My wife and I stayed at Knight's Rest earlier this month whilst visiting her family on the island. I'd been sleeping badly at home but had three nights of comfortable sleeping at Knight's Rest. "Come to Knight's Rest and have a good Night's Rest" they should say! Anyway, witty jokes aside, my wife and I had a very comfortable stay... More

The food was cooked fresh and they paid great attention to my partner and my dietary requirements. The only issue was the bed was a bit stiff, otherwise a truly... More

Eight weary cyclists arrived after 62km clockwise from Yarmouth to the warmest of welcomes from the lovely couple who own the Knights Rest. The rooms were full of character and beautifully clean & fresh. Lots of thoughtful touches made our visit very enjoyable and restful indeed. The breakfast was delicious. Everything cooked to perfection and of a really high standard.... More

It's their first venture into this field and we had a lovely, long weekend, stay. They were friendly and helpful and provided an excellent breakfast.
