Reviews of The Ocean Hotel

Sylvia April 1, 2007
A splendid large, traditional Victorian seafront hotel. This hotel looks very attractive from the esplanade, with its sub tropical gardens (a narrow strip of well maintained garden with deck chairs in front of the hotel). There is an outdoor swimming pool discretely located behind a fence in the garden, providing shelter from the sea breezes.
The public areas are grand and spacious, with a huge double staircase. A lift is provided. The hotel is double fronted, always located on your left when driving, due to the one way system. There is a small car park accessed from the esplanade. Arrive early to ensure a parking space; due to the large number of coach party guests fortunately not too many travel by car. Reception is one level above the lobby, lounge and dining room. The entrance from the High Street is opposite Sommerfields supermarket. I would advise a sea view or balcony room (unless you don’t want to look out of the window).
The comfortable entrance lobby leading out to the garden on the sea side doubles as a smoking room (as at October 2006) where guests can lounge in big sofas.
There is a snooker room; play room for little children; also a mothers room for preparation of baby foods, with microwave.
I think there was also a small, quiet lounge next to reception.
Hairdryers are available on request, but you have to phone reception each time you want to borrow one, then return it afterwards.
Evening entertainment is provided, perhaps a singer and keyboard player.
The dining room overlooks the garden and sea, with chandeliers (including a few cobwebs), table service for breakfast as well as dinner. We enjoyed the food, we stayed half board, and were given a good choice, including vegetarian. There were three courses plus coffee in the evening. There is a wide choice of reasonably priced house wines. Breakfast was traditional full English, everything served at the table to order (no buffet).
Our bedroom was rather faded and shabby, as was the en suite bathroom. The furniture was cramped, due to there being one more bed provided than required. Beds are made up with sheets & blankets. The overbath shower attachment was not very effective, poor water pressure and variable temperature. Our room was bright and sunny (hence the faded furnishings) the sea view was lovely, with huge double glazed windows. We were provided with desk and chair, reasonably comfortable bed, television, tea & coffee making facilities.
Staff are professional, polite and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed being waited on in the Ocean Hotel. It looks like the nicest and best located hotel in Sandown. Our booking was made direct with the hotel as a ferry inclusive package, it was good value for money.
