This was a cycle trip raising money by visiting all the Lifeboat Stations in GB, and it rained all day. The rooms were warm and everything got dry. The breakfast in the cafe below was excellent. Very friendly and helpful people. One of the cyclists left some cash in the room, and the owner transferred the money to my bank account. He also donated to the RNLI.
What a lovely reception, we had been given the family room downstairs, the room was very clean, so nice to smell freshly laundered bedding...and nothing was too much. It over looked part of the high street and to the left of the property was a quaint walk to the sea...so yes a hop skip and a plop into the water that close! I was able to book in early, and also go to his coffee shop below for a bite to eat. The property is very much a traditional alternative old style, but he was having the property redecorated while we were there, some would say it would need modernisation, but it is a listed buying and sometimes seeing the charm of these old buildings to the stark modern rooms is lovely... so hopefully our next visit we will see the difference. We even got a thank you for staying text, when we left the next morning.…
We stayed at Union pub next door and breakfast was served in this cafe. What a lovely welcome from the lady behind the counter. We ordered the full English but our daughter asked for a sausage doorstep sandwich. Nothing was too much trouble and can’t wait to go back this weekend for another brilliant breakfast.
I visited this cafe on several occasions last week when in the area working for breakfast and a cuppa. The food was well cooked, plentiful, good value and i loved the fun atmosphere here, all complimented by all the interesting things displayed and the two helpful. friendly and professional ladies working there. All in All a lovely experience and the reason we kept returning. It has been renamed " A Place to Eat", Many Thanks ladies.
7 of us stayed here for one night on a golf trip. It’s ideally situated in the middle of Cowes with a nice little pub next door. Rooms are very basic but were clean and were ideal for what we needed. Staff were friendly. Not a place I would come on holiday to but if you are looking for 1 or 2 nights no frills budget accommodation in Cowes then this place may be OK.
Simply it's not very nice. Staff are fine but it's not cheap and the food is distinctly average, flacid chips, grey overcooked peas etc. It's not that cheap either. Popular with old people which some would say should have been a warning sign. Won't be going again. That's for sure.
Stopped off our coastal walk for a quick lunch. Ye olde worldy cafe with a traditional menu. Model trains whizzing round the wall above our heads. Lovely touch for the dads and children. Egg and bacon bap with a mug of tea hit the spot. Coffee and walnut cake was so nice its a must try. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere too.
One night stay before walking the costal path, keys left in pub next door, room good. Breakfast from attached cafe which had a huge choice and was good . For what I needed it was ideal and only 2 or 3 minutes from the ferry . I will without any doubt use it again
We should have turned on our heels on entering this restaurant for lunch but I had my elderly disabled parents with me and there was a disabled parking bay outside so it was convenient. For starters it was carpeted - who carpets a restaurant? The carpet was extremely filthy. The food was OKish but when we visited the toilets the area we passed through was quite disgustingly dirty. There were old cooking appliances, dirty highchairs and everything was just dreadful. This place needs a visit from the Health & Hygiene inspector.
I would have given two stars but the owner let us use a room to store our bikes overnight which was appreciated. Without that we would not have stayed. This is a hostel and looks like somewhere ferry workers might stay. Beyond basic really, old mismatching furniture which I personally don't care about but terrible sagging matresses which are piled up rather than having one. Our room had four single beds, a small fridge and kettle but no running water. Bathroom on the landing. There was a container with tea bags etc but one of the milk sachets had split so it was all spoilt.totally lacks any comforts at all including bedside lights which can be very cheap. Bathroom used as a store room but shower not bad. It was hard to believe any thing in the room has ever been cleaned. Breakfast downstairs in the tea room, average. Central location good, if you seek even a very basic comfort level avoid.…
