Enjoyed a few days in a second floor apartment. The accommodation might once have been 4 star, but it needs some tlc to bring it back to that star quality. It was an ideal base, but first impressions were that outside of lodges needed a jetwash, apartment block a lick of paint and trees, hedges etc., bit overgrown and needed a tidy up. Sign at the entrance still says Westfield Lodges and Apartments with Riveria logo. It's either one or the other as different logos on welcome pack etc too ??
The accommodation was clean and a nice size for family of 4 - double room and separate room with bunk beds, lounge/diner/kitchenette, with all essential kitchen equipment - however, negatives were little small things that could so easily have been sorted like .... dripping tap in kitchen, handle that fell off kitchen door in my hand, no lightshades, and the sauna in the swimming pool area that had obviously been out of order for some time, as notice saying 'out of order' was faded and tatty. Such a shame as a bit of money spent on keeping this place up together would make a big difference.
However, saying that, the small car parking area - which has a designated numbered space for each apartment (but bit of nightmare to get into and out of) was full during our mid week break, so very popular and especially for people with dogs - unless like us they too where expecting just that little bit more.
Not much in walking distance. Bonchurch village shop etc., has closed down and so only Pond Cafe Restaurant open in evenings and turn right on foot out of apartments and this will lead you down to Bonchurch shore area, turn right again at the sea and follow the sea wall along to Ventnor. This took us about 20/30 mins walk, which was lovely on a sunny day and ended our walk with a drink at the Spyglass Inn.
