I read the reviews of this hotel and felt uncertain. My partner and I wanted to go back to Isle of Wight as it's such a great place, but needed to cut costs and feel looked after too! I loved this hotel because of the warmth extended by Mary and her husband. From the moment we arrived you felt a part of "The House" and welcomed. This is not a 5 star hotel, does not sell itself as such and makes no pretences about it, so from any reviews you read that are derogitary should be strongly ignored. We arrived and laughed at the fact the bed squeaked, loved the space of the room and adored the overly spacious balcony that sweeps around the first floor. Breakfast was a bit early but for a weekend trip we were happy to feel full tummys after a superb spread that we still had most of the day to "get out there". You have a couple here who trust you with their house keys, knock on your door when you've overslept to let you know breakfast is ready, and have a wonderful sense of humour without being invasive. On our last breakfast I overheard a guest saying he was going for a walkabout - not surprising bearing in mind the exceptional location, and would it be okay if he didn't check out for a few hours - Mary was exceptionally cool with a "no problem" go out and enoy attitude. You get what you pay, for and in our minds this hotel provides above that. X
