All I can say is go and try it - you won't be disappointed. Stunning scenery on the deck, relaxing sitting room, great night's sleep, superb breakfast. Wendy and Paul are great hosts, made us feel very welcome and always there to offer tea / coffee when needed. Would go back any time.

A beautiful location with friendly owners who made our stay extremely comfortable. The Xoron has 3 rooms, all are quaint and quirky.Breakfasts are delicious and are made to order. The owners are approachable and have a wealth of knowledge about the island and things to do and see. Looking forward to booking up again

We stayed here for a couple of nights for our wedding anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better welcome. As the boat is a converted WW2 gunboat, it doesn't make for the most luxurious stay, but we had a very comfortable bed and all the basics we could need. The quirky surroundings (including a mini 'museum' of interesting war/naval... More

The website is a very true representation of the accomodation offered. This floatel provides a unique experience where visitors can stay on board an historic vessel with stunning views across Bembridge Harbour. It is a good base for walkers as well as for those who wish to explore the island by car. Wendy and Paul are excellent hosts and passionate... More

We didn't know what to expect but we needn't have worried. Excellent hosts, good food, comfortable beds and a gorgeous view. Furthermore the boat is packed with interesting artefacts. Wendy & Paul were most accommodating and did all they could to make our 3 night stay enjoyable. Very glad we went. Lynda & Bob
