    I am ever so sorry. We hiked around the island so have no idea of transport facilities on the island. Closest ferry would be Portsmouth - Ryde I guess.

    Sorry about the confusion. This means that we are able to check guests in one hour before closing. However the guests recieve a front door key, which allows them to access and leave the hotel at any time. Regards, Suzie
