“Great service”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

We ate here one very rainy May evening.
We were feeling a bit down in the dumps but the warm welcome from the staff, the excellent service, and wonderful fish and chips perked us up....so much so we went back a couple of days later for the full English breakfast.
Definitely recommended.....but we didn't stay there so can't comment about the rooms etc.

Stayed here of the may bank holiday 2013' while on the island for a wedding. Part of a group of 8. Friendly staff, arranged a table for us all in the morning - massive brekkie, you won't be disappointed, 10quids of anyone's money in London.

Room clean and basic, but what you would expect, no qualms at all. They asked if we wanted the rooms cleaned, we said no, but they did it anyway - that's good service

Would totally recommend if paying a visit to the island

Room Tip: Unless you really want a sea view, I'd go for one without a Balcony as its cheaper

We stopped off here while visiting the island for an evening meal. My husband had the chowder, which he really enjoyed and said was very tasty and well cooked. I had rump steak, which was really good, well cooked and very well presented. The portions were large but presented really nice. Staff were really friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend here and if we get a chance we will eat here again. As an added bonus it's right on the sea front with a brilliant outlook over the water. Loved it!!

Just got back from our fourth weekend break at the steamer and honestly can not wait for the fifth!
No its not a five star hotel or fine dining restaurant, but what they do provide is nice rooms, a warm friendly atmosphere,with very good food and entertainment! So yes for us this place ticks all the boxes for a brilliant weekend away! see you soon kim and sharon,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Brilliant location, right by the beach. Very friendly staff. Menu caters for all tastes. Thoroughly enjoyed my smoked haddock gratin.Room 4 is a little tired with a shower over the bath but warm & a very comfy bed. Balcony looking out to sea. The breakfast.was huge & absolutely delicious. Excellent value for money at £30pppn & would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Room 4 has a balcony overlooking the sea

Staff helpful and efficient. Our room No 7 was noisy all night ( triple glazing req ). So we got a change (thanks to the manager Mr Hughes ), but because of availability we had to change rooms twice ( rooms 2 and 5 ). Trip extended stayed in room 4, nice room, but needed a proper shower
( electric/enclosed ) over bath.
The rooms we had needed updating, which i understand is happening soon. Food beer & service very good. Position of Steamer great, would stay again. Stayed next door= not saying which side=, never again.

Room Tip: My advice get a balcony room, worth the extra cost.
