With the strains of a grand piano wafting through this lovely late Victorian home and surrounded by period furniture and original art works, one could easily be back in the days of John Ruskin and Lewis Carroll.....but not unless they had wifi too!! Second time here....calm and comfortable stay yet again.

We stayed here with some friends and really enjoyed it. The owner was very helpful in figuring out plans that fit just what we were looking for and the rooms were very comfortable. Also, the breakfast was fantastic.

We were warmly welcomed and felt at home instantly. The bed was comfy. Homemade bread and a filling breakfast cooked to perfection by the lovely Willow! And the icing on the cake was that the freshly ground coffee was excellent, a great start to each day!!

Total value for money at Ruskin Lodge where we began the most relaxing and comfortable start to our visit to the IOW. The rooms were full of the most interesting things - books, art, music and comfy, relaxing sofas. The breakfast was out of this world with home cooked food and variety and choice. There was a family feel, making... More

This was our first time on the IoW and we were so pleased to have found this lovely b&b. It is a most interesting victorian lodge with fascinating oil paintings. The rooms were very clean and comfortable (they kindly moved some of the tail height china in the hall and bedroom as we had our chocolate Labrador Maxi!). Very quiet... More

My two friends and I were walking around the Isle of Wight in the space of three days and had decided to break up our journey in Freshwater Bay and Shanklin. We weren't the perfect guests as we had got delayed on our walk and arrived considerably later than we'd predicted but the owner Simon was more than understanding and... More

Stayed here for a couple of days, off peak, and it was wonderful. Simon was a perfect host, in a beautiful and interesting house. The collection of paintings, artifacts and antiques was a incredibly interesting. Simons attention was fantastic, a coal fire in the guest lounge and a great breakfast. Everything top class.

Ruskin Lodge is a beautiful Victorian villa that is decorated and furnished to very high standards and in the style of that wonderful bygone era but with the facilities and advantages of modern times. Simon, the owner, is very thoughtful of his guests, providing comfortable, clean lodgings with a wonderful array of breakfast choices yet on the other hand remaining... More

Stayed here for two nights to meet up with old friends. The rooms are spacious and decorated to a fine standard. The bed is comfy, the shower is hot and full flowing. The breakfasts are marvellous. Best of all the staff are very welcoming and do all they can to help you enjoy your stay.
