Real reviews, from customers like you.
very good accommodation for the price in a lovely setting.
Great location,excellent value for money and look forward to going back.
Had a wonderful time. Very peaceful area, quiet. Lots of nice touches welcome milk biscuits etc. would stay again
Nice quiet location, nice crowded beach, nice small restaurant and bar, Nice!
Colwell Bay is in a convenient location, five minutes walk from the beach and twenty minutes from the local shops.
The accomodation was not spotlessly clean but clean enough for our purposes but the exteriors and the gardens are well maintained.
The welcome pack of bread,milk etc was very, well, welcoming!
The staff were friendly and the pool kept clean and at a lovely temperature.
If I were to visit the Isle of Wight again, I would consider staying at Colwell Bay as it was an easy base to explore the rest of the island.
if you are going, consider stopping at the IOWpearl centre to look at the pearl jewellry and enjoy lunch in the lovely cafe. Children loved Blackgang Chine and for adults drive to the Picnic area above Blackgang chine (free parking) and enjoy a walk along the coast path - once you are away from the noise of Blackgang , the views are lovely!
Lovely little cottage, well kept and good standard. Nice little touches such as milk, biscuits tea and sugar , kitchen towels etc left for us to use. Just a little whinge, could do with a dishwasher tablet or two included, but other than that, very good.
Great accommodation but not clean. We would stay again but would need to take cleaning materials!!
We had a lovely holiday here. Felt like a home from home. Very well eqipped. Nice to arrive to tea,coffee,bread and milk. It was hard to see the sign for colwell bay from the road. The hot tub was great. Could have been a little bit warmer. Over all a lovely holiday and we would return.
We loved loved loved our weekend at Colwell Bay, we had the Alum cottage and the facilities were brilliant, it had everything we needed the welcome pack was really handy when we arrived. I loved that the cottage had a teatowel, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid which are things I usually forget and then need to buy. The swimming pool is really great, so nice and warm and plenty of room even with 5 families in it. Our daughter loved the little park area. There is a beach just a 5min walk away, lovely in the day and for a walk in the evening. Close by Alum Bay and the Needles are good paces to visit, we went to Blackgang Chine a couple of times which was only 20mins away. All in all a great location.
The cottage was lovely and cosy and had all that we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The cottages do overlook each other where we were, but it wasn't a problem really. The WiFi didn't work, but it was good to have a few days away from the draw of the Internet anyway. The pool was lovely and warm, like being in a bath and it was lovely to relax in the pool after a hard days sightseeing! The tennis court looked in good condition although we didn't get round to using it - too windy! We would definetely consider booking at this holiday park again.
The bungalow was well equiped and spacious for a small family.
We really enjoyed the hot tub and the kids loved the swimming pool.
Shame we didn't have the best weather as I'm sure in the summer the BBQ and patio would be lovely to sit out on.
Great place to take a family on holiday , good value , well organised, helpful staff and great pool. Thank - you , will be comimg back
a lovely relaxing holiday just a bit disappointed that the Captains table and The Hut did not open until the last couple of days of our holiday.
Third stay at this site since last new year and we shall be back. Quiet, clean, friendly and you have everything you need close by. Kids confident as know their way around so can be independent, staff friendly and chatty with them as got to know them. Love this site and is our preference away from the more residential side of the Island. Lots of lovely walks from Hanover Point to The Needles. See you in the Summer
