Stayed at the secondary building across the road (of you don't know this the hotel is split into two buildings facing each other). Apparently you can't wear a hat at the bar and you have to venture across a busy Road for breakfast. However, behind the secondary building there is two car parks, phone for code number and directions before...

We stayed at Yelf's last year for my sisters wedding so when we decided to have a short break, we knew the hotel was a good hotel to stay in. Located near the top of Union Street it is nicely located for the hovercraft/bus station and also the shops. Walking up and down the hill either gives you an appetite...

We managed to book new year's eve at Yelf's at the last minute for a really good rate. Friendly and helpful staff. Old fashioned hotel and might be a bit dated but that adds to the charm. Big rooms that you just don't get in modern hotels

I have stayed at Yelf's hotel many times and I must admit that it is one of my favourite hotels. From the moment that you set foot inside the door you sense that it is in an old established hostelry. I imagine that at one time it was the place to stay on the Island and the landed gentry would...

What is there not to like? My dad loves it so much he bought the chair. At busy periods service can be trying, but it remains the town's only authentic hostelry. The savoury snacks selection does make up for this. Food is generally excellent. A real local gem.

My first instincts was dated! But I began to realise with a building of this size and age it's going to have a few wardrobe hiccups. However with every minute I was there none of this mattered. The rooms were spacious with wonderful large windows making the character of the hotel disguise any slight imperfections. The staff were welcoming and...

“The front of the hotel looks out onto the main street, close to bars and nightclubs; therefore rooms at the rear of the hotel are quieter.”
