"Superb place to stay"

We cannot praise this apartment enough - we have stayed in many places over the years but this one was the best - wonderful location, wonderful views, furnished well and extremely clean - we loved the… More

Many thanks for placing such a detailed review, we are so pleased to read such positive feedback both on Top Deck and on the island as a destination generally. It certainly sounds like you had a busy and active holiday, and we were interested and pleased to hear that it worked so well for you using, by choice, the island's public transport. We certainly hope you may decide to visit again one day.

"Peace, Tranquilaty, Beautiful Views, in Luxury !"

I just want to start by saying what a wonderful Host Serena, i thank you so much for your kindness and empathy at a time of great loss to my family.The Topdeck for what ever occasion fits the bill, it… More

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review, and for your kind comments about both our property and personally . We know your visit sadly transpired to be at a time of personal loss to you, and it is nice if you found Top Deck to be a peaceful haven at a difficult time. As you say, just watching the sea can be lovely - and hopefully a bit therapeutic too. We do indeed look forward to seeing you again hopefully in the future and under happier circumstances.

"Lovely views and modern clean apartment"

We had a lovely honeymoon at top deck and really enjoyed the top deck. Good facilities and location. We loved watching the sunset and listening to the waves each evening. We didn't need a TV (tho… More

We are delighted that you had a good honeymoon at Top Deck and enjoyed the sunsets and sound of the waves - which we indeed hope was a lot more romantic than watching TV (though as you say - you can do both !). Many thanks for your positive feedback and for taking the time to review our property on Tripadvisor.

"Absolutely fabulous, wonderful views and a great welcome."

This was our second stay at Top Deck; owner was a delight to deal with throughout the booking process and during our stay.We arrived to a lovely food hamper and to find the apartment still at the same… More

We are delighted to hear you had a(nother) good stay and that we have kept up the standard since your last visit. We too find the location the perfect mix of handy for amenities but quietly tucked away - as you say, halfway up/down the cliff ! Many thanks for taking the time to place a review.

"Top Deck - Top spot, quiet, relaxing and lovely sea views"

On arriving at Top Deck we discovered a lovely array of goodies in the kitchen to great us - fresh bread, cake, milk, butter, jams, wine, sweets, tea, coffee etc all very much appreciated after a day traveling.
Fresh flowers on the dining table and useful maps, brochures and leaflets for trips out on the island. Plenty of information on how to use the equipment in the property.
The flat was immaculate, clean, tidy and the outside deck on the roof was delightful, a lovely place to sit in the glorious weather we were lucky to have.
Binoculars and a telescope were available to use in the flat, it was great fun watching the fishermen collecting their pots and ships sailing by.
Ventnor has a good selection of stores and places to eat, the whole holiday was a delight, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable.

We are so pleased that you found both your holiday in Ventnor and your stay at Top Deck so relaxing and enjoyable, its always lovely to hear positive feedback from our guests. We do try to make things as "home from home" as possible, and are therefore glad if you found these various touches helpful during your stay. Many thanks for taking the time to post a Tripadvisor review.

"Top Deck just gets better!"

We spent a week in the Top Deck last year and hoped it would be as good this year. We weren't disappointed. Serena and Michael have it down to a fine art - from the incredibly generous welcome pack (the elderflower and orange cake was divine!), to the comfortable furniture and all the little touches - try the jigsaw! Only 250 pieces but it took me nearly five days to do!
It is a perfect base for great walks and marvelous restaurants - the Cantina in Ventnor and The Pond Cafe in Bonchurch were superb.
We were lucky with the weather but did enjoy one storm and the view was even better!
Really there is no better place for a holiday than Ventnor and no place better to stay.

Many thanks for a(nother !) such charming review of Top Deck - and of Ventnor generally. We it there too. Ah but that jigsaw - we reckon 5 days was good going, so well done ! Glad to hear you had a good stay and even enjoyed the storm. Thank you for finding the time to post a review, we really appreciates all our guests' feedback.

"Beautiful holiday home, with lovely owners"

We absolutely loved this amazing apartment. The stunning sea views were lovely to watch whilst relaxing in the living room or on the roof top deck. We had a very warm welcome, which was very pleasant and made us feel at ease. It was a very beautiful apartment, one you could completely relax in. Owners are very lovely and approachable. Ventnor itself is a lovely area, which we always stay in when visiting the island. Highly recommend this holiday apartment. Thank you so much Serena and Michael, we will endeavour to return!

Thank you for such a lovely review, not only of our property Top Deck (and of ourselves !), but of Ventnor too - we love it as well ! We indeed hope you do return one day. Many thanks for taking the time to post on Tripadvisor.

The minute you walk in to the apartment you feel in awe of the views, spoilt by the welcome pack (wine, cake, groceries and flowers) and very much at home with books, magazines and games. Telescope a … More
