Choosing The Best Bed And Breakfast On The Isle Of Wight

When visiting the Isle of Wight, you will have a number of brilliant accommodation options to choose from, yet one of the most popular has to be a bed and breakfast. This traditionally British type of accommodation has been the first-choice for many visiting the island for decades now and there are a number of benefits to opting for a B&B over any of the other types of accommodation available.


These days, due to their popularity, there are so many different bed and breakfasts on the Isle of Wight and there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. No matter what you’re looking for in this regard, you really will be spoilt for choice. So, to help anyone who isn’t sure where to even start when narrowing down the many options available, below we have put together some information that you may find helpful.


The location of the bed and breakfast

Whenever you’re booking Isle of Wight accommodation, one of the first things you should think about is whether you’d like to be in the countryside or on the coast. Of course, the island is known for both its Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it’s sandy beaches, so think about where you’d prefer to be located.

If you’d like to be nestled in the countryside, take a look at somewhere like Buttercup House which is a 5 minute walk to Tennyson Down and if you’d like to be on the seafront, take a look at somewhere like Snowdon House which is a 3 minute walk from Shanklin beach.


Who you’re booking the accommodation for

As always, when you’re considering the best place to stay, you need to take into consideration who you’re booking a bed and breakfast on the Isle of Wight for. In addition to a standard B&B that is perfect for the whole family, there are some adult-only options, like The Leconfield, and even some dog-friendly options too.

In addition to thinking about who you’re booking for, also think about the type of room that you need. Some bed and breakfasts will offer double rooms, twin rooms and family rooms, whereas others might not have as many options to choose from.


What you’re wanting to do on the island

When you’re choosing a bed and breakfast on the Isle of Wight, you should also think about what your holiday is likely to entail. Whilst the island is known for being small enough that you can explore it all no matter where you stay, it is always useful to stay close to the things you want to do and places you want to see.

Some B&B’s like the Ivy Hall Bed and Breakfast are situated on the North East coast near Ryde and Newport, whereas others like the Cornerways are on the South East coast near Ventnor, they really are all over the island. So, think about where your perfect base would be.


The dining options at the bed and breakfast

Of course, as their name suggests, bed and breakfasts are an accommodation option that includes one of your main meals; your breakfast. So, it goes without saying that you should always look into the breakfast options offered by different B&B’s before you decide which you’re going to book. After all, if you’re paying for it, you want to ensure that you’re going to enjoy it.

You may also find that some bed and breakfasts are similar to hotels in the sense that they have restaurants rather than informal dining areas and they offer other meals too, like The Clifton Guesthouse that also offers cream teas.


Deciding which bed and breakfast on the Isle of Wight to book

There really are a number of brilliant bed and breakfasts here on the island and you shouldn’t struggle to find one that ticks all of your boxes. Hopefully, by thinking about everything mentioned above, you will find it slightly easier to narrow down your options and choose a bed and breakfast that is perfect for your holiday. Of course, you could always stay in a couple of different B&Bs if you wanted to, so bear this in mind.
