Was so excited to come across this beautiful property when trying to decide where to spend our second wedding anniversary. After checking the reviews I was sold that this was the place.
Upon arrival I went to reception to check in and was greeted by a lady who seemed less than impressed that I was here early, (even though I had requested a 1pm check in on my booking) I was told I was too early and check in wasn't until 2pm but it would be fine to go to the room now.
The 'Driftwood' was stunning, set back in a quiet courtyard, beautiful white louvres, hardwood floors, beautifully decorated, bright and open.
We had an amazing weekend and had came down to Cowes when the night market was on at the pier which was only a 2 minute walk away.
Would definitely recommend to anyone for a relaxing weekend away, just don't check in early!
