Rayner’s Hotel

Rayner's Temperance, Family and Commercial hotel used to stand on Victoria Street almost opposite the junction with Albert Street. It was popular and  well appointed, ran a special bus to meet visitors at Ventnor Station, and also provided a tennis court  and pleasure gardens for guests a few minutes away in Dudley Road (where the car park is now). The first telephone in Ventnor was said to be an 'acoustic' one connecting Rayner's Hotel in Victoria Street with Mr F Baker's Postingmaster's premises in Mill Street (now Pier Street). Damaged by enemy bombs in 1944, the hotel was demolished later that year. The site became a garage and later a supermarket.
