We stayed the Easter weekend at the Isle of Wight and this hotel was fabulous. The owners go out of the way to unobtrusively make a stay in their hotel as pleasant as possible, right from booking to checkout. Within 15 minutes of our initial enquiry for a room and help with ferry tickets the next day, Bill called back... More

We have just returned from a break in Shanklin where we stayed at the Hambledon Hotel, and it's easy to see why this family hotel has won its truly deserved awards. Having experienced this lovely hotel with its delicious meals and hospitality, we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else when we next visit the Isle of Wight.

Bill and Jackie, who own the Hambledon, are so welcoming that you feel at home as soon as you arrive. Not only was the hotel spotless and extremely comfortable but I must recommend the food. I don't usually eat in hotel restaurants in the evenings, but decided to do so on the first night. After that - I didn't want... More

We have just had another three night stay at this well positioned, friendly hotel in a quiet location near Shanklin seafront. We stayed in a lovely, newly decorated room, clean and comfortable. Meals are good with a variety of choices and the breakfasts really set us up for a day's walking! The half board and ferry package represents excellent value... More

Stayed at the Hambledon for 2 nights over Easter for a relaxing family break with my husband & 3 year old son. Hotel was beautiful and the owners made a special effort to make us & our son feel very welcome, even leaving our son an Easter egg out at breakfast. Overall we all had a perfect time & can't...

This hotel is a gem on a gem of an island. It is very well located for exploring the Isle of Wight either by car or public transport, and of course by shanks's pony (walking). Bill and Jackie are very hospitable and the perfect hosts.

Just returned from a wonderful long weekend break at this lovely hotel. Bill and Jackie and their staff certainly go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Our room was exceptionally clean and the en-suite shower was lovely with plenty of hot water. The breakfast and evening meals are cooked to order with high quality ingredients and plenty... More

We just spent 4 nights at the Hambledon and had half-board. How enjoyable it was. Bill and Jackie and their staff were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast each morning had different choices, as did the evening meal. The food was excellent. Our room was tastefully furnished and the double bed was very comfortable and the main thing was the... More

A warm welcome awaits everybody who comes to stay at the hotel. The staff are all friendly and go out of their way to help the guests. It is very much a family atmosphere . The rooms are comfortable.
