    Gorgeous and unique.

    i was looking for a place wirh some added luxury close to the main street of cowes. The Castle Suite was gorgeous and well presented. Hosts were extremely accommodating and nice. Very comfortable bed and super cosy. Pretty gardens, quite a unique stay compared to a standard hotel.

    Cleanliness is a concern

    Like the overall decoration. Nice and classic. Cleanliness needs to be better. Did have to clean the spa myself as there were dusts and insects in it. The toilet window with no blinds. Wasn't expecting that. Shower room window cannot be closed and the flynet was full of dusts. However, I did like the spacious shower room with two shower heads to allow more than one person in there.

    This property is clean and is in a good location, easy walking distance to beach and town. The room is okay but is expensive for what it is.

    Delightful quirky accommodation

    Good welcome by Ginnie who showed us to the Garden Room. The Garden Room is a separate suite at the bottom of the garden, extremely quirky, charming and comfortable. Enjoy the cool indoor/outdoor shower. Very comfortable bed and lovely Jacuzzi bath for two people.

    Great little place. Upstairs is very noisy when people walk around.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Pros: Friendly, welcoming hosts. Beautiful, artistic decor. Cosy apartment. Good location - very close to restaurants and the beach. Cons: Some of the window coverings let in sunlight and there was no blind at all on the toilet window. My husband had a bad allergic reaction to the bedding (itchy skin, streaming sinuses, asthma) and ended up sleeping on the couch - very disappointing. We've never had this problem at other places we've stayed.

    Such a wonderful place. Jenni was lovely and welcoming on arrival. Our room was perfect. We loved the way it was set out. Huge shower in the bathroom and a great spa on the balcony. The room itself was cozy and comfortable. It's such a unique place. Perfect location to get us the the beach and restaurants within a few minutes. Highly recommend it. So much better than an average hotel stay.
