Isle of Wight hotel 'excels at food'

Tourists may be tempted to book Isle of Wight holidays to stay at the recently refurbished Little Gloster, which has won praise for the food it serves.

The venue is located close to Cowes and near to the island's coast and has been redesigned with a Scandinavian style at the heart of it, it was noted by the Daily Mail.

However, it was the food being served at the accommodation that was singled out by the national newspaper, with the beetroot soup on the menu described as "spectacular".

"Wine is fairly priced, too, This is bistro eating rather than (dread phrase) 'fine dining'. Service is swift and friendly," noted the report, although it was added that the waitress may have been overly attentive at times.

The Little Gloster does not serve breakfast until 09:00 BST, but the reviewer said it is worth the wait, with the muesli with berries and yoghurt said to have put a spring in their step, while the coffee served with the morning meal was also praised.

Three rooms are available for those who want to book Isle of Wight holidays at the Little Gloster on the Isle of Wight and they were described as being "white and bright, neat and tidy", while the bar and dining room at the venue was said to be "huge, open-plan, wood floored".

Ben Cooke is the man behind the rejuvenation of the Little Gloster and he has links to Scandinavia as his grandmother is from the region.

With the high season starting on April 1st, the cheapest room available at the accommodation is on offer at £80 per night during the week and on Sundays, while this price rises to £95 for the weekend, with the most expensive room coming in at £115 and £135 a night.

The Little Gloster is likely to be a popular place to stay during the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, which comes to the Isle of Wight every summer.
