  • "There were lots of useful information notices in the flat."

    The double bed was crammed into the bedroom so it was difficult to sidle past and get in it from both sides for those people who have any restricted mobility. All of the trip hazards in the threshold of every door were clearly marked which was helpful. I could see one trip hazard that could be easily rectified - the uneven floor at the bottom of the bathroom steps could be made even very simply. I accept the other trip hazards were just part of the quirky nature of the flat conversion.

    You are probably aware that the Sykes website mentions (on two separate occasions) that the property "may not be suitable for people who have mobility issues", but we thank you for highlighting this issue again for potential guests. Thank you also for mentioning the information notices displayed around the flat. We always try our best to inform our guests. Despite all the changes of level, we hope you enjoyed your stay. Thanks once again for your comment. Property Owner

  • "We had a great week."

    The property was small, but clean and covered all our needs.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, which were very much appreciated. It's always lovely to hear from guests who have enjoyed the property as much as we have. We rarely get feedback, so thank you for taking the trouble to do that. We would love to have you back next year. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "We felt the Studio was compact, but had everything we needed - the kitchen was particularly well equipped, everything was arranged to best advantage of the available space and it was nice and clean throughout."

    I think it should be clear that there are 37 steps up to The Studio - one last obstacle to climb after navigating the hills of the island! Personally, I would have liked a SMART TV to make viewing Netflix etc easier, but we managed fine with a laptop. Finally, to improve - the chest of drawers in the bedroom is really shoddy and should be replaced at the first opportunity!

    We are very grateful for your helpful and constructive comments about the Studio. We actually agree with all of your observations and we intend to make the necessary changes when we are back down on the island in November. These improvements should hopefully all be in place for the start of the new 2022 holiday season. Thank you again. Property Owner

  • "After First booking with Sykes Holidays last year 2020 in a beautifll cottage in the lake district at Ambleside ."

    .which we found Amazing , the whole experience was top notch , to the extent that i reccomended it to All my family and Friends to look it up . upon this recent experience ...Alas i must strongly point out that this stay at the studio Ventnor was an embarrasment for your company ...It was Dirty ...and i will include photos if required... the cleaning services that you employ did not fullfill there duties the extent that that WE...had to give it a clean over before we dare use it ...

    :I was very surprised to learn that Mr Moulden recently left us this feedback, particularly as the issue he raised was cleanliness. It is very difficult for me to respond to his comments as I genuinely feel that we are very fortunate to have such an amazing team of cleaners, who have worked very hard for us, and who have consistently achieved good feedback from customers. All I know is that the cleaning team have assured me that they cleaned the apartment to the same standard as usual and this was checked by a supervisor not long before Mr Moulden arrived. Given that we generally receive positive feedback (particularly for cleanliness), it's very difficult to understand why different customers perceive the same property in such different ways.We have never attempted to have the best holiday property on the island, but we do try very hard to provide good value for money, and I believe we have achieved that. The Studio has consistently received good feedback from customers, yet despite its prime location, it is among the least expensive 2-bed holiday properties on the island.Anyway, I have passed Mr Moulden's comments onto our cleaning team and I have asked them to raise their game (even further) for future guests. I believe our response is very fair and balanced and I would be very grateful if you could publish it in its complete entirety. Property Owner

  • "A clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment."

    Although centrally located The Studio was extremely quiet with a beautiful seaview. Owing to high demand and staff shortages this season we would advise others to check restaurant opening times and book in advance.

    Thank you for your kind comments. Thank you also for your sensible advice to future customers. Hopefully the staff shortages in local restaurants will have been resolved by next season. Property Owner

  • "Ventnor is a lovely little seaside town, and this apartment takes full advantage of its wonderful sea views."

    It is well located for shops, restaurants, pubs and beaches, and despite its central location, it is incredibly quiet. The apartment is clean and comfortable, and although the individual spaces are quite small, the open plan layout and the high ceilings give the interior a nice airy feel. The chandelier lights provide a lovely finishing touch. The apartment as a whole has everything you would need for a well deserved holiday. We had a great time and will definitely return.

    Thank you for your very kind comments. We would love to have you back again. Property Owner

  • "Blessed with Fab weather so every morning the view out to sea was beautiful, the light was amazing."

    Everywhere we ate in Ventnor was good and all were friendly. Recommend leaving the car where it is one day and have a good look around Ventnor as very historical..and Hilly!! Steephill Cove worth the walk, and then bus out to the east..drop down through the Devils Chimney and along the landslip to find yourself on the seafront for a lovely level walk back and a sundowner in the Winter Gardens. Very comfortable apartment.

The property

A character second floor coastal apartment in the central conservation area of the Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight.

Set in a great coastal location, this is a delightful apartment for couples looking for a romantic break to explore the wonders of the Isle of Wight.

Once inside, you will notice the breathtaking views of the coast from the large south-facing window.

The lobby is first on entry with the well-equipped kitchen off it.

Next door is the sitting room which has a sofa and dining table and chairs, making it an ideal place to relax after a full day exploring the wonderful area, as well as a double bedroom to round off the property.

There is plenty of storage throughout, with a separate coat hanging area or somewhere to store beach equipment.

Five minutes’ walk from the apartment takes you to Ventnor Beach which boasts a lovely sand and shingle beach and excellent facilities for watersports, with the harbour selling a good range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood.

A good variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit.

There are plenty of coastal paths to enjoy, and at the end of the day you could enjoy a splendid meal at The Royal Hotel, for something different.

A little further along the coastal path is the Steephill Cove, the perfect beach for swimming and where you will find quaint cottages, cafes and a restaurant selling fresh locally caught crab and lobster.

There is so much to see and do on the Isle of Wight including a visit to the Needles Adventure Park with its shopping centre, tea rooms and 9-hole golf course.

The Studio is a great property to enjoy the Isle of Wight at any time of the year.

Please note: There are steps inside the property and may not be suitable for people who have mobility issues.

About the location


Newport 10 miles; Cowes 15 miles.

The quaint Victorian seaside resort of Ventnor is located at the southern end of the island and accessed via an array of steep winding roads set amidst beautiful scenery. Sheltered by St. Boniface Down, one of the island's highest points and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming town has a uniquely mild micro climate enabling tropical and exotic plants to grow throughout the area. The gently sloping sandy and fine shingle beaches and coves provide excellent facilities for watersports and offer a range of stunning coastal paths to explore, while the harbour sells a broad range of fresh fish and locally-caught seafood. A good variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants line the esplanade, whilst the Botanical Gardens are within easy reach and well worth a visit. With plenty to see and do around the island for all the family, including great walking and cycling opportunities, medieval castles, historic houses and a variety of gardens and waterfalls, as well as the unspoilt fishing bay, this great holiday destination has plenty to offer all year round, and it's easy to see why it's known as the prettiest place on the Isle of Wight.
