“We love Yelfs!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We call into Yelfs to have a bite to eat now and again and have never been disappointed. The food is very tasty (and plenty of it) the service is very good and the Bass bitter is particularly nice! The hotel could do with a bit of an update, but it has a real comfortable 'feel' to it.! Keep up the good work Yelfs team...we'll see you again soon!

I know Ryde fairly well and have stayed in a number of other establishments in the area, but up to now have avoided staying at Yelf's as I thought it would be noisy given its central location. I had to come at short notice alone on family business, and booked myself in via LateRooms, as I noticed that there was very little difference in price between Yelf's and a rather more run down local B & B on that particular night. I was pleasantly surprised - the room was very comfortable, with a large bathroom (something you don't always expect with a single room). It was at the back of the hotel looking out towards the sea and over the restaurant. I did not hear very much noise at all. I loved the uneven floors in the corridors - nice reminder of the age of this elegant building. I appreciated the breakfast - lots of choice, plenty of everything, good service. I didn't venture to use the car park, knowing the area well enough to wonder how much room there would be and having somewhere else where I could leave the car overnight. I would certainly consider staying here again.

We recently had our company Christmas party at Yelfs....it was a fantastic night which included a dj until midnight! From the layout of the party room to the food there were absolutely no complaints. The staff were all very professional and attentive and we are definitely returning next year....a BIG thanks to Pete and all the staff for a great night!

very reasonable price with a good breakfast but a little tired in places I guess that is reflected in the price. The place is well located in the middle of town with parking close by. The staff shut the bar whilst we were still drinking leaving us looking at a metal shutter?

Thank you for taking time to review your stay at Yelfs. We take all our reviews very seriously and would like to inform you that the bar staff have been informed of their lack of consideration and have been given extra training in customer service. It is our policy to close the shutters for security purposes, but the staff should have asked you if you would like to relocate to our sofa area to finish your drinks. Customer service is very important to us so pllease accept my sincere apologies and I hope I can welcome you back to Yelfs again in the future.
