Visited in September on a Saturday night at 5pm. Nice and quiet. Ordered food and I had to wait an HOUR after everyone else ( only 6 of us) for my ''messy fries''. No apology . They were luke warm and soggy and overpriced for what they were. Won't order food again.

This was very cheap compared to other places we looked at. It is certainly not 5 star (3 star on the blurb) but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the showers nice and hot. Full English breakfast will set you up for the day. The location is excellent. The bus stop is literally outside the pub and the buses run to East Cowes one way and Newport or Ryde the other way. This obviously means that you will get traffic noise at night but the buses stop running after about 12 midnight so not too much of a problem. The bar itself is like an old fashioned bar used to be. Don't expect anything too fancy but the staff were very helpful and friendly, There is a nice pub garden to use if weather is good, as it was when we were there, The bus service on the I o W is second to none...just buy a rover type ticket (ours was £16 for 48 hours) and you can pretty much cover the island! You are also within spitting distance of Osborne House. In fine weather you could spend most of the day at Osborne House, there is so much to see and plenty of room for s picnic on the private beach. In the evening we got a bus to E Cowes, took a a short walk to the chain=link ferry service, then another short walk in to trendy Cowes where you will find lots of boutiquey style shops and many restaurants. The chain link ferry runs till very late..12.30am and the last bus the other side was about 11.50 so you get plenty of time to have a meal and a drink and then be deposited right outside the pub. If you want expensive, 5 star modern accommodation. (no a/c here) try somewhere in Cowes itself but if you want a place to sleep that is clean and comfortable and very down to earth, this is a good place. Make sure you check when the restaurant is open as I think it changes depending on day/covid/weather. We cannot comment on evening meals there as we ate out each day.

Good location after a trip round Osborne. Serviced but a young lady named Rachel who helped us with everything we needed to know about the rooms and food nothing seemed to much for her. Definitely will be back

· The chef was on annual leave, so no food was available on the evening and we were not told TIL we arrived. We had not planned to have to go out at night and have the added expense of a taxi. We tried to order a taxi and could not get one so had to order takeaway. The bar which is directly below all the rooms was full of drunken loud swearing people and on Saturday night the jukebox was turned up full and blaring out heavy metal music, with one drunken guy singing along at the top of his voice and dancing round the pub. Another drunken swearing woman seemed a permanent fixture at the bar, and we heard all this TIL close of business from our room. The room was thick with dust and when we went to hang our clothes in the wardrobe this was also thick with dust and I had to go and ask them to clean it. We asked for a manager to speak to and were told he could be found mornings only sat at the corner of the bar, so when we did see him the following morning he wasnt at all apologetic and suggested we should have walked elsewhere to eat! Quite honestly this place is like a working men’s club which has decided to cash in on the fact it’s opposite osbourne house and pretend to be a hotel. There is not even a reception desk, you have to go in the bar,pick your way through the drunkards where there is only one member of staff on to deal with everything. Absolutely AVOID this place at all costs. There’s a perfectly nice premier inn not far away with a fantastic beefeater. Stay there instead!

We booked because of location next to Osbourne House and the restaurant for the evening. Restaurant now not open for lunch or dinner although opening times are in bar and room. We were told restaurant closed months ago. Not true! They could have told people booking that they no longer offered food lunch or dinner. They denied it was open for meals a month or so ago. Very overpriced for facilities. Bar was brash and would have been horrible to sit in. Room tired. Bulb not working in central light. Toilet flush faulty. Public toilet by bar not clean. Tv remote was not in room. Told nearest restaurant was 7 to 8 minutes walk. Not true it was 20 to 25 minutes away downhill... then uphill! Breakfast was OK. Ladies working there were pleasant. Very disappointed and very overpriced
