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

We stayed for 3 nights in late September, an ideal base to get anywhere on the island from. We stayed in Room 5, nice big comfortable bed, and 2 windows with an interesting view of the western Solent. As the windows are high up there's no privacy issue. Breakfasts are great and served between 7-9 am in the weeks and... More

Me and my partner stayed here for a couple of nights following our wedding. Room 5 was nice and big, but no sea view which was a little disappointing as overlooked all the houses so had to make sure the blinds were always closed. Room was decorated lovely and was clean and bathroom was nice, but bed was very very... More

This is a hotel with a full-blown pub bar downstairs - dog friendly and such lovely folk behind the bar. 4 real ales on tap, a good menu, a little pricey but the food is excellent and the views over the Solent have to add to the price. Having said a little pricey - be careful - the portions are... More

Very clean and friendly hotel staff could not do enough for us. Lovely room well presented and very clean. Great food with large choice and very good value. Good quiet position on seafront with sailing club near by.

High quality, comfortable en-suite accommodation with great views across The Solent, competent, attentive and very helpful staff, excellent breakfasts and an attractive evening menu made this a very pleasant stay for my wife and myself for six nights in July. Highly recommended - the number one choice for us on the Island. Chris and Roy - North Yorkshire
