Well we struck lucky when we booked into The Leconfield. We had no idea what to expect as we normally stay in larger hotels but this was fantastic. The room was beautiful with a sea view and a four poster bed, as much tea and coffee as needed and a great breakfast cooked to order. The owner, Paul, couldn't do...

The Leconfield proved to be a great place for a relaxing weekend for our group of ten adults. Paul and his staff looked after us very well. The rooms are wonderful and most have sea views. Breakfast was good quality, varied and well cooked as was the evening meals. Thoroughly recommended.

Paul, our host was very welcoming, bringing us afternoon tea whilst we unpacked and settled in. Our room was stylish and luxuriously appointed with every comfort we could wish for and faced the sea with our own terrace, complete with sunbeds. Other family members arrived and they too were delighted with their accommodation. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds, an array of...

Our fourth visit and it will not be our last. An excellent small hotel with very well appointed rooms in a great location for exploring the island. It is a home from home with a genuinely warm welcome. We would not stay anywhere else.

The website says 'Nothing Overlooked, but the Sea'. How true that is. Nothing was too much trouble for Paul, Cheryl and the staff. I took my husband for a 3 night break to celebrate his birthday and The Leconfield was the perfect place! Sumptuous accommodation - the bedroom was large with its own balcony and the en-suite was huge with...

All pros and no cons. The welcome and friendliness of the owners was perfect. I never leave full marks but this is the exception I just cannot find anything to be negative about. Would like to visit again in the summer so we can use the gardens and pool.

We live on the Island and just had a wonderful short break at the Leconfield. The Captain's Bridge room we stayed in has everything one dreams of: a very spacious bathroom with a free standing bath & enormous power shower, fluffy towels, his & hers sinks and even a soft carpet so you feel utterly spoilt!
