Overall this is a very comfortable, pleasant hotel with excellent service. The rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom is large with a shower, spa bath and toilet. There is a small but efficient kitchenette which has a microwave, small fridge and enough space to prepare a light meal. The balcony is private with a large spa bath and overlooks a lovely leafy garden. Location is very good within walking distance to cowes and next door to the beach. If staying with friends you have the added downstairs space for gathering and enjoying a meal on the decking. The only downside was the couch, which was like a sofa bed and a little uncomfortable to sit on. Also the barbecue on the decking is no longer able to be used by guests. The hosts and in particular the housekeeper, Jenny was absolutely delightful and was happy to clean our room or leave us in private. We had a space to park our cars but there is limited car spaces on a first come basis. I am very surprised by some of the bitter reviews I have read and cannot understand why people write such derogatory reviews. I am happy to recommend this hotel to all.
