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. For a traditional Isle bed and breakfast with a great friendly, family feel, then Yelf is the place for you. First class service...

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

We have stayed at Yelf's several times in the past and always enjoy our stay there. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Food is also excellent and plentiful. We look forward to returning to the hotel again very soon.

We visited twice as non residents to eat and drink, nice friendly atmosphere, we only sampled the bar menu but it was tasty and as expected and value for money. The drinks were actually cheaper than further down on the esplanade in a grotty pub so that's a bonus! Seemed popular with holiday makers and locals alike do that usually...

Stayed at the secondary building across the road (of you don't know this the hotel is split into two buildings facing each other). Apparently you can't wear a hat at the bar and you have to venture across a busy Road for breakfast. However, behind the secondary building there is two car parks, phone for code number and directions before...

“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.”
