We stayed for Christmas as part of a Robinson's coach trip and stayed in room 207 and our friends in 208. When we booked we were not given the option of a sea view and our rooms overlooked the car park, however it being winter and us not being in the rooms much it didn't matter. The room was large...

Hotel room was lovely, on first floor with a sea view. Plenty of hanging space and an adequate bathroom. However when we arrived at 5.30p.m. the room had no heating on and was decidedly chilly. We went down for dinner at 6.30p.m. and advised the receptionist that there was no heating and she said she would get it sorted. On... More

We booked a holiday with National holidays to the isle of wight on the 20th of October 2014.The journey down was a little different due to the amount of roadworks on our motorways,the driver of the coach was Peter and he made the journey interesting and had some funny stories to tell everyone which was great considering the pressure he...

Just come back from a weekend breakaway trip to IOW and stayed at this hotel as it offered car ferry ticket. Have done these trips before and found these cheap hotels a bit of a disaster but was pleasantly surprised by the service and standard of this hotel. The rooms may need a bit of tlc but they were comfortable... More

We had a lovely sea view room with large balcony. The bathroom was a little small. The staff here are great and couldn't be more helpful. The bar has a nice atmosphere and is good value with a pool table. We weren't part of the many coach parties which use the hotel but they helped to bring a lively atmosphere... More

The hotel was OK, but needed updating. The staff were excellent and the food was adequate. Shower and toilet in room needed to be modernised. I was not very impressed by the evening entertainment. Overall it was good value for money

This Hotel is in a prime position on the sea front at Shanklin - shame it does not live up to its position. Staff do what they can with what is available. Our room was small, dark and at the back of the Hotel so no sea view. We had all paid the same amount but rooms differed considerably. The... More
