Booked this based on reviews as my husband and i wanted a relaxing break from work. Arrived and were greeted by Esme who showed us around and gave us a key to room 1. Really nice room with a bathroom and sea view. A very homely feel to the whole place. The key allowed us to let ourselves into and... More

We have visited Esme and Bob several times over many years, and whilst the building has changed names from The Chalet Hotel to The Harbour View and now to St Augustines Villa we have just returned after an 11 year break...and it's still brilliant with the same brilliant hosts. Great period property, fitting in with Ventnor's Victorian heritage. St Augustine's... More

I have stayed many times at St Augustine Villa so I know what to expect, but I am still taken a back at quite what a beautiful location it is. The owners Bob and Esme are everything you would wish for in hosts. The Villa is comfortable and welcoming. The view of the villa as you approach from the town... More

Shown to Room 3, a spacious, bright, comfy room with stunning sea views and the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep. Filling breakfast to keep you going until the obligatory crab sandwich later in the day.

Esme and Bob were great hosts. They made us most welcome. They even catered for Jim's penchant for fried bread and marmalade! Our four poster bedded room was lovely and overlooked the sea. Well located and comfortable. See you next year!

Having visited Ventnor before, it was where we chose to stay on our visit. My partner made the booking for us and the proprietor kindly booked the ferry at a reduced rate then doing it ourselves, worth doing! Parking is at a premium but okay. We were greeted by the couple who own the hotel and they kindly helped us... More

Victorian spa splendor with a little Italian twist. Beautiful hotel, lovely room (7), amazing views and such a warm welcome (thanks Bob and Esme).St Augustine was the perfect base for enjoying the Ventnor Festival: a really great first trip to the IOW! .

We loved it here. We entered the attractive building, received a warm welcome from its kind and hospitable owners, got a peek at its quaint (the good kind!), warm interior and… we instantly felt relaxed, excited and at home. On top of that, the spectacular ocean view from our room (no. 3) and the gentle sound of the surf made... More

Recently had a short stay at St Augustine Villa. As has been stated before, a Wonderful position, with great views from our room over the Channel. Our room was very spacious and a wonderful comfortable bed. Thick fluffy towels in the en-suite and a good breakfast - sitting in the conservatory(various choices) to start our day off. Bob and Esme... More

This large and imposing and for the most part beautiful building houses Bob and Esme in whose care we received the best B&B hospitality anyone could imagine for the money. Room 7 was large and comfortable and the breakfast menu varied and delicious. The view was wonderful and all of the time in the room was soothed by the gentle... More
