“Dont try the chicken curry”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Ok, the thing to remember about this hotel is it is only a 2* hotel.
This is a family run business, the Asian family that operate it are very friendly, and care that you are enjoying your stay. the rooms are large but old fashioned.
Our first night our coach was three hours late, and the hotel had kept our dinners warm, unfortunately it showed, the onion bhaji's we're greasy and crunchy, but there not meant to be,
the food is low quality, almost like a rushed home cooked meal. but then they go and suprise you, there roast turkey dinner was really nice.
the beds are made daily, the towels fresh every day,
over all, if you want a clean cheap stay then give this a try.
oh, unlike most hotels, this one does not rip you off at there nicely stocked bar. Carlsburg £3.00 a pint in the hotel, but £3.50 down the road, so, if they have entertainment on they in for the night, you will enjoy yourself,
On a negative note. My wife is on crutches and needs the use of a wheelchair, the hotel does not have what would be regarded as a disabled room, no disabled toilets, although we requested grab rails for the shower, they did not supply any, this meant my wife had to sit on the shower floor to clean herself.
although the en-suits have been replaced recently, it is clear the cheapest option was used, shower doors not smooth and can be difficult to close.
rooms have three beds, so suitable for small families and friends

Room Tip: we had room four, this room faces the rear of the hotel, but right next to the lift

We stayed at this hotel last week for four days. Food was excellent,waiter service by Alex was great, could not do enough for you.The hotel itself was very clean as were the bedrooms, but decor wise needs updating, also electrics need looking into as are a bit dodgy.The decking area was untidy as there were old paint brushes left around, and bare fences, a few shrubs and flower boxes would have brightened it up, very drab.but, the new owners are working very hard to transform the whole place and it takes time, what with great bar prices and good food all at a budget price we enjoyed our stay .

The mystery 4 day break was excellent value.....our waiter, Alex, couldn't do enough for us (thanks, Alex :-) ) - food was good, room was nicely decorated, staff were helpful & friendly - the nearby town had enough to keep you occupied however, the steep hill to come back to the hotel could be difficult for some people. Our driver, Mike, was brilliant, the day trips and journey to & from our hotel wre very smooth. WELL WORTH THE MONEY - This is my 2nd time to the Isle of Wight with Leisure Time, I would definately go again - thank you !
