Good location and friendly staff but the room we had was in need of some TLC. Chips to paint on the walls, a stained toilet snd the bed had been broken in the past. It was held together with random planks of wood and was incredibly loud.

This hotel is in a great location in the centre of the town. Some noise from outside but not too bad. No onsite parking but a couple of payable carparks nearby. The room was very big, a bit dated but very clean. It had tea, coffee & a nice touch of a biscuit too! The staff were all very very nice, friendly & helpful. The breakfast was lovely & plentiful. Overall a nice place to stay.

The staff at the Fountain were all very good. They were dealing with all the rules and regs very professionally. The rooms are very tired and do need a refresh. I think this gives the impression that the rooms aren't particularly clean. You can't beat the location.

The decor in desparate need of updating, pictures, furniture, bed, bathroom grim toilet stained, condensation streaked paper & stained tiles. Hairdryer, shampoo etc would be good. Partner upset he hadnt got a remote control for tv. Breakfast - good, evening meal value for money. However customer service excellent, staff are all super. Car park for overnight stay in Cowes difficult.
