I stayed for two nights on a break by myself to the Isle of Wight. A good impression was had before I’d even arrived when the taxi driver taking me from the boat crossing from the ferry port in east Cowes over to west Cowes to the hotel said “oh, you’ve picked a nice hotel to stay in” always a good sign when the local taxis recommend it.
The location is amazing, right on the sea front a beautiful 10 minute stroll into the town centre.
I arrived too early to check in, but they were able to look after my bag, and when I came back after check in time it was waiting in my room.
All the staff were friendly and helpful with great local advice. One of the reception team printed all the bus time tables I need to get to the Needles (a must see), so she was most helpful!
There is a lovely terrace overlooking the sea which is a real sun trap, with polite friendly service.
The room was lovely, well kept and a good size. The bed was very comfortable too. I didn’t use complementary toiletries provided but they looked excellent quality.
The cooked breakfast was excellent quality and piping hot.
Lastly of course I visited during Covid times, they have very sensible measures in place, (one way entry/exit, Perspex screens, face visors/masks, sanitiser, reduced restaurant seating, table service of drinks only) none of which detracted at all from the enjoyment of the stay.
I will be back. less
