Would love to give this little gem more stars. Hosts friendly and welcoming and you really won't find better views over the harbour. Lovely typical cooked English breakfast provided plus cereals, juice and tea / coffee in the morning. Accommodation was as we expected given the age and history of the boat. Quirky, lots of little steps to trip you,...

The Isle of Wight is quirky. Stuck in some weird time warp mis match between the 1950's and the 1980's. The hotels are no different. Even those who have really tried to bcome more contemporary are still creaky, badly painted and will have at least one curio in the garden. So the Xoron cuts out any pretence of sophistication and...

I was taken away for a romantic surprise weekend away by my husband and was blown away by our stay on Xoron. From the moment we stepped aboard the converted WWII converted gunboat we were made to feel completely relaxed and at home by Wendy. The whole of the upper deck is set out as a lounge/breakfast room for visitors...

I stayed there on the 27th May - Fantastic experience - brilliantly quirky with also serious boat related museum exhibits on board. Not just somewhere to stay but so interesting. Wish I could have spent a little longer but I arrived late and had to get up at 5.00 am to finish my rowing adventure round the Island. A good...

This is a converted WWII Motor Gun Boat. Paul and Wendy have made this into a comfortable and fascinating place to stay and are excellent hosts. We would definitely stay there again. The view over the harbour is breath-taking.
