Popped in for a breakfast which was great value with good quality ingredients…the service was excellent also, would highly recommended a visit. Location and view are not too bad either. There was plenty of seating and a nice atmosphere :-)

Shaun, Mark, Nic and the team made the February stay positive and enjoyable.
Welcome and hospitality, superb.
Room absolutely fine, (good view of dustbins!) but ask for a sea view if you want one!
Sleep quality as good as one gets in a busy hotel - no complaints, noise tolerable.
Bathroom great EXCEPT! as I get older I do wish that if I can't have a walk-in shower, the bath overwhich the shower is provided could be provided with grab-handles!! Come on hoteliers around the country! - we're not all young as we were,
and going base over apex in a hotel bathroom causes major probs for everyone!
Food - is what it is: nicely presented and competently and politely served. The cooked breakfast was not, however, quite as good as I remember from last year.
All in all, a great stay. Got me out of home for a few days while the central heating was being replaced, at the same time allowing me to indulge my hobby as a train "anorak". (Newly introduced Island Trains stock! Ryde Esplande Stn just over the road! 6 quid a day for a rover ticket! Bus pass as well! I was a happy boy!)
Seriously though and all in all, great stay, highly recommended.
Special thanks to Mark for remembering me from last year and for the good chat.
Well done mate, and see you again soon!

Room tip: All I would say is, if you you want a nice view from a hotel bedroom window, ask for one. But prepared to pay for it I guess.

I attended a party, and the bar staff were abysmal. Jack, for instance, was rather rude and closed the bar 15 minutes early. He also waltzed around like he owned the place, acting like he wanted to intimidate everyone around him he also needs to learn that a full drink is not a finished drink as he took fresh drinks from tables while the customer was in the toilets. The drinks were overpriced, and the food was atrocious. If I could give it a lower rating, I seriously would!

Location perfect hotel needs a bit of TLC. Our bedroom ceiling had marks on the ceiling, dated beside cabinets and the bathroom had a cracked tile on the floor and the toilet top was a loose plant of wood, grouting needed doing!

Having had a lovely day on Monday 21st as it was my partners birthday decided to eat in the restaurant at about 7pm! The meal was ordered and delivered within five minutes just zapped in the microwave all dried up. Spoilt the evening totally. Complained and money refunded just glad we never had our breakfasts there.

Such a shame as the staff and hotel were really lovely.

Room tip: Sea view obviously and two huge windows looking out over to Portsmouth
