A very enjoyable and comfortable stay in a well appointed property. Perfect location, close to the sea and with a coffee shop just round the corner. Very good food at 'The Woodvale', family run and overlooking the sea - worth booking to save disappointment.

Pretty little seaside house in great location. Thoughtfully presented and equipped. Comfy beds! Thoroughly enjoyed our few days here. We have stayed in several properties managed by Classic. These have always been of high standard and delighted to say Solentview is too.

This is a great little cottage with a lovely garden. It is very clean and well equipped. It is about 5 minutes walk from the sea, although uphill on the way back! You can walk along the coast to Cowes in about 30 mins. It is easy to park in the street. We enjoyed our stay.

We had an absolutely fabulous stay at Solent View Cottage, which far exceeded our expectations! The cottage was spotless and had every facility we needed for a really relaxing stay. The garden was a real bonus - perfect for relaxing in the sun. The location is perfect for exploring the local area by foot - a walk along the seafront to Cowes is a must. We fell in love with the Isle of Wight and would definitely stay at Solent View Cottage again - excellent value for money!

An ideal location for exploring the Island, and a very comfortable house that's well kitted out. Loved the sea views and garden. Would highly recommend.

So wonderful to finally be able to have a decent selection of lovely places to stay on the isle of wight. Will definitely use again.

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us have your thoughts and we do hope we can welcome you back soon. Tressa, Customer Support

Unfortunately the property location and garden are the only positives I can say about this cottage. The lack of cleanliness was disgraceful, especially given the times we are living in. There was also a lack of basic necessities such as toilet roll and bin bags. The stairs are steep and dangerous so not suitable for children. I would not recommend this cottage.

We're so sorry that you were disappointed with the cleanliness at Solent View Cottage. However we're really grateful that you contacted us immediately and we were able to put this right for you with a new housekeeping team who cleaned the property again and fogged for you. The property has since been inspected, deep cleaned once again, a new housekeeper is in place and we have included more photos of the stairs for future reference. Bryony, Customer Support

A great little property with direct access to the beach (maintained by the neighbour). Perfect location for walking into Cowes and a good pub nearby. The property is well equipped and warm, with little added extras for the kids such as books and a few toys.

Ideally located cottage however a much higher standard of cleanliness is expected than that provided. Be advised that the steps advertised to the beach are NOT safe to be used.

The cottage although comfortable needs a deep clean and a bit of tlc both inside and out.
