Everything was perfect

5 of 5
Lesley is a charming host and is full of helpful information as to places to eat and visit. She has worked so very hard to make The Hermitage a wonderful place to stay. It is spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard and is very cosy. Perfect to come back to and relax after a busy day out and about. The beautiful garden is a real sun trap and the veranda perfect to enjoy a bottle of wine and take in the splendid view. Thank you Lesley for a lovely holiday. Looking forward to returning.

PERFECTION

5 of 5
Flat was beautiful, large, a REAL shower (walk in) we never used the other one, well equipped, kitchen had everything we needed, clean, views of English Channel fantastic. Co-op and Tesco within walking distance. Co-op will deliver free if you spend 25 or more. Ventnor a beautiful town and nice and quiet at night. Georgina always got right back to us with any questions we had. She could not have been any nicer to us, a really nice person who takes great pride in her beautiful flat. Lottie who is the cleaner does a great job and was helpful too. We spent a month in this flat and would love to return next year.
