A warm welcome awaits you at the family run Royson Guesthouse, which sits upon the cliff top in a quiet residential cul-de-sac. The superb views to Sandown Bay and Culver Cliff on the coastal path and the ‘sunshine trail’ walk are a mere two minutes away;- with steps nearby leading you down to our fantastic sandy ‘Hope Beach’ nestled in the sheltered bay offering a wide variety of watersports and safe paddling or swimming!

This is the place to bring your family where memories are made for children of all ages (even the grown up ones!)

Nigel and Sharon pride themselves on offering a ‘home from home’ atmosphere where sandy toes and smiley faces are just everyday life, so don’t forget to bring your slippers!

Ensuring access to rooms at all times so you can come and go as you please…the ethos here is on making sure your stay is one of the very best you’ll ever have!

We love to go the extra mile and are always here to help should you ever need us.

No time do we close, we are open all year round, even for those quick last minute getaways. Also one of the few guesthouses willing to accept one night bookings!
