      Pleasant staff and very helpfull when they found that they did not have my reservation. The booking I made viaBookings.com had not been reeived by the hotel.I would have been completely stuch had they not found us rooms. We were lucky but would I trust onlie booking again?

      A little noisy as our room was over the High Street

      The breakfasts were very good and wholesome, the staff extremely polite and friendly as well as accommodating. The same applies to the bar staff and the lunches were good too. A very pleasant stay at a very warm and welcoming inn.

      There was not much we did not like as we expected a certain amount of noise, the rooms being above a pub but it was not that bad at all, the young people in that area are so much better behaved than in London where we live. The only thing I can think of really is that those places in the bathroom and the itself which are not immediately obvious could be cleaner, i.e. once in a while maybe a team could give the accommodation a deep clean as I think the normal cleaning team would not have the time to deal with that.

      Very helpful staff, great location

      A bit noisy at night due to main street being so close

      Location in the center of Cowes, very close to Redjet ferries. Good English breakfast. Nice view in the port.

      Our window was above the restaurant ventilation system (noisy and smelly). Room was very small. Expensive for the quality.

    • Couple
      3.2

      The rooms were outdated, musty and way way over priced. The breakfast was average and we had to wait an age to get served. I would have been aggreived to pay £60 a night let alone £100. Disgrace.

      The staff, I was staying for one night on business and at a time that was clearly busy for the hotel but the service was impeccable, friendly and thoughtful throughout. So much so that, along with the fact the location is so lovely (I knew nothing of it in advance) that I think I will will take my family there shortly for a long weekend in the near future.

      Bathroom decor rather dated and peeling, could do with a re-vamp on those, even if the rm costs went up to meet it.

      The breakfast and bar service.

      It is old and needs updated. The windows need replaced. No elevator so if you have bad knees like me it was not good I had to climb two flights of stairs with suit case.

      Comfortable and spacious room with excellent views of harbour. Very good breakfast with friendly waitress.

      Poor decorative order. Hard climb to 2nd and 3rd floor , no lift.

      We found the staff very friendly and very welcoming. They were all very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Very accommodating of our dog, who also had a friendly welcome. The food was good and excellent value for money. The breakfast was great and of a high standard, cooked to order and fresh ingredients evident....no plastic toast here!!..generous portions, infact it would give some well known hotels stiff competition!!!. The room we had was a little tired decoratively wise but very clean and the bed and bed linen were of a high standard. We will definately stay here again.

      A litle noisy from the street so not the place for a quiet stay, however it was all quiet by midnight...in fairness we fully expected this and chose the hotel for its close proximity to Shepherds Wharf and not for a quiet location. It was perfectly located for what we wanted.

      Great location. Very good breakfast.

      Very tired fabric, grouting in bathroom dirty. Very noisy outside at 2:30 am but not hotel's fault, just the usual high street drunkenness.
