This is a tired hotel which needs a fair amount of attention to improve it. Not only that, because we had to move our dates by one day which meant we slipped into May and a Friday night they charged us an extra £80 for the privilege. On top of that. I assume that because we moved dates by one night they then allocated an inferior room to us (room 9) which was at the back of the hotel above the (very noisy) kitchen. We mentioned this to the receptionist who confirmed that we had not been put into the room booked but did allow us to move rooms for the second night. It would have been better to not have to unpack twice but the housekeeping ladies (who were lovely) moved our bags for us from room 9 to our new room. This was a much better size (as per our original booking) and we had a partial sea view, which was lovely. However, the floorboards of the room above were so creaky that every time the people upstairs got up in the night it woke us up!! So I'd recommend you ask for a top floor room if you want uninterrupted sleep. The evening meals were adequate but not special and the waiting staff were pleasant once they relaxed a bit-I think they were not used to clients speaking to them about the hotel and the Isle of Wight! Would we stay there again? Only if there were improvements in the evening food and an assurance that the room booked would be the room allocated on arrival. The dog enjoyed himself-and that was the main reason for choosing the Luccombe Manor as it is dog-friendly.
