This charming ground floor apartment sits in an elevated position above Ventnor on the Isle of Wight, sleeping two people in one bedroom.

Room@theTop is a delightful ground floor studio apartment set in an elevated position above Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. With one king-size double bedroom with sitting area, the apartment can sleep two people. There is also a shower room plus a dressing room with kitchen and dining area. Outside is a balcony with furniture boasting beautiful sea views, plus off road parking for one car. Room@theTop offers couples a lovely, romantic hideaway from which to spend time beside the beautiful south coast of the Isle of Wight.


We had a really warm welcome on arrival and were shown everything we needed. The view from the french widow in the bedroom, looking over the balcony, really was stunning. Watching the boats sailing by was a great pastime. There is everything you need there for 2 people. Cooking facilities could be considered to be limited- but we used the microwave and toaster- ther rest of the time we ate out or brought food in. The house is well positioned for travelling around the area. I was not brave enough to walk down- relying on my skills to back us on to the road and away down the Zig Zag Road. You can link with the main route or smaller routes by turning left or right at the top of the road. Access is good- although if you have mobility issues there is one small step up to the from door and one slightly larger step down into the property. Wifi very good and the television/sky/dvd is a bonus. A good rental- try it

this is a really nice place to stay in ventnor, with your own parking space just outside your door, inside its light and spacious, from the bedroom there is an outstanding sea view, the owners are so friendly and helpful, there if you need them. there was milk and orange juice in the fridge, and chocs and port in the bedroom along with other nice extras, the owners really do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable.

We weren't disappointed with our stay at Room @ The Top - perched high above Ventnor, the bedroom balcony gave us a breathtaking view over the town and out across the English Channel. The studio apartment is decorated to a very high and tasteful standard throughout, with plenty of wardrobe space for hanging and storing clothes. The bathroom has a lovely shower. The bed is king-size and very comfortable. Cooking facilities are a little limited, with a portable double electric hob and a microwave (i.e. no cooker), but there are plenty of places to eat out nearby! There's a fridge, toaster and kettle provided. What makes the Room @ The Top extra special is the attention to detail provided by the owners: welcoming gifts included tea bags, milk, breakfast cereal, some port and chocolate peanuts - and there's free wi-fi, which is very handy if your mobiles can't get a signal there - which ours (Vodafone) couldn't - and the Sky HD box (non-recordable) and fair-sized TV in the bedroom is also a bonus if you prefer to stay in during the evening. The off-road parking, right outside the front door, is also very welcome. All in all, Room @ The Top is well worth checking out if you plan to spend some holiday time on the Isle of Wight. Highly recommended.

The apartment was excellent. The view from the veranda was breathtaking. I am happy to recommend to anyone wishing to stay on the Isle of Wight.
Mr Chapman

Excellent accommodation, lovely views from the balcony/bedroom. The hosts were very helpful if needed but kept a low profile also. Super walks to Ventnor and excellent bus service to enable access around the island. Excellent information available at accommodation and in town of places to see and how to get there; altogether a great week.
