Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kingsmede b& b is a period house dating to the late 1700,s Inside the property Chris the owner has kept the furnishings to that period, with a large double bed very comfortable, en suite toilet and large 🚿. The room is quite big with windows to front and side, very clean throughout everything you would need is provided , iron , hairdryer etc, there is a fridge situated on the landing for your use ,also a variety of snacks and soft drinks available to purchase with a honesty box, large rear garden , ample on site parking, breakfast is large and cooked to perfection with a wide and varied choice all locally sourced. The area of Whitwell is designated a dark sky area ,but also quite close to Ventnor and other coastal areas , a charming village with lots of thatched roofs. The local pub The white horse is also worth a visit the food is excellent, with a good choice of ales, both my wife and I were made to feel very welcome , and we would honestly recommend staying here.

Welcoming and friendly hosts and a great breakfast. The kingsize bed was really comfortable and the room was lovely and quiet - we stayed in the Butterfly room which has dual aspect windows to the front and side. Loved that there was a fridge outside the room with fresh milk and drinking water and that there was no plastic packaging on the tea tray. There was the possibility of seeing red squirrels in the garden, although we didn't see any during our stay. The garden is also great for stargazing where you can see hundreds of stars and just about see the Milky Way on a clear night. The only downside was that I think there may have been a leak in the bathroom as it smelled of damp. Great value at £80 for 2 people including breakfast and free off-road parking. The pub nearby was good for dinner and had lots of boardgames for rainy days.

Excellent in every way. We spent a lovely week here at 'Kingsmede'. Chris and Kelly were the perfect hosts and made us feel genuinely welcome from the minute we arrived. There was a good choice at breakfast and their 'full English' was of generous proportion using all locally-soured ingredients. The location of Kingsmede was also perfect for exploring the south coast with private parking and a really good pub serving evening meals just 2 minutes walk away . Thanks ! A great stay. D and G.

We really enjoyed our stay at Kingsmede. It’s much more characterful than the photos on the booking site suggested with an interesting history & period features. Our spacious clean room (Red Squirrel) overlooked the lovely gardens. Chris is a friendly & helpful host, welcoming our dog with treats. He provided a lovely breakfast featuring local produce & home made marmalade. The mini fridge on the landing with glass decanters of milk and water for each room made a lovely change from UHT in plastic pots. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent, homely stay! Had an amazing time with our hosts after finding this little hidden gem on a booking site. The property has lots of character, the hosts are lovely, and the rooms cosy, well appointed and also full of character and warmth. Little touches were taken care of, with a mini fridge for milk and water for every room at the top of the stairs and a wonderful breakfast. The pub in the village made for a gorgeous dinner stop, as recommended by our hosts. Definitely recommend Kingsmede, we’ll be back again!

A very quiet & peaceful stay, the room is great with an excellent view of the gardens, the bed was comfy and enjoyed breakfast which is a mixture of cooked breakfast, cereals, yogurts etc. A good place to stay after a long day exploring the Island.

Chris is a very welcoming host whose relaxed manner conceals the considerable thought, care and effort that has gone into making this such a comfortable place to stay. Excellent scrumptious breakfasts including gluten free options. A lovely visitors' lounge, large garden and good location.
