7 friends of a similar age and outlook stayed in one of the best examples of holiday accommodation we had seen, everything required was there and more besides. All rooms were well presented and we wanted for nothing. Definitely a recommendation to anyone who wants a little bit of luxury in the sun, the ladies in the party were all in awe of this magnificent house.
We had a great time visiting as much of the island as possible in probably the best week for weather we could have wished for. Steam trains, water mills, walks in gorges, magnificent views wherever we went and Freshwater Bay which is definitely a hidden jewel. We all ate more than we should have, especially in the Spyglass Inn in Ventnor, wholesome food and live music in the evening was a bonus. A great holiday.

“Simply wonderful”

Gills Cliff House is a beautiful home from home; or at least the sort of home you'd really like to own. It is spacious, light and airy with many little touches that are so often missing from holiday lets. There is plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses, plus cork screws, knife sharpener, seafood crackers & picks (Ventnor lobster is to die for), salt, pepper, washing up liquid. I could go on but you've probably got the picture.
We came for a family holiday - two oldies, son, partner & a 20 month old gorgeous granddaughter - and to catch up with relatives who live in Ventnor. We had a lovely time enjoying glorious weather whether relaxing in the garden or out and about.
Highly recommended.

That having been said I am glad the owners, Jane and Graham, let me rent it for the last week in July. It ties for first place as the best equipped and best situated holiday rental I have had in 50 years of such experiences. I went there with my family (4 adults and 2 young ladies aged 9 and 5) to celebrate my 70th birthday and a brilliant time was had by all. Part in thanks to the company and the slendid weather, sunshine every day, but in no small part due to the excellence of the accommodation. if you get a chance to stay here I urge you to take it, you won't regret it even if the weather isn't good
