The Hambrough The Isle of Wight

“An enchanting clifftop villa with spectacular seaviews, in charming Ventnor. Lovely light and modern bedrooms with pampering bathrooms. Nearly all bedrooms have views, some with balconies.The fine dining restaurant uses local produce and experimental cooking. A chic stay.”

“All change at this chic restaurant with rooms with views over Ventnor's esplanade and the sea. Sister to the excellent Pond Café in nearby Bonchurch, it's now in the hands of chef Robert Thompson and house manager Johan Brouckaert, the former a 25 year old rising star, formerly head chef at Cliveden, the latter with experience at the likes of the Capital and Gavroche. The restaurant makes waves with Thompson's superb cooking, while the thoughtfully equipped bedrooms and pampering bathrooms are made for lingering. Only the charm of Ventnor and its famous micro-climate will tempt you to leave the door.”

The Hambrough

"Perched high above Ventnor Bay, in one of the shabby-chic villa terraces that zigzag down to the Esplanade, it offers seven elegantly fitted bedrooms, a bar and formal dining room, all with views out across the Channel."
