Did not know what to expect but not disappointed. Beautiful setting for this very different escape from the ordinary. Paul and Wendy have it just right very welcoming and excellent breakfast, a five star hotel would have a job to compete with. If you have had your fill of B&B's and hotels try this, you will be pleasantly surprised and... More

The quirkiness of the hotel and a warm welcome make this an experience that we will never forget. We both feel utterly refreshed and relaxed. Particular highlights were coffee on arrival, the beautiful cabin,... More

Very welcoming hosts on this old motor gunboat. Comfortable accommodation and facilities. Excellent full English breakfast.Bembridge is a very quiet location compared to some of the other resorts on the island and is a good base when exploring the east of the island. Plenty of places to eat nearby with an excellent seafood cafe just two minutes walk away. Highlights... More

We have enjoyed our experience aboard the Xoron very much. Bearing in mind it was once a war boat you can still appreciate some it's original features and history. We have found both Wendy and Paul very friendly. The views are amazing. We would recommend the Xoron if you are looking for something a little different.
