En Suite shower very difficult for entry and exit as high step no grab rails and very slippery . We had to buy rubber mat for inside the shower and a proper size mat for outside the showe as floor very slippery when wet. Certainly not suitable for the infirm.Also the bath Is very high and not easy for anyone to enter.

Our stay at Regatta

4 of 5
Spent a very comfortable week in this property. Cowes is not our favourite spot on the island but the property provided a good base and the views over the Solent were exceptional. Since our last visit solar heating had been installed which made a continuous noise in the small entrance hall and bathroom but did not cause any issues in the rest of the flat. We would not hesitate to book this property again provided it offered value for money.
