We stayed here during half term. I teach, so am limited to school holidays All of the positive comments written, we agree with . The coach driver certainly knew his 'whys and whereabouts' of the Isle of Wight. It obviously helps, because he lives there.

Very pleasant seaside hotel with good food, efficient courteous staff and great facilities. Some areas may need updating, but for value an comfort this would be hard to beat. Good evening entertainment (well three out of four was OK) Very good swimming pool and snooker room. Would recommend it

Basically a good old fashioned English hotel. The rooms and décor are a little dated, however the sea view from our room was stunning, the rooms are clean and tidy and all the staff during our stay were pleasant, friendly and informative. The pool is OK, also the indoor bowls area plus a proper snooker room make even wet days... More
