Isle Of Wight reviews

  • "Great trip despite the weather "

    Despite the stormy weather our ferry was on time and all the staff were really helpful and friendly. Only downside was the Wightlink website going down just when we needed to find out the impact of the storm on our journey.

  • "Day Trip to IOW"

    Staying in Bucklers Hard, the obvious ferry to choose for an Isle of Wight day trip was the Lymington/Yarmouth ferry. The 10am/5pm timing was perfect for a day exploring the island, taking in a tour of Osborne house. Both crossings were excellent - comfortable with a good bar service and reasonable pricing.
