We have just returned from an amazing 4 nights stay at Casati House.
I have used the word 'fabulous' in the title, as the décor and service both deserve a special superlative.
We both loved the ambience of the place and the welcome we received. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt really at home. We didn't miss the TV as their were better things to do. ;-)
Our room was comfortable and clean, the décor fantastic (the photos don't do it justice!) and the view across the Solent was incredible.
Ryde itself appears to be on the turning point. There are a few tired-looking shops and restaurants, but plenty of smarter establishments moving in to take over. The Coastal Railway leaves from Ryde Pier, only a short walk from Casati House, and you can connect to the Steam Railway. Quite a treat if you want a break from driving.
I am definitely going to be recommending Casati House to my friends.
If you are travelling to the Isle of Wight and looking for a very special experience, check out Casati House. If you're looking for nice Formica tables and gingham table cloths, go somewhere else.
I also strongly recommend using their restaurant; the food is simply amazing. Fancy a champagne breakfast? This is the place. Indulge yourself... you deserve it.
"Lovely hotel out of the way of central Shanklin."
Brilliant stay at this hotel. Quiet and away from the main drag and seafront of Shanklin but within 15 minutes walk from the Old Village.
The ground floor twin room I booked had ample room for two people and a modern shower room. The beds had a foam mattress which for myself and my travel partner was comfortable, but may not be to everybody's satisfaction so be aware of this.
Breakfast was very good with popular options of full English, poached/scrambled eggs on toast and kippers (which were delightful).
Welcoming and attentive staff. Could not fault them.
Very good value for £50/night!
We stayed just one night (Friday). We found the staff pleasant and helpful - happy for us to leave bags with them before check in time, and after check out so we didn't have to drag them around with us all day. Lovely cooked breakfast in the morning; we loved the Moroccan decor of the breakfast room. Service efficient and friendly. Very noisy in the bar at night time till 2am, but we took ear plugs with us (always take them) and had a great night's sleep. So not really a problem. Just remember to take ear plugs. Lovely, comfortable room (9).
We booked the Westfield for 4 nights last week and we had a very nice time. The B&B was very comfortable with a large TV, excellent coffee/tea making facilities, a fridge and bottled water everyday. The breakfasts were substantial and we could have had anything we wanted. Barry and Jody made us feel very welcome.
Excellent service in this very friendly hotel. Room was lovely and warm on what was a very cold day - so welcoming. Restaurant service very good and all staff very interested in us - a refreshing change. Food superb - simply cooked local produce - a fabulous experience. Excellent for a short break taking a dog as there are special rooms (not luxurious) that will take dogs too.
