“WONERFUL APARTMENT RUN BY FRIENDLY CARING OWNERS”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This beautiful apartment is situated in a very quiet area and is approximately a 5 minute walk to the thatched village and a 15 minute walk to the beach. The small hotel we have stayed in for the last 12 years had to suddenly cease trading and could not accommodate our pre booked June holiday. We looked at other hotels but at such short notice we were unable to find one that was suitable . Then a couple on the beach suggested the Courtyard. We had a look and booked the only available week that was available in June and it was a wonderful week. The owners Richard and Miriam were so warm and welcoming and the spotlessly clean modern apartment was first class. The highest accolade I can give is that we were so impressed with the apartment, the lovely owners and the location is that we have already provisionally booked the apartment for three separate weeks for 2018.

“First time on the island”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Richard and Miriam made us very welcome on arrival the little things like a homemade sponge which was lovely and tea coffee biscuits etc are very thoughtful and their local knowledge of the island is very helpful and they are more than happy to help you plan your day if you want.they will even book your ferry tickets for you if you require it.
the apartment is fantastic and has everything you could want and more,
Car parking is available all week on the property which is a couple of minutes walk to shanklin village and ten more to the seafront and beach.
We wouldn't hesitate to go again or to recommend to family and friends !

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Just back from this clean and very comfortable apartment where there was everything you needed and more, for a weeks stay. We were made to feel very welcome by Richard and Miriam and the Victoria Sponge, waiting for us on arrival, was delicious. We enjoyed sitting in the garden after a day exploring the island and just relaxing in the pleasant and peaceful surroundings.
The apartment is very close to Shanklin Old Village, a short walk from the shops, pubs, restaurants and a supermarket and conveniently placed for getting around the whole island by bus.
I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at The Courtyard.

“Simply, THE BEST!”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just come back from a wonderful weeks stay at The Courtyard. Well what can I say, it's all the other reviews and more, the little extras highly appreciated, the apartment a REAL home from home. Miriam and Richard, such a lovely couple, so welcoming, really enjoyed chatting to them, they even took time out to talk to our grandson, which made him feel extra special. Last but by no means least THE CAKE! FAB-U-LOUS.

We would highly recommend The Courtyard as a place to stay it is ideally situated to give easy access to the rest of the island, we found The Chequers at Rookley (as suggested by Miriam) a great place to eat (cheaper than home pricewise) and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for children to entertain themselves.

Already looking forward to returning - hopefully will be again this year.

Thank you both.

“Very comfortable stay in pleasant surroundings”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Richard and Miriam were fantastic hosts - welcoming us with the most amazing Victoria Sponge.

The apartment was well-equiped and spacious. Very close to the old part of the town. It felt like a home from home.

“Fantastic! Highly recommend this apartment.”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A perfect location from which to explore the island. A quiet, comfortable and pretty apartment with allocated parking made even better by all the little extras that the owners have very carefully added for guests comfort. The homemade cake was a delisious suprise and we really appreciated the supply of basics (tea, milk, coffee, sauces etc) which were a very welcome addition on arrival. The owners warm and friendly welcome made us feel very at home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If we return to the island we will definately come here again!.

“A little gem of peace and quiet”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I loved my stay at The Courtyard. It is in a lovely quiet location but within a short walk of the town and the beach. It is very secluded and the owners were on hand for a quick chat or to give advice, but were very unobtrusive. I stayed there on my own and felt very safe at all times. The cottage has every amenity you could want, small but well equipped kitchen, nice comfortable bed with a wall mounted tv in the bedroom an added bonus. As other reviewers have mentioned, the cake provided on arrival was tremendous! The garden was absolutely lovely, with a cherry blossom tree providing shade when the sun shone. I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at The Courtyard.
