          Stayed for 3 nights for the IOW festival - had a great time. Clean comfortable rooms - great breakfast and Alan (or is it Steve) and his team made us feel very welcome and enjoyed a good laugh with us - see you 2018

          Waited 45 minutes for a cold roast beef and fish & chips (fish and chips was so small my other half had to buy some chips on the way home). Very disappointed and not great value for money. Will not be visiting again.
