“Two nights at Annie's”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Two Senior couples booked two nights at Annie's without consulting trip advisor.

We soon found that this was not necessary, as from the moment we arrived she made us feel as though we had been lifelong friend's.

An in out board, trays for muddy boots, ever detail considered.

Our room was spotless, large, super walk in shower, everything you could possibly need.

Detail breakfast requirements taken the previous evening ensured a freshly cooked meal on the table at an agreed time.

Location, 5mins walk from Southampton ferry, Osborne House close by.

Annie is a charming and well organised lady who makes a very good B & B something special.

Room Tip: If you have problem with stairs book a room on a lower floor.

We stopped overnight, and booked Annie's in preference to sleeping on the boat, which was the right choice! A nice room with all the "mod cons", including a lovely walk in shower room. Flat TV, Tea & Coffee, and free wifi all make this a very pleasant place.

The breakfast was really superb, with plenty of choice and a wonderfully cooked Full English. The icing on the cake was Annie's offer to collect and return us to East Cowes marina, which was a 15 minute walk away....thank you so much! Also, the price was very reasonable....

Finally, just for info, they have built a brand new Waitrose very near by, and it looks like East Cowes is finally going to be re-developed a bit, so something to watch out for as the area improves.

I originally booked 4 nights over Cowes week and needed to cancel as plans changed as I was now doing the Fastnet. Instead of loosing my deposit Annie suggested I could just change the reservation to the Saturday, which was really kind.
I was also delayed on the Saturday from my original arrival time and Annie was very friendly and accommodating about it. The B&B its self was clean and very comfortable. Its also only a few minutes walk via the short cut to the chain ferry. Highly recommended!

Went with friends for their first trip to IOW. Cannot disagree with any previous positive comments. Lovely breakfast. Warm greeting. Nice rooms. Location not a problem. Probably useful for walking off the excesses of West Cowes. Would stay again.

Stayed 3 nights with Annie, and would do it again. I was hesitant about being in E. Cowes vs W. Cowes, but truly enjoyed taking the chain ferry and walking everywhere was easy.
Annie is a warm and gracious host and my husband and I enjoyed the lovely breakfasts.
Our room had a modern open shower that was a fun surprise. This is a lovely establishment run by a lady that cares about her guests.
We were visiting the island for a sailing event.
