We stayed at The Island Inn for six weeks in January & February . The hotel is a single story building of some 24 rooms built around a courtyard and pool area. Rooms are quite modern with doors opening onto a small patio area. Our room opened onto the small pool which was very useful for a cooling dip .... More

The reason I have given this a 4 instead of a 5 is to try and be balanced in that whilst the Island Inn for us was perfect it is not always going to be for everyone. We had a really good stay here and the room (Room 19 - Pool view) was really comfortable in terms of everything you... More

A bit of a long review but here goes..... My wife and I, along with my sister and her husband stayed here in June 2014 and it was a fantastic place.

A gem of a hotel, on a very special island. The staff (all of them!) are amazing, especially Sharon, so professional and who seems to be in a permanent state of happiness. Our one small problem (room) was sorted straight away and with a smile. Food is excellent , and the location was perfect with just a 1 minute walk... More

My good lady wife and I have just returned from a very pleasurable two weeks in the Island Inn. Our previous visits to the isle have taken us more to the West Coast, but this was our first visit to the South, and very pleasurably surprised we were too. Having only 24 rooms this is a teeny tiny hotel compared... More

Hotel is quite quirky, but the rooms were great literally a few feet from the Hotel Pool and they were large with a spotless bathroom with all the goodies you would expect. The welcome was great and the food was good too, not fancy but seasonal and well cooked. The breakfast was great, the sausages were up to scratch, so... More

The air conditioning was extremely quiet and efficient for such a large room. The staff were friendly and efficient and we found the food to be good value for... More
