Close to ferry terminal and walking distance to Osborne house made life very easy. Great hosts with lovely breakfast - perfect runny poached eggs and clean accommodation. We were given an upgrade on arrival so had a 4 poster bed and the room was large but cosy. We will definitely return.

The welcome was excellent, the rooms are very spacious and immaculately clean, there is a great choice for breakfast. We have now visited 4 years in a row and cannot fault this b&b.
