We arrived when half of Cowes were in power shortage. Nothing to blame the hotel but the staff could’ve done more (emergency lighting, extra blankets will be handy as there wasn’t any lights, hot water and heater). We are a family with two young children and some how the staff has put us on top of a smoking guests, the whole night was hard to sleep as smoke cames in to the room with windows shut. Once the power was back up and you want to take a shower, you will notice that the light and exhaust fan are both turned on and it sucks air from a fixed opened window when it was 5c degree outside. Overall very disappointed stay.

for the money paid for 2 nights the place was noisy, bathroom antiquated and facilities ordinary. I could have stayed in a backpackers for a week for the money and probably been better than what I got.
