This is not a hotel. It is a loud Wetherspoon-type pub bang in the centre of town with rooms above, which doesn't do breakfast.
On arrival the noise from the pub was so great I asked to be transferred to a less noisy room. I as offered a triple with shared bathroom on the second floor, and decided silence was a fair trade for sharing a bathroom. It was quieter. The lady who handled the switch was pleasant, any negative inferences here are squarely directed at the owner, who clearly couldn't care less about his residents.
Then I saw the choice of two bathrooms! How anyone thought these were fit for travellers in the 21st century is bewildering! To top it off there was no hot water all of the evening and the same the following morning so I had a quick cold shower and fled as fast as my feet would carry me!
Yes, it is quite cheap, but trust me, it would be a false economy to even consider it! Ryde is not the nicest place on the island anyway. Couldn't find anywhere decent to eat and ended up driving a few miles to find a nice restaurant.
