“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Very little to see and obnoxious service although the location overlooking the Solent is excellent. Yarmouth itself is well worth visiting

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Probably one of the smallest castles one will ever visit! Not bad for half an hour or so and there are some nice views across the Solent but the castle in truth is something of nothing.

“Tiny castle (more like a watchtower!)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Having read a lot of good reviews on here, we decided to visit this castle on our last day in Isle of Wight. We ended up a bit disappointed as this place was so small and there was nothing to do there. We spent about 30 mins there then just left to the ferry. Not too bad for the price though (£4 each for adult)

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This Castle was well worth a visit, sorry to say we were pushed for time, so could not stay to long here but as we hope to go back to Isle of Wight next year will visit it again

“HIDDEN TREASURE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Hidden away down an alleyway, and although small, well worth a visit. We enjoyed the views across the solent. Very easy to get around and historically very interesting.
