Guest Comments

An excellent weekend. Excellent, friendly, welcoming hosts. Hopefully we'll be back. - Epsom Old Salts
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Amazing. Love your B&B. - Geoff & Blanche, South Africa
It is very difficult to look at hotels websites and then pick a great one. I suspect it is pure luck! My sister-in-law and I wanted a short break on the Isle of Wight and found a real gem of a hotel I have travelled all over the world working for an airline and can honestly say I have never stayed in a better run hotel. I would recommend that you not only stay but also eat there as well -- Linda owns the hotel with her husband Des and she is an excellent cook and produces fantastic hot food. I cannot stress how good it is and they also seem to have thought of your every need. The room was so well equipped. I do hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did! - Helen
In terms of hospitality both Mr and Mrs Eastman created a natural and genuine welcome with commitment to guest welfare. Aspects such as genuine conversation all help to personalise the experience, creates a sense of inclusion. Service was to a very good standard throughout the stay. Bedrooms/bathrooms provide sound levels of comfort with a host of thoughtful extras, all reflecting the generosity which is a hallmark here. - AA Inspector
First of all thank you des and Linda for the way you both treated us. We visited for just one night and we didn't want to leave it was so relaxing and welcoming we was shown around the hotel and we was shown to our room witch I must say was exceptional the bar was very nice and its not that expensive I liked the pictures on the walls witch had a very cool theme I won't say what though Il leave that one to you to guess the food was outstanding and Linda had cooked it all from scratch The breakfast as well we will be going back and would highly recommend it to anyone. - Perri W

We were really pleased with everything about the hotel, from the friendly welcome, to the amazing room with a great sea view (we went for the top floor room as my girlfriend fell in love with the four poster bed). The breakfast the next morning was one of the best I've had at any hotel, great choice of buffet items, different breads, cereals, juices etc and the cooked breakfast was lovely. Highly recommended. - Matt M -
