The cottage was very quaint and cosy. Staff left you alone to enjoy your holiday which was nice. Check in and check out was a tad confusing and needed attention. Gas fire place instead of actual fire place which is deceptive but safer option I guess for the hotel given the lack of human interaction. All round a pleasant stay.
Lovely property close to restaurants and shops in Cowes. Very clean and quiet but close to the beach and facilities. Simple and straightforward check in and contact with the manager was there if needed.
