Who we are, Garden Isle Hotels, Isle of Wight
Situated on the magnificent Isle of Wight, each of our properties has been chosen with care to give you the rest you desire. This is our family Isle of Wight Story so far......... Ken Wells and his deceased spouse Lyn took over the Melville Hall Hotel in Sandown on the Isle of Wight in January 1986.
Now Ken is in retirement, the guesthouses are successfully run by his daugther Clare and his boy Steven. He began working in Melville Hall at a young age, as a helper in the classroom during the summer break, then as a waitress before finally becoming a hotelmanager. Now Steven works alongside Clare, who runs the group.
One of Ken's 10 grandkids also worked for several years at the Melville Hall welcome desk. Along with Clare and Steven, Ken is pleased that some of his former employees from 1986 - or something similar - are still working for him.

Every inhabitant is evaluated by an inter-disciplinary group and a nursing schedule is drawn up. There is a doctor's supervisor, nursing staff, welfare workers, physiotherapists, activity coordinators and dieticians. Customers are supervised for changes in conditions and the nursing schedules are changed on the basis of periodic, continuous evaluations. Inspiring and useful counselling and relaxation measures are provided every morning for both the inhabitants and the attendees of the event.
