If you’re heading to the Isle of Wight, our hotel in Newport is the place to stay, with its peaceful riverside location in the heart of this historic town. Newport centres on two elegant squares surrounded by Georgian and Victorian buildings, just a few streets from the quay. There’s lots to see and do, both in Newport and across the island, from Carisbrooke Castle and Needles Park to Cowes and Osborne House.
