we had an awful experience at this bnb, they are not friendly at all and the rooms are so dirty, after reading some bad reviews we still went with them as we thought that we will have a nice time but no other customers were right because i would never recommend this bnb to anybody, if you have kids then please be careful due to unhygienic bedrooms and toilets

Room Tip: dirty bathrooms

We recently stayed at the Mayfair and on arrival found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.The hotel is in a great location,close to the beach and town centre.The rooms were pretty basic and could do with a little care and attention,but you only really need the basics when on holiday as you are out and about most of the time.The food is excellent and always piping hot with very efficient waiting staff who are always happy to help.We had read a few bad reviews about the Mayfair but are glad we ignored them as we really enjoyed our stay.The Mayfair was really good value and we would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here with National Holidays, location great, but thats about it really. Hotel was dirty needed a good clean. Our roon was small, dirty and the bathroom was tiny. The staff were unhelpfull and many seemed to have a chip on there shoulder. The meals were ok, as was the evening entertainment. I love the Ise of Whight i ve been many times but this is one hotel i will not be returning to. Very poor with very poor service and poor staff.

On booking The Mayfair Hotel, we were a little worried after reading the reviews.
Everything at the Mayfair was first class from day one. The food was served up piping hot, and the service was second to none. We have stayed at other Hotels and by far this Hotel is one where we shall book again. On talking to other residents staying there we did not hear of a single complaint. This is a 2** Hotel and great value for money.
The swimming pool is out of action at the moment so if you like a swim check to see if its in operation.

My friend and i were very impressed with the helpfullness of the family that own the hotel, they were lovely and went out of their way to help us, the rooms were spotless, the beds were very comfy and the food was very nice, this hotel doesnt deserve the negative reviews it has received

Not having made any advance reservations, it was a wonder that we were able to manage a decent place for the family. Conveniently located, its a relaxing walk from the railway station. The rooms are a bit cramped but one can "take it or leave it" The room heating and bathroom facilties are also not A-class but the sincere and accomodating staff tries hard to get things in order. One has to remember that one is paying for a budget hotel. The overall experience was memorable.
It is also quite close to the Esplanade and the beach. The Esplanade leads to the Shanklin Chine, a leafy gorge with walk throught the trees, waterfalls, slopes. Immediately on exiting, there is place for relaxation with chairs under the sun, an interesting golf course and lovely ice-creams.
