First of all I'd like to say that every female member of staff that dealt with us were lovely, however, there was a male member of staff which I considered to be very rude. The pool was closed at 8 o'clock when it was meant to be open until ten, when i enquired at the bar, he was very cold and acted as if it was an inconvenience to him. After our swim, we were changing in the changing room, when we heard someone enter the pool room, then with no warning, the changing room door was pushed open by the previously mentioned male member of staff, with no word spoken and no apology, he closed the door again and left. We were lucky we were fully clothed, otherwise it would have ended differently. The only other mention is that the hotel was rather full with oaps! It almost made us feel uncomfortable, however we got in with it! Breakfast was average, however service was always great. Dinner was somewhat bland and tasteless, however edible. All decor seemed ancient and chairs felt as if they were about to break! The room was clean and tidy, however still fitting with the old decor, including a very wonky toilet and an incredibly small bathtub. I would like to reiterate that all members of staff apart from the one mentioned were all very helpful and pleasant.

Stayed: July 2014

Stayed at the Brunswick for a long weekend and what a wonderful time we had. We stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast basis and the food was of a good standard. We were upgraded to a seaview room at no extra charge. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, especially by Julie. The facilities at the hotel are above average for a three star hotel, including the indoor and outdoor pools, snooker table ,and the lovely lounge and bar area. I would like to give a special mention to Zoe in the restaurant who could not do enough for us. Only one niggle there needs to be a shower curtain in room 35 so you can actually use the shower whilst standing.

We were probably a strange party for this type of hotel being a made up of 14 older gay men celebrating a friend's 70th birthday. This is a kind of tradition as, for his 60th, we did the Isle of Man! We were rather LOUD I must admit but the hotel seemed to take everything in their stride and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful as were the other guests.

Personally I would visit this hotel again and look forward to it.

Room Tip: I had room 22, ground floor and facing car park. Fine for me with a good shower, quiet and slept well. Would also mention that IOW tour bus stops right outside, great for travellers without access to a car.

Visited the Brunswick last year, returned in May with two of the Grandchildren for a 2 night break. Nothing has changed thank goodness, the really friendly and helpful receptionists ensure the best deal and options, including arranging discounted ferry travel. Housekeeping staff keep the whole place very clean and presentable and the small indoor pool is a real bonus. The food is varied and well presented and the kids could mix and match from the kids menu and the 'adult' one. The hotel is ideally placed with a lift or stairs down to the beach/arcade/amusements, it's also a short stagger into town. My only suggestion/moan (again) is ditch the tasteless single serving wines in plastic bottles and get in a couple of house wines to sell by the glass - much better. Thanks Brunswick - see you again!!

Room Tip: Room 8 is a large family room - a double and 2 singles but right above the reception entrance so potential for incoming guest noise at night.

From the moment we arrived at this hotel, we knew we were going to have a lovely time here. We were met with a lovely smile from Rachel who showed us around the hotel and then our room at the top of the hotel. Wow! It was terrific. Loads of room, spotlessly clean and comfortable. It was just what we wanted. We are very fussy about cleanliness and having a comfortable bed and this was just what we wanted. I noticed on one review before writing this that someone complained about the lack of curtains. I was most surprised to read this as there are perfectly adequate blinds and we werent troubled at all. We had access to a lovely private lounge at the top of the hotel and a balcony where we could sit or stand to survey the sea views. Terrific! The week only got better!! The food was excellent with loads of choice and the service was quick and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for our waitress, Beth. It was a fantastic holiday. The weather was a bit mixed but it was easy to cope with that because the hotel was so nice and comfortable. A BIG BIG thank you to everyone there for making our stay so very enjoyable. We would certainly return this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Room 39 is the room we had and we were extremely pleased with this room and the lovely views.
