“The Auckland Hotel gave exceptionally good value and service”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

The Auckland Hotel exceeded all my expectations even after reading favourable reviews in Tripadvisor .Pleasant situation in a quiet road opposite beautiful old church and truly a very short walk to the sea and the lift to the beach - on the budget of this trip with Just Go! Holidays I was immediately surprised with the location, followed by excellent first impressions of the hotel. Greeted by very friendly and helpful staff, including luggage carried to our rooms, I was immediately impressed by my single room. Though small it was light, had nice decor and rose curtains and quilted bedspread, and more modern fitted cupboard and drawer space than I had ever before had in a single room. The en suite had a bath with a hand shower attachment and all looked new and spotlessly clean. There was a flat screen TV and tea and coffee making equipment. The view from the window was over the garden. Downstairs the accommodation was very comfortable, the dining room attractively laid up and the bar service very friendly. Outside there was a most enjoyable sun terrace with plenty of tables and chairs. The meal menus I thought were admirably imaginative with more choice than I would have thought possible considering the budget involved. The three course evening meal was always well presented and cooked and with a good variety (eg different soup, main course and desserts every evening), including a choice of salads suitable for vegetarians. Service was beautifully organised, very prompt and always exactly what I had ordered. The breakfast was equally well done, with the full breakfast always beautifully cooked and as you wished it with the choice of boiled eggs if you preferred, a choice of cereal or fruit juice, tea or coffee (I had coffee and it was good) My bedroom was kept very clean the whole 5 days. There were two entertainment evenings, the first was by such a good singer that when I came downstairs after he had started singing I thought it was a professional recording. (I missed the second evening entertainment.) At such an excellent value for money, II find it very hard to think of a single negative about the hotel.

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem for you take note that there is no lift and ask for a room with the least st...

We have just had a long weekend stay at the Auckland Hotel. We had a very nice room with a balcony and comfortable beds. The hotel is very clean and has very friendly staff also serving good food. We had an extremely enjoyable stay. We will return in the near future. Special mention for the very efficient waitresses.

We have just returned from a short break at The Auckland, we were very pleasantly surprised at the value for money. We had a very nice 2nd floor room with a large balcony and views of the sea and the cliffs at Sandown. The food was tasty, plentiful and always arrived nice and hot.
The staff were very friendly and efficient too.
We will certainly return and are looking forward to it.

Room Tip: 2nd floor front rooms have a good view, if you can manage the stairs.

My parents and i stayed at this Hotel last week travelling with just go holidays. We found the food very good and the rooms were kept very clean. My parents had a balcony room which meant they had a extra few stairs to climb but i think they found it worth it, its such a shame this hotel has no lift as many of the party found the stairs a problem and no toilet facilities on the ground floor!
The staff were all very helpful even the room lady helped my parents with their cases on the last morning! Overall we enjoyed our stay here

Very nice hotel, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and very warm. Food was beautifully cooked and presented, although the portions were very small for people with good appetites.

Our main problem was the stairs and NO LIFT. Some bedrooms are on the 2nd floor which caused problems for some of our party.

Every member of staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Room Tip: Unsuitable for people with mobility problems because there is no lift and the path to the hotel from...

Thank you for your response. We're pleased you had a good stay with us and appreciate our hard working staff.

Its a shame our dinner portion sizes disappointed you, however, rather surprised at this comment, as we've always been informed by other guests that our dinner portions are far too generous.

Thank you for your review.
