“Fantastic four days !”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

We chose this hotel for our 30 years wedding anniversary trip, Every thing was first class, the cleanliness of the rooms and the whole hotel was superb. The meals were very nice and presented well by hard working waiting staff. A ideal centre to explore the whole island with great travel links. would recomend to friends and family in the future, Thanks again to all, Mr & Mrs G. Palmer

Just returned from another brilliant break at the Wight Montrene. In a great position with a wonderful ambience and fantastic food. We were a party of 6 and cannot speak highly enough of the food the cleanliness and the helpful staff. Our booking made direct with the hotel including ferry travel was dealt with efficiently and nothing was too much trouble (one of our party needed extra equipment).
Chris our waiter deserved a medal for putting up with us, He was always smiling, efficient and helpful. He joined in with our banter completing our mealtime experience. The family fun atmosphere carries on in the evening with Alex at the bar and evening entertainment suitable for all.
As if this wasn't enough add the snooker room the swimming pool etc and you have the best place to stay on the island. We are already sorting our return date for 2013.

Nearly booked a different hotel with inclusive ferry package before checking trip advisor ratings and switching to this one. Hides behind other properties so no showy frontage but actually much smarter than many others in resort and conveniently placed for access to beach and town. As others have reported it is well presented, everything functions properly and the food is plentiful, and of good quality without being too fancy. Dining room service staff were friendly, helpful and efficient (Chris in particular).

A smart well run hotel, with friendly and helpful staff, that gives GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY..

The restaurant, bar, entertainment and communal areas have all been recently decorated/upgraded (very smart) and the bedrooms, although ours was not overlarge, were, comfortable, well equiped and more than adequate.

The food was varied, plentiful, well cooked and presented and the evening entertainment, although we went 'out of season', was an unexpected treat which catered for all age groups.

The swimming pool, snooker table etc. were most welcome additions and the free carparking a boon. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any of our friends.

If we return to the Isle of Wight in the future then the WIGHT MONTRENE will be where we'll stay.

Several months ago my boyfriend and 4 others from his company stayed at the Wight Montrene for close on 3 weeks. He said that it was really good - and finally got round to taking me last weekend!



We stayed for 3 nights, Thursday to Sunday and though the weather was far from good we had a great time. Our bedroom, which was very clean, warm and comfortable, had a modern TV with a slot for our DVD’s and even had a safe. The staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble and they were always quick with a smile. In particular Tammie, our waitress, was an absolute treasure – and how she managed to keep a straight face when one rather large lady demanded that the kitchen cook her just peas (the vegetables that night were broccoli plus a mix of peas and sweet corn) I just do not know as I had a severe fit of the giggles which threatened to turn into out-right laughter (which from her attitude on this and other occasions) I don’t think would have gone down very well!) On the subject of food – good to excellent – breakfast was superb and how they manage to provide the dinners that they do for £14.00 I just cannot fathom – similar meals would be at least £30.00 in any restaurant – Saturday’s lamb shank alone would cost more than the £14.00 but then there’s the other 4 courses plus coffee! . .



To my surprise the entertainment was really quite good – after all it’s a small hotel on the Isle of Wight so you can;t expect London’s West End. Thursday night was Jazz Night and at one point there were 6 people playing – and the hotel even put free hot sausage rolls on the bar late in the evening. The next 2 nights there was a a good pianist during dinner (he seemed to be able to play anything that you asked for). Friday was clever – a guy asked you for your favourite records, singers, comedians, TV shows etc. then with a computer system turned the whole thing into a program with whatever was chosen being shown on a big screen – a great way to spend an evening and at times very funny. The last night was a singer who played guitar and used backing tapes – as good as you are likely to find almost anywhere



The pool complex was really good and the weather did not matter as the pool was very warm. The jacuzzi was nice to sit in (there was no real need to use the slot meter to make it go fast as it was always gently turning and at a nice temperature) and we loved the steam room for which no charge was made and which could be used all day. We had a private sauna one morning (£3.00 for 2 hours) and also used it one late afternoon during a free session (it’s free for 2 hours every afternoon).



All in all a really good place to be and we are going again the first weekend in November as we heard that a local nightclub is closing for redevelopment and is having a “last night” party on the 3rd. Rang the hotel to book a room and they even offered to go and buy us the tickets so that we definitely get in. Now that’s what I call helpful!!!

Our third stay - gluttons for punisment? No - very satisfied!

I think I'm hard to please but the Wight Montrene gives me no cause for complaint on any level. A warm welcome from the staff and very accomodating for groups, comfortable clean rooms, food plentiful and excellent quality, nothing too much trouble for our waitress, "entertainment" was entertaining especially "Nostalgia" which I could watch night after night, pool good, snooker room a mite small at the ends of the table but OK, and the room servicing left nothing to be desired.

Do you get value for money? I've had to pay much more for a lot less but I've never got as much for the same money anywhere else. Yes, it's good value!

We were part of a group on a weekend break and you have to join in to get the most out of such a holiday. That's easy to do at the Wight Montrene.

We'll be back again at Christmas.
