“Beautiful apartment with lots of extra details to make a comfortable stay.”

Had a lovely week on IOW and loved staying in this apartment. Beautifully furnished and comfortable. Really appreciated all the extra details that made our stay easy... everything provided such as welcome pack with milk/tea/biscuits etc etc plus tea towels, bags, sandwich bags and all those little things that you dont want to take with you, but are rarely provided. Very well thought out. Thank you.

“Surpassed our expections”

We stayed at this beautiful location, in this beautiful quaint apartment on the top of the hill. What a delight. We stayed for six days and the apartment was always a joy to return to after a day of trekking and sightseeing. Our hosts thought of everything from a welcome basket to well stocked cupboards, to gifts and fresh towels for each person in residence. The view every morning encouraged me to take up jogging for the first time ever, the landscape is irresistible.

Along with my partner and two teenage boys (which can be hard to entertain) we would without doubt go again and with all the luck in the world stay at the same apartment.

Would I recommend it, NO!! I want this to be my secret piece of heaven on earth! Just kidding I would recommend this abode in it's natural setting in a heart beat.

Thank you for sharing.

“small and perfectly formed, super views, drenched with sun”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed just for three nights. We were two adults and two children under 10. The children said the best thing about the flat was being right at the top and having such a great view. They were right - in the evenings this must be one of the most sun-drenched flats on the island.
The flat suits a family with young children. They will love the little surprises that await them and our two felt like royalty in their rather grown up bedroom. The flat is spotlessly clean and it all looks exactly as it does in the photos with imaginative and clever use of the space at every turn.
We loved the location - convenient for everything on the Island. We happily visited Shanklin and Bembridge on the east coast, Osborne House, ice skating (ug) in Ryde and the beautiful St Catherine's point and West Wight. But you needn't go that far - there is plenty to do within walking distance. Don't miss Shanklin Chine.
We had a lovely time here and I hope we can go back.

“What a lovely place to stay!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

For anyone that knows the Isle of Wight you will know that most of the accommodation is quite old and run down, not The Priory.

We stayed here April 2014 over the Easter weekend and we simply couldn't have asked for much more from the apartment.
As we arrived we met Gabi who was there to hand over the keys for the apartment, she was very friendly and helpful with plenty of smiles. The owners were very thoughtful and had left a few welcome baskets for us with pretty much everything we could and did need over the weekend as well as lovely Easter treats, information booklet and instructions for all appliances.

The apartment was spotless and everything in it is good quality, kitted out like 'home from home', the only things we needed were our own clothes.

The only recommendation we would make to improve your stay is to bring your own bath sheets if bath towels are usually not big enough for you.
We also found that the shower in the en-suite was fantastic/good for washing 'her' hair apparently (mains shower) although the shower in the family bathroom lacked a bit of pressure/not so good for washing 'her' hair (Electric).
The toilet in the en-suite is 'cosy' although the one in the family bathroom was a bit more spacious.

All in all a very pleasant stay in an apartment no more than 5mins walk from Shanklin Old Town, made all the more enjoyable by the thoughtfulness of the owners!!

p.s. Pictures supplied by the owners are exactly as you would find the apartment

“Stylish and exceptional value.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Immaculate, clean and stylish flat in a very attractive building with a fantastic view over Shanklin beach. Very good value and it came well stocked with a welcome basket of food plus helpful extras like oil, salt etc. Lovely grounds for the kids to explore and just a short walk to the pretty end of Shanklin. Ideal for a family of two adults and two kids. We would love to stay there again.
