Hi we came to stay over at the shanklin hotel for 4 nights. As a family of 4 we were given a family room that was more than comfortable. Immediately we were seen to and helped with our double buggy and suitcase. Obviously we had our hands full. We were very grateful for a warm welcome and tea/coffee facilities in... More

The most welcoming owners with the best breakfast I could ever ask for from a hotel along with clean and tidy rooms with great service from staff, would definitely stay here again and would defiantly recommend to everybody else! The hotel is lovey and vibrant with friendly staff and a welcoming environment, suitable for people of all ages.

Really impressed with this place. Wonderful hosts (great with the kids), cracking breakfast (scrambled eggs were amazing) and tot-proof rooms (and we had the best tester there is). Simple and comfy, giving maximum bang for your bucks. Really handy location, right by Coral Island, so everything easily accesible.
