Friendly,welcoming and helpful. Comfortable and good location. Only (very) slight downside is the limited and early breakfast time but I would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to others.

We spent 3 nights at The Fernside in September, where we met up with 3 other family members. All five of us were impressed by the very helpful service and general ambience of the hotel. We needed the use of a fridge for medication and were given a mini-fridge to use in our room, which was perfect. Breakfast and "bar snacks" excellent.

The kids & I decided on impulse to travel to Isle of Wight for the remainder of their half-term and chose The Fernside after searching TripAdvisor. We all had an extremely pleasant stay and look forward to returning in the summer. Many thanks to Lawrie for all his help.

Room Tip: The family room (15?) is divided between a double bedroom and a single with a bunk-bed. The kids &am...

My friend and I stayed four nights at the Fernside last week (September 25th to 28th) and had a lovely stay. Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was excellent and our hosts very warm and helpful. We ate at the bar one evening as well. The "bar snacks" was a bit of a misnomer as it was a full meal and very tasty. The Fernside is well located for the train and bus and we got everywhere by bus. I would highly recommend the Fernside and the Isle of Wight.

My wife and I had a three night break here last week and we cannot speak highly enough about this excellent hotel.

The rooms are spotless clean and very comfortable tea and coffee and free bottled water in the room.

The breakfast is as good as you can get anywehere - a full (and I mean full!) quality English breakfast - I am glad we were there only three nights 7 breakfasts their would have piled the pounds on us :)

The hotel has a nice little friendly bar and it serves bar meals - we had one and were very impressed at the quality and value for money.

This is a very friendly hotel that we will certainly use again the next time we visit the Isle of Wight

B&Bs aren't cheap when compared with Travelodge and bargains you can sometimes get from Hotel chains. We stayed 2 nights at this well located B&B for £144 and we very impressed. The place was clean, not tatty in any way, good breakfast with a great modern TV and they tried so hard to please. They were really professional and helpful - down to even providing free bottled water. The Wifi even worked very well - this is rare in my experience! We would recommend them without reservation.

The Fernside was clean comfortable excellant breakfast [definately no 'value brand' as one comment made] and yummy breakfast. Liked also the bottles of water which were left. Its the little touches that make it. Excellant hosts the only gripe was tv was a bit small,but then we havn't gone on holiday to watch tv. Room adequate size very good value.
