What a wonderful place Hermie is!

5 of 5
Firstly Ventnor is a unique and fabulous place to visit. The accommodation (Hermie) covers everything you would need for a break, and to a high standard. The view from the veranda is something from a postcard, and a real sun trap. Lesley (owner) is lovely and on hand to help with advice about things to do and places eat/drink. Highly recommended.

Comfortable, immaculately clean apartment close to amenities.

5 of 5
This is a lovely apartment which provided us with a comfortable retreat at the end of each day of our holiday. It is close to all amenities that Ventnor has to offer. The town is, like many other British seaside resorts, a little faded in places but there are many beautiful spots within easy reach and great opportunities for walking which was the main focus of our holiday. The surrounding area is very hilly so you need to have a reasonable level of fitness. There are several eateries of all types in the town. We particularly enjoyed The Bistro on Pier Street and The Bonchurch Inn though speed of service at the latter is a little slow. A little further afield, The Buddle Inn at Niton has a picturesque setting, The Needles are a scenic wonder with plenty to occupy you and Osborne House is well worth going to. We only had a week but could have spent much longer.
