“How a B&B should be”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I have known Ventnor and the IoW all my life, but Madeira Road - the 'off the beaten track' link between Ventnor and Bonchurch - has always been nothing more than a cut-through. Until now.
This is a really very good B&B indeed. Great rooms (particularly for small families, like ours), friendly service, cleanliness and a great breakfast.
And also that thing that is so difficult to quantify or fabricate - a feeling of being valued as customers, but also left in peace to enjoy the experience as you wish,
A real gem.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are good :-)

We spent a few days visiting Ventnor and the Arts Festival. Cornerways was extremely comfortable and very convenient for the town centre (about 10 minutes pleasant walk). Stewart and Linda are charming and helpful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you need exceptionally dark curtains check with Stewart beforehand. There are rooms with a view o...

Highly recommend this b&b. Lovely very comfortable & quiet rooms, amazing breakfast & very friendly owners. Linda & Stuart make you feel very welcome and look after you well. Good location with easy walk into Ventnor and Bonchurch for amazing restaurants and seafront and with parking. Our second visit & will definitely be back.

This was our third stay at Cornerways - and the second under this ownership. As expected the room was comfortable and clean, and the decoration is appropriate - not too much, but enough to make the room look 'lived in'.

Breakfast here has to be one of the best in a B&B. A good bowl of fruit, wide selection of cereals and the choice of a cooked breakfast, which was of very good quality.

The couple run the hotel are friendly and very easy to get on with, chatting but never imposing. They appeared to recognise us when we turned up - considering our last visit was two years ago and they must have had hundreds of visitors since then this is impressive.

Highly recommended.

Very friendly staff - Stuart and Linda helped us find the best in the local area.
Convenient location, great views looking out to sea from dining room (and some bedrooms).
Think there were about 10 rooms in the B+B, but service was still super quick eg at breakfast.
I did not expect breakfast to be so good. Delicious bowls of fruit as well as the regular stuff, which was really good. (Where was that bacon from - best I've had!).
Our bedroom was a little on the small side (not a "superior") but was really comfortable clean, and recently decorated.
Short walk to town. Ventnor is nice. As is Bonchurch. Try the Bonchurch Inn - great food mmmm, and a nice little walk away.
Had a great stay and would recommend.

Never ever being to the Isle of Wight I have to say that this visit was made memorable by the choice of hotel.
We had the warmest of welcomes from the lovely couple, Linda and Stuart, to the excellent and very large comfortable room (nr 12) with a view worthy of some of the best hotels abroad.
The bed was very large and the bathroom huge and I love the way this older house was so utilised. It has a warm charm that shows that Linda and Stuart actually have put their hearts into it.
Breakfast was a treat and nothing was too much trouble, although I have no complaints at all.
I could go on about the walks here and there, even the stroll that my partner told me would take about 1/2 hour and 1 1/2 hours later we finally got to our destination, ready for a lovely cuppa, but as this is a review of the Hotel lets just say a wonderful place to stay with lovely warm people running the hotel. Keep up the good work and we will be back.
Thank you for making my first visit to this island such a memorable one.

Room Tip: the hotel was quiet and sunny but our room (nr 12) was large quiet sunny and very comfortable

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights over the Easter weekend. It is such a lovely place to stay, all the staff are really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They were always happy to answer our questions and recommend places to eat/visit. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Super breakfasts every day, what a great place to stay.
