Well, honestly, what do some folk expect for their money. A group of four of us had a lovely time at this hotel. As there was only one upgraded room to be had, we had a standard room. The upgraded room was worth paying the extra but our room was very cosy, and plenty of space. The en-suite was rather small but this did not become a problem. There was plenty of hot water for a bath etc. and the room was lovely and clean. We welcomed the fact that no one was allowed to smoke in their rooms but for those who needed the 'weed' they could go out in the gardens (a lovely sunny position). The hotel is situated in a lovely spot. The bus service is second to none and we travelled to Godshill, Cowes, Ryde, Osborne House and Vetnor - all in the five day period. The food and service was very good and as we like a prompt service we were more than happy at the speed the food was delivered to our table. As we were blessed with sunny weather throughout our stay I think the holiday was as good as it could have been, especially for the money that we paid!! We have had many coach holidays with different companies but felt that this certainly was value for money. The entertainment was also very good. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay an extremely enjoyable one. We certainly would go back and encourage our group of ten friends to sample its delights very soon!!
