Get ready for a relaxing stay

A gorgeous Georgian façade and enviable location along Cowes' waterfront gives The Fountain Inn stacks of appeal. The building dates back to the 1700s and you'll spot heaps of period charm in both its restaurant and 20 beautifully appointed rooms. Each one features its own stylish en-suite, a flat-screen TV to keep you up to date with your favourite shows, and tea and coffee-making facilities to help kickstart your days.

Travelling to the Isle of Wight with your four-legged friend? The Fountain Inn is happy to accommodate well-behaved dogs - just make sure you pre-book in advance by calling 0345 608 6040 as there are limited dog-friendly rooms. The Fountain Inn additionally offers free Wi-Fi to help you stay connected, plus it's in a handy location near the ferry terminal so you can arrive as a foot passenger or by car.

As well as being a great jumping-off point for exploring the rest of the island, Cowes is a destination in its own right. Pretty Cowes Seafront is less than a mile from the hotel and boasts shops, dining venues, and stunning Solent vistas. Cowes is a famous sailing hub, with its annual regatta in August attracting hundreds of visitors. You'll also uncover many historical attractions, from the Cowes Maritime Museum to nearby Osbourne House - the much-loved holiday home of Queen Victoria.

Delicious harbourside dining

Traditional decor and a hearty menu of freshly cooked pub classics makes The Fountain Inn's restaurant a lovely place to dine. On brighter days, why not step outside to eat alfresco on the terrace overlooking the harbour? Don't forget about breakfast either. Hotel guests can enjoy a fantastic spread, whether you're craving a Full English or a lighter continental breakfast.
