Very friendly owners and staff.
Hotel near enough to town so you could leave the car and walk to one of the many restaurants. That way you could have a drink with dinner without worrying.

It was a nice clean hotel. We felt that the time given for breakfast could have been a bit later and had a bit more flexibily.

Brilliant value for money
For this price, the hotel is fantastic. Great service, lovely breakfast, very clean and free wifi. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will certainly stay again.

Good b&b in Sandown
I enjoyed my stay. The room was well maintained and looked like it had been refurbished in the last couple of years. All comfortable and clean. Very friendly owner/manager who helped me find a secure place to store my bicycle. Very close to the station - bit of a trek down to the seafront, but you can't be close to both in Sandown. I'd happily stay here again.

Dated guesthouse = not a 4 star stay.
The guesthouse was a bit dated, the value for money not so good (£80 per night for two people price (inc. breakfast)) given the quality of the guesthouse. The price justified a 4* guesthouse, but the guesthouse was not 4*. Also, it felt like we were transported back to the 80s/90s, not in a good way. The owners were very nice though.
