    Disappointing, over-priced &amp; poor attitude from owner&#47;manager”

    Poor check-in. Our keys had been given to other guests by mistake. The member of staff trying to handle this &amp; the bar at the same time tried her best but we had to wait quite some time while she got hold of the owner&#47;manager then located the spare key. Whoever she spoke to (on hands free) was incredibly rude about me because I was concerned that someone else had a key to our room. That was never resolved as she couldn’t get hold of the guests who had the key which meant we had to take all our valuables out with us as the room was not secure. Of the 3 rooms we had, the double was on the top floor. It was very small &amp; very hot&#47;stuffy even with the fan on. The bathroom wasn’t cleaned properly at all, in particular the shower. Twin room also had a poorly cleaned bathroom &amp; bedding with cat paw prints on it. Breakfast took ages to come &amp; was both over-cooked &amp; cold.

    Excellent value for money. Polite, friendly, attentive staff. Very nice breakfast.
    Restricted opening times. Our mistake but assumed it was a public house and was dropped off to then not be able to access the building. Didn&#39;t open till 3pm and was told closed at 9pm. Also no food available other than breakfast.

    Nice room but very noisy from main road traffic”

    The manageress Jo was lovely. The bed was comfortable and the electric fan was very welcome as we stayed when the overnight temperatures were very hot. The brilliant white supplied towels were lovely and soft. The full English breakfast was excellent, with all the extras - orange juice, marmalade, jams, etc. There was a garage next door with a convenience store that sold almost everything until 10pm
    The bar closed at 9 pm (garage next door sells cans). The en-suite toilet flush was broken and the button needed pumping to get a decent flow of water. Once that was achieved the macerator system worked well. Our room was on the road side and was VERY noisy. There was a loose drain cover in the road that did a loud CLICK CLACK when a vehicle drove over it (we notified the Council and Southern Water have agreed to replace the broken part).

    Meeting all the wonderful people who work at the Prince of Wales and made me feel so welcome. Belinda made me feel welcome maybe because I was all alone. Then there were the interesting guests at breakfast and the many friendly visitors to the bar.

    Good location for touring the island and exceptional location for Osborne House.”

    Great location directly opposite Osborne House and only five minutes from the ferry. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them and the breakfasts were excellent. Lovely outdoor area too especially given the beautiful weather when it was nice to sit outside with a drink in the evening.
    Slightly strange bar opening hours, but it didn&#39;t detract from our enjoyment.

    Very disappointing not good value.”

    Location good. Breakfast adequate . Near bus stop very convenient for all buses and Osborne House over the road. Room looked nice.
    The pub closed at nine. The garden was pretty but not always open. Room was nicely decorated but needed a good clean. The bar had noisy people turning the music up when they liked they appeared to be friends of the hotel. Breakfast service was poor, not offered more tea or coffee. The staff who served the breakfast were friendly but quickly disappeared once the food was on the table.
