“Did not like the lodge !!”
Reviewed 22 September 2008

Just come back from a 2 week stay at Westfield Lodge. There were 5 adults and our 2 mini Schnuazer dogs, staying in a 6 berth Lodge.
The brochure and the website looked nice, it ticked all the boxes so decided as we hadn't been to the Isle of Wight before we would stay for 2 weeks.
We arrived and were pleased with the location, it was really nice.
When we were shown to our lodge we thought initially it was just in dire need of a lick of paint on the outside.
Well the inside was no better, the sofa and chairs we really tatty, ripped in places and dirty, the carpet was dirty and matted, and also had cigarette burns on it.
The curtains had come free from the rail in places.
The place smelt damp. The outside furniture had seen better days
The bath had pubic hair in it, the toilet seat had dried poo on the top of it !!! ...then the seat completely broke the second day we were there.
The cups and cutlery all needed washing.
The carpet sweeper wasn't picking up so my father in law decided to clean the sweeper, only to find long dog hair over an inch thick wrapped around the brushes.
The television reception was really bad, said they would bring us a booster arial but didn't get it.
The WI FI didn't work properly, we had to ask everyday for them to reset it.
We lifted the sofa seat cushion and found long dogs hairs and biscuit crumbs underneath it. I reported it to Toby Brading, he didn't apologise, he said he would send someone to "spring clean", I explained the place was cleaner than when we had arrived .
Overall i thought it was a shame the place was so shabby and dirty because it is in a nice setting, maybe the apartments, as they are newer would be more pleasant to stay in, i wish i had only booked for one week.
I would def go back to the Isle of Wight it was lovely, but wouldn't go back to Westfield Lodge.

We have just returned from a lovely short break on the Isle of Wight.

Travelling with young children we needed somewhere with facilities to cater for our family needs and Westfield seemed to tick all the boxes.

We stayed in one of the brand new apartments and it really was a home-from-home.

The kitchen had more than enough utensils, crockery, etc. Plus the usual appliances expected, ie. toaster, kettle, microwave. But a bonus was a washing machine, although I don't think all apartments have one though, so best to check when booking.

The was a spacious lounge and a sofa that converted to a double bed. A lovely balcony with some view of the sea which was lovely to sit out first thing in the morning.

The spacious bedroom had enough storage space and a very comfy bed, just needed after a busy day out round the island.

There is also a fairly big indoor pool plus sauna. We didn't get to use them, but I'm sure they are used a lot, since they are a bonus feature to this property.

The downside is that the apartments are in a secluded area and a car is needed to get out and about, especially for eating out. Not all places in Ventnor were open during the time we were there, therefore, we had to venture out to Shanklin and even Sandown for more of a choice.

Overall a lovely peaceful break, bearing in mind that you need to travel just a bit for restaurants and attractions.

  • Liked — Lovely quiet location and very clean and well maintained apartments
  • Disliked — A little bit secluded so car is essential
