We live in Southampton and usually go to the Isle of Wight 3 or 4 times a year- it's completely different from the mainland and we cannot see the the sense of driving for hours when an hour on the ferry is far less trouble. From recollection during the past 5 years we have stayed in about a dozen various... More

Such a relief after our disappointment in Bournemouth - the Wight Montrene which is supposed to be only a 2 star hotel punches well above its weight. Rooms are not outstanding but they are comfortable and well above seaside resort standards - but where it really wins is in the standards of service (always with a smile) very good food... More

My wife and I had an enjoyable stay here at the Wight Montrene Hotel. Just minutes from Sandown shops and seafront. A very warm welcome when we arrived. Good clean accommodation. We were both surprised that the hotel is only 2 star as it has reasonable prices, good large restaurant with excellent breakfast and a host of other facilities that... More

Found this hotel last September, came again for Easter and have just returned from our 3rd visit (we have friends and family on the island). If anything it seems to just get better each time.

Just returned from the Wight Montrene in Sandown and the 2* rating is I think well deserved, this hotel is basic to say the least and situated down a little drive behind the Burlington Hotel. Bedding was very old fashioned and only blankets no quilts at all and the double room with 2 single beds are very small. The beds... More

wightmontrene, Owner at The Wight, responded to this review

I refer to the “review” of the hotel made by Carol H of Southampton who was accompanied by her mother and one of her mother’s friends, both of whom were elderly ladies and who were a pleasure to serve. Possibly the stay at the Wight did not get off to a good start. Firstly they were passed to us by... More

Very good value for a family break in Sandown. From outside the Montrene won't win a beauty contest but its pluses far outweigh any minuses. A friendly welcome at reception and a tour of the hotel. Our rooms were recently decorated and all the electrical items, plugs etc were modern. Very comfortable beds and well equipped bedroom and bathroom. The... More

Just back from yet another vist to the Isle Wight and obviously stayed at the Wight Monrene as we have always been more than satisfied. Have to say that its now even better - how this can be only a 2 star hotel is a complete mistory as it leaves most 3 star places standing. Very good service, great food... More
