If we cancel or make any major change to your booking you will be free to a) accept the new holiday arrangement offered by us or b) cancel your holiday with us altogether and receive a full refund of all monies paid.


The hotel offers limited free of charge car parking spaces at the rear of the building at owners risk. If there are no spaces available, there is a large Isle of Wight Council owned car park 50 yards from the rear entrance of the Hotel. Tourist parking permits are available from the hotel reception and offer great value for money and unlimited parking in Council controlled parking areas Island wide. Unfortunately, we are unable to reserve car parking spaces.

Holiday Insurance:

We strongly advise that you should take out insurance to cover the cost of cancellation and also to cover other risks.

If you have a problem:

If you have a problem on your holiday, please bring it to the attention of the management immediately so that we can endeavour to resolve it as quickly as possible.
