Stayed at Rockstone Cottage over the May bank holiday. Really friendly b&b. Lovely breakfast with good variety/selection of foods. All freshly made. Very informative about the local area. Would definitely stay again.

We return to the island every other year as it is the family home going back generations and still visit Steep Hill Cove near Ventnor where the Wheeler members of my husband's family are still in business. We used to stay at The Albion Hotel on Freshwater Bay till it completely lost the plot (and I see by latest reports...

Rockstone cottage is a very clean / tidy B&B. There is plenty of parking available. The breakfasts were amazing with a wide range of choices including daily specials. The room was very comfortable. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Stayed one night. Very clean and comfortable room. Short 2 minute walk to the sandy beach. Homemade chocolate brownie placed in room was lovely. Likewise the homemade bread and marmalade at breakfast.

Excellent room, good shower, lovely breakfasts and home made cakes. Sheena and Gary were very friendly and helpful hosts. Would not hesitate to recommend Rockstone Cottage and will use it again when we next visit the Isle of Wight.

The room we had was very nice and spacey, with a fabulous super king size bed. Great bathroom, too. All is perfectly provided, from soft bath towels to tea facilities and even delicious cakes. Excellent breakfast ! However, we did miss the "human touch" of the hosts.

One of those homely and very comfortable B&Bs. Very clean and comfortable with a breakfast menu to die for. Gary and Sheena were the perfect hosts. Bonus points for the little touches including home made cake in the room and biscuits to take on the journey home. View over the garden with bantam hens scratching about. Close to the Lymington...

Accommodated us at very short notice & went way over and above reasonable expectations! Great place, great hosts & a superb breakfast too. I particularly liked the little design details in the decor that really show that the owners are passionate about the place & this comes across in their service & the overall experience as a guest. Cant fault...
