Well located, very clean, excellent value for money and very friendly staff. I met family offsite for breakfast so cannot comment on the breakfast provided as part of my stay.

Convenient base for exploring Isle of Wight
Stayed in two Premium rooms with my wife and parents. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. On top floor with no lift which was fine for us but bear in mind if you lack mobility. Located under a mile from the Southampton ferry and has free parking.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service
Fire alarm works.
Good points.. Nice ale. Bad points.. Check in says from 12:30 - place doesn't open until 15:00. No food served after breakfast - nowhere to eat within walking distance. Fire alarm went off at 23:00 until 1:30am. No fire plan or layout map on show, fire reset button behind bar so unaccessible. Breakfast was greasy.
