Using Booking.com(from UK) we were greeted by friendly owners for our two night(B&B) stay. Our deluxe double room upstairs was enormous and spotlessly clean. It looked as if it had been recently decorated and couldn't be faulted. If you had mobility issues you may struggle with the external stairs to reach room 22. Breakfast was delivered to the room the... More

We arrived in Cowes at tea time on Friday with nowhere to stay. Having been in to 2 other motels who told us they only had expensive rooms available we called in and were given a deluxe room for the price of a smaller room. The manager was very friendly and gave us excellent information regarding the penguin parade and... More

Clean good sized room. Fairly basic accommodation but clean and well equipped. Decoration was a little worn and outdated but it did not detract from our night's stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. We boked our stay at the motel to be near the penguin parade, the centre of Cowes and the beach. Proved to be a good choice and... More

Fantastic location in a walking distance to the beach, big playground by the beach, stores, cafes and restaurants. Easy drive to all other attractions. Self-contained apartments were well equipped in everything we needed for a family weekend. Lovely staff, clean rooms, nice amenities. We will be back!

We stayed at this motel for a night when we were in cowes to see the penguin parade. I can only agree with the other reviewers. This is a very friendly and exceptionally clean motel in a good location. The owners were really helpful on hints on what to see in the area. Local knowledge is always a great help... More

This is an excellent small motel. Most of the rooms have been updated and are clean and modern with comfortable beds. The outside of the motel and rooms is reasonably dated and you would easily opt for one of the more fancier places in town. I have stayed here twice now and will definitely be coming back. What makes it... More

The Motel is like a Travel Inn (UK) in that it is clean and spacious and an ideal place for getting your head down after a day of exploring the island. However what really stood out were the wonderful staff. They went above and beyond our expectations.

Quiet location in easy walking distance to main street, supermarkets, beach and restaurants. We had a very spacious 2 brm self contained unit, each double bedroom with its own ensuite.
