Beautiful setting, stunning location - room was spacious airy and very clean. Facilities very good, everything you would need - and the service - especially from Tony, the Manager - was exemplary!

Food was generously portioned and of excellent quality, served in a friendly and timely manner. Although communal dining may not be everyone's bag, this is not a hotel to overlook.

Many thanks for a lovely stay

We stayed with a large group of friends. Staff always helpful. Huge breakfasts and packed lunches. Good evening meals but they need to be more generous with the vegetables.
Plenty of rooms for relaxation or activities.
Heated outdoor pool looked inviting but the weather was too breezy for me to be tempted. Two ducks seemed to appreciate the pool.

Room Tip: Room 21 has view of bay and is a good size

Travelling as a family with a small child is always challenging.
One view from this Hotel's cafe overlooking the green surrounding and the scenic ocean gets you in the IOW mood straight away.
If you are expecting some 5 star super executive stay, this hotel is not for you.
But, for anyone who wishes to have a comfortable stay and most of all loves the outdoors, there can be no other place in IOW as Fresh Water Bay country house.
The hotel facilities are really nice. Yes, they do look slightly old but there is no compromise on cleanliness and comfort. The hotel staff were very helpful and helped us with all our requests.
Food was nice, but the main attraction of this place is Location ....

Room Tip: High Floor for nice views.

We travel for four to six months a year. We stayed for a week at a lovely National Trust guest property close to this hotel and stopped in several times for coffee and/or a meal. The restaurant views and wonderful staff members were remarkable. When our week ended at the NT apartment we happily moved to this hotel for two nights, where we had the magnificent #18 mentioned in other reviews, with huge windows and gorgeous vistas. End of January is off-off season, with few guests on the island, but we were treated with every courtesy and trust. The breakfast alone is worth the price of the room!

Suzanne and a lovely young woman from Hungary (I'm sorry we didn't get your name!) were incredibly kind and efficient, as were the other workers in the dining room. They went the extra mile to ensure everything was perfect. The hotel manager, Tony, gave us a tour of the premises and was very helpful, as was the man who cleaned the rooms (and what a wonderful sense of humor!). All in all, we would have simply stayed on if we hadn't had places to go and friends to meet.

This is a wonderful hotel that evokes an earlier era in all of the right ways. We loved it!

We have been looking for years for a good homely hotter near Freshwater and at long last have found one. It is great large bedroom ( Room18) which a fantastic view of the bay. Warm and lots of tea/coffee available in your room and a really lovely breakfast, can throughly recommend it.
