The hotel has a good sized car park and is right on the coast with across the sound to Portsmouth. Check in was the most genuinely welcoming I have experienced in a long time. I was also upgraded to a sea view room (12)... More

When we arrived at the hotel the staff were extremely welcoming and even though we arrived earlier than the check-in time our room was ready and we were also upgraded, we also had a late check out. The room was of a really good size... More

Friendly staff, clean, good sized room, reasonable (full English) breakfast, convenient location for walking into Cowes. Stayed here several times and would return. Try to get a room with view north overlooking The Solent if possible.

A usual pleasant stay with Best Western. Greeted upon arrival by friendly staff who showed me to my small but well appointed double room. I had a side room with a sea view which was nice. The mornings breakfast was the the usual full English with some local produce, with several other options available on request from the friendly staff.... More
