Stayed at Annie's for 7 nights so that we could do the tourist traps, and take in the festival without camping. Annie's is in a great spot, just 5 minute walk into East Cowes where you can catch the chain ferry into Cowes where there is more in the way of pubs, restaurants and general amenities. Also just 10 minute drive from Newport, although everything on IOW is max 30 minutes away by car! If you stay for the festival, the bus goes to and from Waitrose which is just 2 mins away
The room was exceptionally clean, good bed, shower and sea view from room 7. Also found it very quiet, with no outside traffic of note.
The breakfast is great, there is lots of choice of cereal, yogurts etc. The fruit platter was lovely, and a big hit with us! The hot breakfast was well cooked, and Annie will tweak it to your desires as requested!
Annie herself is a great host, who will do anything for you and is so helpful. We visited a couple of restaurants she recommended and weren't disappointed. A lot of local knowledge as well, so like having a tourist advice centre serving your breakfast, great stuff!
