“Good Food”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

We recently ate in the restaurant at Albert Cottage to celebrate my wifes birthday and enjoyed it very much. The food was good, but the menu was quite sparse. It was a pity that there was no steak on it although the table next door seemed to be enjoying them. Service was slightly below par but maybe this was just a glitch on the night. Nice atmosphere.

Beautiful hotel with lovely rooms. Food is very nice too. Hotel is of historic interest and you can imagine servants carrying back and forth for Her Majesty down the long and spooky serving corridor. Staff were attentive without going overboard. Nice gardens too.

I stayed here for five nights with my partner. The room was lovely - large but cosy, with huge bathroom.
Everything was scrupulously clean, and we received a fresh supply of large fluffy towels daily.
The bathroom had a shower, easily big enough for two, and a bath, with the most fantastic water pressure I have ever found in a hotel. The shower temperature, however, had a range that varied between hot and very hot, so in summer it may not be so pleasant.
A couple of small niggles with the room itself were that no iron/board or bar fridge were supplied. An iron and board were delivered promptly on request, incuding a very hi-tech iron which made the chore very easy. For our relatively long stay a small fridge would have been a bonus. I visited the local Waitrose for picnic-lunch items, rather than splurge on lunch out every day, and wasn't able to keep anything fresh for longer than a couple of days. I wasn't able to buy beer or white wine with no way to chill it, but suspect that a solution would have been found by staff had I asked.
The staff made us both feel very welcome, and looked after our every request promptly and with a smile, so overall a very pleasant stay and hope to return. The points above are really nit-picking and did not detract from my enjoyment of the stay.
Visitors should bear in mind that apart from Osbourne House (not open on weekdays during winter), there isn't a whole lot to do in Cowes, however Ryde and Newport are nearby for shopping and more choices of dining, and Portsmouth can be easily reached (20 mins by catamaran from Ryde) for a day out visiting the historical ships.

I stayed here for a week whilst on business........this is a fantastic hotel. The room was very large and even had a leather sofa by the TV so I wasnt just sat on the bed all the time (I have stayed in more expensive hotels and the rooms were no where near as grand as the one I had), the bathroom as well was very spacious.........the food was very tasty (do nott expect big portions). The staff were helpful and friendly and could not do enough. I will be bringing the wife here in high season as when I was there Cowes was dead at night and not much to do.

Considering I was here for a week by myself I did not feel boxed in due to the size of the room and grounds so I would imagine a nights stay would be fantastic.

We have not yet stayed at the hotel for a holiday but we have dined in the restaurant here twice. Once part of the Osborne House estate this delightful hotel is open to non residents for lunch and dinner. The food here is beautifully prepared, cooked and presented. The staff were attentive without being invasive and the menu is reasonably priced at around £25 per head for three courses/dinner. We shall definitely be returning -hopefully for an overnight stay next time!
