Hotel Description

Probably the most photographed building on the Island due to its stunning sea location. We specialise in luxury bed and breakfast only... town and award winning restaurants are within easy walking distance. Each room is tastefully decorated, most have excellent sea views and their own arm chair / settee sitting area, making it ideally suited for couples who prefer a comfortable long stay in a relaxed atmosphere not dictated by conventional tight hotel schedules... breakfast for instance is at any time between 8am and 10am. Although rooms have all the conveniences of modern living like being fully en-suite, having coffee and tea making facilities and free wi-fi they are decorated in a tasteful manner befitting of this Victorian period building of historical importance. Queen Victoria adored the Isle of Wight and the view looking down upon the Italianate architecture of St Augustine Villa and its coastline fondly reminded Prince Albert of his previous holidays in the Mediterranean and prompted them to instruct the royal architect to build Osborne House in the same style. Excellent coastal walks in both directions. Free on site car parking.

Large And Comfortable With A Great View Out To Sea.
We stayed for 2 nights using it as a base to travel around the island. The building is a large Victorian villa, there is a small car park. The hotel overlooks the sea and its worth paying for a room with a sea view. Our deluxe room was large and comfortable with a great view out to sea. There is free WiFi and Sky TV. During our stay the hotel couldn’t provide breakfast but they did let us know beforehand, it wasn’t a problem to us. The two owners were very nice people and helpful. Point to note is that there are step stairs to the rooms so it may not be suitable for people who are not very mobile.

This is a fantastic review. Thank you and, we would look forward to seeing you again.

Clean And Comfortable
Location is good and affordable. Within walking distance to the waterfront. Check in was easy. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Towels, hair dryer, mini fridge, coffee-tea making facilities, bottled water are provided. On every floor there is a room with ironing facilities, so no worries about that crumpled shirt or pants. The buffet breakfast spread is not a wide range but enough to fill our stomachs. And tasty too. So for the budget conscious traveller who wants a comfortable room to sleep in so he can be energised for the next day's tour, Harbour View Hotel is a good choice.

Thank you for your lovely review

Exellent Location And Service
we stayed for 4 nights, we chose this hotel due to the reviews and location. the hotel has an old feel to it, but the rooms are very spacious and modern. Breakfast was very good and the service was brilliant. onsite parking and a stroll up the hill to the little town or down the hill to the esplanade. nice restaurants nearby and a nice pub at the end of the esplanade. good location for visiting other parts of the island too.

3 Night Stay
Stayed in the Tower Room - wonderful views. Both room and ensuite bathroom below very neat and clean. Good breakfast, which was served in the conservatory, that also has lovely sea views.

Would definitely stop again.

As Good As Ever
We have stayed here a few times over recent years and our experience has been consistently good - our visit a few days ago was no exception. Esme and Bob are very welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts. Breakfasts served in the conservatory are great with wonderful views out to sea. We always choose a sea facing room and as with the conservatory the views out over Ventnor harbour are superb. Lying in bed with the sounds of the sea coming in through the windows is most relaxing.

A Warm Welcome
Without doubt I would stay here again. You will get a very warm welcome from Esme and Bob, the owners, who have a lovely home. The rooms are very comfortable with everything you need and there is so much choice at breakfast,freshly cooked when you come down. The view is stunning so an ideal location to boot.

My Weekend Stay
Best welcome I have ever had.

The owner actually came to the door in the middle of the night and called me by my name. Wow !!!

First time I felt at home away from home.

I think its the best place to stay on the island.

I recommend St Augustine Villa for beautiful room, well decorated and comfort. Better then some large hotels

Short Stay At St Augustine Villa
We stayed for three nights and were blessed with wonderful weather for our short stay in Ventnor.

The room was really lovely and the sea views from the bedroom windows were stunning. It was great just sitting by the window and staring out to sea.

Esme was a great host and very attentive at breakfast time. It was a great base for visiting other parts of the island,either through the lovely walks or via the great bus service. Also Steephill Cove is about thirty-minutes walk from the hotel and not to be missed.Would definitely recommend staying at St Augustine.
