Warm welcome, room clean and nicely decorated with en-suite bathroom. Tasty home made cakes, different each day, left in room daily for when we returned and fabulous home made and wide choice for locally sourced and homemade breakfast. Note if you want the kippers you need to give 24 hrs notice.

Friendly and service-minded couple, stayed at the first floor, view on garden, clean room, tiny shower but you will manage, very well furbished rooms, really done breakfast, and we will suggest to pay a visit to "the hut" at the beach for a super diner :)

Well what an experience without even staying. I'm sure this is a lovely place to stay and the owners are normally great but I feel so amazingly disappointed and angry about my experience that I feel it deserves to be shared- this is only my second review! I booked a last minute trip to the island and was delighted to... More

You booked this break through Booking.com, that clearly states that our check in times are 3-6.30pm unless by prior arrangement. You booked the room and assumed you could check in over 4 hours late, this put us in a very awkward position, we work long hours and cannot have our other guests being disturbed at such a late hour. Perhaps... More

Just boarding the ferry after a lovely two night stay at Rockstone cottage, complete with home-made biscuits in our bag courtesy of the lovely Sheena. She and her husband Gary made us feel very welcome from the start with home-made brownies on arrival too. Breakfast was delicious, the room was spotless and beautifully decorated. It really was the best B&B... More

We have just returned from 3 nights at Rockstone Cottage whilst undertaking our mammoth walking tour of the IOW. We couldn't have chosen better. Excellent rooms with big comfortable bed and a very full tasty breakfast. Some nice little extra touches such as different cakes in the room every evening and a small issue with a faulty electric kettle was... More

Wow, what an amazing little gem! From the minute we arrived (My mum and I) we were made to feel very welcome. Gary and Sheena are such kind and friendly people. They made us feel right at home. The rooms are so clean, and even the little touches are thought of. When we arrived we were shown to our room.... More

Lovely warm welcome - 2 salted caramel cup-cakes, freshly-baked, on arrival - with Chocolate Chip the next day. Room in the eaves was very comfortable, nicely designed. House has real history dating back to Nelson's time. Just a few yards away is the the sea - Colwell Bay - and the lovely Hut restaurant. Breakfast at the Cottage is full-on,... More

Excellent accommodation; superb breakfast, friendly hosts and warm welcome. We would recommend to friends and family without reservation. It was well situated as a base to explore that corner of the Isle of Wight.

Very warm welcome from Sheena and Gary. Bedroom at the top of the house was very well equipped to even include dressing gowns. Breakfasts on both mornings were extensive and great. Colwell Bay has a superb restaurant called The Hut.
