Wonderful and magical place to stay which we hope to return to.
A magical place to stay because of having the grounds to oneself after the gates close to the public. All the staff I met, the housekeeper, security and guides were all charming. Security made me feel very welcome on my return 'after hours'.
The property is superb. Well furnished, clean, tidy and beautifully decorated. Whilst I am loathe to say it, as everyone will want to go, the location within the grounds of Osborne House, with areas to run and exercise and a private beach is simply stunning. We are definitely coming back. The Housekeeper couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating.
Wonderful location, amazing English Heritage team. It was my partner’s birthday, and she loves history and especially Queen Victoria/Prince Albert. So she was blown away with the venue, its location, its decor, and the grounds!!
