What our guests think

I love this hotel - it's my favourite place to stay when I visit Ryde. The staff are friendly, helpful, and always ready with a smile. The food is great, and my rooms have been comfortable. It's situation is perfect for the train, the bus station, the catamaran ferry and the hovercraft.

Truly soul warming dishes from years gone by lovingly reconstructed with modern twists to provide you a luxury home away from home meal experience. This experience must be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
