Reviewed 30 October 2013

Four nights at a remarkably good price (though November looks even more of a bargain than October). We had a great bedroom, very large bathroom, and the whole hotel was scrupulously clean and polished. Very good quality food, all home cooked, and friendly staff. What not to like?
No criticisms at all except that the lighting in our bedroom was not very good which did not help reading but that is a tiny quibble. We shall return.

Room Tip: Large rooms at the front on the first floor.

We stayed here on a two night special with the ferry thrown in. It was good value and a lovely old building. We had the front bedroom with a balcony, we could just see the sea!
It was a large bedroom and very clean. The shower was not very efficient but the water was hot.
We had dinner as part of the special offer. It was OK, five courses, but we felt it would have been better if there had been less courses and more choice for each course. The food was hot but fairly bland.
Dinner was between 6.30-7.15 and after that the place was dead. We tried taking a walk out, but the sea front was a long way to walk and it was very dark with nobody about.
We loved the help yourselves bar and the staff were very friendly. Good value, if a little old fashioned.

Room Tip: The ones at the front have a nice view.

We had a wonderful staff at the St Maur. The staff were always friendly and polite and super helpful. The rooms were clean with plenty of supplies (tea/biscuits, towels etc). The hotel is in a great location close to Ventnor centre. There is a comfy living room with games and books and an honesty bar with a great selection! We'll definitely be returning.

Just came back from a wonderful long weekend staying in the St Maur Hotel. We went with another family and we were all very impressed by the cleanliness and interior of the rooms and friendliness of all the staff working there. All the people staying in the hotel were very friendly as well which made the weekend more pleasant. We very much enjoyed the fabulous english breakfasts and full on dinners all at an extremely reasonable price. Highlights include relaxing downstairs drinking cups of tea and coffee in the evenings as well as walking to the nearby beach and observing the stunning views of the cliffs and sea. There is lots to do with your children close by including water sports, climbing, crazy golf and lots more. All in all everything is done perfectly with absolutely nothing to complain about when staying in St Maur and we hope to return next year!

Room Tip: Room five is the biggest out of all nine rooms if you want more space however they are all lovely!

We were impressed with David and his staff who made our stay delightful. We had a room right at the top of the house, which was hard work after walking around the various places of interest. Having said this, the room was always sparkling clean, the breakfast was lovely with plenty to eat and lots of choice and the holiday location was very relaxing. Thank you so much

My husband and I returned to this Hotel for a second visit accompanied by our 2 grandchildren aged 6 and 9 years. We were not disappointed. All the staff were, once again, helpful and friendly. The two children are not easy feeders but they were asked every day what they would like for evening meal. My granddaughter said that the breakfasts were "what dreams are made of". The children quickly settled into their twin bedded en suite room and we were only a few steps away in our double en suite room. When asked if they would return in the future, without hesitation they both said yes. David certainly maintains a very high standard at very fair prices. We will return.

Room Tip: Room 11 is twin bedded, very light and airy and quiet. Room 14 has a balcony, is darker and noise c...
