We just loved this hotel. We were in room 240, right in the roof, with a balcony that came out of the roof, over looking the Solent. Looking back we could see the chimneys. It felt like being in a Mary Poppins film Chim chiminey, Chim chiminey ........ The bed was glorious, so comfortable and the showers powerful and hot. What else do you need? Well breakfast, and that was everything you could imagine, from porridge to smoked haddock to a full English and more. We were in Covid conditions and felt very safe and sanitised! As you can see from the hotel photographs, they have lots of interesting ornaments and pictures. Central for Cowes and restaurants.

Really disappointing although staff very pleasant. Breakfast fine. Room reached by ascending metal “fire escape” steps followed by several descending stairways & certainly not the room used to advertise what was booked. Fusty smell was overpowering in the room. No fridge & no phone so a return trip via the stairways was necessary if anything was required. Despite daily room service for the four nights we were there the initial toiletries were never replenished. Would not recommend.

Some of the bedroom's furnishings in sore need of repair or replacement, and a strong musty smell, but spotlessly clean. Gorgeous see view. Breakfast area lovely and breakfast itself amazing, variety of options and immaculate tables. Owners very helpful
