The hotel itself is quite dated, but the staff make up for this as they can't do enough for you. Everyone is really friendly and you're made to feel really welcome. The food was wonderful! Sooo much food! The lounge and bar have great views of the sea too with easy access to the beach.

My recent stay did not disappoint at all. Very well positioned right on the promenade near to the lift. Manager and staff very friendly and professional, nothing too much trouble. Rooms are very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean by the housekeeping team. I enjoyed the food very much, plenty of choice, quick service and good quality. Would highly recommend this...

Have just returned from a long week end at the Ocean View hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Our room was overlooking the sea and was beautiful.

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. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the hotel, and enjoyed great views from our room....
