Booked in advance for what seemed to be a good Christmas dinner at a fairly high price.... unfortunately the meal was far below expected standards despite the good nature of the staff. Will not be repeating the experience, very disappointing and would have had better value at other Island establishments for much less money!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry you were disappointed with your meal at Yelf's on Christmas Day. It can be difficult to meet everyone's expectations on such an important day, especially when catering for such large numbers. Perhaps you would like to contact me directly in order to discuss your experience in more detail? Just call...

Centrally located, this isn't a hotel for light sleepers, but it's perfectly placed to catch all action :) Nikki behind reception found out it was our wedding anniversary and offered to upgrade us (which was lovely of her!!) although my irritating husband chose to stay in our room next to the car park so he could keep an eye on...

Yelf's Hotel is located on one of the main streets in Ryde, which runs between the High Street and the sea front. It is handy for many shops, bars and restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a good choice for breakfast (the breakfast room has a courtyard, which can be used in warmer weather) and the bar and...

Had 4 nights at the hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much for them. Full buffet breakfast every morning included in room rate. Be careful of the filtered coffee ... Tasted like airline coffee. Situated in the popular Union Street it is close to the high street and below is the beachfront. Parking can be a...

Attended My Rowing Club's annual dinner here a couple of weeks ago (Held here for quite a few years now) The venue as usual was great and all the staff - waiting and bar were really first class and are to be congratulated on doing a brilliant job. However part of the meal was quite a let down this time....

Fab hotel situated on the very popular Union Street, no more than a 5min walk to the beachfront / main bus & train station at Ryde Esplanade, or 10mins to Ryde Pier Head for ferry/train services. Many local amenities on offer - a local Sainsbury's a little down from the Hotel and across the street ; bus stops within 5...

Had a family Christening and stayed at the Yelfs. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Also we had a group meal and to say that it was good would be a slight understatement, with a group of 20 odd people you would expect that something would be forgotten cold or even served to the wrong person, but the service...

Travelled over to the Ryde IOW from Southsea via Hovertravel last Sunday to have Sunday Lunch at the Yelf's Hotel. We have done this trip dozens of times and always have lunch at the Yelf's. On this occasion we opted to have lunch in the Conservatory and not in the formal Dining Room. Great service as always. However, my Sunday...

“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.”
