The apartment is great. Even though we were only two, we both appreciated two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped, nothing missing. And - Simeon Arms, a nice and friendly pub, is located right behind the house. In addition to the fact that the apartment is central to both the city and the beach, it is nevertheless good located for exploring the whole island, even for those of us who come without a car. The bus system is well developed and the buses have quite frequent departures. In addition, there are trains. By bus from Esplanade you will easily reach both Freshwater or Yarmouth, Ventnor or Cowes, yes, the buses take you to all parts of the island. So, you have the possibilities to walk much of the coastal path from different points of departure. Ryde has many restaurants, Michelangelo's is worth a visit, but if you want to experience a really gourmet dinner, you book at Thompson's in Newport - a truly exquisite experience. We had a great week at Ryde and appreciated the apartment! Should we wish something, the bathrooms should have fitting rail to the shower head. Then we could adjust the height of the shower. No one under 175 cm can control the shower head.
