Our family of 3 plus dog returned to Westfield Lodges and stayed in the same apartment as a year previously. The 4 berth/2 bed ground floor apartment with patio area was comfortable and well equipped and as we remembered. However, a year on, the property is beginning to look in need of some tidying up - the apartment itself was fine although the tiled bathroom floor has numerous cracked tiles so needs replacing, and a lick of paint on the walls wouldn't go amiss. Minor things like a couple of missing lampshades, extractor fan lighting that works, replacing batteries in a wall clock, and buying a couple of table lamps and sorting out dripping taps and replacing the shower screen which leaks on the bathroom floor could all be sorted in a day and would return the accommodation to a good standard. As noted by other reviewers, the outside masonry could do with painting, the grounds tidying up and the sauna in the swimming pool complex which has been out of order for a year repairing, Our apartment had a washing machine so we didn't need to use the communal facilities but 1 of the 4 machines was out of order and another stuck together with tape. At the price we paid for a week, which included the ferry, these are not major gripes but if I had paid £1800 for a fortnight in August I would have been disappointed. The accommodation is within a 20/25 minute walk of Ventnor (along the sea wall), which is great if dry. Bonchurch is quaint (but hilly) and a car to get around is essential. Don't let the comments above put you off going as its a relaxing place to stay, but be prepared for the fact first impressions maybe a bit disappointing.
