One of the few hotels that would accept a booking for one night only during a Bank Holiday weekend. Manager and staff were really, really helpful. They booked a ferry as well as the room and sorted everything out perfectly. They even got me a better deal on the ferry than I could get myself. The room was very nice...

I was struck by the helpful and friendly member of staff when I made my booking on the telephone, and when I arrived I was given a bigger room than the single I booked. The bar meal in the evening was good value and tasty, again with excellent service. My room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast ingredients were of good...

Our room was in the annex across the road and very large but smelt strongly of tobacco smoke. On leaving after 4 nights this was mentioned and they said they had intended to move us after the first night when no other was available. Cleaning very hit and miss. Bedroom OK but bathroom not fully serviced or cleaned despite mentioning...

An excellent venue for events, Yelf's has been working with Historic Ryde Society for the past three years. The team is very helpful and efficient, and yesterday's cream tea and Babycham event, with author and raconteur Philip Norman was a huge success! Everyone said how much they'd enjoyed it, and a cream and jam covered scone even featured on Twitter...

Stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions and found the staff to to very pleasant and helpful. The rooms we have stayed in vary in decor but are always clean and pleasant enough at this price. Common rooms including the conservatory are very comfortable with a reasonably priced bar and light snacks. The evening meals were excellent.3 course...

The interior of the hotel is in some need of redecoration and the toilets are far inferior to the hotel itself. Had hot cups of tea in the lounge in comfy settees but sadly listened to two young men talk with the assistant manager about how they were only working on bank holiday as it was double time and something...

Stayed here for one night. £75 for a double room. The room was spacious it lead into a dressing area where there were Tea and Coffee making facilities. This then lead to the bathroom also very spacious. The decor is plain and simple but very clean. No views to see from my room as it had two Velux roof windows....

This was the first time of staying at the hotel. When booking I forgot to ask for a room near the ground floor and was dismayed to find endless stairs to our room. This was no problem, the staff changed our room straight away to one more suitable. This set the tone for our stay, the staff couldn't do enough...

“The front of the hotel looks out onto the main street, close to bars and nightclubs; therefore rooms at the rear of the hotel are quieter.”
