We stayed at the Albert Cottage Hotel in East Cowes for two nights. The room was very comfortable with lovely 'antique' furniture, but it was dwarfed by the huge bathroom - complete with big balcony! The Bedroom had a tiny balcony too, but was virtually unaccessible behind the dressing table and certainly not big enough to sit on. Shame the...

We stayed here for two nights. You could easily imagine yourself back in Victorian Times in this really lovely Hotel set in beautiful grounds with really well maintained gardens. My partner has mobility issues, but nothing was too much trouble. We had a room on the ground floor very close to the entrance so he didn't have to walk far...

70 people enjoyed Sunday lunch in delightful surroundings. The gardens are lovely and the service was reasonable. Ths hotel is used as a training ground for staff and they did well as some had ferries to catch. The food was good too.

This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel, although we have eaten as non-residents in the restaurant several times. Upon arrival, if was difficult to ascertain where the reception area was, as there were no obvious signs, but having wandered around searching for a while someone eventually appeared from a back office and checked us in. The...

Stayed for 2 nights and the service from start to finish was first class. Rooms tastefully decorated in keeping with the tradition of the hotel. Breakfast was plentiful and very enjoyable with great service. The grounds are stunning and well maintained. All in all a highly enjoyable visit. We will be returning.

Stayed here for 3 days in September whilst my partner was filming near by. The room was lovely if not a little dated, but clean and well equipped and quite. The food was really good both breakfast and dinner were fresh and plentiful and the services was truly wonderful. I wouldn't call this a Boutique hotel, but it was very...
