Probably one of the cheapest stays (~AUD 85) we had in Australia so far, and what a great value we got! Clean room, with a very comfortable bed, spa, and small little kitchen with teas & biscuits. You will get parking right outside the room and has a very easy check-in process. It's around 1km away from the city, but you can still walk it if weather permits. Definitely coming back again if we are ever visiting the island.

Stayed 3 nights from 28th to the 30th. This was our 2nd time staying at this place. Great location. A relaxing 10 mins walk to the Cowes town centre. The owners were very attentive to all our needs and very co operative and friendly. The room was clean and well maintained. Definitely will be back for the 3rd time.

Stayed here last weekend and, once again, had an enjoyable and relaxing couple of nights. Manager Hope was warm and inviting and nothing was too much trouble, even going out of her way to print a document we needed but had forgotten to bring. The room was very clean and tidy with some updates in place despite a particularly challenging lead up to the holiday season. We keep coming back due to excellent trailer parking, the proximity to the restaurants and the quiet atmosphere. Thanks again Hope and we’ll see you again next year.

Stayed for two nights as our first trip after lockdown. The room was spacious and spotless. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. Some nice little touches like chocolates, biscuits and bottled water were well appreciated. The motel was just the right distance from the centre of Cowes. Far enough away to escape the noise and hustle, but close enough to walk into town and back again. Will return on our next trip to Cowes.

We booked a cheaper room and were very happy with it. Small extras like free water 2 chocolate bars and a full packet of biscuits were appreciated. The bed was really comfortable. The people in charge were so friendly and obliging. Thank you for recommending the restaurant in Rhyll. It was great.
