Beautiful, quirky and quintessentially British in it's decor, the charm of The Dolphin, recently refurbished and well equipped, will appeal to most. Sit on the sofa, overlook the historic and picturesque Newport Quay and watch the world go by. The calm of the swans and the boats sailing down the River Medina is sure to relax you. Centrally located, Newport town centre is but a few minutes walk away. Yet the peaceful location of The Quay would never suggest you are in the heart of the town.
The space
One double bedroom self contained apartment, that also has a comfortable single day bed (with a second pull out single bed on a wooden trug) in the lounge, along with an additional sofa and armchair. En-suite shower room (optional curtained corridor available from lounge/bedroom to en-suite entrance). Due to the historic nature of this grade two listed converted pub, it is not so suitable for young children, pets or those with mobility issues (due to a narrow staircase/communal area and no garden) The Quay right outside the front door, provides a beautiful place to sit. Top floor views over the stunning Newport Quay. Originally built in 1785, The Dolphin is brimming with period features. Tastefully decorated with heritage colours.
Ideal property for walkers, couples or friends who are looking for a top quality getaway on the beautiful Isle of Wight.

The Quay is a very historical area of Newport. It was once how supplies came to the Island by the boats travelling up the River Medina (which leads back to Cowes and The Solent). There are some fabulous independent shops just round the corner in Holyrood Street. Where you will also find No 1 Holyrood St which serves amazing breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas. The Quay Arts is opposite the Dolphin and it is a hub for the arts with workshops, a theatre, cafe with outside area and numerous evenings and events including music and comedy clubs to name but a few. The Bargeman's Rest is another great music venue pub, just along the river. Beefeater serving a buffet breakfast can also be found along the river path. Burrs restaurant is truly delicious nearby in Lugley St, attracting diners such as Princess Anne.
Seaclose park, the site of the Isle of Wight music festival, is but a short walk away, along the river path.
The Dolphin is in the middle of a network of cycle paths leading either to Cowes or Sandown/Shanklin. Another lovely cycle or walk takes you right along the river path for as far as you want to go, short or long.
Newport is the central Capital town of the Isle of Wight. There are great bus networks taking you all around the Island, which has a wealth of both towns and beautiful countryside/coastal paths.
The Isle of Wight is home to Queen Victoria's Island residence, Osborne House. Carisbrooke Castle (where King Charles I was imprisoned) is another Isle of Wight English Heritage site.

Other things to note:

Discounted 15% off car ferry fares available on request (by email)
Free parking space comes with the property (5 min walk) - Drop off facilities and paid parking available outside the property.

Second floor apartment, narrow stairs/communal area not suitable for a pram or pushchair storage.

Air B and B The Dolphin

By Keith on 21-Jun-2022

Brilliant apartment , great host, good location The apartment was beautifully presented with lovely furnishings. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay . The provided parking space was a bonus Jo was a great communicator and very helpful. She provided milk bread and biscuits which was a very thoughtful touch. Her information folder was extensive and suggested some great places to visit The barge master pub was nice, served good and was only minutes away. The town centre was also only a short walk away We had a lovely stay and wouldn’t hesitate to go back again

Air B and B Review The Dolphin

By Tim on 12-Jun-2022

What an absolutely splendid apartment. Location is fabulous being at the edge of the town centre yet overlooking the river. The accommodation is an experience in itself and thoughtfully designed with everything you need on hand. Overall, a fantastic stay, and big thanks to the hosts who were happy to accommodate our ever changing schedule.

Review of The Dolphin Air B n B

By Hannah Mae on 05-Jun-2022

It was a very delightful experience to stay at Jo’s place. She communicates well and responds to your queries real quick. Location is ideal (Lidl, Morrisons and other shops and restaurants are just close by which only takes about 3 mins to walk); and everything was provided for (toiletries, cookware and cutlery). You will not have a problem when you decide to cook and prepare your meals as everything you need for cooking are there. The place is beautiful and cosy and it makes us want to definitely come back. It is indeed a home away from home. This place is highly recommended when visiting the Isle of Wight as it is located at the center of the island which makes it easier to navigate around and visit different sites. Thanks Jo!
