Conveniently located on the esplanade this Victorian hotel has unique sea views and benefits from being on a level seafront position. The beach is close by and the shops and holiday attractions of the well-known resort of Ryde are only a short walk away. The hotel is also well-situated for buses, taxis, trains and the hovercraft, so offers the ideal base to travel all around the island as well as over to Portsmouth with its rich maritime history. The seafront position lends itself to some wonderful views from the restaurant and lounges - the perfect place to sit back and relax. A car is ideal for getting around the undulating roads of the Isle of Wight and there is a plethora of things to see and do for all ages. Whether touring historic houses or visiting natural adventure parks, watching the yachting action and festivities of Cowes week, or just relaxing on one of the islands many beaches, you are sure to enjoy the island’s unique charm.

"View from #4 shows Solent, bus station, hover boats"
"Ask for a sea-view."
"Rooms at the front have a wonderful sea view. Being directly opposite the Hovercraft terminal it is very noisy when they depart or arrive."
"Upgrade to a sea view"
"Room 68 is lovely but in front and on the 3rd floor so might be considered noisy. There is a lift."
