8/10 Very good

Nice hotel in a good location
Beautiful hotel located close to the beach although there is a very steep hill down to the promenade so not ideal for anyone with mobility issues. Staff were very welcoming and efficient and I particularly liked that breakfast was made to order (also a good selection). Only negatives was shower pressure was not great and my breakfast wasn’t hot.

Good stay with a couple of issues
Service was great with all staff being friendly and professional. Issues with toilet constantly draining, no cold water coming from the tap and rooms being incredibly hot!

All good
I would call this an older, traditional hotel with a higher price. Great location. Amenities are fine. Rooms are older, but in good order and well cared for. Service from staff was great.

A Royal treat in Ventnor
This hotel is very traditional with a beautiful ballroom style dining room for breakfast. The breakfast was first class and the service impeccable. The bedroom was very comfortable although the decor was very conservative. The main colour in the corridors was mushroom and so quite dull.
