"Give the Birkdale a try, you won't be disappointed."
We decided to check out the Isle of Wight and chose this B&B based on other's reviews and price. We wanted to see some of the sights around and our hosts were most helpful in that way. They were well acquainted with all the things we were interested in, and in fact gave us ideas. There was an unexpected elegance which we loved, yet it felt very homey at the same time.We found everything quite pleasing and would stay there again. Read less
Likes:
Our hosts were the largest factor in our stay. They made us feel like family. Nothing was too much bother for them.
Dislikes:
I would have liked air conditioning as the nights didn't really cool off the room, and the duvet was quite heavy. But we dealt with it and in fact, could have asked for a lighter covering.
Response from The Birkdale:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope the trip back home to Canada was uneventful. Maybe you may come over again to see us

Likes:
Accommodation was pretty, clean and with comfortable beds. Breakfast good.
As we had problems getting out of London and missed our ferry, the owners were kind enough to wait for our late arrival.
Dislikes:
Small TV, no fridge in the rooms.
I did not know how to contact the owners outside the breakfast hours.
Got a vibe as my sister and I were under 50 and not British we were not extremely welcome.
Response from The Birkdale:
Hi Martina, I'm sorry you felt the guests were aloof but hearing you speak in your native tongue, they may not have realised that you spoke good English. Contact details are in the Information Books in the bedrooms, and also by the front door bells. We may try fridges in the rooms, but the ice packs we put in our freezer for you may not have frozen in a small fridge.
