The perfect B&B for it's bargain price! I booked late as I had been let down by another place at the last minute, but the Fernside was fantastic.
The single room was perfect for me, very clean and a nice little bathroom attached. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was brilliant!
I still can't believe how cheap it was for the quality. I will definitely stay again!

Located 5 minutes from the seafront this is a great place. Really friendly staff made you feel at home as soon as you checked in. The rooms are really nice with ensuite shower and telly. The breakfast was really hearty and the sausages were lovely. The only detractor for me personally was the beds whilst singles were a bit on the small side. That aside I would recommend this place wholeheartedly. Great value for money and booking over the phone they can help get reduced prices for the ferry adding to the savings even more. Thanks Laurie and Denise for a making a great trip even better.

Thanks for the review. Its always good to know that we've got most of it right.
On the subject of the beds, all of our single beds are the standard 3ft type. We don't go for the smaller 2'6" here. I know that single beds can be a little awkward if you roll over in the night, and I guess from what you're saying you're more used to a double bed each. Unfortunately we don't have room for two double beds in a twin room. As much as we'd love to of course.
That being said, I gather it didn't detract too much from your stay, and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Fernside sometime.
Best regards
Lawrie.

Had a lovely stay at the Fernside, the room was excellent with a TV, slept very well on a comfortable bed. The breakfast was the best I’d had in a long time and the prices were very reasonable. Excellent base for travelling the Isle of Wight as had a car park too. The owners were very friendly and you could tell they were passionate about their business.

Just back from fantastic holiday in the Fernside, Sandown Isle of Wight. Rooms lovely and comfy with all you need. Breakfast to die for. Hosts Lawrie and Denise friendly and attentive. Have been going there for many years and will return.

Room Tip: front rooms on street have big windows to sit and gaze at the world going by.
