Nice stay at The Fountain
Nice hotel, staff were friendly and helpful. Stayed B&B, bedroom was fine, bathroom had peeling paint on the ceiling, tiles needed a good scrub and the shower curtain was a bit grubby, with these bits done I could've given a better cleanliness score. Good hot breakfast choices alongside the cereals and pastries. Food was great, when it arrived, the breakfast service was a little slow. No parking but can park for free overnight on the Esplanade, 5/10 minute walk away. All in all minor faults in my book so I would happily stay at The Fountain again.

Fabulous location for visiting the island, decent breakfast and on the face of it, nice looking rooms. However, on closer inspection of the bedroom and bathroom it could do with a really good clean and maintenence, like door handles, toilets, windows etc. Would only stay again if there are significant improvements in this area and I think that they know this. Interesting that the person who checked us out did not ask if we enjoyed our stay as they probably knew the answer!

Good staff but tired venue and a noisy location
Staff were helpful and polite, and breakfast was fine. However food generally was mediocre, soggy vegetables etc. The room was small but generally clean, although cluttered. Shower curtain was dirty and stained and the whole venue looks very tired and in desperate need of an overhaul - and covers on lights in bathroom, not the exposed bulbs! Noise from the Vectis Tavern next door was very loud and made sleeping difficult.
