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

I am rather cross though. Nothing to do with the service at this great B&B but I forgot to sign the Guestbook to put into hard print how lovely the St Augustine Villa is. Bob and Esme are professional and friendly and made great efforts to make sure everyone had a comfortable stay. My daughter and I had the lovely... More

This is a lovely B&B, with a great location on the Esplanade. The owners, Bob and Esme, are very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are spacious with en suite bathrooms. The bed was really comfortable and we slept well. We had a great sea view too. There is a nice lounge to sit and read in. The breakfast room is a... More

Location is great overlooking the beach and small harbour. Everything in Ventnor is a few minutes walk away, although the main part of town is a bit uphill. The room was fun - we had room 6 the Tower room. The bedroom was great with windows on three sides, a large TV and comfy bed. The bathroom (and wardrobe) is... More
