“A little gem”
Reviewed 5 April 2011

This hotel is a real 'find' set in beautiful parkland and an absolute must for the discerning traveller. I first visited this hotel with friends about four years ago and with having to return to the Island subsequently each year for work I couldn't choose a better place that Rylstone Manor. Mike and Carole are gracious hosts - Mike is a tremendous cook - his meals are as good as you will find at any top restaurant whilst Carole ensures that guests are made most welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and they have even provided breakfast for me an hour earlier than they would normally serve it. The hotel is immaculate and every comfort thought of down to the chocolate which is left on your pillow each night. If you like the hustle and bustle of a large hotel then this is not the place to stay. However if you are looking for a quiet getaway with excellent food and comfort, in a tranquil setting then look no further!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and we would not fault the facilities or the quality of service in any way. Both Mike and Carol went out of their way to make us welcome and were intent in giving us whatever we required. No chef could take his profession more seriously than Mike and the variety of training he has undertaken over the years, including some at 'Le Manoir' certainly is evidenced in the food that appears on the plates. Such is the quality of the cooking, it compares to any we have had anywhere in the world -yes, it's that good. I would recommend the hotel to any friend and would be confident that they would form the same opinion as us. We found the hotel to be a haven of peace and quiet -just what we were looking for.

Stayed at one of their superior rooms. Extremely comfortable four poster bed with good facilities, including a dressing table for the lady. The fan in en-suite can be a little loud though. The evening meal was most delicious, cooked by Michael, with good service from Angie. There is both a bar and drawing room to relax before and after the meal. The stay finished off by a delicious cooked breakfast. All good, if a little pricey.

This hotel is wonderful. Every detail from the soft bed sheets to the background music to the relaxing atmosphere, it is a pleasure to stay here. The chef & owner Mike with his wife Carole are friendly & welcoming. The food & menus are delicious & trust me you will not want to have an evening meal else where as the dishes are devine; my mouth is watering just thinkg about. The setting is perfect & the fact that no children can stay keeps the tranquility of Rylstone Manor. In a word delightful.

I had to come to the Isle of Wight for business and found the hotel by chance and am very glad that I did. The house was beautiful and my room was cosy and welcoming. The only downside was that there was no bath but that can be easily forgotten given the rest of the stay. Dinner was lovely and Angie, the waitress was friendly and welcoming. An absolute gem, specially when travelling alone. Breakfast doesn't start until 8.30 which would have been a problem if I hadn't had changes to my schedule and I'm very glad that I didn't have to miss it. The scrambled eggs and smoked salmon are wonderful and when they say freshly baked croissants, they mean it. It was almost too hot to touch! If I have to return to IOW again, I will be calling the hotel straight away to book another stay.

We stayed for 4 nights. The owners are friendly, helpful and run a very good hotel. The breakfast kippers are the best. Dinner was excelent. THe house is set in public gardens a few feet from the sea and town. Perfect place from which to tour the Island by foot, bike or bus.

Rylstone Manor is beautiful quiet well run hotel in an idyllic setting. On arrival we got a guided tour of the gardens and the work of a local Sparrow Hawk! There are Red Squirrels in the Park and the Gardens of Rylstone. We stayed for three nights and loved every aspect of our stay. The Breakfast was superb every morning and all the staff have a smile and are very helpful with any local information such as weather forecasts and recommendations on places to visit. We did not eat in the hotel at night, but this was only because we fancied the short walk into town to sample the local restaurants (take a torch for the trip back through the park.) We tried Mama Mia’s (Italian) which was very nice and one of the Indian restaurants same side of the road and about four doors up from Mama Mia’s which was also good value. If you want a relaxing break this is the place. We selected this hotel after reading Tripadvisor reviews.
