We stayed here and had a great time. The location was close to shops, the beach and all the attractions where a short drive. The staff help us with everything we needed, they where very friendly and answered any questions we had. The room we had was clean, tidy and most of all comfortable and relaxing. I would recommend this... More

I would like to Thank Robin so very much for our wonderful stay at the Coachman recently. The service was the most warmest and most welcoming we have had. The staff catered for our every need and the rooms were neat tidy and very clean. I especially like the extra special effort that was mad in providing us with a... More

Stains on sheets, smelly rooms, run down, fuzzy TV, flat batteries in TV remotes, resident dog off lead, broken down playground, dirty pool and to top if all off, bad reception by the very friendly, cold and unhelpful (female)owner. The only thing good about it is the great location but that didn't save it. Would not stay here again as... More

I stayed here with my elderly parents for two nights, and found, like many others, that the whole place is a little tired and in need of some TLC and more meticulous maintenance. TV did not work properly, with half channels not working even after a retune. Odd smell on arrival - not sure of the source, and had to... More

Great location. We'd read a couple of bad reviews just before we travelled so were a bit worried but it was fine - clean and tidy. As mentioned in some previous reviews, the linen and pillows need replacing but it was ok. We didn't swim but the pool looked very clean and nice. Staff were helpful and when we left... More

As previous reviews, the location is fantastic but the room was very, very tired and a little of the cornice on the ceiling was hanging down just waiting to fall off. I found the linen spotless but faded and again tired. One of the light globes over one of the single beds was missing not a big deal but just... More

As per previous reviews, the location is excellent but the lovely owners need to stay in each of their motel rooms to see what the problems are. The main issue for us was the linen. They had small specks of stained blood (!) on both our double bed sheets and the single bed sheets, amongst other stains. The sheets were... More

Great location for the four of us, just a couple of minutes from Cowes centre. Loved the large 2 bedroom unit. Thanks to Josef and Robyn. Shower a bit small, but nice and hot. Brand new flat screen tv. The BBQ and pool/spa were great. Good place to kick back and chill. Will stay here again.

Travelled with wife and 2 kids. Checked in at about 4pm. Allocated unit number 1 which was the one nearest to the entrance to the motel. Room smelt funky although it was breezy. Had to get rid of a few resident spiders in the unit. Spacious unit with 2 bedrooms, microwave, cutlery and cookery. Shower had no shower curtain, and... More

Thank you for your review. Sorry about the shower curtain, the girls must have forgotten to replace it - we change the shower curtains whenever we change the linen. More
