“Disappointing”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We were given the family room which unfortunately was on the main road. Every time a large vehicle or bus went past you could feel the vibration! No hot water for a shower in the morning. Apologies were received but nothing was done. Staff were friendly and breakfast was average. By comparison with other B & Bs we had stayed at on the Island we didn't think it was value for money.

Room Tip: Family room is noisy but others may be quieter.

Arrived on the island on a spur of the moment day trip, enjoying the sunshine so found the Kasbah with a room available. Room was very good, didn't notice the noise being a problem. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very good and if you did not want the full english you could ask for what you liked with no problem at all. Very well cooked. Would definately stay here again.

I wish I had stayed at the Kasbah for a holiday and been able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. I was impressed by the decor, it was warm and friendly if not quite North African! The room I stayed in NO.& was clean, perfect for a base. The Full English in the morning, while not the best I have had was good, well cooked and certainly did the job.

In the evening I enjoyed the family fortunes style quiz though only attended by locals which was a shame and while pub gate was intriguing it could have been a little off putting for some.

It is run by and (you get the feeling for) a younger audience (I am 39 and felt old!) I would most definable stay with my wife but would probably not recommend it for a family, however, I was there for an interview on the Island, so it is up to individual presence.

Over all I enjoyed the Kasbah, the room was great, the bar friendly enough and cheap, a gem for the Isle one which I hope to visit again.
Many Thanks to all.

Room Tip: Do note the B&B message of noise at weekends, though I stayed midweek you can still hear the bar...

We arrived on Friday evening to a warm welcome. We were shown to our room on the second floor and were pleasantly surprised by the space and sea view. Being on the second floor we did not experience noise and had a great evening in the bar itself. Breakfast was really good and overall we felt Kasbah was great value for money in a great location in Ryde. The only very slight downsides were no soap etc. in the bathroom and very thin pillows and duvets. However, everything was very clean.

Room Tip: Choose a second floor room

Nice place, great price, friendly staff. Will definitely return, and would recommend to friends! Breakfasts were a little sow, but the location more than compensates for this! You can't get much closer to the Solent without being in it! Car parking is a bit of an issue there, the local council places won't let you pay for the morning on the evening before, so you have to get up before 8am to put a parking ticket on your car!

This hotel is based on a Moroccan theme. The idea is really quite nice, and the execution is not bad either. Staff seemed welcoming and happy to help. All in all, money well spent. The only gripe is that windows in our room (the "Family Room") looked directly out onto the High st. - which meant we could hear every detail of Saturday night revelry, including the arrival of the police at 2 a.m.

The staff is friendly, the rooms are good, the location is perfect ( close to the beach and bus stop) and the breakfast was excellent. My husband and I were not disturbed by the noises so I would definitely recommend the place.
