“wonderful boutique hotel”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Stayed this weekend for our wedding anniversary & had a lovely holiday. The staff are excellent and the hotel is really well done. We booked a suite with a balcony & it was a great room. Large well equipped and the view was simply stunning.

Food is excellent and service wonderful. Roberto the restaurant manager is great.

Definitely recommend

Room Tip: Book a suite. They are worth it

Saw the reviews on here and as my Fiancé loves the I.O.W, I thought it would be a nice place to book for a surprise trip. I booked room 2 which was beautiful and the views stunning. We had dinner in the restaurant last night and again it was amazing. We will definitely return. We go away regularly for weekends and I have to say that this is by far one of the nicest places we have stayed. Thankyou for a lovely couple of days.

We enjoyed our two night break at The Hambrough very much. We had room 5 with a lovely view across the little harbour. Spotless, stylish and well equipped with lovely Molten Brown toiletries and comfy bed. Marred only slightly by a bit of a duff selection of DVDs and perhaps a picture or two could have gone up on the walls which were a little bare. As you come up the stairs a few bleach stains dotted the hall carpets which slightly ruined the otherwise very chic and stylish decor. The food was wonderful. The starters and deserts particularly yummy. Not quite so wowed by either main course but still really top notch prepared by a chef who really cares. The breakfast was superb, nice touches with the smoothies and homemade yogurts. Staff were all great and service was warm. We had great weather and chose to drive to Freshwater and do the 8 mile round trip walk up onto Tennyson Down to the Needles and back. Highly recommended. Ventnor has a charm and is clearly building a bit of a reputation as the foodie capital of the Island. Also paid a visit to the Botanical Gardens which has just started charging entrance. We got a 2:1 deal but in season this will be c£6.75 per adult visitor which is a bit steep. Lovely place for a coffee on the terrace. We had a lovely time and will be recommending others to visit. Thank you!

We recently stayed for two nights at The Hambrough and would highly recommend. The room we stayed in was beautiful with lovely views from the room and balcony on to the sea at Ventnor. The breakfasts were really good quality with plenty of choice. We ate in the restaurant on one evening and had a great meal! Beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were also very friendly. We very much hope to return again.

Had booked online as we had heard that the food was great.We arrived in the first glorious weekend of the year,not a cloud in the sky,but were saddened to find out on arrival that the restaurant was full. A tip to anyone thinking of visiting this hotel,ring them to book dinner.
However every thing else about the hotel was a delight.The staff were excellent even to advising us of a Bistro round the corner where we had a very good dinner.The rooms (7 in all) were clean & spacious,there is T.V.,wi-fi,mini fridge ,tea & a real coffee machine. Also a very comfortable bed.Breakfast made up some part of our disappointment of not having dinner there.

As part of our honeymoon on the Isle of Wight we treated ourselves to a meal at The Hambrough. Well worth it! Food quality was fantastic. We had the tasting menu so a bit of everything as chosen by the chef. The view from the restaurant over Ventnor Bay was perfect as well, helped by the lovely weather we luckily had that day. Highly recommended and would gladly go back. Staff and waiters were great. Will have to try the rooms next time.

Booked through Living Social, my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at this beautiful hotel. We stayed in room 3, the sea view was gorgeous, the bed huge and so comfy, and the seating area meant the room did not feel at all claustrophobic like so many hotel rooms. The option to have your breakfast brought to you as room service at no extra cost was a total luxury, one that we took advantage of both mornings! We also loved the bath robes and Molten Brown miniatures. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough. After two nights away I have come back very relaxed and feeling like I went much further afield!

Ventnor is a pretty little town, all in all I'm very glad that we chose to stay on the south of the island, the pretty villages and bays mean it has a feel of the west country about it!
