Bayshore Hotel
Ranked #8 of 29 Hotels in Sandown
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Stayed at the Bayshore on an Alfa holiday from 21 July to 27 July.From feeder coach collection to drop off on return the holiday was first-class.This was by far the best Leisureplex hotel we have stayed in ,we have done nine!!The hotel was spotless,food was beautifully cooked and the menu was great with an excellent range of chefs' specials.The entertainment was great, and was better than the usual mediocre mix! Jana was a very entertaining bingo caller!! The only slight blemish was that a hotel with 80 bedrooms only had ONE lift taking THREE people! Having said that,we rarely had to wait long.
Thanks to all concerned for a great holiday.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms highly recommended.

Spent first week of June at the Bayshore with my 87 year-old Mum. Although we asked for an easy access room, we were given a room where we had to master stairs and there was nothing to hold onto in the shower. After complaining we got a room opposite the lift with a seaview, at an extra charge, which was fine. The restaurant staff were very helpful and the menu was varied and had something to suit everyone's taste. Hotel right on sea front, but village high street up steep hill which could cause problems for some elederly. Travelled with Alfa coaches and organisation and local excursions were good.
- The Bayshore is an old hotel. My main complaint is that most people visiting the hotel are elderly and there is only one lift for 3 people which is totally inadequate

Stayed at The Bayshore 6th to 13th July 2013 with Alfa Travel and had a brilliant holiday from start to finish. This is the 5th year staying at this hotel and will definitely be booking for next year. Our driver Colin (Jim Hughes Coaches) was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble he is a credit to his company The Bayshore is situated right on the seafront facing the pier and would certainly recommend paying the extra for a sea view room. The Hotel and room was lovely and clean, and food was excellent with plenty of choice (thank you to Luke our waiter for his prompt and friendly service ). Another great holiday at this Hotel and looking forward to revisiting next year.

The hotel was fine as was the food. We were served at the table. This was good for us. We prefer it to a buffet. It did take longer to be served this way though. We were staying at the Bayshore with Alfa Tours because of water damage at the Gracellie hotel in nearby Shanklin. It was a good value holiday - we did take the optional excursions at £39 a head as well as the two and a half standard excursion package - this meant we were doing something every day - including a theatre night at Shanklin. The hotel staff work really hard and we felt well looked after.

Room Tip: The sea view from your bedroom is worth it - even if you have to pay extra.

My friend and I have just returned from a lovely week away with Alfa at the Bayshore Hotel. The rooms were good, the food excellent and the entertainment was fun. We shall never forget the lovely Latvian girl who called the bingo every night - hilarious to say the least. All the staff were very helpful and eager to please. The coach driver was lovely. He knew the island like the back of his hand and was full of interesting stories on each of our wonderful trips out. Thank you, Alfa, we shall be back! For those who expect too much on these holidays, you gets what you pays for, don't forget. These breaks are exceptionally cheap and good value for money.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs ask for one on the first floor. If you have trouble with pigeons and...
