The view of the bay from our room was wonderfully stress relieving! Some crowd noise drifted up from the hotel crowd below on a Saturday night. Sunday night was nice and peaceful!

The parking was limited, we could not access a park within the small area behind the main building or the allocated parking in front of our room, we had to park approximately 50 metres up a side street. Our overnight stay was appalling, we could hear every sound from the upstairs guests. We could hear them going to the toilet, having sex, everything. Not great when you are accompanying a 10 year old child. We will not return.

Toilet sliding door has no lock. Embarrassing when there are many users of the tiny bathroom. No toasters, No microwave oven -- why?

Worst place we have ever stayed room was dirty and rubbish under beds staff didn’t really seem to care. No privacy in the room faced car park with curtain that did not cover entire front so you could see in, kids back bedroom cold and drafty. Not a nice place if u r looking for sleep as it’s really loud car lights shine in ur room all night

We had a great view of Cowes front beach, the food was really good and the bed was the most comfortable ever. The only thing that let our room down was the outdated bathroom which had a wet floor when we arrived. I believe it was maybe from the shower curtain? Other than that one hiccup, it was a very comfortable stay for one night.
