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

We have just had another wonderful stay at the Hambledon. Bill and Jackie are the perfect hosts. In the words of my 8yr old son, 'they are really nice and make you feel welcome', I couldn't agree more. The rooms are always clean and tidy. The food was wonderful and their staff are extremely helpful and professional. Making my mum... More

Stayed with Bill & Jackie for the second time in Sept for another walk around the island (The Hot Cross Bun this time). The hotel is a lovely clean, tidy, friendly and fun place to stay and the food is absolutely delicious. Good location too with Shanklin town and the beach only a couple of minutes walk away. Stayed at... More

we stayed last week for a walking holiday and we had a wonderful time. Bill and Jackie,the owners, and their staff looked after us in a 5star fashion in a 2star hotel. All that you require for a perfect stay.

We returned again to Bill and Jackie's brilliant hotel for our third organised walking holiday. This time we walked the 'Hot Cross Bun' route which is a 4 day adventure (North to South and East to West) centred on Carisbrooke Castle. The finish is a spectacular walk to the Needles across Tennyson Down. It has all been said before in... More

After our third stay at this little gem of a hotel, things just keep getting better. Jackie and Bill know just how to make a stay so perfect, there when you want them, but otherwise you are just left to enjoy your stay . Superb food, friendly and efficient staff and clean and inviting rooms. Always made to feel so... More
