Please note: Our establishment is not suitable for individuals with walking difficulties or disabilities. Our building features multiple sets of stairs and steps, which are unavoidable due to its cliffside construction, and we do not have a generic ground floor level. Regrettably, we do not have a lift, and therefore, we are not wheelchair accessible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Notice of Ongoing Hotel Improvements: Please be advised that our hotel is currently undergoing improvements. While we do not anticipate any disruption to your stay, we want to inform you before your arrival.

The hotel exudes the charm of Victorian residential architecture, meticulously restored to its former glory following a four-year closure and a thorough renovation under new ownership in 2021. Retaining many original features, it offers a seamless blend of classic Victorian elegance and modern comforts, providing guests with an authentic experience of an English seaside resort and its unique microclimate.

Indulge in a haven of peace and serenity as we strive to ensure your stay on the historic Isle of Wight is nothing short of blissful. Simply arrive, take a deep breath, and let us take care of the rest.

Our family-operated hotel pays homage to the heritage of the Duke of Wellington and Scotland, promising to meet your every expectation and offer a rejuvenating retreat you'll yearn to revisit. Complete with a breath-taking panoramic terrace, adorned with pristine white fencing and sumptuous outdoor seating, alongside our intimate bar, inviting breakfast dining room, and a cosy open fire, every corner exudes warmth and hospitality.

To enhance your experience, we offer discounted ferry rates for all guests, year-round. Book directly with us and indulge in a complimentary glass of prosecco upon arrival, along with complimentary room upgrades whenever possible. Your journey to relaxation and rejuvenation begins here.
