Positive Reviews

Variety of activities

Many guests appreciate the convenience of the games/snooker room, heated pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and fitness room. Others love the fact that they can walk to the beach, Old Village, the Isle of Wight Zoo and the Sandown Train Station.


Most guests report that the hotel is spotlessly clean in both guest rooms and public areas, noting that housekeeping cleans and changes towels daily. Others note that the Jacuzzi and pool areas are also well maintained.

Expansive breakfast menu

The Wight offers the largest breakfast menu on the island, complete with fresh, locally grown produce. Most guests find a variety of food choices to their liking and special dietary needs are accommodated on request. Many guests find lunch and dinner to be equally delicious and well-presented.

Negative Reviews

Outdated rooms

Some guests feel that the rooms are outdated, despite the fact that the hotel has new carpet in guest rooms and the common areas. While all rooms have been fitted with blackout curtains, many note that the heating system is loud and that the bathrooms are in need of upgrades.

Small rooms

A number of guests say that the rooms are smaller than expected, particularly the bathrooms, and recommend comparing dimensions of economy rooms and suites when booking.

Limited check-in times

Check-in is from 2 PM until midnight and some guests feel that the hotel staff is less accommodating when after-hours check-in is required. Many guests recommend making any special requests in advance, including pet-friendly rooms, cribs, and arranging for after-hours check-in.
