Great pub accomdation
Great place to stay, very good location. If coming from Southampton on the ferry, take the ‘floating bridge’ from the port, we discovered this as we were leaving! The Satnav route takes you on a 20 minute detour! Lovely dog friendly pub with helpful staff. Rooms need a little work but are fine. Nice breakfast too. Overall, considering the price, a great deal! Also, another point to be aware of for anyone with limited mobility, there are no lifts. We were put in the first room as you go up the stairs so wasn’t a massive issue for us.

Bad nights sleep
There was a very noisy extractor fan from the hotel going all night, the shower was either very hot with a good water flow or a poor water flow when cool enough to use. The bin in the room was not emptied from the previous occupant.

Red Jet pier very handy..
This is an old hotel with bar and waterside terrace at the back next to Red Jet so very convenient. Though re-painted and given a face lift there were poor aspects like no soap (waiting for dispensers to arrive!) but bath lotion and small shampoos. Carpet in my room had unsightly stains. Access was by steep stairs so my 2nd floor room was quiet but needed energy to reach! It was also over-hot the first night, but as the small window overlooked the noisy bar next door, heat was preferred over noise. Best bit was breakfast buffet and hot breakfasts to order with traditional and friendly service. Bar was lively at night with live music but I was warned about that on arrival. I went out. I didn't eat at the hotel but menu was reasonable and meal deals seemed very good value. A fair 2-3 star hotel.

Needs updating, but great location
Stayed 1 night, chose for location as arrived in Cowes late evening.Checked in at 10.30pm told we only had 10 minutes if we wanted a drink from the bar. The hotel is in serious need of upgrading, the room was shabby and the television was faulty. The thing I disliked most was the bathroom, stained shower curtain stained grouting, I decided against using the over bath shower!.The location is fantastic, the breakfast was good and the bed was comfortable. I would not choose to stay here again in it's current condition. I got the room at a reasonable rate but would not have wanted to pay more.

Great welcome
A fantastic friendly welcome by a great team. We arrived late off the ferry from Southampton but a quick call ensured our efficient and effective check in. The rooms/decor of the inn is a little dated but the room was mostly clean and was adequate for our needs. Great location to explore the island
