Reviewed 29 June 2009

When we arrived the hotel did seem abit dated with a very old feel about it but we were really impressed by the staff both on reception and during meal times. The rooms were again alittle old fashion but fine for the length of our stay 2 nights). The food was of good standard, quickly prepared and served by friendly waiting staff who were happy to accommodate 2 children who have limited taste in food. The entertainment was a male singer who sang songs we had never heard before but the company was good so we stayed in the bar til late, it is definately a case of what you make of it. We felt the hotel wasnt brilliant but better than some and well located, we could easily have stayed longer.

We booked this hotel for a weekend break with 6 friends. The hotel website is rather deceptive, and the reality is very different. We couldn't check in until 3 pm, something we were not made aware when booking. The room was quite dingy, the bathroom was small and not very clean, particularly the shower tray. For some reason the heating was on in the bathroom - being the middle of June I don't think this was necessary and the room was very stuffy as a result. The receptionist on departure was rather abrupt and patronising. The breakfast room was quite dirty, particularly the chairs, and the breakfast was appalling. There were several flies buzzing around us at the table, the full English breakfast was over cooked and wimming in fat. The toast was so well done, it was hard and tasteless.

The only good things about this hotel was its proximity to the sea front, however, this did not make for any of the shortcomings above.

The staff and manageress are absolutely lovely at The Parkbury and bent over backwards to look after us. The outdoor pool was a real bonus and so warm it was like swimming in a bath. The decor is a bit dated in places but our room for the money was good and the gardens at the front are lovely and a perfect place for readingthe papers. The beach is a ten min walk away. Highly recommended.

We had to go to the Island for a family event and needed to play things by ear and chop and change the number of nights and ferry crossing times. The manageress and staff bent over backwards to accomodate us and were always friendly and cheerful. Rooms were comfortable and clean and the shower was the best we have come across in a hotel in this bracket. Breakfast was served promptly and the food was good with decent portions.
Only drawback was that there was no WiFi - an internet connection would have been very helpful to us.

Staff very friendly, particularly hotel manageress. Rooms OK, though room above us had seriously creaking floor boards when walked on which was extremely distruptive and irritating. Kept me awake at night time. After telling manageress, she advised the floor boards will be replaced in that area. Shower too not great. All in all though, pleasant stay with decent breakfast and value for money.

Just returned from holiday there. I found the hotel very clean and the food good. The staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help. Everything we needed was on hand.
