This was a very nice, comfortable hotel with excellent service. The room was large with a good view. Vey comfortable bed and adequate en suite facilities. It would have been nice to have a dressing table and chair in the room but this omission was far outweighed by the kindness and generosity of the owner. The hotel was run by the owner and his daughter and nothing was too much trouble. The dining room was bright and comfortable and the food well cooked and presented. Really good sized portions and no quibble if you wanted more.
Sandown is a very convenient place to be to visit most of the interesting places on the island. Not much to do in the evenings but this was not a problem as the owner of the hotel kept us amused most evenings with anecdotes from his interesting and varied career. It was great to have someone so willing with whom to chat!
Having had car problems mid-week, the owner was kindness itself, driving us to a local car hire firm and also looking after us magnificently on the day of our departure when we were awaiting AA assistance.
All in all, a very relaxing week's holiday with charming company. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Chester Lodge Hotel to my friends and should we wish to stay in Sandown on another occasion, then this would be the first choice.
