A very relaxing weekendWe had a really enjoyable stay at the hotel but next time will definitely have a room with a sea view and less stairs to climb!! The staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. If you want a relaxing weekend away I would recommend it.

30 seconds to Red JetPerfectly fine place to stay over for a day or two - Room 1 is BIG and is comfy enough to stay longer. Be aware - it's a pub with rooms in the middle of Cowes, so it's not the place for a tranquil, away from it all break.

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight may be relatively small, but it ticks a surprising number of boxes for the discerning United Kingdom holidaymaker. With a wealth of spectacular beaches and unspoiled countryside, lovers of natural beauty are satisfied. The diverse selection of family attractions, from dinosaur trails to zoos, is great for families. But what makes the island a unique attraction for so many is its rich - and much celebrated - history. To complete the experience, the island is home to a number of historic hotels.

Traditional Inns on the Isle of Wight

In coastal southern England, there are few sights as enchanting as that of a traditional local pub or inn. The town of Yarmouth in the north of the island is home to a quintessentially English inn at The Bugle. Yarmouth's cobbled streets are lined with historic buildings, from quaint cottages to grand, double-front Georgian town houses. The Bugle Coaching Inn is right on the town's central square. In addition to a mouth-watering in-house menu, guests can also enjoy free WiFi access, and a beautifully kept garden.

Victorian Grandeur in Shanklin

Many of the United Kingdom's finest seaside resorts are Victorian, as are the best historic hotels on the Isle of Wight. The Belmont B&B occupies a stunning and well turned out Victorian home, which was actually built originally to serve as a gentleman's residence.

The building at The Belmont may be historic, but the facilities are as up-to-date as you can imagine. The garden collects ample sun in the summer months, and is centred around an attractive swimming pool, lined with loungers. There's a rejuvenating therapy cabin and a well-stocked bar.

Exploring the Island's Past

The history of the Isle of Wight is visible well beyond its many stunning hotels. Some of the island's most popular attractions detail the life of dinosaurs on the island, exhibiting the Isle of Wight's plentiful fossil collection. In fact, there are a lot of dinosaur fossils still to be found on the beaches.

Elsewhere on the island, visitors can peruse the spectacular Brading Roman Villa. Excavated some time ago, many of the building's original mosaics are on display. There's also an informative museum as part of the site.
