"The hotel is set in 70 acres between Bembridge and Seaview, with a woodland path leading to its own east-facing beach. There are 18 rooms in the main building, plus two tithe barns sleeping six each, and several self-catering cottages and houses.
 
The two restaurants: the Regency Island Room, with murals copied from nineteenth-century George Brannon prints and the informal Priory Oyster. Work up an appetite with a game of golf, tennis or croquet, or by swimming, beachcombing or sailing."
