We have eaten here on several occasions and im afraid the last time is likely to be the last time. Restaurant manager doesn't know too much about the menu or he really couldn't and grasp what we were asking. His jacket was also rather dirty. Two waitresses, one english very nice and friendly. The other really did not want to be there and it showed. The menu its self consists of little variation, half of which were sea foods. Very dissopointed! And don't ask if the chef could do a variation because he really cant. We were not the only people who were disssatisfied with their meal. We all left hungry as portion size is very small. I expected more from a 4star. Location and grounds are supurb but we still left hungry.

Selected this Spa from a Secret Escapes choice. What an excellent decision. On the lovely island of the Isle of Wight, this peaceful oasis with views across the lake and spacious grounds. The staff are helpful, polite and understandable. The restaurant is excellent with prices affordable. The spa pool is wonderful, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Really relaxing. The treatment rooms are as you would expect, peaceful, unrushed and relaxing. Wish we had booked for longer.

Cannot recommend this hotel and Secret Escapes for the delightful package, enough. Super.

Room Tip: Lakeside view, worth the upgrade although ours was all included in the package.

Just returned from three nights here with my sister and parents, who are in their nineties. Hotel was very suitable for people with disabilities. Friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms. Beds superb. Location was idyllic. Dined here each night and food was excellent and affordable. Hotel dealt with a minor dispute over our bill in a professional and fair way. We would love to return.

Thank you to all the staff for making my sons wedding so magical this weekend. From the planning with Heather to the superb food served for the wedding breakfast, everything was
excellent. The staff all worked hard to make everything run smoothly. Specail thanks to Khalid
who went the extra mile during the meal. Stephen the General Manager has a superb team and they all seem to enjoy what they do.

The location, staff, rooms, spa in fact everything could not have been better. If you want a wedding or just a break enjoying good food, excellent facilities and a great lakeside view, this is the place. Thank you all so much.

Have just returned from a 5 day stay at Lakeside. Loved every minute of it. We booked an excellent 'deal' through Secret Escapes and the hotel fitted our every requirement. Clean and modern and the rooms well equipped. The Spa a few doors down from our room which made it easy to pop down for a swim and sauna before breakfast. Dinner was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful and attentive to all our needs. Situated just outside Ryde this made an ideal location for sight seeing around the island. We would certainly revisit - we couldn't fault the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake.

It is a lovely setting by a lake with some amazing wildlife, a kestrel actually landed on the handrail by the decking and an egret waded in the edge of the lake. The first thing you can't fail to notice is how well trained the front of house staff are and although they were clearly busy they never once seemed as if they needed to rush away from you. We were not staying at the hotel we did go there three times in the week we stayed on the island, once for lunch which was absolutely divine, the smallest issue was paid full attention to. All our needs were anticipated, beautifully set table, comfortable chairs and fantastic service. Our second visit was to the spa which was lovely, we were greeted like VIP's and our final visit was to have coffee before getting the ferry back to the mainland. The maitre de remembered us by name, we said we were hungry and he quickly arranged for sandwiches,snacks and pastries with our coffee. I would love to go back there to stay. Very impressive.

Room Tip: sorry didn't stay over, can't help

This is a great place. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. Located next to a lake, the hotel offers a nice serene view. There's not a ton of things to do within walking distance but there is a Tesco and a chip shop and a few local mom and pop businesses.

The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Slow internet.
