Picardie Hotel The Esplanade,
|AA 3 Stars|
|Looking for a small, modest but dedicated hotel by the sea, facing south, on the Isle of Wight?|
You'll find a warm and friendly welcome awaits at the Picardie Hotel located right on the Esplanade overlooking the beach.
There is a secret place of sand and sea and rocks where the sounds of the seashore can lull you to sleep at night. This is Ventnor Bay.
Awaken refreshed and ready to explore some of the quiet delights of this beautiful island, the Isle of Wight.
Only 100 miles (2½ hours journey) from London and the stress and strain of mainland life.
|We are situated on the Esplanade, Ventnor, just across the road from the beach and within ten minutes easy walk from the town centre. Nearby are some spectacular cliff top walks leading to the Botanical Gardens and the picturesque Steep Hill Cove.|
We offer a personal service so that you can relax in an informal, peaceful and homely atmosphere. We believe that good food is important and our home cooked food reflects this. Our varied breakfast menu will start you off for the day. Our Italian restaurant "Marino" provide a varied menu of authentic Italian food and is open every evening and Sunday lunch.
Each of our ten guest bedrooms are with bathroom, attractively decorated and comfortably furnished with tea/coffee making facilities, colour TV and heating. We have one family room that can accommodate two children and a cot can be provided for very young guests.
We have a main lounge where you can relax and watch television or the sun lounge, which provides views of the beach and English Channel. Alternatively, in the evening, enjoy a drink or a meal in our bar/restaurant which also overlooks the seafront.
The hotel, like most of Ventnor, was built before the day of the motor car and thus we have no private car park, however, there is a large car park just 2-3 mins walk away. We hope this has given you a taste to tempt you to join us in Ventnor and we look forward to meeting and helping you to enjoy your holiday on the Isle of Wight.

On the south coast, Ventnor traps most of the available sunshine, allowing its sub-tropical plants and shrubs to prosper.
The surrounding woods, cliffs and downs offer delightful walks and spectacular scenery.
The town offers a good selection of antique and curio shops, cafes, pubs and the promenade. The Picardie overlooks the beach and is the only licensed residential hotel on the Esplanade.
Local bus services assist visitors to explore some of the island's interesting visitor attractions - the world famous Botanic Gardens, museums, marine and wildlife parks, arts & crafts centres and historic castles.
Children love seaside holidays and the Picardie is perfect for them, right next to all that sand and rock pools. The sea temperature often averages 68° through the summer months so there's plenty of opportunities to swim.
The hotel can provide an inflatable boat plus boules and cricket for the beach plus chairs.
