Hotel from the start looked promising, good size bar, restuarant and lobby. Plenty of parking too. However was told upon check in there was no lift and all rooms were upstairs so had to carry pram, 18mth, plus luggage up the stairs. The room itself was quite small but we had bed and bunkbeds plus a cot in there. Room's decor was very dated with only 1 plug socket (behind the bed), 2 if you unplugged the TV. The cot was old and everytime our toddler moved it creaked. The bathroom was an ok size, we did have a bath tub as requested for our toddler. shower was weak and was either boiling hot or freezing cold. Very grateful for the air con unit in the room as upstairs was hot.
The staff, however were lovely and accomodating and breakfast was very tasty and the selection on offer was very good. Even the waitress at Breakfast gave me a huge bag of left over toast to feed the ducks with.
One major problem we had was we were booked in as Bed and Breakfast, had we known this meant we could not order dinner or go into the restuarant (even if we paid) we wouldnt have stayed there. We asked if we could order him dinner from the kids menu but we were told no. He had to have a pouch of cold food. We couldnt go out and find a pub/restarant as was too late for him.
Everyone says great location but we found Sandown quite boring, nothing there. Didnt like the quality of the beach either much prefered Ryde. Would stay there next time.
