My partner and I stayed one night at the Yelf's Hotel and we have no complaints. The staff were very friendly and explained everything well in terms of breakfast/door codes etc.. It makes a massive difference when we are greeted with smiles :) Our room was rather spacious with an extra "lounging" area and all amenties you would expect for...

Whilst the ambience is very nice, the food and service has been poor the three times my friend and I have visited for lunch. We ate from the bar menu, soup and jacket potato, the potato was nasty! Like it had been reheated many times, the soup was below average for the price, no bread came with the soup, when...

Booked in advance for what seemed to be a good Christmas dinner at a fairly high price.... unfortunately the meal was far below expected standards despite the good nature of the staff. Will not be repeating the experience, very disappointing and would have had better value at other Island establishments for much less money!

Thank Petee N

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry you were disappointed with your meal at Yelf's on Christmas Day. It can be difficult to meet everyone's expectations on such an important day, especially when catering for such large numbers. Perhaps you would like to contact me directly in order to discuss your experience in more detail? Just call...

Centrally located, this isn't a hotel for light sleepers, but it's perfectly placed to catch all action :) Nikki behind reception found out it was our wedding anniversary and offered to upgrade us (which was lovely of her!!) although my irritating husband chose to stay in our room next to the car park so he could keep an eye on...

Yelf's Hotel is located on one of the main streets in Ryde, which runs between the High Street and the sea front. It is handy for many shops, bars and restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good choice for breakfast (the breakfast room has a courtyard, which can be used in warmer weather) and the bar and...

Had 4 nights at the hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much for them. Full buffet breakfast every morning included in room rate. Be careful of the filtered coffee ...

“The front of the hotel looks out onto the main street, close to bars and nightclubs; therefore rooms at the rear of the hotel are quieter.”
