All is organized for savings... Not yours but their ones. Breakfast is piece by piece counted and room cold when you arrive and soap for one person in a 4-room accommodation. Despite this room is clean.

Quiet, clean , friendly family ran business, close to the town centre & a stroll to the esplanade. The motel is in a great part of Cowes, close to the esplanade, shops, cafes & restaurants. Friendly, down to earth owners. Reasonably priced for clean & quiet location.

Had a great room, possibly upgraded as it had a spa bath and a good sized bed. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Located in a side road and about a 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants. Nice firm bed and good sized TV. Would recommend.
