Outstanding
This guest house was fantastic, the owners had thought of everything, from the moment we arrived, everything was seamless, we cannot recommend this enough, perfect location with only a 5 minute walk into the little cobbled streets of Cowes of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops, close enough to walk it but far enough that it was super quiet.

Everything about our stay was excellent. Contactless check in worked really well, the hotel was spotlessly clean as was our room and very comfy. The breakfast was delicious - well cooked, high quality ingredients. It can’t be easy running a B&B under these conditions but the guys at the Caledon have it nailed and I would highly recommend for a comfortable, safe and well situated stay in Cowes.
