Ventnor Towers Hotel
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Ventnor
Reviewed 22 August 2011

The bedroom furnishings and fittings are dated, and the bar is tired, and the front view of the hotel is disappointing. HOWEVER, the grounds and staff made up for this. The communal lounge is well furnished and very comfortable, the owners are lovely people, and they have the most laid back dog I've ever met! the gardens are a little overgrown but my children loved exploring it and the freedom to roam. (Parents of younger children beware -tthe lawn ends on the cliff top and the fence is rickety). There's even an area for kids to play football. The pool is beautifully kept. There are a few things which could easily be done to improve the overall appearance without too much expense - the hotel sign had a plywood panel covering the old Best Western logo; there was a broken pane of glass in the toilet (?) window; there were old dining room chairs piled up in an open store room by the garden path; and stacked chairs at the side of the dining room which make it feel like a school or village hall. The views are fabulous though, and the cliff walk to Ventnor is lovely though not do-able in the dark! Our family room was very spacious with great views on three sides. My children really want to go back there! One other thing - the coat and hat stand in the hall would look lovely with some character hats and walking sticks in it, rather than sadly empty.

This was a great family hotel, great location, lovely pool & golf facilities. Got a little worried with other comments detailing how tired & dated the hotel was. Yes the hotel needs some updating, but it was very clean & comfortable. My children enjoyed the room (their ebd was hidden in the wardrobe). The staff were friendly, as for the grumpy old man, he wasn't grumpy at all, real lovely gent! Lovely hotel, great breakfast, clean & we're going back again. Definately reccommend it!!!

We loved the Ventnor Towers, ok some of the public areas were a bit tired but this was more than outweighed by the friendliness and can't do enough for you attitude of the staff. The outstanding view from our suntrap balcony and the beautiful grounds (well kept pool, pitch and putt) and the wonderful cooked to order full English.

On a practical base the 3 for 2 nights offer made it very good value and the on-site hotel parking is a real bonus in Ventnor.

Room Tip: request a balcony

Stayed for a few days in July with two children and had a fantastic time. The kids keep asking when we are going back. Such lovely people, couldn't be more helpful. We are definately going back.

Ventnor Towers has a charm all of it's own, with no corporate image just a feeling of faded grandeur. If you have young children this is the place for you, a real home from home. The delightful owners couldn't have been more charming and helpful, letting the children be children and allowing the adults time to really relax. Such super staff too.

On first approaching the hotel the sign lets it down as there was wood hanging off on one side thought the sign should have been made to use the entire space so we both thought OMG whats this gonna be like.On entering we were made very welcome room was excellent with the most perfect view overlooking the grounds and out to sea, it was very quite and peacefull.No problems with anything,breakfast was very nice,the building is weathered outside probably due to being on the very edge of the coast,otherwise a nice place to stay with nice people.Lots of stairs could be an issue

Room Tip: ask for a balcony view most impressive

We visited this hotel last week and although we knew it was an old hotel we didn't expect 20 years old in decor!
We are not very fussy but the picteures in the website of the modern rooms do not reflect the rooms available,in fact we were told there are only 2 rooms of that standard!
It would be advised to find out which room you are getting to avoid diappointment as we were,we were also told there was nothing that could be done about the bathroom which was soooo old i did't want to use it!
No apology was given and i was told we could book out if we wanted because this was the best room!
The high price of the room was unjustified!! to say the least.
Breakfast was again not as stated on the menu,where it stated pastries and croissants there was not any,and it took a very long time to prepare.
Please be aware that it will not be a case of oh it can't be that bad because it was!
Staff,other than the grumpy man who was no help at all,were pleasant.
