What a delightful and charming B&B this is. Every small detail taken care of, from the excellent hospitality/ beverage tray including homemade cake to the mini fridge just outside the room door with fresh milk (fridge outside room I presume to prevent any disturbance from very slight noise coming from fridge) Our room was spotless with any possible need taken...

We knew we would love Rosemary, the revues are so good, we were made very welcome by Marilyn and Alan, everything was perfect and nothing was lacking. Great breakfasts, lovely room and many extras. We wouldn't look any further if returning to Shanklin, as there would be no point. Also good to know they are open year round. A good... More

We returned to Rosemary last week, after a four-year gap, taking two friends with us. We were delighted to find the place just as we remembered it: comfortable, well-equipped rooms, great breakfasts, high standards of cleanliness and, above all, the loveliest hosts you could wish to meet. Alan and Marilyn make you feel incredibly welcome, from the moment you arrive.... More

We selected Rosemary B&B solely on the basis of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We stayed for nine nights in early July 2014 and were not disappointed. Marilyn and Alan are lovely people and provide first class accomodation, they go that 'extra mile' to make this one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at. We really enjoyed... More

Marilyn and Alan are most welcoming and made us feel comfortable and were very accommodating .The breakfast was brilliant plenty of choice and there were plenty of refreshments in the bedroom it was spotlessly clean and we will certainly go back again . The island is a lovely place... More
