We stayed for 5 nights during Aug summer holidays.
From the outside the hotel looks like it needs a lick of paint, inside it was very dated, but very clean. The staff were really friendly and the restaurant/bar staff were great. Free wifi throughout the hotel, not the fastest, but enough to get emails and check websites.
The room itself was a nice size, very clean & could easily accommodate the 3 of us. The towels are for the duration of your stay and not changed daily, but there is a maid service to make beds, clear rubbish & clean.
Swimming pool is small & always busy, but there was enough room to have a paddle, i don't think you could spend a day in the pool. Towels for the pool are available from reception.
I was a little disappointed with breakfast, because it felt very small for the cost, but there was plenty of choice, fish, English, toast.
The only other thing to note is the amount of stairs in the hotel and to make it worse the only lift in the hotel broke down for 3 days so there were a few less than mobile people struggling to get back and forth to their rooms.
Also it you are travelling around the island worth looking at the tourist parking by the day on the Isle of Wight tourist website.More
