4/10 Fair

Not worth what we paid at all.
To be honest the facilities were pretty horrible. Our room had cobwebs all over it, spiders in the corners. The best part was probably the shower pressure. The facilities outside were even worse. Rusting outdoor settings with sharp edges not child friendly. Pool water dirty and heaps of leaves and junk on the bottom. Lounge chairs were all dirty and covered in spiders and cobwebs. For the end of summer I expected this place to be clean and up to date but it looked unsafe, old and tired. Very unloved. Bedding was very lumpy and old too. Sorry, I wish I could give it more but shower pressure and location was the best part of this trip,

4/10 Fair

Soooo disappointed at this accomodation. I’ve stayed here many years ago (the 90s) and nothing much had changed it been updated. The outdoor areas are messy and dirty, Untired and over grown. A good power wash and a Gardener would definitely be recommended The indoor areas are tidy but extremely tired, run down and in need of replacement. Beds were not commercial grade, doonas were dirty, walls also dirty. In need of a paint to say the least. Very over priced for what we got.

The location is amazing! One street away from Cowes main beach and Jetty. Down the road from Thompson Ave and the main strip of shops. There were a few cobwebs in the room but otherwise they were clean. The main negative I would have is that the walls are thin and we had some loud neighbours for one night. Saying that I would stay again!
