“Great hotel”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

We stayed as a family group to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary. The staff were welcoming and helpful from the moment we walked in. The rooms are much as you would expect. They are clean and well appointed. I found the bed really comfy but I guess it's what you're used to! The food is good with a 5 course dinner. The head waitress is an absolute asset. She went above and beyond by doing some balloon shopping for us for the anniversary dinner. The bar manager looked after us...he even held onto our unfinished wine for us to gave the next night. The pianist was a lovely touch! Thank you for playing a song for us. The jazz night was good too. The pool in a real bonus- don't go in the jacuzzi first though! We would definitely recommend this hotel

stayed here with my wife for 3 nights FANTASTIC from the moment we arrived the reception staff showed us all we needed to know including our dining table the games room, swimming pool etc. We took the optional evening 5 course dinner it was magnificent and the girls in the dining room were brilliant. Next morning breakfast WOW full monty or a jurassic only order the jurassic if you're really hungry. the hotel bar is really good and Alec the head barman is there to serve all your needs at very reasonable prices. All in all a fantastic hotel spotlessly clean will certainly visit again

Me and my partner recently stayed at this hotel and was extremely happy. The hotel is beautiful and the staff really friendly and helpful! We were really surprised that this hotel was rated a 2 star as it was much higher in our eyes! Also the fu Monty breakfast is fantastic! We had a lovely stay and would definitely go back!

I and my daughter had rooms which were spotlessly clean. The linen was good quality and the beds comfortable. Good to have the extra facilities of pool, sauna, snooker room etc. Close to the sea front but the road is quiet.
Staff were accommodating and friendly. Lots of choice for a good breakfast.
The hotel needs a makeover to update but is in very good order.
A single room with double bed has the smallest loo/shower room ever (you need to turn on the spot) but there was plenty of hot water - room itself was plenty big enough. Breakfast hours (from 8.15am) are a little limited if you need an earlier start.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bath

The hotel is very nice, rooms comfortable and close to sea front. The staff were really friendly and cheerful. Breakfast was perfect and the waitresses were great. We had a swim and jacuzzi was great!
Seafront area of Sandown was run down and all the buildings shabby (except our hotel) Zoo was OK but small.

Popped over to the I.O.W for a couple of days staying at the Wight Montrene in Sandown. Hotel is situated near to the seafront and close to the main shopping area. The hotel has a lot of good plus points,the staff are all very friendly and helpful,the rooms are clean and comfortable one thing not so good was the sink is in the living area rather than the bathroom a bit querky I feel. Having said that the rest of the Hotel has a nice size swimming pool,jacuzzie {a pound for 15 mins] sauna and other leisure facilities,i.e,pool table ,snooker room and comfortable lounge area. I would recommend this hotel on the breakfast alone, great value. You can also eat here in the evening if you want.There is a choice of eating places a short walk from the hotel ,the Caulk Head just down the road being a very good option. Would definitely book this hotel again....
