Manageress Tessa was very nice and tried hard to please under what must be said, adverse uncontrolled circumstances. The breakfasts were good and the cook gave his best. On my first morning the resturaunt was completely taken over by rowdy out of control children. This place needs an extreeme makeover immediateley before the hotel inspectors get wind of it and stripe off those very fake four stars. Tessa please advertise tour hotel with an honest representation to stop unsuspicious people like me from being ripped off.

Room Tip: all rooms are equal, take some ear plugs.

We had planned a night's stay at this hotel during the long weekend with 2 more families. In all we had booked three family rooms in this hotel, but one week before the stay we were called by the owner to inform that the rooms were not available and that the internet booking site had misbehaved!!
Though we were given a full refund but our planned vacation got spoiled, not one but for three families.
Be careful about doing a booking at this hotel.

We made the booking in advance and soon received confirmation. When we arrived Tessa remembered that one of us was vegetarian. We were given a choice of rooms and shown all the things we needed to know about the place. We had a key and there were notices asking residents to respect other people. We said that we would be quiet coming in and were made to feel welcome to come and go as we pleased. Very close to Halt and our friends in Green Lane, ideal for us. Car parking could be limiting but it is a lovely clean hotel with superbly comfortable and clean beds and bathrooms. Amazing breakfast and excellent service. Thank you.

Parking, there is no where to park if you return after 6 at night. The room was shoddily furnished back in th 1970's. The bathroom wreaked so strongly of bleach, that it burnt my wife's throat. The disposable plastic cup in the bathroom, had been re-used , put thru the dishwasher, but still had toothpaste stains on it. The room was stinking hot with only a small window which opened onto a busy noisy main road, so sleeping was very difficult. The pictures in their brochure and booking.com website are inaccurate, eg no flowers on the verrander etc. It is not in Sandown or Shanklin, but in-between on a dull main road, with no cafes, pubs nearby. The breakfast was well cooked but very low quality food, it costs less than a pound to make I am told by the owner. This is a not a hotel but a low grade B and B, and definitely not 4 stars. The male owner was rude and had an aggressive attitude when we asked if we could leave a day early, we left anyway but still had to pay for the night. It is the worst place I have ever stayed in, anywhere in the world.
