About the Hotel

The Royal Esplanade Hotel Welcomes You

Located in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, we are fortunate to take prime position along the Esplanade at the foot of the Victorian, Ryde Pier, known to locals as the dry end of the pier. The mainland linked Hovercraft, foot passenger catamaran and local train all stop here. Within easy walking distance to beautifully sandy beaches, Ryde's pretty little harbour and the many boutique shops and eateries of Ryde town.

The Royal Esplanade hotel is a characterful Victorian Grade II Listed building that has been lovingly and sympathetically restored by its current owners. It offers a range of rooms to suit most budgets, from smaller Classic rooms through to larger Superior Sea View rooms, all rooms have ensuite facilities. We can provide just the package to suit your needs, from Bed and Breakfast through to Half Board and also Short Breaks with special return ferry rates for our guests.

Harry's Bar is welcoming with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, it has a well-stocked bar offering real ales, fine wines, beer, spirits and cocktails. Harry's Brasserie serves a tasty selection of delicious dishes with emphasis on using as much local produce as possible; popular vegetarian and vegan options are also available.


With on-site lockable locations for the cyclists among us, The Royal Esplanade Hotel is the place to book for a breath-taking break of exploration and adventure on the Isle of Wight.

With great links for transport, you are never far from your next adventure. Please speak with our team about suitable routes and access to storage too!

After a full day of discovery, once returning to the hotel, the bar, restaurant and sun terrace will be there to welcome you and yours for a cold drink and an evening of chilled recuperation.

A Bit Of History

The Esplanade Hotel was opened in 1868 by the Kemp family, who also ran the local baths. It was well known that the hotel had the cleanest guests on the island!

The Royal Esplanade Hotel was the only hotel on the Isle of Wight to cancel and fully refund The Beatles when they wished to stay. The Land Lady (at the time) was fearful for her staffs and guests wellbeing with such media and fan attention directed to the hotel. Our current Land Lady (being the Isle of Wight's biggest Beatles fan) wants Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to know they are always welcome to stay whenever they want!
