I stayed at the Wight with a party of 8 for 2 nights. The rooms are basic and in need of updating according to personal taste, but are very clean. The pictures on the website are a true representation, so I would advise anyone booking to look at photos first to see if it your cup of tea. I have...

Booked a small double and was upgraded to standard double upon arrival which was nice. - large room with a tv, plenty of space. - Double bed was comfy. Duvet looked very thick – I brought my own so can’t comment on what it slept like. - Shower didn’t have much power which appears to be an issue with a...

It is situated in a good location only a couple minutes walk from the beach, and from then only a short walk to dinosaur island and the zoo. The indoor pool & Jacuzzi are in general very clean. They don't serve lunch or...

The place is a little run down and the live music a little loud. However the rooms are clean and a nice size, they serve a generous breakfast and the staff are all really friendly. The swimming pool, steam room and jacuzzi make it worth a visit. A great place to stay for a few days to use as a...

Very civilised.Room was clean and had clean towels...

wightmontrene, Owner at The Wight, responded to this review

The Wight has an AA 4 Star "Guest Accommodation" accreditation but, to guard against potential guests thinking that we are a 4 Star "Hotel", we asked for our description to be downgraded to "Guest House". In our experience most prospective guests who are asthmatic or who have any degree of aversion towards dogs/pets make that clear to us at the...
