The Bernay
Ranked #10 of 31 Sandown B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2012

We stayed at the Bernay Hotel and had an absolutely fantastic time. Geoff and Jeanette are extremely friendly people and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms were spotless and could not be faulted. They were well used to catering for large groups - we had 27 children and 4 adults - and prepared extremely appetising meals to meet the tastes of all concerned. Overall it was a superb experience and I would have no problems recommending this very well run hotel to friends and family. Thanks very much for everything Geoff, Jeanette and staff.

37 children and 4 adults spent a fanatstic week at the Bernay. The hotel is in an ideal location for the beach on a quiet road. Jeff and Jeanette were amazing hosts who could not do enough for us and the care of our children where of the upmost importance to them. The food was great with an excellent choice and the rooms were spotless.
We had a great 5 days and we hope to return in the future.

Geoff and Jeanette (the owners) are incredibly accommodating and the hotel they run is clean, comfortable and feels like home.

The food is great and the location is perfect for the beach, dinosaur isle, the zoo and shops.

I highly recommend this hotel for school parties and visits to the Isle of Wight.

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Bernay, rooms were very clean and well decorated, as well as the normal tea and coffee facilities we were given fresh milk on arrival and our host were very friendly, we stayed in rooms (2 couples) 9 and 10, these rooms have a separate access
so you can come and go as you please. Breakfast was exellent with a choice of just abouit everything you would wish for (including kippers).Well worth the stay and very close to the sea.

Room Tip: Rooms 9 and 10 have a seperate access so its not neccessary to go through the main house

We have just returned from a 3 night stay on the Isle of Wight. It was a perfect break and it was made most perfect by the help and friendliness of our hosts Geoff and Jeanette. The Bernay is ideally situated for Sandown beach, pier, high street and getting around the Island and it means if you eat locally no one has to drive or walk too far. The hotel is very clean and well loved, breakfast is a pleasant calm experience where you can be spoilt rotten and nothing it seems is too much trouble. The only down side was Geoffs 'singing' in the kitchen but a small price to pay! Just joking Geoff it was lovely! Geoff and Jeanette are very helpful and can suggest brilliant eateries and things to do. We have no hesitation in rcommending their fine establishment to anyone from children to seniors. Cannot think of anything that could be done better (apart from Geoffs singing!). Excellent value for mony which is what we all want these days. Thank you both.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to write them. Sorry about the singing could have been worse, it could have been Jeanette. I will continue with the singing lessons and hopefully there will be some improvement. Kind regards and sincere thanks and we hope to see you again. Geoff & Jeanette.

The Bernay is a great hotel and Geof and Jeanette are the perfect hosts. The rooms are spotless as is the rest of the hotel and food is second to none.Nothing is too much trouble for either of them and they really make you feel very welcome. We have been going to the Bernay about eight years now and still keep coming back for more. We thouroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the I.O.W
