Liked: The room was large, the view was stunning. Breakfast was served in a beautiful Victorian dining room overlooking the Solent, and was exceptionally good, with local smoked fish as an option. The staff were wonderfully knowledgeable about the area and the history of the island.

A friendly hotel that's full...
Liked: We booked here because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Have been to the Isle of Wight before but not stayed in Cowes. The welcome in Villa Rothsay is amazing, friendly but all the extra rules to do with Covid-19 were clearly explained. Very comfortable room with amazing views over the Solent. At breakfast, you order everything from the menu (even juice and cereals) and it's then brought to you at your table. Nothing was too much trouble. What was particularly good was that every day we got exactly what we ordered, including full English with or without mushrooms, beans and so on. Eggs Benedict were a particular favourite! Our hostess always came along to ask us how we were getting on and check if we had everything we needed. The breakfast rooms also overlook the garden and the Solent.
Disliked: Nothing really. If you need to park in the lower car park, it's a bit of a hike back up the hill! The top car park has an adverse camber that you need to be aware of or it's easy to scrape the bottom of your bumper.

Liked: Period property lots of features
Disliked: Dated and run down needs a good half a million spent on it to bring it to the standard I would expect on this price of hotel

Definitely the best place to...
Liked: Wonderful views, fantastic atmosphere, Margaret and her staff very friendly and helpful, great location, superb breakfasts and very comfortable room. Just the perfect place to stay for our 5 day break in the IoW.
Disliked: Heating system somewhat erratic, veering from from no heat at all in our room to full sauna. Electric heater immediately provided when we were too cold, easy to turn radiators off when we were too hot. Joys of a Victorian house!

Exquisite place, amazing views and...
Liked: It is a very stylish, old-fashioned hotel. The owner and staff are very friendly. They do everything they can to make your stay very pleasant.
We enjoyed the breakfast on the patio, with a wonderful view. The variety of food offered was amazing, everything very fresh and delicious.
I would definitely recommend Villa Rothsay

Liked: We loved everything about Villa Rothsay. Great location - easy walk into Cowes. Easy parking. We had a lovely big room in the roof with a balcony with wonderful views over the Solent. Room was well equipped with separate seating area, lots of wardrobe space, Smart TV and spacious bathroom with big walk in shower and complimentary toiletries. Breakfast was lovely - lots of choice, good quality and great service. Very Covid safe. Staff were great especially Margaret. Unfortunately on day 2 of our holiday I had a bad accident and ended up in hospital with a broken neck. Margaret was amazing and found a room for my partner to stay in as long as he needed and she was so helpful and supportive throughout. We couldn't be more grateful. Thankyou. We are hoping to return to the Isle of Wight next year and will definitely stay at Villa Rothsay again.
