Staff very friendly and helpful
Cold tap was broken, but not a problem
Pretty much everything. Staff were lovely, room was great size, clean, good toiletries, great breakfast, perfect location .....all great!
Only comment was that I wasn't told beforehand there was a charge for the dog. Not a problem at all but just would have been good to have known before the bill was handed over at the end.
Very clean, friendly staff, excellent food.
Our room was at the front of the building, directly under the street light left on all night. As there was no blackout lining on the new windows, our room was bathed in light during the night which made sleeping difficult.
Staff were very friendly and the room was recently refurbished. Decent sized mugs for morning tea. Nice white linen and duvets are always a welcome site!
The shower was good and hot but the shower head was a bit tricky to contain the water but I got the hang of it on shower 2.
The bed was really comfy, the location you couldn't ask for better. Bar staff very friendly and could have a late breakfast and car parking great, free until 10 am on the seafront..
In the bathroom of room 1 there needs to be a shelf under the mirror to put your toothbrush etc...Small cherry tomatoes not ideal for breakfast as are likely to burst all over you. Leaky teapots, dog barking at you every time you enter your bedroom not so good If scared of dogs.
Great central location, good clean and comfortable room, nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Good value for money and would stay again.
The room was spacious with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was freshly cooked
Sometimes a little noisy as the pub was busy
location excellent. staff friendly and helpful.
weather (but it was November!)
The atmosphere Location
Very good atmosphere, great breakfast, facilities, staff. Very pleasant stay.
Comfy bed, quiet room and really nicely decorated. The staff are friendly, and the pub downstairs is lovely.
The bathroom door in room 1 is a struggle to shut and coffee could be better (stronger) in the morning, but these are minor niggles in what was a lovely stay.
I booked the Union Inn for a weekend away with my partner. On arrival we were greated by the friendly bar staff, who showed us to our room and made us feel welcome. The hotel/pub is perfectly located for Cowes with quick access to the sea front, bars and restaurants. Some reports mention noise from the pub below, but during the weekend we were not disturbed once (we stayed in Room 4) - in fact we slept so well that we missed breakfast both mornings! The rooms were clean and tidy with a boutique feel - absolutely perfect for a weekend stay!
Location was very good and lots of character to the pub and property.
Room was quite small. A lot smaller than it looked on the picture! The bed wasn't very comfortable. As the rooms are part of a pub, there was a lot of noise until 1am where people were talking outside and smoking. The later it got the louder the talking got! Went away to try and catch up on sleep and it didn't happen!
location,breakfast and bar
Size of the room. Mess on landing. Broken window. Generally run down. Over priced
We loved our stay in Isle of Wight.. Accommodation was comfortable as far as bed was concerned.. The staff were lovely and the food was amazing...
We had a pub sign outside our bedroom window with a light over it. Hence the room was constant daylight at night, the noice was unbearable until around 2.30am then silence.hate to complain as we really enjoyed our stay .
Comfort and cosy atmosphere.
Pretty room with good supply of teas and coffee and toiletries. Very quaint, it suited us as we are homesick ex patriots!
Wobbly bed. Stairs could be a problem for people with wobbly legs.
The location is excellent.Our room was rather small but cosy
The first 2 days of our stay the breakfast was very salty the 3rd day it was very good so maybe a different chef.
My friends and I booked the last room on the island for the August bank holiday. We didn't pick this place and didn't really have any expectations. We showed up dead on check in time. The staff were very friendly and knew who we were when we arrived. The room took a further half an hour or so to get ready but we were happy to grab a cup of tea in the bar. The room was a good size and the beds were so comfortable. We were on the top floor so the pub noise on the Friday night did not bother us. We checked out on the Saturday am and left our bags with them. We were doing a charity event so did not need the room that night. We did however need to stay on the Sunday too. We phoned early on the Sunday, 8am, and asked if we could check in early and they were so accommodating. The staff said as soon as someone had checked out at 11 they would clean that room and ring us. They did this before 11 and we were in the comfy beds again in no time. I would also like to say in response to other reviews, yes there is some noise from the bar but it is not open all hours. If you like to be asleep very early then maybe ask for a top floor room, otherwise don't elect to stay above a pub on a weekend. If you don't mind going to bed at eleven then enjoy a quaint pub in the heart of town with brilliant staff and great breakfast options.
The shower in the first room wasn't fantastic. The second shower home rev was great. I think people's experience does depend on the rooms they are in. Another com was that we went down for dinner at 8pm on the Sunday to which we were told they only serve till seven. This would have been useful to know at check in.
Staff were very helpful kind and polite
The fact that our beds were not re made during the four days we were there
room was fine and young girl in morning v good trying to cope with breakfast and checkouts on her own
very noisy until 2 30am never known anything so bad avoid room 5 above front door also breakfast tables felt grimy
Jody was brilliant.. Managed to laugh and joke even though she was always busy. Even at breakfast she was still smiling! would most definitely stay there again.
The rowdiness outside after we went to bed.... Had to shut the windows.
Friendly staff location was perfect Nice old world pub
Our evening meal was so bad we couldn't eat it. I would not have served it up at home and it was only a burger. Even the bar staff admitted the chips were dreadful.
Lovely plump pillows,crisp sheets and comfy bed
Perhaps more information on setting t.v up
The location was amazing. The rooms cute with all the amenities you need. I love that you could walk into town or to the sea. Breakfast was yummy with many choices.
