“Very Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2008

We arrived very late on a Friday night, and the owners still gave us a warm welcome, with tea! We stayed on the top floor in room three so we had the chance to look at the whole hotel on the way up to our room, and I must say I was very taken back. As mentioned in previous reviews the photos linked on this site must be from the 70's as the hotel is completely different, modern decor but fitting with the age of the hotel. Our room didn't have a sea view but had a terrific view over the Ventor downs. The room was recently decorated and was beautiful. Flat screen TV, massive wardrobe, memory foam mattress (I will have to get one!) and a double shower. Breakfast was lovely and fixed me up for the day, and eating in the sunny breakfast room, looking over the English channel, was a treat. Overall a fantastic place to stay, very nice people and great weather, a really lovely break. Highly recommended!

Just got back from a couple of days staying at the Windsor Carlton. We visit Ventnor regularly but this is the first time in this hotel and we will definitely go back. Stayed in Room 5, lovely sea views, lovely bathroom, in fact could not fault the room at all inc. the flat screen TV and espresso machine. We didn't get to the hotel until very late on the Friday night and our hosts were very welcoming. Good brekkie too, made to order so very fresh and piping hot. The location is fantstic, very close to the High Street with it's shops, pubs etc and newly opened deli/coffee shop that does a very mean cup of coffee, and only a short walk to the Esplanade where we enjoyed some lovely pub grub at the Spyglass.

I could not recommend this hotel highly enough.

We stayed for a weekend in June 2008 in room 5, which is lovely, has fantastic views of the sea and a four-poster bed (certainly NOT IKEA!). Very clean with a good-sized bathroom with bath.

The whole place had recently been refurbished and it has been done to a very high standard.

We had breakfast in the new Breakfast Room , which was very bright and airy. There was plenty of choice and the service was good. The food was also very good and set us up for the day!

All in all we had a lovely stay - great place in a fantastic location - highly recommended.

Although I should point out that TRIP ADVISOR'S details on this hotel are completely wrong as it only had five rooms, not 13 as stated here, did not accept children (one of the reasons we chose it!) and the photos here seem to be of a completely different hotel too!

We stayed at the windsor carlton for a weekend in June 08. We stayed in Room No 1 right on the very top floor with a fantastic view of the sea and beachfront. The room was a good size but the bathroom was very small. For me it was fine but for my husband he found it a squeeze in the shower. Breakfast is really good. Theres a very good menu available, full of variety.

It is a short downward stroll to the beachfront which is full of great restaurants. Its a bit harder coming back up the hill. The town is just around the corner with the bus stop taking you to all major towns. It was quite quiet when we were here in Ventnor but probably as the weather wasnt that nice.

Overall we had a nice relaxing weekend away from busy London.

Stayed for one night in June 2006 a very clean pleasant hotel fine for a stopover. The area outside it looks very downmarket with a small cramped car park in front of the hotel. Room was clean with what could be decribed as an IKEA four poster bed. Tea and coffee making facilities. Bathroom had constant hot water. Pleasant breakfast. Only gripe is that the room did not have a power point near a mirror which would be useful for a hairdryer. Nevertheless they are nice people and make you feel welcome.
