"A beautiful, well kept apartment in a great location"
A really clean, comfortable, well equipped apartment (although a hairdryer would be a nice addition) in a fantastic location. Very near transport links, shops etc with a lovely sea view. I had a wonderfully relaxing stay.

My friends and I stayed here for the weekend of the Isle of Wight festival, being of an age where we value our creature comforts over being too close to the action and camping!
The apartment was lovely, even better than we had expected after seeing the photos, with lots of ooohs and aahhs as we explored the rooms after dropping off our bags.
Conveniently placed for everything in Ryde, from the shops to the Hovercraft, ferry, bus station, and of course, lovely sandy beaches.
I'm looking forward to my next stay in September!

"Cosy appartment close to the beach and other happenings"
Went there together with friends last autumn, we were all surprised how much more value for money we got in relation to what we expected.
The overall standard were higher than we wished to think and everything were really clean.
Also the location were great, being located a stones throw from the beach, but also shops, restaurant around the corner.
Getting there was easier than expected as well since we traveled from Sweden, just a couple of minutes from the hoover terminal by foot.
Hope to get there again.

"Nice, clean and good location"
This is a really nice apartment, we stayed during the festival and can honestly say we were pleased we had somewhere warm and dry to stay as well as the luxury of a hot shower.
The location was ideal as we got the bus to and from the site as well as elsewhere on the island. The beach is a very short walk away and we enjoyed taking a stroll when the weather was fine.
The apartment is furnished nicely, maintained well and fully equipped and had everything we needed, there was a bit of noise from the pub behind but nothing too bad.
There is only two things that could have made our stay better, WiFi and a firmer mattress, but I appreciate this is personal preference.

"Beautiful location, made even better with the light, clean and airy accommodation"
Everything we expected and more. I didn't realise that there was an on suite to the master bedroom which was a pleasant surprise. The overall accommodation was very good, modern and peaceful. I would be delighted to recommend this property to anyone and will definately consider staying again in the future. Thank you.
