This evening, on our penultimate day in merry England, I am looking out the window of our B&B to a wood that is inhabited by deer, foxes and squirrels and I can hear a pheasant, and we have just had fish and chips and mushy peas for dinner at the local pub. Anything more English? We spent the whole day walking the foreshore and historic dockyards of Portsmouth. We explored the HMS Warrior and HMS Victory (Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson's ship), learning lots ...
... the shops were just closing, but the pubs weren't. We visited a couple - expensive drinks down here £4ish each - and set off to the van. We couldn't resist just one more at a lovely pub in Bighton on the way back. Can you get a ticket for being drunk in charge of a bike? Judy the prep'd a chilli she just happened to have brought! A great end to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wight Montrene Hotel Sandown
I have used Tripadvisor regularl to book short breaks and have always been impressed. On this occassion, my impressions were mixed (we did have a great time, though).
booked in to the montrene at the end of march for a four night break and from the moment i arrved i was impressed. the facilities at the hotel were great including indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna solarium and a steam room. we stayed there on a B&B basis and breakfast was cooked fresh and was plentiful(i opted for the gammon on a couple of mornings and it was excellent) we actually booked in to two single rooms but were given two double rooms at no extra cost. the owners and there staff were first class and i would not hesitate to recommend the wight montrene to anybody(families, singles, couples etc.) staying on the isle of wight.
Just returned from a New Year break at this hotel and i can honestly say it is one of the Best new years eve I have had for years.
The hotel is one of the best i have stayed ,it has a range of great facilities which cater for everybody , the food served in the hotel is that of very high quality .I would definitley recomend this hotel to any one
Booked the Montrene after reading the reviews on TripAdviser. All of the complimentry comments I read were justified.
Pleasure as well as business
Managed to get a booking at the "Wight" Montrene at the last minute for a series of urgent and important business appointments.
Found the Hotel to be an ideal base to visit my clients and the evneings were taken up very socially in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Food first class, room exceptional for a two star and an unexpected opportunity for a swim after work in the large pool and a Sauna on the last evening.
Great experience and will be top of my list for future visits either for business or the odd long leisure weekend.
Fab tme had by all the family
We, myself, wife and 2 children, stayed at the hotel in Aug 2006. Bit nervous about booking online but plain and simple, Contacted by the hotel by telephone, very friendly and so helpful.
Arrived on the Sunday, welcome was fab, made us feel right at home. Room was clean and well furnished with all the facilities you need.
The food at the hotel is incredible!! TO DIE FOR!! I cannot say anymore than that - just Fabulous!
Altogether a smashing hotel - for a two star this is exceptional. I have stayed in four star hotels that are not a patch on this one.
Thanks to all at the hotel for making a holiday a break to remember.
Very family friendly, with great food
Hotel was very good at catering for the needs of a young family. Early meals for children, the option for them to take an adult meal, small playground on site, toddler pool all go to make it a very family friendly hotel.
They obviously pay careful attention to their food - well-presented, tasty food, with large portions served by well-trained, polite and friendly staff.
Why give it 4 stars, then, not 5? The decor is a little dated, especially in the bedrooms. The food could have been marginally improved by using freshly ground coffee purchased from a micro-roaster rather than commercially sourced coffee.
But a great hotel - especially if you have kids!
After telephoning them at the last minute, they talked us into the hotel road by road, so we didnt get lost. No worrying that we were blocking the phone line!
The Montrene Hotel is a great holiday hotel. It has a really relaxed atmosphere and the Staff are so helpful and friendly. I would recommend it to anyone, especially people with younger children. Also there is plenty to do even if the weather is not as pleasant as we would all like it to be! There is easy access to anywhere out of Sandown as well. Overall a very relaxing, pleasant place to spend a week or two!
