We chose a busy weekend to visit the island, with the Scooter Rally and Isle of Wight Steam festival. Accommodation was in very short supply, but by good fortune the Rawlings Hotel was available! Upon our arrival, it was immediately apparent as to why ... We booked a twin room for our daughters and a family room for ourselves and... More

Our room was fine, clean and a good size. The bed was very comfortable. The swimming pool was dirty and the communal areas were like you might expect a poor youth hostel to provide. The waitress at breakfast was very nice and helpful, but this stay was pretty disappointing. When we arrived the receptionist offered to help us with our... More

We decided to give this hotel a chance, despite the poor reviews. Unfortunately, the poor reviews were right, and we were utterly disappointed with our stay. The only thing going for this hotel is the location, you really can't beat it. Very close to the town centre and nice views from the bedrooms over the marina. When we arrived, we... More

Positives: room was pleasant, garden was nice and breakfast was nice a filling in the morning. Sadly the service was poor, breakfast cook was very rude when we were ordering our breakfast. When asked what was in a full english breakfast she simply replied bacon, sausage and egg like we were idiots giving no thought to the fact that we... More

A poor experience. Room and facilities were down at heel . Room was tired , lacking cleanliness, sparkle and facilities - the previous guest's dirty laundry was still in the room. Attempts to raise concerns were met with a very odd attitude - considering that this is a customer service industry. Is the lack of interest because the hotel is... More

Same as other - we found the place dirty, shabby and not looked after. The management not friendly or straight up. Over priced and as others have said fifty pounds a night would be more than enough. Would avoid to be honest.

After a frantic night in the centre of Cowes we were looking forward to a relaxing couple of nights at Rawlings. Check in was not exactly welcoming. We wanted to just throw in our bags but that wasn't easy! The room needed a really good clean. A cotton bud and red fluff on the bathroom floor. Wrapping and a bottle... More

Stayed in the large family room again, fantastic for 3 kids and 2 adults, staff were very helpful and the pool was an added bonus which the kids used every day. Will be going again next year thanks! Visited Arreton barns which was a nice day out, Robin Hill for the kids was great and nice walks for the adults.... More

We stayed at the Rawlings Hotel for 2 nights. I booked this hotel because from the description on the website, it looked beautiful. When we arrived the only person on duty was a young lad, he was very polite and helpful. Our room waa clean and bright and the bed was comfortable. After our first night's stay we had a... More

Thank you for your response, it would have been good for you to mention something at the time!. Im glad you had a nice room which was clean and tidy, a nice breakfast and the staff were polite. For some reason your room must have been in the middle of being done and something happened for the housekeeper to be... More

We have just arrived home after a lovely stay at the Rawlings Hotel in Cowes. We had walked from Yarmouth using the coastal path and received a very warm welcome when we arrived at the hotel. Our room was lovely, we had a fantastic view over the sea and it was clean, tidy and very well furnished, just what we... More
