“Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

I stayed one night at Medlars and had a very pleasant stay. The room was spacious with en suite shower and bath. The breakfast was fantastic and set me up for the day! Located just a short (10mins) walk from Yarmouth, it was nice and quiet without being inaccessible.

I stayed here for 2 nights as it is only about 10 min walk max to Yarmouth. Great room with well cooked English breakfast and charming lady who runs it. Would stay again!!

I stayed at Medlars B&B with my eight year old son and could not have had a more pleasant break. The owner was so helpful booking restaurants and taxis for us. The room was bright and airy and just like a B & B should be unpretentious but very compfortable and homely. The breakfast was delicious and my son loved the two friendly little dogs. This is definately a B& B and not a guest house which is what we loved about it.

Great B&B and a very friendly owner. There appear to be two rooms - one with its own en-suite and the other with sole use of the other bathroom. Maybe worth asking for the ensuite if it s available as that was the one we had and it was great. Massive room. The owner was very friendly and the breakfast was good. The main thing here is the location. Very close to the beach at Yarmouth and only a pleasant 15 minute from the centre of the town which has plenty to offer.

This B and B needs a good clean - it looks lovely on the website but beware - the room was embarrassingly dirty (had not been dusted in months, tea bag stains slopped on the wall etc) - we tried to find alternative accommodation but everywhere else was booked up due to the 'Old Gaffers' festival being on. The owner is friendly and the breakfast was good - but there is no excuse for charging £60 for a dirty room with no en suite (but a grubby bathroom down the corridor.)

This was by far and away the dirtiest room we have ever stayed in! Dust an inch thick on the skirting boards, grime covered doors, used hankies in the bedside drawer on one side and a bag of dirty socks in the other, tea bag stains slopped on the wall paper and other unidentifiable sticky marks adorning the walls.

This room cost us £60 a night and it didn't even have an ensuite. This would not have been so bad if the bathroom down the hall had not been equally as grubby. Strange brown marks down the back of the bathroom door, mouldy grouting, a rusty shampoo and soap holder in the shower, peeling paint, no curtain and a dirty toilet brush were just some of the delights awaiting us!!

One of the reasons we decided to stay here was because it recieved 3 stars as part of the Discover England Quality In Tourisim scheme and was featured room the Isle of Wight Tourist board Web Site. We therefore felt safe in booking this guest house in the belief that whilst it may not have the facilities of a higher rated B&B, cleanliness would come as standard in an establishment endorsed by both of these major organisations. How wrong we were!!

On the plus side the owner is friendly and pleasant, the location is a ten minute walk into Yarmouth, there is easy parking on site and the breakfast was good.

We really hope the owner just gives the place a good clean because it has a lot of unrealised potential. Not only that but it is unjust to take sixty pounds off people to stay in a dirty room that could so easily have been cleaned.
