We've returned to Rystone Manor as it really is so relaxing and peaceful. A small hotel with a warm welcome and fabulous food. The rooms are beautiful. It's an old Victorian building which adds to the charm. We love it as each room is decorated differently to such high standards. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts Carole and...

Best time ever, great food ( best ever ) great atmosphere and excellent owners. The rooms were the best quality I have stayed in. The hotel is set in stunning grounds and is a perfect location. We will be going back this year.

The owner was a nice guy and very welcoming and I'm sure most of the rooms in the hotel were great. Unfortunately for us I think we had the broom cupboard as ours was tiny. The shower room could win the smallest ensuite in the world medal and I've seen better water pressure from a dripping tap! The bed was...

Dear NamFah, This is an awkward review to answer but we are really disappointed that you did not enjoy your overnighter at Rylstone. The room you booked was a standard double room so it is not one of the bigger rooms we have at Rylstone but certainly not a "broom cupboard". This is a good reason for booking direct and...

Beautiful grounds, beautiful hotel with lovely decor, owners very friendly. Only couple of downsides we went beginning of season and as we were the only couple there hotel wasn't fully up and running i.e. Bar not open unless you ring door bell to request a drink which you felt a little awkward doing (probably our own problem) evening meals were...

I loved my visit to this hotel - it was quite unique and unlike anywhere else I have stayed. The owners really made a huge effort to make you feel at home and the food was quite sublime. After dinner the owners would join you for further drinks and coffees. The rooms were quirky and distinctive and the location was...

The small hotel is situated next to the Rhylsone Gardens, Shanklin; it was built by Queen Victoria for her personal doctor and it has all the charm of that era. The room we had overlooked the rear gardens and was very quiet and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful and the evening meals most enjoyable. A small hotel with...

We went to Rylstone Manor to celebrate my wife's birthday, and stayed 2 nights in October. The approach to the hotel was a little surprising as we had to enter through the same entry as to the crazy golf! Having got there we found a delightful small hotel in the grounds of some public gardens. The public areas are full...

The good things were the beautiful location, lovely old building and very nice staff. The disappointments included: a v small double bed with an ancient mattress and mushy pillows, leading to backache. The breakfast menu which included 'freshly baked croissants' as a cooked item... I.e. heated up, Surely, these are usually available alongside cereal/ fruit etc.

My first response was deleted because I identified you so here it is amended. Thank you for taking the time to write a review even though it would have been nicer to have been able to explain any problems you may have had with our service face to face. The room is one which you booked direct with us. We...

We have stayed in a few Country House hotels over the years, and this isn't one! It is really a B&B with a bar that you have to ask to open, and a restaurant that only serves evening meals if at least 4 guests ask for it in the morning. On the positive side the hotel is set in lovely...

Dear Mr Cooke, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on TA. Some off the issues you have had would have been solved by booking direct with us. I have cooked for just two people only this week and will do so when anyone requests dinner at the hotel. We say to people that they can book...
