Calverts Hotel
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Newport
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Believe it or not, this place used to be one of the top places to go on the IOW many many years ago, i'm talking like 30 years or so now. Was decorated inside a couple of years ago, but whenever in walk past here, the bar is always dead, and i mean dead as in no one in there ! !

Could do with someone taking over with some money to really give it a face lift throughout and bring it back to what it once was. Many many better places to both stay and drink than this nowadays in Newport i'm afraid.

We stayed here recently, after seeing some awful reviews was very nervous. However we found it a nice little hotel - yes a little dated but if you are looking for somewhere to stay for one or two nights for cheap this hotel is absolutely fine. Staff were also very helpful and breakfast was good too! Don't listen to much to the bad reviews, I think some of those people were expecting too much for what they paid! The rooms were tidy and clean and beds are very comfy. Would recommend for a short stay!

Having worked all over the country during the last 3 years and staying in multiple hotels each week this has got to be the worst hotel i have stayed in. The paint was pealing from the walls, the towels should have been white but after years of washing had a brown tinge, the bedding was old and faded and the bathroom was a disgrace. (i stayed in room 19 )

Room Tip: Dont stay here

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and birthday. After reading the reviews was very worried.

The staff were fantastic. The food was delicious. The room was ok, the bed was lovely and there was hot water.

Loved that they organised the ferry bookings, which were included in the fee.

With regards to the parking, the hotel doesn't have any, there was loads of on street parking very close and 2 car parks less than 5 mins walk away. We paid for a 4 day visitor pass (under £18). This covered all carparks on the island that showed the 71000 code.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend with the note that it's a bit on the basic side but if you're only using as a base to explore the island you don't need luxury.

I will use again.

Booked before I read any reviews; but no real regrets.
3 nights for 2 people, FULL proper, freshly cooked 'English' PLUS return ferry from Southampton £198. That is less than £33 each for a hotel in the centre of Newport.
Staff helpful and friendly.
Dining room could do with central heating.
Room 9 OK, comfortable and warm; bathroom needs a bit of attention and don't bother about the view from the window.

It's sister hotel The Albert closed for a refurb so just maybe this will follow.
