Great stay at The Woodvale - really nice boutique B&B, better than some more expensive hotels I've stayed at. Great rooms that have clearly been well designed and decorated, and with fantastic views. We ate in the restaurant which again, I couldn't find fault with - and with the backdrop of the solent the location really is second to none.... More

We were popping out for a quick lunch with family which included an infant. We were able to find a table with plenty of space so that little one could be taken in still in buggy. The pub was offering an online discount voucher which was gladly accepted and processed by the staff. The gentleman at the bar was pleasant... More

We held our wedding reception at The Woodvale on the 7th February and we could not fault them in anyway. From the moment we first contacted them they couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Throughout the whole process nothing was too much trouble. The day was beyond perfect. The room looked completely amazing and we had so many compliments... More

Rooms have been refurbished and bathrooms completely re-decorated to a good standard. We had the Sunday night special of room, dinner, b & b with a bottle of wine included. Dinner food was great, hot food on a hot plate with good portions. Steak cooked superb and I had the Sunday roast with "proper" mint sauce. Breakfast next day was... More

We have stayed at the Woodvale twice in the past three weeks. Both visits exceeded our expectations. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and warm, with tea and coffee making facilities. The bathrooms are well equipped with towels and all necessary for our overnight stays. The food was very good. Two of our party had steak which they said was... More

This is, in my opinion, a very good pub. The staff are friendly and it has a nice blend of being a proper pub as well as having a good selection of well cooked food. I visited twice over the 2014 festive period along with seven other friends and everyone enjoyed their meals on the first night. Me and two... More

We have sat outside in the summer, we have sat inside in the winter, both are fantastic. Sitting on the terrace in the summer with a drink, or a meal and gazing out across the Solent, wow!. Sitting inside, with the open fire, wow. All in all, a very nice experience. Try the steak pie, you will not be disappointed.

We have just had a few days at the Woodvale, we were extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the room. Good quality bedding, the bed was a bit too firm for us, as we are more used to a softer mattress . The room was cleaned each day absolutely perfectly, all my personal items like my make up and shoes... More

We found the Woodvale after searching for 'Pubs in Cowes' on Google. Having read previous reviews we decided to visit for our roast dinner and we certainly weren't disappointed! There was a choice of Beef or Lamb so both me and my partner opted for the lamb. The portion was plentiful and so very tasty. The beer and wine were... More
