The England region

The Isle of Wight is a county and the largest island of England, located in the English Channel, on average about 2–4 miles (3–6 km) off the south coast of the county of Hampshire, separated from the mainland by a strait called the Solent. The Island has many resorts which have been holiday destinations since Victorian times.The Island has a rich history, including a brief status as an independent kingdom in the 15th century. Until 1995, like Jersey and Guernsey, the Island had its own Governor—most notably Lord Mountbatten from 1969–1974, after which he became Lord Lieutenant until his assassination in 1979.It was home to the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, and to Queen Victoria, who built her much-loved summer residence and final home Osborne House at East Cowes. The Island's maritime and industrial history encompasses boat building, sail making, the manufacture of flying boats, the world's first hovercraft and the testing and development of Britain's space rockets. It is home to the Isle of Wight International Jazz Festival, Bestival and the recently-revived Isle of Wight Festival, which, in 1970, was the largest rock music event ever held. The Island has some exceptional wildlife and is one of the richest locations of dinosaur fossils in Europe.

Ventnor

Ventnor is a seaside resort and civil parish established in the Victorian era on the south coast of the Isle of Wight, England. It lies underneath St Boniface Down (which, at 240 metres (787 feet), is the highest point on the Isle of Wight), and is built on steep slopes and cliffs leading down to the sea. The higher part is referred to as Upper Ventnor (although officially it is Lowtherville); the lower part, where most of the amenities are located, being known as Ventnor. Ventnor is sometimes understood as including the coastal villages of St. Lawrence to one side and Bonchurch to the other.The sheltered location on the cliff of the Island's south coast means the area experiences a microclimate with more sunny days than much of the British Isles, and fewer frosts. This has allowed many species of subtropical plant to be successfully planted and maintained. Ventnor Botanic Garden is particularly notable.

“perfect base to explore the Isle of Wight”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2015

this was a great flat, beautiful views overlooking the ocean, two bedrooms (one double, one twin), All the kitchen accessories and equipment you could think of, and a welcome pack with tea, coffee and a bottle of wine. The flat has its own parking space which is really useful. Lots of info about Ventnor and the Isle is provided and there was great communication from the owner before and after.

“Fantastic view and great apartment”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2015

The property was clean, tidy and well laid out. It was perfect for my husband and I and our 8 year old grandson. It is a great location, close to the beach and local shops. If we come back to the isle of Wight I would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

“Great place to relax”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2015

An ideal place to sit in comfort and watch the amazing views of the sea and the ships sailing by. Very convenient for walking to pubs, restaurants, the beach and to public transport to get around the island (we didn't bother to bring the car). The place was well equipped and the little extras were much appreciated. Would happily stay here again.

“Fantastic accommodation”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2015

Fantastic accommodation, always clean and tidy, and well equipped with all you need to feel like you're at home. Location great, less than five minutes walk to shops and beach. Great views from front of property too. We've returned for a short break many times now and will continue to do so as Royal Marine House gives us all we need for a relaxing holiday.

“Nice and warm apartment, perfect for families with children.”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2014

We traveled to Ventnor in November which was cold and windy. The apartment is nice cosi and warm, well equipped and safe for children. Highly recommend. It is a pity we couldn't use the front patio to have our coffies in the morning as it was to cold but still admired stunning view through the windows.

“Ventnor with a view”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2014

Great View straight out to see, and close to town to walk to the cafe's and other shops etc. accommodation was good although my son is over 6ft and the single bed was a little small :) Otherwise perfect.

“Superb accommodation, location and views”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2014

The short distance to the beach and town centre made this an excellent location and there were many good eating places within walking distance. The property was exactly as described on the website. It was great to have a private car parking space at the rear but it was 'testing' for a large care.

“Amazing place with stunning views”

Reviewed 1 May 2014

Stayed for 3 nights with my husband. What an amazing flat with stunning views. The flat is very clean and well equipped. The booking was hassle free with very clear instructions. Ventnor is a very nice place to stay.

“An ideal apartment with beautiful views”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay .This was our third holiday in Ventnor, but our first time at the apartment. It was very clean and modern and we spent many hours watching the boats and cruise liners, from the sitting room. Although the weather was not always good, we still enjoyed sitting on the patio by the front door.The shower room was spacious and the road was quiet. Parking was tight but we soon got the hang of turning the car to exit the drive. We have a Ford Focus. We would definitely return again.

“Great house in a great location”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2013

Based on previous reviews and the number of repeat visitors, we booked a long weekend at Royal Marine House and weren't disappointed! The booking process was painless and Richard provided a great deal of useful information prior to arrival - there is a good deal of additional information / recommendations at the house. The house was spotless and has all the amenities that a family could need. Add to that the view across Ventnor beach and it has everything! There are great restaurants near by - the Spyglass Inn is a particular favourite with the kids and the portions are enormous. My only advice would be for drivers of large family cars - parking is very tight. However, there are plenty of places to leave your car for free within a few minutes walk. Overall a great place to stay.
