We stayed at the Royal Beach Hotel for 3 nights . The car park was very small as many reviewers have stated but we managed to get parking there and left our car for the duration of our visit. Our 4 floor room had a wonderful sea view which overlooks the South Pier with the Isle of Weight in the...

Starting with the positives:- Could not fault the room and bathroom. Customer service while checking out was first class. Nice touch the drinking water on each floor, more hotels should think about this. However, even though we were on the third floor it still felt like and sounded like we were in the middle of the many function rooms on...

We attended a dance weekend last for three nights in March and had a fantastic time. It was organised by Isle of Wight Holidays. Ballroom was quite cold at first but if you are dancing it is ideal. Unfortunately I was unable to dance as I had a fractured arm but our whole party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed it. The...

Stayed one night on both legs of a cross-Channel journey. I'd stayed before so knew what to expect. Still had a key card issue on one of the nights. The showers are still not great and I had to remove the bathroom mirror lightbulb as it was flickering constantly (rm117). However everything else I really like and I would definitely...

Stayed for two days using it as a base for a visit to the Historic Dockyard. Had a sea view room on the third floor which gave good views of the South Parade Pier and activity on the Solent. The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed and good wifi access. We dined in the restaurant both evenings which...

My wife and I stayed here for one night before travelling to the Isle of Wight. The room we were allocated was small and overlooked the car park. When we mentioned it to the girls on reception we were immediately offered an upgraded room with a sea view. The staff were fantastic. We were made to feel like we were...

Stayed here for 2 nights, and we could not fault a thing. The room was spotlessly clean..... The whole building is clean.... The staff are the friendliest we have come across in any Hotel chain we have stayed in before and couldn't do enough for us. It has a lovely bar with bar food and view to the sea and...

we had a wonderful wedding with reception here and cannot recommend it highly enough. The Ark Royal room was beautiful, the food fantastic - both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. The bride felt really special and nothing was too much trouble for the team that ran the event and the staff generally in the hotel. It was also...

Very easy to find on the seafront with great views of the pier and promanade. Staff pleasant easy check and out. Bar quite small, but good seating area. There was a bigger celebration going on and they opened another room for evening meal, but it did seem a bit hapharard and it wasn't that warm and the atmosphere was a...
