“Lovely stay”

We had a fantastic week at The Albury Cottage. The cottage is clean and very comfortable, with the added bonus of a parking space. The Old Village and beach are both a short walk away and there is a very handy co-op just round the corner. What really sets this place apart though is the hospitality of Elaine. It was our daughters birthday while we were staying and, as well as the very nice hamper, we were greeted with a birthday cake and balloon, which was a great start to the holiday. The Isle of Wight is a great destination with young children and this cottage is the perfect base to explore.

Reviewed August 12, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I cannot recommend this cottage for a family of 4 enough!we arrived after a weekend at camp bestival and need home comforts and everything was perfect! Elaine has put so much love and thought into every detail, even down to the fabulous welcome basket which meant we didn't need a dash to the shops and could relax for the evening!the beds are so comfortable,the place is immaculate. ...everything to make your stay as perfect as possible has been thought of! Great location, beach at the end of the road and the other end is the town centre! We will definitely return! Thank you SO much Elaine!see you soon! ( and thank you for returning dotties cuddlies! !) :-)

“Another wonderful stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is the second time we have stayed,and loved it just as much as the first time. Elaine was as welcoming as ever, beautiful hamper left for us on arrival and everything else we could possibly need was at the cottage. We cant wait for next year to come again, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

“Another great stay”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had taken our 6 week old baby to stay here as our first family holiday and we enjoyed it so much that we returned a year later. Elaine greeted us again and made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. The cottage is perfect and has everything you need for an easy home from home holiday. I have no doubt we will be returning once baby 2 is here at the end of the year! Thanks again Elaine for a wonderful stay.

Just returned from my 3rd visit to The Albury. Elaine was as welcoming as ever - great hostess. Freezing weather but the Villa was warm & cosy. Really like a home from home. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank You

“excellent, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

we recently stayed at the Albury in December between christmas and new year, and the cottage was ideal, especially with two teenagers.
we were met at the property by the cottage owner, where we were shown around and given the keys etc. very organised.

The cottage is very clean and well maintained throughout.
The cottage is ideally situated close to the main Shanklin high street, which has a 24 hour cash machine, various takeaways etc, plenty of shops for all your day to day essentials and only a two min walk.
you are close to the beach of shanklin, about a ten min walk tops.
there is a local CIU affiliated social club within 5 mins walk of the Albury, (which is within falling distance) if you are a member.
i would highly recommend this cottage to anyone, as we plan to return again.
And thank you again to Elaine for making us very welcome. Thank You again

Just returned from a wonderful weeks stay in the SC cottage. Loved the great welcome hamper which was very grateful. The location was very good, so easy to get to the town and beach. We had such great weather were very lucky. Elaine's greeting was very welcoming and helpful. Recommend it to everyone.
