And they were really helpful. Free parking was a bonus m. Highly recommend to anyone who's looking for something a bit different

Just wanted to let everyone know what a fabulous place the Xoron Floatel is to stay. This is our 9th year. Every August bank holiday we stay. Wendy and Paul are perfect hosts.

The Isle of Wight is quirky. Stuck in some weird time warp mis match between the 1950's and the 1980's. The hotels are no different. Even those who have really tried to bcome more contemporary are still creaky, badly painted and will have at least one curio in the garden. So the Xoron cuts out any pretence of sophistication and...

I was taken away for a romantic surprise weekend away by my husband and was blown away by our stay on Xoron. From the moment we stepped aboard the converted WWII converted gunboat we were made to feel completely relaxed and at home by Wendy. The whole of the upper deck is set out as a lounge/breakfast room for visitors... More

I stayed there on the 27th May - Fantastic experience - brilliantly quirky with also serious boat related museum exhibits on board. Not just somewhere to stay but so interesting. Wish I could have spent a little longer but I arrived late and had to get up at 5.00 am to finish my rowing adventure round the Island. A good... More

This is a converted WWII Motor Gun Boat. Paul and Wendy have made this into a comfortable and fascinating place to stay and are excellent hosts. We would definitely stay there again. The view over the harbour is breath-taking.

Would I stay here again? Hell yes! It was a brilliant, quirky, creaky, clean and very hospitable place, with a view to die for. Now listen folks, it's a 1942 WWII converted gunship, not a Sunseeker or Fairline gin palace so do your research & if you want a bland 4 square magnolia characterless THF stylee then move on.

Having found myself with the unlikely need to be on the Isle of Wight in the middle of December, I thought I would try and find a different type of accommodation for my overnight wait for the ferry back to the mainland. After a very quick and easy search on Trip Advidor, my "quirky" search found the oddly named Xoron... More
