Ventnor Towers Hotel
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Ventnor
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We stayed in a family room, there was plenty of space for us and our 2 children aged 9 and 11. The decor needed an update but the beds were very comfortable. We stayed on a half-board basis and the food was lovely. There are wonderful views of the sea from the hotel but for the beach itself we went to other towns. The swimmimg pool was great and we tried snooker on the full-sized table. The staff really make this hotel though and they were always very friendly and helpful.

We have returned to this hotel over the last 4 years for a long weekend break. The views are amazing with plenty of opportunities for beautiful scenic walks without having to get in the car and drive. The hotel is comfortable and welcoming with high standards of cleanliness and the food is always delicious. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly without being intrusive. If you want a family run hotel with character and atmosphere this would be an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Sea views are amazing

We were looking to spend a long weekend away at an un complicated and unpretentious English sea side hotel and the Ventnor Towers was exact what we were looking for. We had booked in advance and asked for a room with a sea view and a bath, we go that, a superb view and a balcony thrown in too!
Yes the decor is tired but in this corporately sanitised and uniform world, tired can be also characterful. There is wi-fi, mainly in the main lounge downstairs, as we were in the room above I found that placing devices on the floor enabled connection. Mobile phone reception is random, non existent in the main building and variable outside, best by hole three of the pitch and putt golf course.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, fantastic location and very good water pressure both hot and cold, the bath filled in record time!

Room Tip: Room 7, great sea view around the sides of the Holme Oak

We stayed in a family room and although the decor of the room was a little shabby and the curtains were so thin they didn't keep any light out of the room in the mornings, there was plenty of space for ourselves and two boys (7 and 11),the bedding was fresh and clean and we had lovely views of the sea.
The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were lovely. The boys used the pool in the evenings for playing although we couldn't stay in long as the sun had left it and they got cold. I imagine in the sunshine it would be lovely. The table tennis table was stored away so we couldn't play that and we didn't have a go at the tennis or golf.
You had to walk into Ventnor to get to the beach so we tended to drive to Shanklin where there was more parking and more to do.
We spent most of the time out and about, so as a base to stay for a short family holiday the hotel was great. The people make this hotel the pleasant experience it was.

We stayed here at the weekend for our friends wedding. The location is really good we had a taxi from Shanklin but caught the bus from the top of the road which took us back to Shanklin Train station. The views from the hotel are lovely and the food was really good and staff very friendly. The rooms are tired and in need of updating but where clean and the shower was lovely one downside was that you could here everyone else moving around and talking in their rooms. Having stayed in Shanklin the previous night for half the price I would say that this hotel does not justify the extra expense but a very pleasent experience all round.

This hotel really could be something special if it wasn't so tired inside. The location is great - just a short walk to ventnor with lovely views over the sea. Inside it is very dated and in places just shabby. The food is really good and the staff cannot do enough for you but this doesn't make up for the price of the rooms I'm afraid.

We have stayed at Ventnor Towers 4 times now, we go back because of the lovely atmosphere, the friendly and very helpful staff, the breath taking view and the food. The Hotel itself is a little tired, but you soon see past that. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We had a spacious family room, with a very nice bathroom.

Nothing is too much trouble, the swimming pool is nice, we used the tennis court and sat in the main lounge watching the world cup football.

The food is great, we travel a lot and have never had steak like it anywhere else.

The grounds are great for children to run around in, while you enjoy the view.
