“Second time”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

After booking this place last minute we Realised we had stayed some 6 years ago in the same room, which was as the owner said id compact! BUT did us just fine, clean and comfortalbe enough, breakfast was standard British BnB. The owners were very hospitable sorting out a doctors appointment for me and doing some laundry for us (at a charge).
Would stay again.

Me and my family stayed here for a few days in August and we found it to be a great place to stay. Rooms were lovely and clean and well presented. Hosts were friendly. Breakfast was great. Great location...easy access to the beach. Will be staying here again next year.

My husband and I have just returned from an amazing weekend at Carisbrooke House celebrating my birthday - the hotel was lovely - we had the superior king room which was perfect.

The hosts Mike and Terri were so friendly and went out of there way to make sure we had a really good weekend - they had even arranged to have a lovely bouquet of flowers to be in our room on arrival.

The breakfast supplied each morning was lovely and filling - a selection of cereals, fruit juices, toast and a lovely cooked breakfast really set us up for the day.

Sandown is a lovely little town with a great beach - we walked for miles each day and we were never bored.

I would not hesitate to stay at this lovely hotel again.

Jackie and Kev Toomey.

Room Tip: Superior King Room was lovely.

Not as good as expected, place is in need of update, re- decoration would be a good idea. It was very tired looking. Host was ok but for the money we paid not up to scratch. The location is ok, but sandown looks a bit run down to be honest. Next time we visit we will go and stay in shanklin which is truly beautiful

We have just spent 3 nights at Carisbrooke celebrating our anniversary. The hosts even upgraded our room as it was a 10 year celebration. We found the hotel pleasant and in a reasonable location; 5-6 minutes walk to the beach. We found the owners very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was good and for me was a good amount though I could see if you like really big breakfasts a per extra item charge might be irritating - it is a business though! The room we had was really good and clean though maybe a little noisy on a night as it overlooks the main road out of the town. The bathroom was also maybe a little small though the standard of decoration and finish was high. I would not hesitate in staying there again though I would need to pay to make sure to get the better room :)

We have just returned from a 5 night break at Carisbrooke House. We cannot recommend this lovely B&B highly enough. The owners made us feel very welcome and the whole place has a lovely 'homely' feel!
We have quite a large (boisterous!) puppy and she was made welcome as well - they even changed the gorgeous white sheets to something a bit more 'forgiving' after the first day - when they ended up with a loving muddy paw print on them... oops sorry! They said not to worry about muddy paws - which was lovely to hear and really helped us to relax and include our furry family member in our holiday! The room was spacious, had everything you need, and the bed was WAY too comfy - we didn't want to get out!!! Hee hee!!
The hotel could not be any more perfectly placed for dog-owners - it is directly opposite Ferncliffe Gardens which is an ideal place for late night/early morning 'business' trips.... although, be warned.... We nicknamed this park 'Log-opolis' - apparently Isle of Wight dog owners are not quite as good at picking up their dog's 'deposits' as I'm used to....! Watch your step.....! There are MANY MANY MAAAAANY beautiful places to take your pooch though - and we enjoyed cliff top walks, and plenty of ball games on the beach (We visited in February so no restrictions on the beach at this time - think there are restrictions May to Sep!). We met some lovely other dog owners who live on the Island and were more than happy to 'play' for a few minutes - and even share their 'treats'!!
We could not have asked for anything more for breakfast - if you want a delicious and piping hot traditional brekkie then you can't get any better! Plenty of cereal choices, fruit, yoghurt, fruit juice, very tasty full english and as much tea and toast as we needed! All fresh, hot and delivered in a polite and friendly manner!
The hotel is ideally placed for the town too and is only a few minutes walk away! Ideal location for exploring the rest of the Island too!
We will definitely be returning to The Carisbrooke House - and we definitely recommend it if you're visiting the Isle of Wight - especially if part of your family has fur and paws!
Thank you for making our stay to the Island comfy and enjoyable.

Room Tip: Room 9 is the doggy friendly room - so don't worry if you don't have a pooch - there are oth...
