If you want to fell like your Abroad, this is the Hotel for you
This Hotel was superb. The grounds made you feel like you was abroad, the Pool and Gardens were spotless, the Palms gave it a Tropical feel.
Our Room was lovely it overlooked the Pool and the Sea and you could quite easily feel as if you was in the Med.
In the day time it was lovely to relax around the clean pool area, and you could have reasonable priced lunches around the Pool and also enjoy a Beer or Two. The Staff was always Cleaning both inside and out, each evening and morning.
The evening Meals were of a very High standard and the Entertainment was Good and Hotel Bar was Clean and Great Service. The Hotel also owns the Kings Bar that was Next door and this again was a nice Clean Bar and on Sunny Days/Evening you could sit out on there Balcony and overlook Sandown Bay.
Along from the Hotel there was 4/5 Bar/Restaurants that had lovely decking outside where you can sit and overlook the Beach which made it feel as if you was Abroad each Day/Night. The food at these places looked really good also
NOW FOR TRAVEL
This is not to do with the Hotel BUT we travelled with Shearings from Kent. Our Pick-up time was 8.44am we had a nightmare journey to follow, We had to travel to the Interchange area which was London Gateway ( M25 Anti-Clockwise) and here we had to wait roughly 1hr 30mins for the Feeder Coaches, we then travelled from London Gateway to Portsmouth ( Back round the M25 Clockwise ), When we arrived at Portsmouth the Port was Busy, Once we got across we finally arrived at 7pm !!!!!!!
Return Journey started at 8.45am and we arrived back at 7pm !!!!!
Without any dealys the journey would still be 10hrs because of the Interchange area/feeder coaches
If your from the South East make your own way to this Brilliant Hotel, You could be there in less than 3hrs or if you wanted to travel with Shearings make own arrangements to get to Portsmouth and Join the Coach at Portsmouth so that you don't have the hassle of the Internchange ( London Gateway ) and Pick-up points because this adds atleast 4hrs to Journey time.
