“Dated hotel”
Reviewed 26 October 2009

We travelled in a coach group. The staff were friendly and helpful. But the evening entertainment was not great. The hotel is in need of refurbishment but was clean. The food was ok for the money. There is a small indoor pool and jacuzzi (this costs £1 for 10 minutes). No proper changing facilities are provided.
It was satisfactory for the amount we paid to stay there.

COMMENT:- As one of the pre war over 70 coach travellers about whom mmunch choose to make derogatory remarks I completely disagree with their assessment of this hotel. Social snob? Whilst we were there in addition to us there was another coach party of younger people and the rest of the hotel was filled by families and smaller groups and we all got on very well together. As for any obnoxious smells I suggest they look a little closer to home.
REVIEW:- This hotel ticked all the right boxes for a two star hotel. On arrival, due to a request made on booking I was given the choice of a room either with a bath or a shower.
I would describe the decor of this hotel as homely and the room I was allocated was both clean and comfortable and even though it overlooked the side of the lounge were the evening entertainment took place it was not excessively noisy. Entertainment always stopped at 11pm.
I could not fault the staff, they were a happy bunch, ready for a laugh and would help you in any way they could. Like another reviewer I was served by Darren who was a laugh a minute. The food provided by the kitchen was very good and there was usually a choice of about six items for each of the three main courses at evening meal, followed by cheese and biscuits and coffee (if you had room for it).
The hotel also has a quiet room, a small games room, a swimming pool and a jacuzzi.
Sandown is an ideal location for touring the island and for families with children the beach is only about 70 yards away.

On entering the Burlington hotel you are greeted with a stale air stuffiness and an underlying smell of urine. And instantly conjures up a feeling of an old peoples home or hospital. The hotel is very dated (as you may expect from the resort) with an avocado bathroom suite without a shower but with a non slip mat to help you get in and out of the bath. The room itself also smelt of stale urine although generally seemed reasonably clean. It is a hotel for coach trips of pensioners and not for families or anyone that was born post war.

The resort (and town especially) is somewhat run down, nice beach if the weathers nice if not hopefully you'll have a car!

We took a seven day break with Paul James Holidays at the Burlington at the end of May which we thuroughly enjoyed due to a great holiday company and a good hotel.
The staff were extremely efficient and friendly and nothing was to much trouble. The bedroom whilst not large was comfortable and clean. The dining room is quite large but the waiting staff are so well organized that you are never kept waiting for anything and we would give special thanks to our waitress Sue who was delightful and very friendly. The choice of food on the menu is very good and the meal is four courses and coffee.
There is a comfortable quite lounge to sit in or there is a bar were there is entertainment and dancing every night. All in all a good hotel for a short holiday.

We stayed at the hotel for a twixmas break for 3 ngts. We had a really lovely relaxing time. On arrival in reception lovely big xmas tree,with choclates, nuts and sugared almonds courtesy of the hotel.
The food was very good, with a good variety of choice. Rooms were cosy, not deluxe but certainly adequate for our stay, and exceptionally warm, as it was so cold the particular time we were there.
There was entertainment each night, along with bingo and a quiz etc.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel had a small pool and jacuzzi which we all enjoyed.
Overall we had a wonderful break.

We visited this hotel with our bowling club from hampshire. The food, service and rooms were all excellent and all of our members would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay there.
The location of the hotel was just off the sea front, so therefore quiet, but still only a stones throw away from the sea- front and the pier. Every evening there was something to do at the hotel, whether it was dancing or just enjoying a quiet drink at the bar.
We look forward to returning there as soon as possible.
Highly recommended.
