Very good”

The Fountain is in a great location,very easily accessed from Red Jet Terminal in the centre of Cowes. Unfortunately our room (No 14) was quite small and more suited as a single than a double. The staff were very friendly,helpful and welcoming.

Quaint old English Hotel in the heart of Cowes”

The Fountain Inn is the traditional quaint old English hotel situated in the heart of Cowes. 10 metre walk from the Red Funnel Fast ferry. The breakfast was good, with plenty of food servings. The pub was just what you would hope for, with all the character of old English. The bed and pillows were comfortable, but the padded headboard cushion was in GREAT need of cleaning. I would not want to view it under a UV light. The only window (sash without the sasch) in the room would not stay open, had to use the bin to keep it open for air. N.B. There is no aircon! We would however stay there again, such fun.

Great Hotel in great location”

Location, food, price

The Fountain in a perfect location right in the middle of Cowes. The rooms, although small, have everything you need. Ask for a room on the top floor at the back or side of the hotel, as the pub over the road can cause a little noise at throwing out time, if you are on a lower floor at the front. The food is excellent..both dinner and the included breakfast. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
