Great locations and views, nice building and area, will bring family back. Contactless check in was hopeless, wrong and staff assumed we had been communicated (many guests) had not. even more confusing was explanation of how to enter after hours.

The venue was very busy with holiday tourists such as ourselves, but surprisingly very quiet also. The room was spacious and clean which made the relatively small TV look out of place. If thats the only thing, we were happy with our stay and would consider going back again.

We had the bay view apartments, the view was magnificent, positioning of the apartment was great, didn't have to use our car while we were at cowes. Walked to restraunts and shops. It was beautiful and peaceful. Loved it. We can't wait to go back
