Likes:
Absolutely spotless rooms, comfy beds. Whole hotel was kept very clean
Dislikes:
That to have an evening meal would have to make booking a long way in advance. Hotel is clean and pleasant but needs a serious make-over

Likes:
Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Have lived on the Island for over 18 years I have always liked to visit for events. Therefore, I knew I would booked once we had moved away from the Island.
Dislikes:
Our room was very basic and old fashioned. I feel even budget rooms need up grading. Our room was noisy and I would suggest the spring door closers to rectify this problem. However,we will return soon

Likes:
Lovely relaxed atmosphere and (genuinely) fiendly...Fantastic breakfast - best I've ever had anywhere in UK!!!
Dislikes:
Would have preferred duvet rather tan sheets/blankets, but thats a minor point.
Response from The Wight Montrene Hotel:
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind comments. Concerning your preference for a duvet we have so far resisted the change as the majority of British "up-market" hotels ie. London's Savoy, Grosvenor House, Hilton International etc. use sheets/blankets and our feeling has always been, obviously in our limited way, to ape the best! If requested however (preferably before arrival so that we can correctly set up the bedroom) we can supply a duvet.

"Absolutely fantastic"
We were here for a long weekend for a family party. We arrived by motorbike and parked up on arrival and the bike never moved until we left. The location was excellent and allowed for long walks on the beach. The pool, sauna and steam room were a welcome bonus and were a great start or end to the day. Read less

"Really friendly staff, excellant breakfast, Nice indoor pool but very small dated rooms"
Long weekend to the Isle of wight, Really friendly welcome when we arrived and the hotel reception and bar area all looked really nice and it was. It was all clean and bright. But the rooms are tiny, we had a twin room and there really was very little room to move around and the Bathroom was really small. Its a shame because it was all really clean and nice just very dated and small. The breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice and really friendly staff and very fast service. Read less
Likes:
The indoor pool was really nice and warm although the hot tub was freezing cold on our last day.The breakfast was great, bar was nice and friendly with nice entertainment. Staff were all really nice.
Dislikes:
The rooms were just too small and dated. Dont think you should really have to pay to use the hot tub. Also it would be nice if they could supply towels for swimming.
Response from The Wight Montrene Hotel:
Any hotel is a mixture of service, food, rooms, and amenities and will score differently from one client to another - the important point is OVERALL value and for a 2 Star Hotel we have an 80% merit mark by the AA - the highest in the UK! Sorry the hot tub was cold on the last day - the big storm with 99mph wind during the night blew out the boiler -but you did not even report the problem. The charge is only applicable for hard massage and swimming towels can be hired for just the laundry cost.

Likes:
Friendly staff
Dislikes:
An unlovely building, airport style carpets, artex walls, a tiny room with a shower room the size of a small wardrobe with a brown sink. All the surroundings were depressing. Piped music everywhere.
Response from The Wight Montrene Hotel:
A rather strange family with behaviour as oddball as their comments. The only point with which we agree is that the ensuite was small - but that point is made in the room description yet they booked the cheapest room available. Our side? The AA Inspector overnighted 2 days before - and increased our Merit to 80% - the highest of any 2 Star Hotel in the UK. TripAdvisor No 1 Hotel in Sandown for 6 years,Trivago's Top 2 Star in SE England and in Top 3% in World for satisfaction. So who is believed?

"Excellent value and very welcoming."
A friendly hotel. The 2* rating clearly refers to the rooms, which are basic but scrupulously clean - hence the excellent rating rather than good. (What more do you want if you're going to be out all day?) The staff deserve at least double the 2* rating for their welcome and friendliness! Read less
Likes:
Being made to feel as if we were important and our enjoyment mattered. We've stayed in higher rated hotels and not been made this welcome.
Dislikes:
It wasn't long enough - we'll hopefully be back!

"Misleading advertising"
Our stay was ok, relatively happy with hotel and location, ruined by the "en-suite" you cannot use toilet properly as both legs touch either a wall or the door, and the sink is not useable, as to bend down to wash,or clean teeth, you need to leave the door open? Read less
Likes:
The location, and the cleanliness of the hotel / room, the staff were friendly and helpful.
Dislikes:
The whole experience was ruined by the en-suite,they are small to the point of not being properly usable, you can't use toilet as legs touch wall and door, and the sink is also unusable.
Response from The Wight Montrene Hotel:
Our Double/Twin rooms are classified according to size/amenity and priced as follows - Standard (Base Price) Smaller (£10.00 less) Superior (£15.00 more) 4 Poster & Suites (£30.00 to £40.00 more). Whilst equally enjoying all other amenities, food and service clients have therefore a price range of £50.00 per night from which to choose. Mr.Butler elected for the very cheapest accommodation (which still flies past AA 2 Star Hotel Standards) but obviously expects no difference and also exaggerates.
