This is an elegant, luxurious small hotel with charming style and a sense of history dating from the 1870s.
Coming from the hustle and bustle of Cowes, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped into another world at Glen Isla House. The minute you turn into the driveway, the property’s quiet, peaceful ambiance takes over. Set over two acres of beautiful heritage gardens full of hidden corners and natural wonders, such as the 100-year-old oak trees, this small hotel has irresistible, elegant charm and an authentic sense of history that dates all the way back to the 1870s.
Guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to bunking down. Choose between the warm, romantic old-world allure of the Anderson Heritage Suite, a cottage once part of the original homestead with a four-poster king-size bed, gas log fire and spa bath, or any of the Classic Rooms, all beautifully furnished with traditional, individual style. Each room is also provided with luxury toiletries. Guests have round-the-clock access to the comfortable lounge and dining areas, and your hosts pride themselves on the restaurant-quality breakfasts provided for in-house guests. But if you prefer to self-cater, there is also the secluded two bedroom Gate Cottage.
Just around the corner from the main part of Cowes and only 100 metres from the beach, Glen Isla House is the perfect base to explore the island’s attractions or simply relax in luxury. If you’re looking for a private, refined place to stay, Glen Isla House won’t disappoint.
