“Aqua Hotel IOW”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Nice fluffy white towels changed daily, very good food, staff very friendly and evening entertainment excellent...an absolute bargain!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony, but if too expensive ask for room no. 7 (it has a sea view)

Always have a great stay here. Rooms very comfortable and very clean. The food is really nice. Breakfast is enough to keep you full until teatime. As a lone woman, they make me feel very welcome and safe. The best part is you can fall out of bed into the sea for a swim if you desire or just sit on the terrace while the world goes by! Very relaxing. Only one downside no regular entertainment at weekends in the evenings.

We just came home after spending 2 nights at the aqua. It's a lovely hotel of just 22 rooms. Obviously we can only judge according to the one we stayed in, room 21. Some reviews have commented that the rooms are small and dated. We had a triple room with a double bed for me and my wife and a single for our daughter, if you plan on staying away from the beach and other attractions in isle.of wight then I can imagine the room being a little small, however if like us you are using the room as a base and a bedroom (after all that's what it is) then its perfectly sized. A nice.size en suite a tv small wardrobe and plenty of drawer space. The rooms decor is a little old fashioned with chintzy wallpaper and a floral border running through the middle but its charming and we liked it and the small wireless above the bed was a great touch. It was very clean and in great condition and the beds were really comfy and I have had several back operations so a comfortable bed is very important for me so what more could you ask for? The breakfast was lovely and the staff were extremely friendly helpful and polite and even swapped our ferry from lymington to Portsmouth at the last minute to get us home quicker. All in all we would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here last minute on a motorcycle trip with my spouse going around the isle of wight

- £82 for 2, including breakfast, and a twin bed (overpriced!)
-wifi is OK only in one area in the bar
-chris, the bartender, is funny :)
-on the water, very pretty area, easy to find, outdoor parking, near Shanklin Chine waterfall
-rooms need an update but was an average small room with bed, small desk, and shower
-we paid separately for dinner as it wasn't included in our stay price -very good food-
-breakfast was delicious, proper table setting, servers, great chefs here, 4 star restaurant in my opinion

-NOTE: stayed 2 nights at almost any hotel on the isle of wight, then get in touch with your hotel, and they will pay for the ferry to and from isle of wight (we found this out toolate, after staying 2 nights in separate hotels)

The staff at the hotel was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very nice there was plenty to choose from. The hotel is located right outside the beach which is ideal. The only negative was that the security alarm went off early in the morning and the staff never said anything the next day. My overall comment is that i enjoyed my stay and is a nice hotel to go and relax and that would go back again.
