The breakfast was really hearty and the sausages were lovely. The only detractor for me personally was the beds whilst singles were a bit on...

Thanks for the review. Its always good to know that we've got most of it right. On the subject of the beds, all of our single beds are the standard 3ft type. We don't go for the smaller 2'6" here. I know that single beds can be a little awkward if you roll over in the night, and I guess...

Just spent 5 nights and couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. Very clean, good sized room and breakfast was fantastic. The owner, Laurie, was brilliant, really helpful, even helped me push my boat into driveway. Excellent value for money.

Coming by train, this is the first place you come across to stay in Sandown. Bus stops are a short walk away and the town centre is in easy walking distance (same goes for grub). I had a single room that was spacious and once I worked out English h&s regulations had a decent shower en suite. Good working wifi....
