Four of us stayed at Halcyone Villa B&B the night before the 'Walk the Wight' Charity event last Sunday (8th May). The Halcyone Villa was very clean, spacious and met our needs. The shower was very good. It was a nice central location and a short walk into town. The living room had a nice view of the sea. Simon and Lee were very friendly and helpful hosts. I would stay here again and recommend it. Rob

Recently stayed a few nights as part of a weekend away with friends. Excellent service from start to finish from both Lee and Simon. Rooms were very spacious clean and well presented, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts were amazing, will definitely be booking again in the near future.

So where do we start? So where do we start? I personally was a little apprehensive pulling up but Lee came to meet us and asked if we'd like to stay in the apartment or the room we'd booked. My partner is disabled but can manage some stairs so, we took the apartment as there was more room. Lee was perfect as a host too. Very amiable, cooked an awesome breakfast for me aswell as I'm vegan. The villa was positioned quite well for the beachfront and other facilities. Plenty of towels and add-ons like shampoo & conditioner - very unexpected but great to find. The size of the apartment was perfect. Very bright too. We'd have no hesitation about staying at Halcyone Villa again. We'd just book through Lee again and NOT booking.com! Friendly for all too.

We stayed here one night. The house is a 10 minute walk to the seafront and shopping/restaurant area and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Furniture looked new and good quality. Can’t say much about the breakfast as we only had cereal and tea and coffee from a machine. However we were able to eat at 7am for an early start, and the owner would have provided a cooked breakfast at that time if we had wanted it. He was also flexible about check in times. I should mention there is a cat on the premises, in case this is a problem for you.

We had Sunrise which is a great flat. Unfortunately we only stayed one night so but it’s lovely and we’d happily have stayed the week! All I really need is a comfortable bed, decent shower and a good breakfast. All three were very much ticked here. There is loads of space including a fully stocked kitchen and dining room. It’s easy to walk into Cowes but quiet too. Friendly hosts as well, we really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Such a great place to stay in Cowes. Nothing was too much trouble for Lee who looked after us so well during our stay on The Isle of Wight. Our room was spotless and amply supplied with tea, coffee, milk and sugar. The breakfast was also first class with something to suit everyone. Thank you Lee and Simon for a lovely relaxing stay at your beautiful bed and breakfast.

Great B&B. Central location for explaining the Isle of Wight. Lee is a very friendly, helpful host and cooks a fabulous breakfast. We had the budget room and found it plenty big enough for our needs. It was clean and comfortable. Our dog also enjoyed her stay.

Had a lovely stay here. Lee was very welcoming and cooked us an amazing full English breakfast. The apartment was spacious, well equipped and we had a lovely sea view. Not far from the centre with all the restaurants and bars. Would highly recommend

Easy accessible by public transport as bus stop very close by. Lee was outside waiting to greet us with a very warm welcome and upgraded us to one of the apartments with a lovely sea view. The accommodation was pristine throughout boasting quality carpets, fully equipped kitchen and cosy lounge area with a wall-mounted television, shower bath and cosy bedrooms. Our stay here was just blissful. Will be recommending and would love to stay here again! 10 out of 10! Breakfast was just delish. Should be very proud of yourselves :)

We stayed at the spinnaker apartment (2 bedroom flat) for two nights. Spacious and spotlessly clean with a great location if you want to stay in cowes. Quick walk down the hill and you are in the centre. The breakfast was amazing with plenty of choice and portions sizes were huge! Lee was welcoming and made our stay enjoyable!! Highly recommend!
