We stayed here for 5 days and loved the whole experience. David was so friendly and helpful and the breakfasts he provided were amazing! We would definitely recommend this place to you all and will be returning. Rooms were very clean, extremely comfortable and we have no negative comments. Thank you!

I made a flying visit to the IoW, and looking for somewhere to stay close to Queen Victoria's Osborne House but within walking distance of Cowes this seemed like the perfect location. Owners David and Marde are lovely people, and they had fully prepared themselves to welcome guests in a new socially distanced version of Crossways House. The B+B is very interesting and quaint, I was staying in the main house so can't comment on the four lodge rooms a few metres from the house but the garden between the two parts of the property was very nice. Breakfast in the morning was very nice, David cooks and has a wide offering available including full english/pancakes/fruits/cereal/porridge. The social distancing measures did make the experience slightly weird, with less people visiting I only saw one other guest during my time there, but David and Marde still made sure I had a nice time and were happy to help with any requests. They also have an adorable golden retriever called Sunny who loves the lounge in the garden and in the hallway which was a nice surprise. If I'm ever heading back to the island I'll probably check in to see if there's a room available.

An absolute gem of a B&B, two minutes from the ferry terminal and 5 minute walk up the drive to Osborne house. Hosts were lovely and very accommodating. Breakfast was amazing, could not have asked for more. Room in the annex was small (and a little noisy from the road) but clean and had everything needed for a short stay. Will definitely be back next time I'm on the island.

Well what a find ! We spent 3 nights during early September 2019. The house is amazing, no nasty extensions or tasteless decorating ... The second you walk through the door you are made welcome by David the host. David showed us the way to room 2 the room is large and very comfortable with the largest period wardrobe i have ever seen. The four poster bed was extremely comfortable also the heating in the room was easily controllable and efficient.Breakfast is a cut above the rest with a good choice ... the full English is a must made with quality ingredients and presented on crockery that goes well with the period of the house. The blueberry pancakes are also amazing please try them !.The host has collected many fine pieces of furniture well suited to the house. Osborne house is a few yards away and only one mile away from the ferry terminal. Plenty of onsite parking is available only a few steps from the front door. Great place !

stayed here with family whilst attending a funeral on the island. Rooms were comfortable and clean with nice views over the garden. Breakfast was very good and hosts were very helpful and welcoming. A good location for visiting Osbourne House and nearby beaches.
