For the price we paid this was just right. The decor was tired, old-fashioned but clean and everything worked. The swimming pool was great. Quite funny over the top Greek decor in the basement with deckchairs. However, rather effective and we had a laugh there. Entertainment was alright and the location was just right inbetween the town centre of Shanklin and it's lovely beach.
Also, the hotel was right next door to three different take aways which was handy.
The bar was not overpriced for a hotel. There was a childrens room which was sweet for our 4 year old but probably not for anyone over 6. Apart from the pool it's basically a bed and breakfast. You get what you pay for and we had a lovely time.

Room Tip: Family room was unexpectedly good with a connecting room.

I would just like to take the opportunity to say how much we enjoyed the stay at the hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful with all our needs and enquires. Although the rooms were quite basic they had everything that we required.
The rooms were very clean and tidy and had recently been redecorated to a good level. The food was very good, with a good choice of evening meals that were served on hot plates and in a timely manner.
We found the lady manager to be most helpful and knowledgeable and made time for the guests.
The indoor swimming pool is lovely, the room where the pool is, is heated as well as the pool.
All in all we enjoyed our stay there and would certainly recommend it to our friends.

Simple words of advice....DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL.

Ignore these words and you will be sorry

As of May 2011 I can assure you that this hotel has not been updated since May 1911.

Masking tape over holes in the carpets
leaking taps
Faulty TV's
No hot water
NO SHOWERS - NO SHOWERS - Just a bath which was COLD!
Food was disgusting

From the outside this place is terribly dated and looks in disrepair. Our room was clean and comfortable, but dated again. Also the twin beds were the smallest singles we had ever seen! The TV was v basic with bad reception. The chap on the desk was rather over familiar at times and we tried to aviod him wherever possible. BUT...the breakfasts were splendid and well worth staying for. On the whole, no frills place to stay that does the job. They need to spend some money on the place however because the outside really put us off!

The hotel itself seemed ok. Dated decor but comfortable enough bed and facilities, although they were tight with their biscuits!
The freaky thing was the owner. He was gloating over the weather forecast to anyone going to the IOW festival and chose breakfast to very loudly tell one poor couple what he thought he saw on the CCTV of the swimming pool! Causing great embarassment to the rest of us trying to have a quiet start to the day. It was not the way to deal with things and left us all with an comfortable feeling of voyeurism.

We booked the trip through our local coach company, very nice coach and very obliging driver.
The hotel was clean, the food was very good, the service was exellent and the staff were very friendly. For the price I paid absolutely no complaints at all. It is situated about five minutes from the beach, the town centre and the railway station.
First time I have been to the Isle of Wight, what a lovely place, I shall certainly be going back there.
