We spent a very nice family stay in The Caledon Guest House. Very nice and warm welcome from Mark the owner. The guesthouse is well located. The rooms are very clean and modern, and the breakfast is simply delicious.

Fantastic guest house in lovely spot just up the hill from central Cowes - we had a room with an amazing view over the Solent. Nice quiet spot but still close to town. Andrea and Mark are lovely and the breakfast was amazing!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have amazing views over the Solent - we stayed in room 4 which was lovely.

Tips for other travellers

There is so much to do an see in the area if you have a long weekend. We only had a short stay but when we come back we will love to stay at the Caledon Guest House and take in many of the interesting activities that the Isle of Wight has to offer! A great place.

Well maintained. Very clean and food was of an excellent quality. For the last 5 years we have had short breaks on the Island as we love the place. Now we have found the best place to stay with bus stops nearby allowing us to easily get around which is an added bonus. Car now stays at home....

We had a lovely stay at the Caledon in Cowes on 5-7 October. The guest house is a short walk from the ferry terminal and the main high street, with all its restaurants and pubs. It is very clean, modern and comfortable - and the breakfasts are amazing! Despite having a busy schedule themselves over the weekend we stayed, the hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful, always stopping to chat and helping us out with cycling routes. I would highly recommend staying at the Caledon.

We had a really nice stay. Friendly atmosphere and the breakfast was amazing. The location is great. The house is only a short walk from the ferry terminal and the high street is only down the road.There's a lot of great pubs and little restaurants to visit nearby. Definitely the the place to stay if you're thinking about going to Cowes.

I can really believe this has got such a high score with reviews. It's very well run, very clean, very modern, great breakfast, very welcoming, good parking, fast wifi. EVERYTHING you could need or want is right here. It was a pleasure staying somewhere with no problems or questions at all. Really recommend to anyone and everyone. Will defiantly be staying here if I ever go back to the island. Thanks so much for a warm, happy welcome. FANTASTIC breakfast selection. Well done for doing it right.
