We stayed on a Saturday night for a friend's wedding in Carisbrooke; my husband and I, and a few friends in two of the other rooms. We got a really warm welcome from Steve and despite arriving early our rooms were ready and we got shown straight up. The bedrooms were super clean and bright with everything we needed to... More

We stayed at the stag for a week in July. The hotel is a little out of Newport in a residential area with not that much going on around it. That said, The centre (restaurants/bars etc) is only a 10 min drive. The hotel owners are friendly and welcoming, the breakfast is of a good standard - the full English... More

Stayed here for our first little family holiday! It was a tad pricey but well worth it! The room was spacious for 2 adults and a child! The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and nothing seemed to much trouble! Breakfast was included and was lovely, cooked to just how you wanted! Already planning to stay here again!

Steve and Siân were amazing hosts. The pub was warm and welcoming (with a fine array of cards and board games) with clean and modern bedrooms. Sumptuous meals and a fine breakfast helped power the Kemp Town FC into the Semi Finals of the Isle of Wight invitational.

Had a very relaxing weekend here with our 3 kids. The rooms were very comfortable and the showers were fantastic. It was great that the children could chill out in the bedrooms whilst we had a drink or two downstairs. The soundproofing was amazing. We didn't have to worry about the kids disturbing customers with their noisy footsteps, and our... More

We booked to stay at the Stag as we were going to a wedding. Check in wasn't supposed to be until 3pm but the staff made sure that our room was cleaned first and let us in at midday to freshen up before the wedding.
