that mean most of the guest are miscommunicating!!! I rest my case !!! Best Wishes Salma

Stayed at this hotel mid October for a long weekend. We weren’t disappointed. We had a sea view with balcony and it was well worth paying a little extra for it. The room itself wasn’t huge, but adequate for your needs. Comfy double bed, en-suite wardrobe, dressing table, TV and tea and coffee making facilities. What really stood out for us was Salma and her team. The service was brilliant and very friendly. Salma takes the time to speak to all her guests. Breakfast was included in the price, which was amazing as it really was substantial and a great choice from full English to continental. There is a bar which was open every night we were there and a lounge area to relax in. The hotel is ideally located to walk into the old town, or down to the beach. The lift is literally on your doorstep if you can’t manage the steps. There’s even a costal path that takes you in to Sandown. There’s so much to see and do here you won’t be disappointed. If you are thinking of staying here, book direct and you will get a great deal on the ferry. If you’re driving there is an on-site car park, but does get full. However this isn’t really an issue as free parking is available on the roads.
