On holiday on the IOW. We were here two years ago but only popped in for a drink ( best served Pimms I've ever had!!) but this year we were invited for a Sunday evening dinner. Very good menu. Hubby and I plumped for the Scampi ( as did 5 out of 9 of us dining). Scampi came in a... More

My partner and I stayed at the Duke for five nights to do a course in Cowes. The room was very small and incredibly hot. The airing cupboard was right by the room so even with radiators off it was still much too hot. The room was clean with the exception of a pillow case with a blood stain and... More

The staff were all really friendly and helpful, the breakfast was really good but the beds/mattresses need replacing. We had an annex room, there were springs that had broken in the double mattress and they clunked and moved even when you turned over. The extra camp bed was small and the mattress was thin.

8 of us on a stag event enjoyed the Duke's hospitality for 3 meals and all were fabulous. Good, straightforward food cooked well and served by friendly staff. Just what we wanted.

I loved this place. Friendly staff, Clean room, Fantastic food, Great location, Off road parking and Comfy bed. If you are on business or a break this hotel will cater for both. After a 4 hour journey I was looking forward to a meal and a quiet night. After settling into my very clean room and bathroom, which contained everything... More

I have stayed in the Duke of York several times over the past few years all short breaks and I haven't been disappointed once. The rooms are clean although, possibly a little dated, that does not detract from its charm. The staff have always been courteous and helpful. The food is excellent and very good value. Usually on a day... More

Had a great meal here. The meals all taste properly homemade. Nice relaxed atmosphere. There was quite a large group eating when we visited but we didn't have to wait for service and staff made everyone feel welcome. Worth walking a few step past the High Street.

Called by for a Pub Lunch. We had the Cod & Chips, which comprised of reasonable quality Fish, the Chips were okay but not really enough of them, the Peas were Peas, all served fairly promptly. No problems at all with the Drinks or the service. So, all in all it was average/okay, but at £12.45 a portion it was... More
