“Smashing!”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Pros
Location is great. Right in the middle of town with great restaurants and bars
Super traditional little pub directly across the street with lots going on
Apartment is excellent. Spacious, clean and homely
Lots of kitchen equipment
No traffic noise as the street outside is only for pedestrians
Nice little patio outside the living room

Cons
Apartment up on 1st floor accessed by metal staircase. Could be a problem if you're not steady on your feet !
We couldn't get wifi at all. If you're relying on it for work it could be a problem
Apartment is above a popular coffee shop/bar. It's lovely but does create quite a bit of noise from 8 am till 12 at night. You tend to get used to it as its 'safe noise' but I would recommend earplugs if you need to get to sleep early

“Great Flat in Brilliant Location”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We booked the flat for a week so that we could spend a few days touring around the beautiful Isle of Wight on our motorbike before spending the weekend at the festival. Graham gave good efficient info and service before during and after our trip. The flat was spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need including a washer/dryer which came in handy when we got soaked at the festival one night! The bathroom is newly tiled and the furniture is all good quality. The outside patio is a real bonus and we ate most of our meals out there. The flat is up a flight of out door steps so would not be suitable if you have mobility problems. It is located above the fantastic Coast Bar & restaurant which we frequented quite a lot! You do get some noise from the bar but it did not bother us - we found it added to the holiday atmosphere of the place. Cowes is a brilliant little town with all the shops you could want on your doorstep. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to any of my friends.

Great set in the middle of Cowes everything within A couple of minutes walk .The best restaurant in Cowes. Only a few seconds away. Great apartment very comfortable supplied with everything even down to umbrellas. & a lap top . unusually for a first floor apartment it has a very large outside space acccesable from the lounge. With a table with sunshade and chairs.
