The Pilot Boat Inn Rooms are OPEN for booking on a room only basis (ie no breakfast), all rooms are en suite and are self check in with keypads to enable access via their own dedicated entrance.  Due to social distancing regulations the pub will not be open for food or drinks until further notice. 

Our rooms

We have five lovely bedrooms with en suite showers on the first floor.  They are available for one night or more throughout the year.  We have two king size double bed rooms and three bedrooms which can either be twins or super king sized double beds.  Three of our rooms look over the front of the pub towards the harbour with sea glimpses.  We are happy to have dogs to stay, for no charge.  Bembridge is surrounded by dog friendly beaches all year.  


For cyclists staying overnight, we have secure bike storage.  For walkers staying overnight, we can arrange for luggage drop off.   There are seven parking spaces immediately outside the front of the pub and free parking on the road.    

The Pilot Boat Inn is the only pub on Bembridge Harbour and has always been popular with holiday makers and locals alike.  It is close to the beach and only a few minutes walk to the village amenities. 


The rooms are now self check in with key pads to enable access via their own dedicated entrance.  All have en suite shower rooms.  The rooms are cleansed before every booking and there is sanitiser available for all guests to use.  There will only be up to ten guests staying at any one time.   Guests share an entrance, stairway, corridor and private outside area.   The public areas will be cleaned daily.  If you require anything during your stay please message us or leave a note for the cleaner.

We are very much looking forward to having guests to stay again.
