Dame Paola "Molestrangler" and me are very lucky to have travelled the World. During these trips we've patronised 2 star, 3 star, 4 & 5 star hotels including several Grand Hotels. Then last year we found the VILLA ROTHSAY. Oh joy. What a cracking place. See my 2015 report. Run by the sisters in "HARMONY " Margaret and Miranda, ably... More

A great little hotel a short walk from Cowes High Street. Fantastic collection of yachting and power boating memorabilia. Friendly service and good sized comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast with a great view over the Solent while you are eating. A much better place to stay than the chain offerings.

A lovely few days in this unusual hotel situated in an excellent location some 10 minutes from the restaurant pubs, shops and Boatyards of Cowes. The decor is quirky and with a Victorian flavour. Margaret and her staff provide a friendly and willing service with nothing too much trouble. The breakfasts are superb and if you are lucky enough to... More

Stayed here in mid July and had a great nights sleep in a comfortable room. Reception was friendly and relaxed, showing us to our rooms. My room, overlooking the sea was great. Breakfast the next morning in the traditional but well executed dining room was delicious. Beatific setting too. Will come again

My husband and I spent two weeks in southern England in June - a trip that I planned myself after doing extensive research on the internet. I will say the the highlight of our trip was the time spent on the Isle of Wight and based in Cowes. Everything about our stay at Villa Rothsay was superb. The location itself... More

My four friends stayed here for 2 nights and had a great stay, very comfortable rooms and great decor. Will revisit again. Margaret made them very welcome and kindly gave a lift with luggage up the road to the house we were staying in. Only 15 min walk from the ferry port but steep hills if you have heavy suit... More

Having been invited onto a sailing event at very short notice I booked only hours before turning up. The staff could not have been more welcoming and Villa Rothsay is a fantastic little gem of hotel. It’s only a short stroll out of town but well worth the views. I’d recommend this place any day !

I visited on a business trip and had a lovely stay. The hotel itself has fantastic character and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and the lounge is so cosy. There is great internet in the bedrooms as well. I would highly recommend this hotel for either business or pleasure, it's an absolute gem!

As a local Island couple celebrating 20 years together this year, and looking for somewhere special for a Valentine's dinner, I remembered having had many good meals with friends at the Villa Rothsay some 25 years ago. A quick visit to the hotel's website and facebook page later and we were booked up for dinner with a good deal on... More

In connection with a business trip to Cowes, IOW, I had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Rothsay Hotel. I was taken back in time and experienced a fantastic and cozy house of the Victorian period. Excellent, professional and personal service and a solid English breakfast if you wish.
