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

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

Simon is very accommodating and welcoming. We stayed with our 14 month old baby. Cot and high chair provided which was excellent. Breakfast was amazing freshly made bread and lovely fruit. A very relaxing stay. Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Thank you Simon for accommodating us!

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.

We stayed at Ruskin Lodge at the end of May, the rooms are beautiful, beds are comfortable and the staff so friendly; nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast each morning was delicious with plenty to choose from. There is plenty to do in the area both walking distance or a short drive, we only stayed three nights, and I wish... More

My husband and I stayed at Simon’s home for 2 nights whilst visiting the island for a friends’ wedding. Our room was clean and comfortable and we immediately felt at home. We made our friends very jealous as we described our lovely breakfast which included freshly made bread, ripe, juicy blackberries picked that morning whilst sitting in a delightful room... More
