“A beautiful property”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Me, my husband, best friends, their son and the dogs all stayed here in total for 2 weeks over Christmas 2015.
Everything everyone rights is correct, from the lovely bedrooms and kitchen to the great views and location. It is a 15 minute walk to the Bandstand on the beach, and less to some of the great pubs, like the Spyglass.
The house is warm and inviting. We played games, did jig-saw puzzles and enjoyed travelling around the I of W despite the weather.
A lovely relaxing and peaceful stay.

“Lovely Place, Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

As first-time visitors to Isle of Wight (and in January), we weren't quite sure what to expect. My first booking was for our accommodations her in Ventnor and we were very pleased with the result. The booking agent was very helpful, especially when he realized that we were foreign travelers and required a non-standard payment method. The information sent to us prior to arrival was prompt and accurate.

The house was clean and ready upon our arrival. We had five people in our party, and there was ample room both in the living spaces and in the bedrooms. The view looking out over the English Channel was worth the price of admission all by itself. The kitchen was well-stocked and ready to go.

We stayed here for three nights and traveled a good portion of the island during our stay. Ventnor was a convenient base-of-operation. We also sincerely appreciated the owners calling us while we were to make sure we had what we needed.

I would certainly recommend Gills Cliff House wholeheartedly if you are considering a stay on the island. Thanks so much for sharing a lovely home!!

“Mr”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in this fantastic property for a long weekend. Well what can I say other than it was beyond our expectations. We were so impressed with the property from its cleanliness to facilities. All of the rooms were out of this world but the room at the top is breathtaking with views over expanding sea and blue sky. We did not want to leave and felt so relaxed. Everything you need is in the property. 5*''s from us. Will be back for sure and longer next time.

“Simply stunning”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was a short break with friends.
House immaculate. Rooms tastefully furnished. Kitchen impressively kitted out. Bedrooms large and spacious. Large bedroom with ensuite at the top of house particularly lovely.
The real bonus was seen the following morning. Stunning views of the sea. The decking area was lovely and we were able to sit out for breakfast as well as lunch.
Ventnor is hilly but we were all aware of this. The walk into the town center takes about 10mins. Great little tapas restaurant to be found on the high street. Also some great coastal walks.
Overall a impressive place to stay.
