“Fantastic B&B well run and very highly recommended”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Sheena and Gary's B&B is a real gem run by a wonderful couple who obviously know what guests like. Nothing was too much trouble for them. It was a brilliant find and we will certainly be returning very soon. The homemade Brownies and Shortbread for the journey home are fantastic and show the level of attention to detail that so many places lack. They are a very welcoming lovely couple who instantly make you feel at home. The room was very spacious and the bed so comfortable it was like being at home. The morning breakfast choices are excellent and very well cooked. We cannot praise this B&B highly enough. Thank you for making our short stay so memorable.

Sheena and Gary are the most welcoming hosts.
Our room was very kindly upgraded for my partner's 40th birthday and he got a birthday cake and banner!
Location is perfect, 2 minutes walk from the coast. We enjoyed a lovely long walk which led us to the Needles!
On the beach was a fantastic restaurant called Barefoot on the Beach, a small and initimate place with gorgeous food. Booking is required.
The best thing about Rockstone was being woken by the smell of a full English breakfast being cooked.
Love the place and will go back again.

I have stayed in many B&B over the world but these 4 nights were amongst the most comfortable.
The muffins and chocolate brownies for supper were a nice and unexpected touch.
The full English breakfast was as good as any I have had.
My hosts were gracious and as accommodating as is possible to be.
Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Brilliant location, very close to the beach and a lovely beach it is. The qulaity of the breakfast was excellent. We were welcomed to our room by lovely homemade brownies and seen off with superb homemade short bread. Little touches like that were very much appreciated. A really nice room and very friendly owners. We'd stay there again.

Rockstone Cottage really is a great place to stay if you're visiting IOW. Just a short drive from Yarmouth ferry, or the No7 bus will take you virtually door to door (and beyond). Rooms are spotless and beds super comfy. Quiet location. Super brekkie!!
We had a lovely stay and were made to feel welcome, relaxed and well looked after. I can't see how you could go wrong staying here. We would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Room 6 is located on its own on top floor and has plenty room to spread out.

If you want to stay at a friendly, clean and in every respect welcoming B&B on the Isle of Wight, Rockstone Cottage is the perfect choice for you! Professional hosts, tasty breakfasts and a tidy, clean room await you.
Hmmmm and those lovely cakes, a real treat they were!
Very good location, only a short stroll from Colwell Bay, where the most beautiful sunset can be seen on the island...
Highly recommended!
