just returned from IOW - our experiences show nothing but praise. Understand there is a new chef as we were delighted with the quality and choice of the food.Staff very welcoming and approachable.Room and views impressive, and if you like to relax in a warm swimming pool,it is an underused gem.just remember that the negative report was from nearlt a year ago.We live in Leeds and it is a long way to go, but return we will!

Room Tip: room with a sea view are to be recommended

Good location. Room was excellent except radiators not working in March 2011. Food was terrible - pre-prepared, plastic, tasteless, over-cooked, very small portions. On the second night we went to the pub in Totland (for an excellent meal) as couldn't face another evening meal at the hotel.

Excellent hotel, well run with very efficient, friendly, mainly Polish staff.
The food was excellent and the service was the most efficient that we have ever experienced -we have been eating out for over 45 years!!
The new swimming pool was superb and will be even better when the sauna is finished.
Ignore comments from Exminer1948 - judging by his grammar he should stick to all inclusive .
The package (B&B + evening meal + ferry) was good value for money.

Room Tip: Junior suites offer the best views and are very spacious with a large sitting area

We had a short stay at The Albion the hotel is in a great location and everything about the hotel is great but the food.I will start with breakfast I had porridge what I ordered but when it come it was lukewarm, then I had a full breakfast if you can call it that 1rasher of bacon that thin could have used it for tracing paper, 1 chipolata sausage, 1 pullet egg & small scoop of beans you could have fitted on a side plate. We had to ask for extra toast or we would have gone out hungrey.On one night I ordered the Hoki fish in batter it come out of a freezer and warmed up and you needed teeth like jigger picks to eat it on another night I had pan fried liver and you could sole your shoes with it it was that tough.Plus there never seemed to be enough of the luke warm veg.

We really enjoyed our trip,i can not see how people complain about the food,the service was very good and our waiter although Polish spoke very good english.We found it strange that there was no radio in our room and the tv was tiny.The pricing for a sea view £96 means that it is calculated per person ie £12 per night.The hotel was very clean,bedroom large with bath and shower, and bar for some small criticism we enjoyed our stay immensely.

Room Tip: 307 was a nice room shame about the light outside our room was on all night for what purpose i could...
