“A great friendly place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stayed for two excellent days. Tania and Peter could not have been more welcoming. Great rooms and beds. We really enjoyed their top quality breakfasts. We enjoyed their chats and quality advice about things to do on the island. This is a great place to stay!

I am so please we decided to stay here rather than a hotel, the hosts (Tania and Peter) were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble, even getting us in to the local restaurant when we had already been told they were fully booked ! We stayed in the lodge and it was well equipped and the bed so comfortable, every night when we returned from the restaurant the beds were immaculately turned down ready for you just to fall in and dream away !! The breakfast was easily equal to a 5 star hotel with everything cooked to order, I would not hesitate in recommending this delightful Bed and Breakfast to anyone... Thank you..

This was a wonderful hotel, very comfortable beds, friendly staff and great breakfast selection.
Spacious rooms with fully-featured en suite bathroom and a gift basket of chocolates etc!
There was a pleasant atmosphere as if we were personal guests of the owners, they made us feel welcome and catered to everything we needed.

The town of Freshwater is small but friendly and has several supermarkets.
Yarmouth, a ferry terminal and The Needles are all nearby and the drive to Ventnor or Newport is short enough that the whole island is at your fingertips.

I would heartily recommend this hotel.
It even has an open garden area with decking and small bridges over a peaceful stream, this would be a wonderful space to relax in the summer.

The hosts were very warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome on arrival and during our stay. Our beds were turned down each evening with chocolates on the pillows. The facilities were excellent and we were even treated to a 'welcome treats' basket. Breakfast was out of this world and the room was clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you!

Definitely 5 star

We are regular B&B users and this is one fo the best places we have stayed.
Spotlessly clean, high quality fittings in bedrooms and bathrooms, very comfortable beds with lovely linen, and lots of nice little touches including bed being turned down and a bottle of cool water placed surreptitously on bedside table. The breakfast was very tasty.
Peter and Tania are very welcoming including a lovely cuppa and cream scone when we arrived. They went to great lengths to ensure we had a happy stay.
It was great value and I thoroughly recommend Criers Croft.

Tania and Peter was so welcoming and very helpful. We stayed for a weekend in order to explore the Isle of Wight to look for possible locations we would like to buy a second home. Peter and Tania really 'sold us' on the island! The room was warm, the bed extremely comfortable and the shower great. The 2 breakfasts we had there were wonderful. Hopefully we will stay there again later in the year when we view properties to buy.
