Arrived yet again at the Wight Montrene, becoming a second home in the summertime now. Fantastic with the weather so good, everything takes on a new and interesting look. Even more improvements and changes for the better, tasteful redecorating with a forest of "green" LED lighting. Found quite a few "regulars" staying so lots of catching up to do on...

We stayed here for three nights to celebrate a special birthday of a family member. This is a two star hotel deserving of at least a star or more! The service was first class, the pool and amenities were also great and the breakfasts were outstanding. We eat out at lunch and evenings but I could I atone the standard...

THIS IS NOT A MANAGEMENT REVIEW OF THE REVIEW SELECTED BUT IT IS THE ONLY WAY THAT I CAN FIND TO REPORT A REVIEW THAT HAS DISAPPEARED FROM THE REVIEWS OF THE HOTEL. I own the Wight Montrene Hotel in Sandown, Isle of Wight, UK. Not for the first time a clients Review of the hotel has disappeared - this...

Received a warm welcome on arrival for the start of a week's break at the Montrene. Our ground floor room (133) was probably not the best positioned of rooms as it was adjacent to a small lounge which did on a couple of occasions produce some noise in the evenings from other guests. However once they had dispersed there was...

A really good hotel with a super team of staff who really put themselves out to make everyone's stay the best that it can be. There was just one thing wrong with the food - to much and so good that you could not say no! Booking was simple and they booked the ferry for less cost than we could...

Enjoyed an excellent stay. The staff are warm and welcoming, this was from the initial booking to the final day. The food was excellent with lots of choice and good sized portions. The rooms are well maintained with all the facilities needed. The hotel is a short walk to the high street and beach.

A very good hotel with a homely feel and excellent facilities. Very quiet when we were there in June so we were able to enjoy exclusive use of the swimming pool and jaccussi. All very clean and well maintained. We also enjoyed a few games of pool and table tennis. However we didn't try out the fitness centre which did...

A Fantastic Hotel. Excellent food, just put the diet on hold when staying here. The breakfast sets you up for the day and then a 5 course evening meal. Good value for money. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Our waitress remembered us from a year ago. Clean and comfortable rooms. Short walk to beach...

We live in Southampton and usually go to the Isle of Wight 3 or 4 times a year- it's completely different from the mainland and we cannot see the the sense of driving for hours when an hour on the ferry is far less trouble. From recollection during the past 5 years we have stayed in about a dozen various...
