This property is in an excellent location at a short walk to beach and shops. The twin room was spacious - there was a queen bed with single bed nearby, very convenient for our family. There was enough linen for the room. The bathroom was fresh and clean. Kitchen had ample supplies and cooking facilities. It was great having a back door to this room exiting to the shared outdoor walkway leading to the pool. Staff were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Hardly any noise from the street at night. Our only qualm was that smoking was permitted directly outside all rooms which meant that smoke wafted into our room from next door, although we have encountered this issue elsewhere in Cowes at other properties.

Room 18 needs a makeover. The bathroom floor covering is quite stained. A shower over the spa is less than desirable from a safety point of view. A repaint (in brighter colours) is really wanting. The bed was comfortable and a lighter-weight doona was available and was used as the one on the bed was of winter weight and quite heavy.
