This place has a really great atmosphere and historic "old inn" feel. My wife and I would have had a really great stay; however, they really screwed up with a crib for our infant. We had requested it in advance and confirmed after we checked in. I guess there is one crib between 2 hotels so they had to retrieve...

On behalf of the Quality Inn Waddling Dog, I am terribly sorry for the lack of guest service. We take our guests comments very seriously, so we can improve our services to guests, and improve on all levels, which would include cribs. Again, our apologies from everyone here at our Inn.

I was a little surprised by the place, but it's charm finally got to me. Coming from the Mill Bay ferry we went through beautiful countryside and arrived at the Inn. The mix of Tudor style architecture with modern amenities in the rooms was interesting and the place itself was clean and well appointed. Old pictures of the English Hunt...

We stay frequently at the mock-Tudor place. Always clean, staff helpful and polite. The interior is a bit dated, but that gives it the Pickwickian air, so do the prints of fox-hunting scenes and of Victorian times. The pub is close and serves decent and plenty of food, locals dominate the scene and strengthen authenticity. The location suits us well,...

Just looking for a cheap place to stay while visiting the Island for a wedding and got a flight & hotel deal on Expedia. Not sure if I would stay here again. Rooms are old but clean. The breakfast was good but the same every day. Really enjoyed the pub and the fish and chips were great.

This was one of those stays you wonder if it's just a bad day. Let's first talk about the exterior. You'd think you are somewhere in Austria or the Alsace in France. I had a 1st good impression. That impression continued in the lobby. I love that old Austrian look it had. Warm welcome, easy check in. Once in the...

We stayed at this place two separate times in a week. The first night was fine other than the cable tv was frozen. To be fair we didn't ask the desk to fix it. Breakfast was fine - nothing too special. The second time we stayed here was no where near as nice. When our keys didn't work we asked...

I wanted to stay at the Waddling Dog since reading the name. TA reviews were pretty good so we stayed for a couple of nights. The facility is older, but trying for charm. The breakfast room is in a room that looks like a library or drawing room. Actually breakfast was the only disappointment for the stay. Both days, there...

Character hotel, very welcoming staff, rooms were very large and clean. Dated style, but it was part of the charm. I will absolutely book in here again. Was awesome to have such a clean hotel that welcomes dogs. Most put you in some crappy smoky room, this hotel was wonderful with my two Italian Greyhounds.
