We had a week at Shanklin Beach Hotel during a heatwave so thoroughly enjoyed our balcony room with sea views. The bathroom was rather small with very little space between the loo and bath. The restaurant served an average breakfast and very limited menu in the evening (I have not been offered Florida Salad as a starter since the 1970's!)... More

Jacklyn118, thank you for your comments. The weather during your stay was exceptional and remains that way. This has been a challenging year for us due to the severe damage to the building during the winter. However we strive to offer something for everyone and whilst our offer is not always everyone's "cup of tea" my team try and deliver... More

Great location- perfect for families.We had a lovely room on the first floor with a balcony and sea view. The en-suite shower room was very modern. Fabulous customer service from receptionist- Shelley,who really did go the extra mile, but all the staff were lovely. Breakfasts were excellent and evening meals quite acceptable. Evening entertainment not to our taste but other... More

We were on a 5 day break with National Holidays (great driver Peter). Plus points - friendly staff, good location right across from the beach, clean and tidy. Food reasonable, Negative points - thin walls so that you could hear your neighbours conversations quite clearly! We were allocated room 123 on first floor at the back overlooking carpark. Small but... More

Thank you for your comments. It has been a challenging year for the hotel as we lost the majority of our roof during the severe weather at the start of the year, which stopped the major plan of refurbishments. Whilst every guest seeks a seaview room with a patio we only have a limited amount and these were all of... More

We were booked for two nights. The first room we seemed like we had been transported back to the 1970's, and although clean, would have benefited by having a headboard for the bed. There was a nasty greasy hair stain on the wall behind each pillow. The room looked out onto the back car park and I was kept awake... More

Thank you for your comments. Whilst we strive to offer the highest standards to each and every guest, we fully understand that sometimes we do miss the mark. We had planned a full hotel refurbishment at the start of 2014 to address the comments that you have made, however, as you would have been advised at check-in, during the winter... More

We stayed here last week on a coaching holiday with National Travel. It is in an excellent position across the road from the beach. The bedrooms do need updating but the owners are in the process of doing this. We stayed on a bed, breakfast and dinner option. It was a full English breakfast. The dinner menu offered a choice...

What a great holiday we have just had in this Hotel. Can honestly say it couldn`t have been better. The hotel was spotlessly clean, food good , service excellent.
