We have just returned from a 5 night break at Carisbrooke House. We cannot recommend this lovely B&B highly enough. The owners made us feel very welcome and the whole place has a lovely 'homely' feel!
We have quite a large (boisterous!) puppy and she was made welcome as well - they even changed the gorgeous white sheets to something a bit more 'forgiving' after the first day - when they ended up with a loving muddy paw print on them... oops sorry! They said not to worry about muddy paws - which was lovely to hear and really helped us to relax and include our furry family member in our holiday! The room was spacious, had everything you need, and the bed was WAY too comfy - we didn't want to get out!!! Hee hee!!
The hotel could not be any more perfectly placed for dog-owners - it is directly opposite Ferncliffe Gardens which is an ideal place for late night/early morning 'business' trips.... although, be warned.... We nicknamed this park 'Log-opolis' - apparently Isle of Wight dog owners are not quite as good at picking up their dog's 'deposits' as I'm used to....! Watch your step.....! There are MANY MANY MAAAAANY beautiful places to take your pooch though - and we enjoyed cliff top walks, and plenty of ball games on the beach (We visited in February so no restrictions on the beach at this time - think there are restrictions May to Sep!). We met some lovely other dog owners who live on the Island and were more than happy to 'play' for a few minutes - and even share their 'treats'!!
We could not have asked for anything more for breakfast - if you want a delicious and piping hot traditional brekkie then you can't get any better! Plenty of cereal choices, fruit, yoghurt, fruit juice, very tasty full english and as much tea and toast as we needed! All fresh, hot and delivered in a polite and friendly manner!
The hotel is ideally placed for the town too and is only a few minutes walk away! Ideal location for exploring the rest of the Island too!
We will definitely be returning to The Carisbrooke House - and we definitely recommend it if you're visiting the Isle of Wight - especially if part of your family has fur and paws!
Thank you for making our stay to the Island comfy and enjoyable.
