This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Noisy, smelly, dirty and extremely over priced and overrated. There were stains on the towels (anyone's guess what they were), no mattress or pillow protectors, generally dirty and unkempt and seriously needed an overhaul.When I inspected the pillow out of its case, it was yellow. To compensate for lack of mattress... More

We've just returned from a 5-day break staying at The Shanklin Beach Hotel. If you're not looking for luxury - and looking for a hotel on a budget then this is a great hotel. We had a fabulous room - overlooking the ocean - with our own little balcony. We just felt that this hotel really just needs to 'up... More

We have returned from a four day stay at this hotel. 25/07/15 - 30/07/15. I checked the place out on Trip Advisor and the reviews gave me food for thought. On arrival I couldn't see what all the fuss had been about. Just about everywhere was well (and seemingly recently) decorated. It would appear the establishment is a work in... More

Stopped at the Shanklin beach hotel for 4 days (end of July). Rooms were very small, typical of a business that is trying to cram as many costumers in as possible. The view from our room was poor.(car park) Toilet was facing shower and about 15 inches away from it. The bi-fold shower doors were difficult for even the slimmest... More

I was disappointed in this hotel, but i guess it reflects its 2 stars. The room was basic and badly needed to be brought up to date. I felt the whole place was needing to be upgraded badly. Not a hotel for children as most guests are elderly there on budget coach holidays. The food was below standard . Staff... More

This is a 2 star hotel so dont expect the ritz. What you can expect is a decent bed changed daily and fresh towels. Also friendly and hard working staff. Decent food and a great location opposite the beach. Thanks.

We were treated to a 4 day 3 night break with friends and to be honest did not expect much for the budget price we paid. However what a lovely surprise the Hotel which is overlooking the sea (lucky us seaview), was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful nothing seemed too much trouble. As for the food we had...
