My wife and I stayed at this hotel in August. On arrival you are faced with a flight of steps at the front main door. Not easy to haul luggage up, but there is an easier entry via a ramp and through the lounge around the front of the hotel. Can't remember seeing a notice re this at the main entrance though!
The decor of the passageways/landings and bedrooms although somewhat dated in style is fresh, excellent condition and clean. The standard of cleanliness in bedroom/bathroom and through out the hotel is of a very high standard.
Linen - bed and hand all smart, clean and in excellent condition.
Tea/coffee facilities together with toilet essentials in rooms.
The dining room and lounge are very nice rooms, warm, welcoming and friendly appeal to them. In these public rooms handy WiFi is available free of charge. The breakfasts and evening meals are impressive, with quite a varied choice, well cooked and presented.
Location, on main road exiting west from Sandown which means there is a fair amount of traffic and thus noise early mornings and evenings if you have a South facing bedroom, as we did. But, on the positive side, you get the sun in room most of the day, view of Sandown Pier and sea. Although only app 250/300 yds from Sandown Pier, it is an uphill walk all the way back to the Hotel, steep initially then gentle climb.
For a 2* rated hotel it is excellent. We have stayed in worst hotels with higher ratings.
