We stayed at Marine Parade for 3 nights. It is in a great location. If you forget the kids toothbrushes, no problem, you can pretty much lean out the window to the shops! Everything was very clean, everything worked and the beds were comfortable. A...More

Great being right on the high street! Easy access to everything - shops eateries etc. We were surprised by the "tricky " stairs as no mention was made of these - but it was all fine . One concern was that there were no "chain-breakers"...More

About the neighbourhood
Separated by the River Medina and linked by a chain ferry, the Isle of Wights most northerly towns of Cowes and East Cowes are steeped in maritime heritage. Cowes is a Mecca for yachtsmen and hosts many national and international events. During the sailing season the waterfront is a kaleidoscope of colourful sails, whose focal point is the Royal Yacht Squadron. It is a historical old town, with a narrow high street, filled with a wonderful array of clothing and interior shops, restaurants and pubs which often reflect the marine environment. There is a lovely parade and beach front where you can amble along and enjoy watching the action on the water. East Cowes is the terminus of the car and passenger ferry from Southampton. The town has a large marina, small shops, restaurants and a seafr...
Getting around
Cowes has good transport links - the Red Jet passenger ferry from Southampton arrives in the centre of town. There are good bus links from the centre of town - 1 min from our front door ! It is also easy to hire a car with Enterprise car club, or Top Gear. Bikes are also available there to hire.
