We used the Montrene as we cycled the old railway route to Newport. This place is ideal for that, plenty of safe car parking and close to the start of the cycle route. Perhaps some would prefer a hotel on the front, but the beach is but a short walk away and here it is quieter.
The High Street is only moments away making it very convenient for shops and restaurants. We stayed on a B&B basis so I can't comment on the evening meals, but breakfast was good, all served to the table fresh and hot, none of the scrabble to a buffet that can happen elsewhere. The only slight downside for me is that breakfast doesn't start till 8.30 which means if you are working, or need an early start you may be disappointed, to be fair, we managed perfectly as we were on holiday but worth bearing in mind.
The room was clean, well presented and comfortable enough, and the booking arrangements were first class.
The next time we are in Sandown, we will definitely stay here again.More
