“A lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

St Augustine Villa was excellent; spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and a great location. We were made to feel very welcome by Bob and Esme. Lovely breakfast looking out at the fantastic view of the sea. Great for walking along the Esplanade to Bonchurch, to the Botanic gardens or just up the hill to the town centre.

Bob and Esme are excellent hosts. They and their B & B are very relaxing. We highly recommend Room 6 in spite of the stairs! A very spacious and light bathroom/dressing room which leads up to, via another flight of stairs, to a perfect bedroom with triple aspect windows. All spotlessly clean and comfortable - loved the rocking chair! Breakfast is good, we preferred the kippers, boiled and scrambled eggs to the Full English which was disappointing. However, we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a great view

After a great days drive over the island, was a pleasure to come home to St Augustine Villa. Aside from the very small parking available (but free parking on seafront 6pm to 10am) the room and stay was lovely and cosy! Thanks to Esme and Bob.

I booked at the SAV while visiting the Isle of Wight on business. Room was great, sea view was brilliant.

I will be staying again on my next trip.

We stayed at SAV while we were attending the recent Isle of Wight festival. The festival (despite the mud) was wonderful and the overall trip made even better by staying in such a lovely B&B. Esme and Bob were great hosts. The room was delightful and the breakfast plentiful - setting us up for each day at the festival which was a pleasant 20 minute ride away. You could say it was better than camping in the cold, wet and mud - but it really was so much more than that. Highly recommended.

We went to the Isle of Wight festival and decided to book a hotel for the long weekend.
We arrived earlier and our room was ready. We were greeted by Esme, who gave us a very warm welcome.
Our room had a gorgeous sea view and it was comfortable and clean. In front of the 2 windows there were 2 armchairs which made us want to stay the whole weekend sitting by the window and watching the sea and the beach.... Very relaxing....
The breakfast was also very good.
We had a wonderful stay there and will definitively by back....
