Reviewed 30 December 2013

During a short December stay in the hotel, I was very pleased with the attention to detail of the staff - for example, on our arrival where we were offered a choice of two rooms: a larger one (as we had 3 people in the group) or one on a lower floor (for convenience); at breakfast the next day, the high chair had been laid out for us already; and on check-out, everything was ready and processed beforehand. Even before we arrived, we received confirmation in the form of an old fashioned letter confirming the booking - quaint, but a great nice touch.

Our stay in the hotel really only used the basic facilities: bedroom and breakfast. The bedroom was in a large converted lounge room in the "annex" which appears to be a large converted house. The bedroom was spacious, with a slightly incongruous decommissioned fireplace and freesat TV. For the cold wintry night we stayed, the room remained nicely warm throughout. The bathroom, fully functional (and decent shower) was a little small, but totally acceptable.

The hotel throughout was very clean, and though a bit chintzy in choice of carpet & wallpaper, and mildly tired decor in places, it compared well with the other hotels I have stayed at in Ventnor - especially for the price. And setting it apart was the potential of an outdoor swimming pool (not in December!) and fitness room.

For the quality, service and reasonable price, plus good location (5 mins walk from sea front on the steep path), I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here with our 3-year old for one night in November for a birthday celebration at the hotel. There was a large group of us so the hotel was busy. Nevertheless the hotel staff were very attentive throughout our stay and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The hotel was clean and our room was spacious. It is well decorated and in a good state of repair, despite what spme older reviews say. The room was warm (not hot) and had a basic en-suite (shower only). Breakfast is cooked to order but arrives quickly. There are also cereals, yogurt and fresh fruit which you can help yourself to. The hotel has a pool table near the bar and there is also a spa and outdoor swimming pool (although this is closed during the winter). Will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to the island.

We stayed in the Eversley out of season in October, which meant the place was just a bit under-occupied! The staff were all warm and welcoming, and very helpful - always friendly and always happy to provide assistance.

We'd arrived with a ten month old baby in tow, and we'd requested a room near the lounge so we could use our baby monitor. We were duly put in room 2 which was next to the lounge, but had good solid walls so you weren't disrupted by noise.

Breakfast was individually cooked, with fruit salad on offer as well. As well as the obvious English Breakfast, there was a veggie sausage, kippers and haddock as well. Our son always had a napkin put on his highchair, which was a nice touch.

We only ate in the restaurant one night - our final one. Normally the restaurant menu doesn't start until 7pm (although they have a bar meals menu) but they brought it forward for us so we could dine earlier and get our son to bed. The restaurant was perhaps a tad old fashioned hotel food - one meat, fish and a vegetable course, with vegetables. Nothing amazingly adventurous, but I guess it depends what you prefer. Portion-wise, it's perhaps more geared towards people taking the three or five course menu rather than buying two courses individually.

I stayed on my own for 4 nights during September. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, nothing seemed to be too much trouble and they were always very obliging. The room was clean and bright. The food at the hotel was excellent although I heard a few people ask for honey at breakfast. The hotel is in a good position at the top of a very steep hill down to the seafront and on same level as town centre that is in easy walking distance.

We stayed at the Hotel for two nights over the August Bank Holiday. The Hotel sits at the top of a steep hill leading down to the beach. Ventnor town can be readily accessed along a fairly flat road about three hundred yards away. The dining room is pleasant and clean as were all the other parts of the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bedroom was a little dated, but clean, as was the en-suite bathroom. The rooms lacked home comforts. Overall we were pleased with the hotel and its value for money. The breakfasts were very good and there was a good choice. There is an outside pool, although it seemed to be in the shade quite a lot of the time. I would recommend the hotel to others and use it again.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have any real views and you cannot get a see view. Request a room facing the road.

two adults two kids stayed here aug 10 for a week , Absolutley brilliant, the room was really comfy and the hospitality was fab, Ventnor is a great place to stay but quite hilly. The pool at the hotel was lovely and the food was A1. Our room(23) was really good as we have teenage kids , there was two in one so we had our own space . There was even a cliff walk right outside our room. Couldnt fault the hotel it was lovely.Breakfast was nice with lots of choices although it could have been a little hotter,The pool in the garden was well kept and spacious.the gardens were beautiful.
