We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of the Isle of Wight and could not have chosen a better 'B&B' than Rockstone to stay at - from the location near the beach, the very warm welcome, to the freshly baked cakes left for us each day, and the freshly baked bread with our fantastic breakfast each day. It was truly a...

My friend and I stayed at Rockstone Cottage as part of a memory lane trip as we both went to school on the Isle of Wight . We both found it very comfortable, wonderful surroundings as a stones throw from the beach. The rooms were beautifully decorated, although the shower was not as powerful as I would like. The breakfasts...

Since you brought the subject up I will state the facts. Our check-in times are 3.00pm to 6.30pm unless by "PRIOR ARRANGEMENT" (you were e-mailed twice to this effect) By your own admission you booked the 8.20pm ferry which at the earliest you would have got here at 10.00pm (you arrived at 10.30pm) a full 4 hours after check-in. Yes...

We were recomended this B&B for a short stay in the Freshwater area. The recommendation turned out to be very well founded. Not only was the accomodation very comfortable, but the breakfast was very much tasty and well presented. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

We had a lovely warm welcome at Rockstone Cottage, a beautiful decorated, comfortable room, with wonderful added extras...lovely homemade cake every day, creams, soaps, fresh luxury towels .

We stayed for three nights at Rockstone Cottage. It's conveniently located for the west side of the island, although we didn't find getting to anywhere from there particularly difficult. The room we had (3, Colwell Bay) is a reasonable size, if a little dated, and more than adequate for a short stay. But it was the breakfasts that made our...

A pleasant stay. The hosts Sheena and Gary are a lovely couple and do their best to make you feel welcome. They even put additional cooling into our room without being asked. Her cakes are first class. The only thing they are working on is increasing the speed of their internet connection. However, I could just get 4G internet on...

Just spent six nights at this great b & b. Our hosts went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfy and clean, the breakfasts were delicious (lots of different choices for vegetarians). A lovely beach just a short walk away.
