Details

The Fountain Hotel Cowes Isle of Wight is located on the Quay in Cowes Isle of Wight. Located in West Cowes only a step off the ferry terminal.

The Fountain Hotel was built in 1771 as the Golden Fleece and had another inn, the Dolphin, right next door. An early visitor was the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, who stayed with his entourage preparatory to departing after a state visit in 1789. As both the headquarters and the terminus of the ferry company, the Fountain Hotel quickly became Cowes' premier inn, entertaining such dignitaries as King Charles X of France and his family in 1830.

Cowes comes alive in June each year for the Round The Island yacht race. Sit outside and enjoy the fun on our decked area. The summer continues to be a hive of activity with the highlight of Cowes Week Regatta during the first week of August. Today it is an ideal haven for yachting enthusiasts, business people and holiday makers and is an ideal all-year-round base from which to explore the Isle of Wight, with The Needles, Blackgang Chine and Queen Victoria's Osborne House. No car park.

The Fountain has 20 comfortable en suite bedrooms, including feature rooms, some with sea views. All rooms have TV, telephone, hairdryer, iron/ironing board and tea/coffee making facilities. Free Wifi.
