“Great guesthouse for young families”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Have just returned from an overnight stay at the Beaufort guest house in Sandown with my husband and two small children (8 and 4). The room was great - bunk beds for the children and little touches that made them happy like cuddly toys on the beds and a box of toys underneath. Everything you'd want in the room - tea, coffee, free bottled water, really good quality biscuits etc. and the owner was more than happy to provide us with wine glasses as we couldn't partake of his bar downstairs. There was really everything you'd think of - hairdryer, tissues, even a reading light for the kids near the bunk beds.

Breakfast in the morning was a feast. You order your cooked breakfast the night before from a good choice including kids options and say what time you'll go down so that everything is all ready and there's no waiting around.

Owners were both friendly and made us feel at home even during a short stay, judging by the welcome book, they'd go way beyond the call of duty to ensure guests had a pleasant stay. The kids loved the air-hockey machine downstairs and would gladly have stayed for ever. Well positioned for the beach and near a local pub with indoor and outdoor children's play area.

A fantastic introduction to the Isle of Wight.

We were given a really warm welcome. The room was clean and bright. The towels were huge and fluffy! The breakfasts were freshly cooked and yummy. Convenient for the sea front and restaurants. Would certainly recommend to anyone.

Came to the Beaufort for a long weekend with my partner. The trip was made easy by the owners who even took care of the ferry crossing booking for us. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome and felt at home immediately. The guest house itself was in excellent decorative order, well equipped and ideally positioned to visit the islands attractions. Having enjoyed a drink at the bar with the friendly owners we had a great nights sleep and a delicious breakfast. I look forward to staying again!

We arrived very upset as we had stayed at an awful place on the Island which smelt like someone had died in it.
The Beaufort was like an oasis, amazingly kind people, and wonderfully clean and cozy. Lovely breakfasts and nice little touches like tissue boxes, biscuits and mineral water in the room. The Beaufort has all the facilities you could possibly want from a bed and breakfast. I would be happy to recommend it to other guests. They are absolute stars, I have never had a warmer welcome.

Just returned home after a short stay at this hotel.(3 nights.) From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and "at home". Nothing was too much trouble for the proprietors, they went out of their way to acommodate our every need.
The room was spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was superb, one of the best I have ever experienced at a b&b.
We will definitely be going back.

This newly re-furbished hotel (b&b really) is great. The owners are very welcoming and accomodating. My room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Really good value.

Thanks for your comments - we're glad you enjoyed your stay!
As was quite rightly pointed out in this review, We are a Guesthouse - not a hotel and we provide bed and breakfast. A few sites still show us as a hotel and we are changing them as we come across them...
