Rockstone cottage was very clean and comfortable and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety on the menu. We saw more of Sheena than Gary and she was very sociable and always bright and cheerful in the morning. The cakes that were left for us in the bedroom each day were delicious

Sheena is only 'bright and cheerful' in the morning because I am chained to the kitchen sink. Thank you for this lovely review. More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of the Isle of Wight and could not have chosen a better 'B&B' than Rockstone to stay at - from the location near the beach, the very warm welcome, to the freshly baked cakes left for us each day, and the freshly baked bread with our fantastic breakfast each day. It was truly a... More

My friend and I stayed at Rockstone Cottage as part of a memory lane trip as we both went to school on the Isle of Wight . We both found it very comfortable, wonderful surroundings as a stones throw from the beach. The rooms were beautifully decorated, although the shower was not as powerful as I would like. The breakfasts... More

Since you brought the subject up I will state the facts. Our check-in times are 3.00pm to 6.30pm unless by "PRIOR ARRANGEMENT" (you were e-mailed twice to this effect) By your own admission you booked the 8.20pm ferry which at the earliest you would have got here at 10.00pm (you arrived at 10.30pm) a full 4 hours after check-in. Yes... More

We were recomended this B&B for a short stay in the Freshwater area. The recommendation turned out to be very well founded. Not only was the accomodation very comfortable, but the breakfast was very much tasty and well presented. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.

We stayed for three nights at Rockstone Cottage. It's conveniently located for the west side of the island, although we didn't find getting to anywhere from there particularly difficult. The room we had (3, Colwell Bay) is a reasonable size, if a little dated, and more than adequate for a short stay. But it was the breakfasts that made our... More
