The Waves Apartments
Ranked #4 of 11 Hotels in Cowes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2017 via mobile

The Waves are centrally located so you can park and walk to the beach; supermarkets or main street shopping or cafe's.

The apartments are clean, well appointed and have everything you need for a few nights away from home. If you don't have it, the really friendly reception staff will be able to help you. Iron and ironing board, DVD player, microwave oven, stove, fridge,  kettle, laundry downstairs. We had a spa bath which we enjoyed and there was plenty of hot water.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would  easily return.

We recently stayed at The Waves and would recommend for a family holiday, despite the slightly strange configuration of the rooms! The main room was great as was the very modern and clean bathroom with spa bath. The location is addition single beds in the kitchenette would be inconvenient if young children staying but worked ok for us. Beds slightly hard but otherwise a great stay in a prime location.

Good location, clean rooms, functional kitchen. The heater/acond was too loud though. The lady at the front desk staff was really friendly and warm. From the time she picked up our call to the time we checked out. We had a lovely time.

First impression is the place is clean and well maintained / professionally run with friendly and helpful staff.

We had a family executive suite which had a corner Jacuzzi in it, nice balcony with native shrubs and trees in the gardens, which attracted the colourful native parrots which was nice to wake up too.

The room was an excellent size.

Only knock was that the hot water runs out after you fill the jacuzzi, meaning the shower after needs to wait.

No Foxtel, however we didnt spend a lot of time in the room as there is a lot to do on the Island.

Its located across from a nice public playground which is good for kids.

We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Any are okay, the whole set up is pretty good, if your first time to the island, the Sea views would...
