“Great short break away.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a 5 day trip with Shearings, it was our 5th time as as before we really enjoyed it. The hotel is set in lovely gardens which even at this time of year were nice to see.We were in room 104 which was fine, although there were steps to the bathroom, this was not a problem for us but might be for anyone with mobility problems. The bed was comfy and had lovely pillows, bedding and towels spotless. If you look closely, yes the rooms could do with a bit of TLC, but they are clean. The meals are very good especially breakfast, good quality bacon, I enjoyed the liver and bacon , a real treat ( don't have at home, hubby doesn't like it ) and the waffle ice cream and blackcurrants was delicious. Compliments to the chef.
The drinks vouchers are a real bonus, we had 3 alcoholic drinks and a cappuccino before bed.
Enjoyed the Walzing waters, and Godshill was a nice place to visit.Ryde was bigger then expected, plenty of shops and nice cafes down at the pier.
The entertainment was the best we have seen on any tour we have done, especially the comedian who was on Tues night.
Usually I have nothing but praise for the Shearings drivers but this time we were very disappointed in our driver Stuart. We had no information from him at all, in fact the full day outing was done in silence, other then informing us of times to be back at the coach, We have always found the drivers to be very informative, but we went to the Isle of Wight knowing nothing and came back he same. To be fair to Stuart I understood it wasn't his normal tour, but do think he should have tried to find out a bit about the island to pass on.
This has not put us off booking again , and we are already talking abiut which to book next. Well done Shearings.
Forgot to mention our waitress, dont know her name table 59. She was an absolute joy to see in a morning, always cheerful and helpful.

The problem with Tripavisor is a few can speak for all even if their views are not shared by all.
Most people who have enjoyed their holiday can't be bothered to make a comment.
You can have a room of 200 people plus with 75% enjoying the comedy and a few old fuddy duddies who don't like it.

First time with Shearings,3rd - 7th March what an excellent impression the Broadway Park made to us, (2 couples), nice location, 5 minutes walk from station, 10 minutes to beach. very clean rooms with tea/coffee, plenty of hot water for shower in afternoon but couldn`t get any in morning before breakfast, i don`t mind a cool wash though lol. enormous breakfast with plenty of choice,likewise dinner, loved the liver & bacon & the cod was succulent, i couldn`t belive the size of the Belgian waffle topped with ice cream & blackcurrants, and allways served by who we considered the star of the hotel, our table waitress Marta, what an incredible worker! nothing was to much for her and always smiling, (remember the kippers & full english) lol. 4 free top brand drinks every evening was marvelous. Entertainment on monday, tuesday & wednesday i loved, all varied. The 2 inclusive bus trips were worth going on, the waltzing waters were so relaxing that i did unfortunatly nod off a couple of minutes lol. The only poor thing was the packed lunch for the return journey home at £4.95, 2 nearly stale slices of bread,a bag of crisps that tasted oily, a small apple, small carton of juice and 3 tiny jammy dodgers, far better fayre at motorway services for that price! overall well done to Shearings and Broadway Park.

Just had a 4 day weekendbreak with shearings holidays at the Boadway Park Hotel Sandown.
We booked this break after receiving an e-mail from shearings with reductions for various breaks for £79 pounds. As we hadn't been to the Isle of Wight for about 2o years we decided on this break.A good decision, we had a good informative driver named Ian, who kept us all informed
with all the area's we visited.On arriving at the hotel at about 6.15pm we were allocated our rooms,first impressions were good, the room was large and nicely decorated.We noticed that the toilet was not flushing, which we reported immediately, surely the cleaner should have noted this to housekeeping, anyway the matter was sorted out by the time we had had our evening meal.
The food is excellant,plenty of choice and always hot. We were the only bus trip at the hotel for the weekend, but this certainly did not put a damper on things, we had good entertainment on all three evenings we were there , and everyone enjoyed themselves.Included in this package was a gala evening with 4 drinks free for each person, plus a tour of the island trip,All the staff were efficient and smiling . Overall Im sure that shearings were greatly out of pocket, for what this break cost us.It certainly was fantastic value for the money, and l would recommend the Broadway Park Hotel,Sandown ,as one to visit.Thank you all for a great weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for a large room.

negatives first. the interchange at stretton was terrible, we were packed like sardines all elderly folk with no where to sit and very little room to stand unless you went outside in the cold. we waited over an hour outbound but 21/2hours on return, people were not happy about this.. now for the good part it is a long journey from lancs but well worth it, we loved the hotel and area the staff were all good, food good the trips out first class thanks to Danny,, and Colin our guide on the full day island tour. all in a very good holiday. But please Shearings sort out the interchange ??
