The apartment is spotlessly clean, quite spacious, comfortable and well-equipped and furnished. The kitchen is fully equipped with a big fridge, a microwave, a stove, cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery that we decided to grab some foodstuff from the nearby Coles supermarket and fixed our dinner and breakfast. The beds are very comfy with clean linen. Beautiful deco which makes... More

Great location on the beach and a short walk to the Cowes high street. The apartment we had was surprisingly spacious...a lot bigger than we were expecting. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Booked via Wotif we did not have a serviced room, however the staff were very helpful and made us feel spoilt on our trip. Great distance from the beach and close to the supermarket and main strip. Excellent room- very neat and organised with all facilities. Would recommend to all!

We stayed just one night, but would definetly stayed more. As a family with two teenagers, the room was not so big (there was not a separate bed for the boys, just two bed in the kitchen area), but very confortable. The bedroom was very good. The hotel is in a very nice location, close to beach and many restaurants... More

Great location, excellent family accommodation. Walking distance to cowes shops and directly opposite park and beach. We love it here and have returned 3 times. Rooms are not large but suit a small family or young children.

Stayed overnight in December 2013 in a beachfront premium room, which was spacious and clean and we had excellent views of the esplanade. There was a king in the main room, and three single beds (one bunk bed) in a seperate room with the kitchen. Check-in was friendly and efficient. Secure on-site car parking was an added bonus and if... More
