“Pretty bad room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

We stayed at the ventnor towers for a wedding last weekend.When we were shown to our room it was very cold.It was dark outside,the curtains hadn't been closed.The room was very cold,even though the radiator was on.I went to flush the toilet and it didn't work,we told reception and they told us that the toilet had been turned off as the overflow pipe outside was dripping too much.They did turn the toilet on,however it wasn't right and the following morning was blocked!!We had to get a plug in heater for the room as it just didn't warm up.In the night the heating turned off and we woke up in the morning very cold indeed.All these problems,once told to the staff were fixed,however,there shouldn't be problems when you stay in a hotel.The room,although spacious,was very tired.The curtains,sofas and bedding were very old.The wallpaper was peeling off in the bathroom.In the bedroom there were various damp marks,and a hole in the ceiling.

Room Tip: Don't have room 3.

Stayed here for one night at a Wedding gig. Difficult to review for a number of reasons.
A tired sort of place, but with a kind of Agatha Christie feel , more 2 star than 3 , but a kind of atmosphere that was strangely comforting and relaxing. Yes the place needed painting from head to toe, carpets more tired and faded than I was, plumbing half up the shoot, but a nice spot on the cliff and with a good sea view unless one had a room with the damn great tree outside. Bit of a ramble to find the bedroom but its built on a slope so is split level with knobs on. And has had bits added here and there. Bits dropping off here and there too.
Food great but sometimes a bit of a wait. Staff very nice but not enough of them. Bed comfy. Tea/Coffee making facs. and TV. No mobile signal ! which everybody moans about but its great to get away from twerps playing or shouting on their phones all day long for once. Heating on all the time ( December) so nice and warm.
Overall a comfy place with good food and staff but don't expect much modern stuff, expect a 2 star worn out look with a good relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: Ask for a Sea view without a tree in front and the higher the better ( if you can do stairs )

Like the next 2 reviewers we spent a night at Ventnor Towers as part of a local offer and enjoyed a murder mystery evening. The Hotel owners and staff are warm and friendly. Dinner was OK, Breakfast was excellent. The Hotel and bedroom furniture does need updating but eveything worked. The hotels main selling point is its position on the cliff and the stunning views. Recommended if you can get a special deal.

Room Tip: Grab a room with a sea view

Just spent a great night at a murder mystery event run at this hotel. The entertainment was well organized and acted and topped off with great food in a charming atmosphere. The hotel is a little 'tired' but was spotlessly clean, in a lovely position with beautiful sea views and nice grounds. The food from the cream tea, piping hot dinner with yummy peach crumble dessert and well cooked full English breakfast was delicious. Excellent tea and coffee. The staff worked very hard, nothing was too much trouble. We were in a spacious room which would sleep 5 easily. Although we didn't use the facilities, there is a pool and pitch and putt course and the beach is just minutes away. Would recommend this hotel, accept its quaintness and enjoy the quality they give.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

We stayed for only one night as this was part of our deal... We had a fabulous 3 course meal well presented (hot plates!!) And great evening entertainment.
The hotel was warm and inviting to be fair our bedroom was dated and also the bathroom BUT as both my husband I said it was very clean and the bed was comfortable the shower was hot and we had everything we needed.
The staff are also a credit to the owners all that we came across on our short stay were polite and helpful.

Our bride made an excellent choice in the Ventnor Towers Hotel. It's friendly, characterful atmosphere enhanced a perfect family wedding day; from checking in at Reception onwards. Felt like the hotel owner was throwing open his home to us; the staff were eager to help when needed and otherwise left us to it. Beautiful setting and views. We would all love to go back for a holiday visit sometime.
