We have just come back from a 5 day break at Broadway Park Hotel, Sandown, Isle of Wight.
We traveled with Shearings by coach and we cannot fault the driver, Paul, who was very pleasant, informative and helpful.
When it came to the hotel we were very disappointed, room 119 was a complete let down particularly the bathroom, no shower except a plastic shower head that would fit on to the taps but when you attached it it blew off the taps and was no where near long enough to shower under and there was no where to attach it anyway.
We asked if we could change rooms as both of us find it difficult to get in and out of bath but were told there were no rooms available, bathroom was also mouldy and not clean.
The bedroom was not being cleaned as we spotted a cobweb under the dressing table which looks as if it had been there some weeks by the size of it. Heating was the form of an oil filled mobile radiator. We opted for the drinks offer of £30.00 each which allows 4 drinks each per night but what you were'nt told was you were limited to certain drinks if you wanted for example a Guiness you had to pay an upgrade of £1.00 which was not explained to us at time of booking.
Resturant staff very pleasant, food OK for money paid, bar staff OK.
All in all loved Isle of Wight and Shearings coach travel but not hotel.
