The interior of the hotel is in some need of redecoration and the toilets are far inferior to the hotel itself. Had hot cups of tea in the lounge in comfy settees but sadly listened to two young men talk with the assistant manager about how they were only working on bank holiday as it was double time and something...

Stayed here for one night. £75 for a double room. The room was spacious it lead into a dressing area where there were Tea and Coffee making facilities. This then lead to the bathroom also very spacious. The decor is plain and simple but very clean. No views to see from my room as it had two Velux roof windows....

This was the first time of staying at the hotel. When booking I forgot to ask for a room near the ground floor and was dismayed to find endless stairs to our room. This was no problem, the staff changed our room straight away to one more suitable. This set the tone for our stay, the staff couldn't do enough...

We stary at Yelf's for 5 night's and it was really nice. It is a good location surrounded by everything and the Pier is only a walking distance away. The staff are extremely friendly and the hotel is really good. The breakfast is nice and the beds are good and generally the rooms are clean. I am a clean freak...

Had a lovely few days here over Easter. Staff genuinely friendly and helpful. Good self-service choice for breakfast including cooked options; only thing lacking was baked beans. Room a decent size with sea view and plenty of storage (but why do hotel rooms never have coat hooks so you always have to put coats over a chair?). Everything clean but...

Where do I start apart an excellent experience. From checking into the hotel right from stepping out the door from a 4 night stay. Me and my partner felt right at home right from the first evening.

Lovely hotel, close to esplanade and local shops. Rooms are really comfortable and modern and even have smoking rooms available. Reasonably priced and superb breakfast. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when on the island
