Everything was amazing, especially the hot tub! Our BBQ didn't work and no one was available to assist us with that, but this didn't cloud our holiday at all. Amazing Cottage, amazing value!

The cottage was absolute first class and very clean. Apart from when you have windows and doors open you really cannot hear the neighbours at all!

We were very impressed with the cottage and the hot tub. It was clean and tidy and we appreciated the little thoughtful touches including a pint of milk and a few edibles (bread, butter, biscuits).

Accommodation type: Alum Cottage
My only criticism was that there were ants in the lounge but that is difficult to stop in summer months. Other than that it was brilliant - clean, well furnished, kitchen had everything in it required and more, and the garden was so pretty and well tended. In the main bedroom there was a side table missing which was a shame but not a major problem. I can only say that for the price it was amazing.
Fab cottage and hot tub, very clean, could do with a little bit of updating and the hot tub area felt a little bit functional, a few flowers / flags/ lanterns would have made a big difference, but all small things, staff really helpful and cottage nice and spacious!
Amazing place and fantastic location.
Excellent would definitely come back.
Superb second visit to Colwell Bay. We made very good use of the pool and enjoyed the beach being just a short stroll away. This is a really peaceful site, and staff are so friendly and welcoming. We hope to return later in the year.
We stayed at the Cowell bay from Thursday 8th May - Monday 12th May. Absolutely brilliant! We arrived at 1ish, way before the check in time of 4 and Liam, (brilliant guy) made sure my wife and 2 children were in by 2! Fantastic service. Nothing ever too much. Great free use of all the facilities including tennis rackets and balls. No timings for tennis, just first come but everyone used it as it should have been used. Awesome bar/cafe/restaurant called the captain's club which is a 5 minute walk from the bay. Amazing views, lovely service and really well priced! Our cottage was great. The children loved coming from the pool and 'diving' into the hot tub. The hot tub definitely made it that little bit special. The only negative I would say is that the pillows were bad! That is, literally the only thing I can fault but the other 3 of my party would disagree! Highly recommended. Also, the Isle of Wight is stunning and Colwell Bay offers a great base to explore the island. Thanks for a great break.
all I can say is absolutely fantastic a class all the way
Enjoyed it very much we used the buses and the beach was fabulous and in walking distance
We had such a lovely time. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We will be back. Thank you!
We would love to go back to colwell bay but prices for next year prevent us from booking. On a previous visit in 2015, we got 10% off our next visit..
Lovely relaxing holiday a great place to stay and explore the island. Loved the hot tub
