Just returned from a return visit to Swiss Cottage. It's in a very convenient location near old village and sea front as well as being run perfectly - everything is thought about. We felt very welcome and enjoyed the visit. Thanks to Lucy for finding our car keys!

We have stayed at the Swiss Cottage on numerous occasions and once again it didn't disappoint. Keith and Christine are perfect hosts and we always feel like we are treated as friends rather than guests. The food is excellent with the breakfast being substantial enough to last you all day. As always the place is spotless and beds comfortable. We... More

I have honestly never felt so uncomfortable in my life as i did in the brief stay at that BnB. The owners were so cold and unwelcoming. it felt like the owners were doing some kind of favor at us by letting us stay there. Food was good in general but one day they served us baked beans that had... More

Swiss Cottage is in a great location for exploring the IOW. Within easy walking distance to beach and local amenities. My teenage grandsons loved their own room and the cooked breaksfasts which were "awesome"

Christine & Keith have worked very hard the rooms are very comfortable, well decorated and clean. I have never found as many home comforts provided before. There was a lovely friendly feeling at breakfast in the mornings. The breakfast was delicious.... More

This is our 4th time of going back to ' The Swiss Cottage '. Christine and Keith greeted us not as guests but old friends. The rooms we stay in are spacious, clean and very comfortable, with lots of added extras that you don't normally get. The food is absolutely delicious. If you want a fab holiday book Swiss Cottage

A lovely place to stay! Very friendly & helpful hosts who made our stay feel just like home. Food was delicious and many choices for every meal. Transport was within walking distance which meant we could easily get around the island.

A smartly presented property with excellent hosts. Our room was pleasantly decorated and more than adequately sized for us. Our hosts were always pleasant and breakfast more than filling. A great place to stay for a short break or longer holiday. Well situated for most of the tourist locations on the island.

Room was very comfortable and Hosts (Christine & Keith) extremely friendly .Would certainly return... More
