Xoron Floatel
Ranked #5 of 9 Bembridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We found this place on the Isle of Wight website, and fancied something a little different to the norm. Both the Mrs & me had a very enjoyable stay on the Xoron. Although being very quirky, it was loads of fun and I spent most of the 4 days ducking being a 6ft 5in tall bloke. Every morning we was served up a lovely plate of 'full english' by Wendy which set us up for the day ahead.
Both Paul (Wendy?) and Wendy were fantastic hosts, full of info about the island and plenty of banter to go with it. We even managed to watch England qualify for the world cup in the guest lounge.
If we was to visit the island again, we would most definitely consider staying at the Xoron Floatel again. Cheers Paul n Wendy!

I am so sorry to take so long to reply to your review, I was locked out of my management console,
However back in now so all is well, Thank for your very kind words, we try out best at all times, but you will no doubt agree Wendy tries harder than myself, but i am with her in the back ground.
she does front of house so much better than Me, glad you enjoyed your stay.

We chose here as we wanted a change from the norm. We wasn't disappointed. Paul and Wend yare great hosts and full of fun. The boat itself is full of quirky items......my favourite is Vincent Van Fox Paul has found out a lot of history surrounding the boat which is great, makes interesting reading. Breakfast was a most entertaining and amusing time, with the banter between Paul and Wendy, ourselves and the other guests....it was a really happy family atmosphere. We hope to return next year it would be great if the same guests were there.Very much enjoyed our stay thanks again Paul and Wendy

Well we all enjoyed your stay with us, glad you had a good time, I'm still looking for a left hand fox ear so Vincent can doesn't look lop sided, ( for anyone else reading this we have a stuffed fox with a missing ear ),
again Guy's it was our pleasure to look after you both, hope to see you next year.

We chose this b and b basically for a laugh and we weren`t let down.Wendy and Paul are great,(I put Wendy first because it was her who was seen to be the worker,sorry Paul we know you are probably sweating over the pile of washing-up). We were there for a week and very enjoyable it was,we met some lovely fellow guests who all agreed what great hosts we had.Very relaxed atmosphere with interesting conversation and excellent food.I say quirky because one doesn`t expect a gun boat to offer so much room,our double room had plenty of space with tea and coffee facilities,a dressing room and adequate shower room although I don`t advise anyone over 5ft 10in to enjoy this as it would be a struggle. It all adds to the fun though and we would certainly return.Thankyou PAUL and Wendy for a very happy holiday

Duncan & Lynda, it was so nice to have you both as our guest's, I've said it before but I will say it again, its you that makes it all worthwhile, As for your comment about Wendy doing all of the work, I agree she does, but your forgetting that behind every great Woman is a great Man. my skill comes doing all the back up tasks without being noticed. and as you mentioned up to my elbow's in washing up.
Maybe one day us poor unsung hero's behind our great wives will be recognised for our true value, until then I am happy to stay the silent one in the background,

Was only a weekend but we loved it. Unique surroundings and comfortable room, service and reception friendly and very welcoming. Though we could see home (Hayling Island) across the water it felt like a real holiday sitting on the deck with a drink.

The old girl could do with a lick of paint and is showing some signs of her age but I had to take her it was our anniversary :) (joke love) seriously there are signs of wear but the boat has history so deserves her retirement and some respect - we loved it

Thanks for the review Andy, it was a pleasure to have you both, your a bit hard on the old girl, she scrubbed up well with a bit of makeup and her best party frock, since your visit I have finally finished the paint job on the outside,
I look across to Hayling Island most mornings to try and catch a glimpse of you both walking on the beach over there, but I can never see you,
