“The perfect rest”
Reviewed 15 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

I've stayed at Woodcliffe three times now, always in Apartment C. The view from the main bedroom of the lawns and the English Channel is just wonderful.

St Lawrence is a special place as it's on the Undercliff. The erstwhile main road between Ventnor and West Wight is much quieter than you'd expect - out of season at any rate.

The apartment is warm, clean, well-equipped and nicely furnished. The free wifi is a real bonus as far as I'm concerned.

Bryce looks after Woodcliffe and its visitors really well. I particularly appreciate his "tell us if there's a problem" policy - not that I've ever had to make use of it.

So for a perfect rest, this is the place I'd choose to come to in the island any time.

“Woodcliffe is a lovely holiday retreat, set in private grounds, facing the sea.”
Reviewed 6 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed the time at Woodcliffe Holiday Appartments, looking forward to staying there again sometime. Plenty of cliff walks and bays, excellent pubs and restaurants within easy reach. Conveniently near the interesting town of Ventnor.
First class self catering accomodation set in private grounds facing south to the sea.
Car parking adjacent to the house via private drive from the road.
The owners were delightful.

“Some good and some bad sides”
Reviewed 19 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed for one week in the garden flat. The reception by our hosts was very nice. The apartment is spacious and has a lovely view to the garden and onto the sea. There are a lot of sitting areas and kids love the garden.
Unfortunately the apartment was not cleaned properly.
The kitchen was very big but due to the window facing east very dark during the day.
The bathroom and extra toilet are very “old-fashioned” (except the Ensuite in the master bedroom) and cold because the windows could not be closed efficiently.
The apartment has a lot of potential but would need some more decoration to make you really feel at home.
There are definitely not enough pictures of this apartment on the internet to get a good impression

We’re disappointed you weren’t fully happy, particularly as overseas visitors. We live on site and always ask people to tell us if there are any problems or omissions, and we’ll sort them immediately if we can - nothing was said e.g. on investigation the kitchen had two main overhead light bulbs not working which did make it seem dark.

The bathroom and toilet are being completely refurbished this winter (to add to new en-suite and new sea view conservatory). We take cleaning seriously and normally check the cleaner’s work ourselves – there are no details, but we have since spring cleaned the flat and will be using checklists next season.

a wonderful base to see the isle of wight from, simple but very comfortable with lots of added extras like a laundry room. a real mix of other guests young familys, walkers, retired people & couples. lots of space in the garden. i would highly recommend this establishment & its management. i thought steep hill cove was stunning & worth the short 25minute walk from these apartments. feel like i struck gold with this choice!
