My husband and I spent two nights here on a sweltering weekend in July. The B&B is recently redecorated and immaculately clean. Our room (#5) was well sized, quiet and came with comfy linens and fluffy towels. The room managed to stay cool despite the heat of the weekend and no AC due to a nice cross breeze from the... More

We stayed for a longer weekend in May this year and had a lovely stay. Although saying that, it was spoiled by the uncomfortable bed mattress in our room. After three nights we were fairly sleep deprived as the mattress was awfully soft. I understand that this is somewhat personal preference, however I would advise investment into firmer better quality... More

Our second stay at Rockstone Cottage. It is surely one of the best B & Bs anywhere! Rooms are immaculate and the breakfasts are superb, with home-made goodies like the bread and the marmalade. There are some lovely extras, such as the really excellent cakes left in the bedroom each day, the shortbread to travel home with, and the high... More

Most B+Bs meet my expectations and Rockstone Cottage is no exception. I enjoyed the accommodation, the location and meeting the chatty hostess who works hard to provide welcoming accommodation whilst balancing a modernisation programme with a traditional cottage feel. Our room was in the eves and was clean, spacious and well laid out. We slept well due to the comfy... More

Excellent bed and breakfast. Immaculate. The breakfast was amazing- beautiful fresh food. Home made granola, Yougart and marmalade. It was 5 star. Sheena made us very welcome and had made chocolate brownies for our arrival- and homemade short bread for our journey home. Will definitely go back- it made our first visit to IOW- really special. Thanks Sheena.

Clean, comfortable, and friendly with touches of brilliance in decor and home cooking (afternoon cakes to die for ! And superb breakfasts). The convenient WiFi meant photos could be downloaded daily. Parking out front was also very convenient.

We had one night at the cottage but would choose to stay here again if returning to the island. The room was wonderfully decorated and spacious. We had a good night's sleep. The delicious chocolate brownie on arrival was most welcome. Breakfast the following morning was also superb and there was a good selection of options for what to have.... More

This was our second visit, and in our view the only place to stay on the Island. So friendly, and welcoming. Amazingly clean and with every luxury one could ask for, including toiletries, and marvellous cakes. Breakfast tempts to most finicky eater with everything home made or locally sourced. All tastes catered for by the hosts. 12 out of 10... More
