Excellent friendly family hotel A friendly greeting, and a very well equipped room, with a modern bathroom and kitchen area also. In addition to the room there was parking. But the outstanding attraction to both the boys and myself was the choice and quality of the breakfast. We will definitely return, although I think I will need ...

The Hotel with a View.The staff give a warm welcome and genuinely seem interested in how you are experiencing the holiday. They seemed happy to help and have good knowledge of the area. They also interacted with the children rather than ignoring them, like we've experienced in other establishments. We found the facilities ...

Lovely trip to the seaside.I had a lovely time attending a wedding on the Isle of Wight.

The staff were friendly and got me into my room slightly earlier as I was due to attend the wedding at 3pm. The room ...

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight may be relatively small, but it ticks a surprising number of boxes for the discerning United Kingdom holidaymaker. With a wealth of spectacular beaches and unspoiled countryside, lovers of natural beauty are satisfied. The diverse selection of family attractions, from dinosaur trails to zoos, is great for families. But what makes the island a unique attraction for so many is its rich - and much celebrated - history. To complete the experience, the island is home to a number of historic hotels.

Traditional Inns on the Isle of Wight

In coastal southern England, there are few sights as enchanting as that of a traditional local pub or inn. The town of Yarmouth in the north of the island is home to a quintessentially English inn at The Bugle. Yarmouth's cobbled streets are lined with historic buildings, from quaint cottages to grand, double-front Georgian town houses. The Bugle Coaching Inn is right on the town's central square. In addition to a mouth-watering in-house menu, guests can also enjoy free WiFi access, and a beautifully kept garden.

Victorian Grandeur in Shanklin

Many of the United Kingdom's finest seaside resorts are Victorian, as are the best historic hotels on the Isle of Wight. The Belmont B&B occupies a stunning and well turned out Victorian home, which was actually built originally to serve as a gentleman's residence.

The building at The Belmont may be historic, but the facilities are as up-to-date as you can imagine. The garden collects ample sun in the summer months, and is centred around an attractive swimming pool, lined with loungers. There's a rejuvenating therapy cabin and a well-stocked bar.

Exploring the Island's Past

The history of the Isle of Wight is visible well beyond its many stunning hotels. Some of the island's most popular attractions detail the life of dinosaurs on the island, exhibiting the Isle of Wight's plentiful fossil collection. In fact, there are a lot of dinosaur fossils still to be found on the beaches.

Elsewhere on the island, visitors can peruse the spectacular Brading Roman Villa. Excavated some time ago, many of the building's original mosaics are on display. There's also an informative museum as part of the site.
