“Family Run hotel”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

I stayed 1 night at the Marina Bay to attend a party along the Rd A nice welcome from the manager who carried my case up the stairs to my single room. The room was on the landing the view was of the back of the hotel shower room looked ok clean my shower worked well but friends said theirs was cold . Tea & coffee in the room though coffee was bitter. The bed was a single and a bit lumpy 2 very soft pillows , My door had a window above it so the light from the landing shone in all night so really needed an eye mask to get to sleep ! at about 5.30am woke to hear snoring from the next room , I did discover a light switch outside my door so maybe I could have turned the light off
There was no TV working because of the digital changeover they said.
Breakfast was 8.30 to 9am and you are summoned with a bell !when you all sit down together it was amazing how they served everyone in that 1/2 hour slot.coffee was the same as the room so had to have milk with it I only take black ) but the cooked breakfast was good and so was the service . The hotel is in good position for the beach and town.

We have just returned from a weekend away in the Isle of Wight and stayed at the Marina Bay Hotel in Sandown.
The hotel is in a great location, just across the road from the beach and within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants. The pier is just up the road too.
The hotel is a family run business and I must say how friendly and helpful they all were.
The rooms are very basic with a small bathroom (no toiletries, so remember to bring your own) and an adequate sized bedroom. The beds are absolutely huge, so you can really spread out.
Breakfast was great and nothing was too much trouble. You could eat as much as you like.
The hotel entertainment was quite funny but the drinks at the bar were the cheapest on the island, had a few too many on many an occasion.
Overall had a great time and would return again.

we recently returned from the marina bay we travelled as a bus load. the rooms were very clean and lovely and warm, the shower room looked lovely but thats where it ended the shower was freezing and it wasn't just ours everyone was saying about it.
the food was ok not much to write about full english was nice dinner was a little different a roast chicken came out as a steamed chicken and the ham salad was packet ham.
apart from our watriess who was really smiley the other staff really need to go on a peoples cause they hadnt got a clue.

Stayed here on a buget coach trip ...didn't expect the ritz for the price we paid
. Room was basic but clean. Hospitality and food were excellent value and the staff, particularly Manish , were great too. location is excellent too, right on the seafront .
Would definitely stay here again.

My friend and myself stayed at this hotel on a cheap winter break, the service was excellent, nothing too much trouble.The food was good, the hotel was clean and considering we were there when the temperatures were minus 7 the rooms were warm..Manish and his staff made our coach party very welcome. We would certainly recommend this hotel. Sue Cambridgeshire

Room Tip: choose a room on the top floor, we were woken up very early by people walking around. The floorboard...

As a cheap winter break Hotel (£99 for four nights) the hotel and faculties were excellent. We have stayed in other hotels on the island but this was the best. The rooms were comfortable. Choice of food at breakfast and evening. If anything else was required the staff would do their best to provide it. As the temperatures plummeted the staff provided halogen heaters to keep us warm. Entertainment on the Friday night was a Neil Sadaka type who interacted very well with the audience. No entertainment on Saturday night which was disappointing. But Michelle Powell sang her heart out for us on Sunday. Songs from Patsy Cline to Adele rock to pop. Sunday’s singer Trisha was more middle of the road. Her delivery and repertory rather dated and stale. But overall a brilliant time was had by all.

Room Tip: Aim for the top floor as heat travels up.
