St. Augustine Villa
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in Ventnor
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We booked this hotel after reading all the reviews on Tripadvisor but found it failed to live up to its reputation.
Whilst we appreciate it is a very old building the interior decor and fittings left a lot to be desired - tatty furnuture in our rooms, small very old fashioned televisions, odd light bulbs and fittings etc.
As for the breakfast we were very disappointred. Several reviews claimed this was magnificent but we found it to be only satisfactory.
To add insult to injury the biscuits in the hospitality basket in our bedroom were 10 months out of date!!!
We thought there was a severe lack of attention to detail and would only consider this hotel to be very average and nothing special.
Beware of being swayed by the details and photographs on the website.

I have visited this charming hotel many times, most recently a few weeks ago, and I just love staying there. The owners are so friendly and make you feel at home. The view from the hotel is magnificent and the food top class. The town of Ventor is a joy to visit.

I cannot recommend St Augustine Villa highly enough.

Room Tip: Book as far in advance as possible, and make sure you state your requirements at the time of booking...

We have been visiting Ventnor for over 10 years. It is a lovely place to relax away from the busier parts of the island. Ventnor has a micro climate of its own, probably why it has a botanical gardens growing some plants seen in hotter countries. I thoroughly recommend staying at St. Augustine Villa. It has the best location in the town with views over both the harbour and the beach. Bob and Esme made our stay a pleasure again. Can't wait till next year.

Unlike some of the hotels and BnB`s advertised in Ventnor the St Augustine is everything they say it is and more, my wife and myself have just spent a wonderfull, peaceful and relaxing few days there and would well recommend staying there to anybody. The hosts were very helpfull, friendly and a real nice couple to chat to.The rooms were imaculate and the sea view from our room was absolutely stunning.All this made our wedding anniversary and my wife`s birthday one to remember, we will definately stay there again Ian and Trudy Birmingham 8/5/13
