Having read such positive reviews for the hotel, we booked a long weekend for the two of us and our 19mth old daughter. It is the first hotel we have stayed where the hotel more than lived up to the reviews. Bill and Jackie are lovely and the hotel is spotless. We opted for half board (with ferry crossing included...

The hotel is clean and tidy with all the décor in good condition. Helpful and welcoming hotel owners. Location very good for local restaurants and pubs as well as for travel around the island. Altogether, a very restful break.

It had been a long awaited break for myself and I shall be returning to this hotel hopefully next year. The rooms are spotless and cosy, the breakfast was lovely and Bill... More

Went for a four night break with the girlfriend. The hotel was very nice clean and was welcomed when entering by bill. He showed us to our room which was comfy and warm. Breakfast was very nice and loved how they catered for me as I'm quite fussy. All in all a very nice time in a very nice hotel... More

We are a small walking party and have just returned from another great holiday at The Hambledon. Excellent food, spotlessly clean and Jackie and Bill are great hosts. Look forward to returning next year.

Lost count of the times we have stayed here over the last 5 years. Every stay is as enjoyable as the last. You couldn't ask for more from a hotel. I would recommend anyone visiting Shanklin to stay here. Thanks to Bill & Jackie for another wonderful stay. See you soon.

Just spent 3 nights half board at The Hambledon. Could not fault it from the moment Bill met us with a very welcome cup of tea... Our room was comfortable, the hotel is very clean and the food is very good. Bill and Jackie are excellent hosts and we hope to return next time we visit the I.O.W.

Had a four night stay Half Board. Could not fault it, very clean, friendly and helpful owners and pleasant staff. Had a sociable lounge and bar area for the evenings before and after dinner. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back another year. Also very reasonable tariff which also takes in the ferry.

Just spent a week at The Hambledon, 4th year running so we are novices compared to some. Can't fault it, the walking was excellent, especially the organised walks where we join another group and were led by Maggie, Jill and Bill - looking forward to next year in fact. Bill and Jackie were brilliant as always, food excellent - how... More
