Awards & Accolades

At the Swiss Cottage we have strived to achieve and maintain various awards and are one of the few still rated 5 out 5 with one of the highest satisfaction rates at 96% on Trip Advisor since 2010.

We have received The Certificate of Excellence & Hall of Fame Awards, as we are in the Top 1% in the UK as we have remained in the Top 5 on the Isle of Wight for 12 consecutive years.

We have also been voted 4 times by them at their Annual Awards as The Travellers Choice which is the Top 25 in the United Kingdom – 2nd best on the Isle of Wight and 12th Best in the United Kingdom in 2011/12 for Family-Friendly Establishment, voted 1st on the IOW & 10th Best in the UK in 2013/14 in their Small/Budget Hotel category and 1st on the IOW & 11th place in the UK in 2016/17 for Best Small Hotel and again recently 3rd on the IOW & 21st place in the UK in 2018/19 for Best Small Hotel.

We are also proud to have received the prestigious Silver Award from Visit England for High Quality of our Accommodation and Service every year since 2010 to current day 2023.

In September 2014 we were Awarded the Visit England’s Breakfast Award for our High Quality of Service and produce, which again only shows our high standards that we aim to achieve and have continued receiving that award every year up to current day 2023.

In 2014, 2016 and again in 2017, we have been Awarded Trip Advisors The Green Leaders Gold Award for being Environmentally Friendly with our towel & linen changes, energy saving lighting & motion sensors, hand sanitizers & cleanliness and our recycling bin policy which we operate in our establishment, so we would like to thank all those guests who do abide by our simple helpful guidelines to maintain the property with us.

This is in addition to our Green Tourism Gold we won since 2008 & since 2018 we have also been awarded the Silver Star for Visit IOW Green Awards.

Please see our full Environmental Policy below and up on our wall in our hallway.

We have been recognised by Tourism South of England in their Best B&B/Guest Accommodation category in the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence 2014 and not only winning the category on the Island but with very stiff competition we won the award for 4th place/Highly Commended at the Awards Ceremony competing against the whole of the South Coast properties .

We have also been interviewed by the County Press and also been on Isle of Wight Vectis Radio.

Thank you also to all those other Hoteliers and Friends and Guests who have sent congratulatory emails and cards to us.

This puts the icing on the cake for all our hard work and dedication over the years.

We must be doing something right but still appreciate you can not satisfy every single person regardless how hard you try!

Best Wishes to All

Keith & Christine
