“Great place, super convenient for Cowes, very helpful owners.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2009

I stayed here for business as an alternative to staying at one of the over priced hotels on the island (you know who you are!!). The owners were very helpful, and the room was as good as.....if not better than most hotels. The selection for breakfast was superb, and included in the price, as well as WiFi for free.....which at a hotel would have been another £15 on the bill at least. Very convenient to get around the island (chain ferry to East Cowes 2 mins away), and also great for getting into Cowes for the evening, less than 5 mins walk.

Stayed June 2009, traveled on business

GREAT. What else to say? GREAT place, LOVELY people, and GREAT food (the breakfast was soooo good :) )!!!!
Quiet area without traffic, 5 minute away from the sea and centre, with lots of restaurants and nice shops.
For the cyclists like me:
-it's right on the bike path around the island, you have just to go out of the door and follow the signs
- safe storage for your bike in the garden

Strongly recommended!

Carlsberg don’t do B&Bs, but if they did, The Caledon would probably be the best in the world. Seriously though, a REALLY nice B&B, very warm and welcoming hosts, easy going and helpful - Mark and Andrea should do courses on how to set up and run B&Bs. Extremely clean, and well decorated – felt like a boutique hotel in fact. If/when I go back to Cowes, I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else.

Finding somewhere family-friendly to stay can sometimes be tricky. Andrea and Mark have got it absolutely right with their charming B&B just minutes from Cowes seafront. We had a comfortable stay in the large family room, which was immaculately clean. Thoughtful extras like the bathrobes and very nice bickies made it feel more like a hotel than a B&B, but most of all the fabulous service that was offered made us feel very welcome and relaxed. We had a superb breakfast, Marks 'Nearly Famous Fry Up' set us up for the day, and our 4 year old declared his boiled egg and soldiers "much better than the ones at home". Thanks for a lovely stay, we will certainly be back!

Wonderfully clean, with personable host. The location is excellent, too, since it is less than a mile from the Southampton ferry. As B&Bs go, this is the standard!
