About the hotel

The Fountain Hotel Cowes Isle of Wight is located on the Quay in Cowes Isle of Wight. Located in West Cowes only a step off the ferry terminal. The Fountain Hotel was built in 1771 as the Golden Fleece and had another inn, the Dolphin, right next door.

An early visitor was the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, who stayed with his entourage preparatory to departing after a state visit in 1789. As both the headquarters and the terminus of the ferry company, the Fountain Hotel quickly became Cowes' premier inn, entertaining such dignitaries as King Charles X of France and his family in 1830. Cowes comes alive in June each year for the Round the Island yacht race. Sit outside and enjoy the fun on our decked area. The summer continues to be a hive of activity with the highlight of Cowes Week Regatta during the first week of August. Today it is an ideal haven for yachting enthusiasts, business people and holiday makers and is an ideal all-year-round base from which to explore the Isle of Wight, with The Needles, Blackgang Chine and Queen Victoria's Osborne House. No car park.

friendly people, slow breakfast so it was cold and I was late

a real shame I went for the easy option as this was almost my only option when I booked and wish I had chosen one of the others.

why is it the same price for 1 person to stay in a double room than 2. I can't eat 2 breakfasts. i would think it over priced for such a small inconveniently arranged room even if there were 2. decor definitely didn't take it into that price bracket in my experience despite the location. yes it is v close to RedJet and v friendly people. how can you take ages to bring out a cold fried breakfast. all the floorboards on the landing seemed to creak so was awake from 6am. noisy night time neighbours in local pubs. reviews made it sound brilliant so booked it (despite the 1 night price) to get a good nights sleep and good early breakfast. fail on both. be aware they advertise well the earlier weekday breakfast times and didn't see anywhere that weekends are later - problem for me. tv seemed cheap and on its way out. I'm sure some people would think it quaint and convenient. my fault for choosing the place at the last minute.
