- Newport, Isle of Wight -

Welcome to Calverts – a historic Newport hotel.

Family run since 2002, we are an easy going and budget friendly hotel with 30 bedrooms conveniently located in the centre of Newport on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of EnglandA great base for all occasions, being nestled just off the high street and perfect any time of the year whether you’re on business, travelling, visiting family and friends or for a short holiday – we’ve got you covered with everything you need.

Newport is the island’s county town so whether you’re travelling to the island for work or for pleasure we are in easy walking distance of popular shops eateries and nightlife; industrial estates, the courts, county hall, St Mary’s Hospital and HMP Isle of Wight. The Isle of Wight Festival is held at Seaclose Park each June and we are one of the closest venues.

Now, time for a bit of history…

Built in 1732, this grade II listed building was previously home to the Mayor of Newport and then to a succession of surgeons. Over the centuries it has played a big role in Isle of Wight politics.

In the 1800s it became Warburton’s Hotel and Her Majesty Queen Victoria, who spent most of her time at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, soon issued the hotel a Royal Warrant – the plaque is still above our front door so keep your eyes peeled!

In the 1970s/1980s the hotel and bar was renamed Calvert’s after the family that owned it at the time. Up until the millennium Calverts was well-known and a very popular place to go.

Back to today and the name just stuck (albeit we no longer use the apostrophe)…

Our family have been here since March 2002; we now focus much more on guest accommodation, and a far more quiet and civilized bar, with 30 en-suite bedrooms all decorated and furnished to a high standard with comfy beds, crisp linen, free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and tea and coffee. Fast free unlimited Wi-Fi is provided throughout the hotel – bedrooms included.

Calvert’s Bar is open daily to both guests and the public and is well-stocked with your favourites with a range of hot and cold drinks, wines, spirits, snacks and barista style coffees. If you’re a fan of sports, the bar has a 50″ smart TV and a pool table.

A light breakfast consisting of tea and coffee, orange juice, milk, cereals, toast and preserves is available all day, everyday for a great low price, or we can suggest local cafés and eateries if you’d prefer something cooked.

Our friendly front of house team are on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help with any queries you may have including pointing you in the direction of nearby amenities, attractions, entertainment venues, eateries; with helpful travel and parking details under their belts, and for walk-in bookings any time of the day or night.

Being an independent family run hotel booking direct would really help us out – thank you, and we hope to see you soon 🙂
