Quiet, clean , friendly family ran business, close to the town centre & a stroll to the esplanade. The motel is in a great part of Cowes, close to the esplanade, shops, cafes & restaurants. Friendly, down to earth owners. Reasonably priced for clean & quiet location.

Had a great room, possibly upgraded as it had a spa bath and a good sized bed. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Located in a side road and about a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants. Nice firm bed and good sized TV. Would recommend.

Reviewed 5 March 2016 via mobile

My wife and I spent a very pleasant night here on a quick trip to the island. The rates are very reasonable and include breakfast and wi-fi. Room was large, well appointed and very clean. The motel is within easy walking distance on flat ground to the centre of Cowes and the beach is 200 metres away. Highly recommend
