Good Hotel Guide Review

In a busy harbour town on the Isle of Wight, this ‘very welcoming’ hotel is in a ‘great waterfront position’ between the castle and the old wooden pier. Come into the ‘charming old building’ (the multi-million-pound refurbishment retained ancient panelling, uneven floors and stone flags) and head to the rear: the wide terrace spills on to the parasol-dotted garden towards the shingle beach, the yachts on the Solent beyond. Some of the ‘lovely bedrooms’ are country cosy, while others are cool and contemporary, but all have ‘pretty touches’ – a seascape painting, a mirror framed in driftwood. Ask for a room with sea views, and wake to the sound of the waves washing on the shore. Sophisticated menus are served in the elegant restaurant; in the brasserie, the style is informal and unfussy – lobster macaroni cheese; rosemary and Isle of Wight garlic gnocchi, sautéed spring greens. Try to keep your eyes on the ‘tasty breakfast’ in the morning: the fruit smoothies, freshly baked pastries, home-made granola, whisky-glazed porridge and local cheeses are more than a match for the uninterrupted view of life waking up on the water.
