Location is 300m to Shanklin beach. About 500m to Old Shanklin with thatched pubs and restaurants. Plus about a 10/12 minute walk to the local train station in Shanklin to get to Ryde if you fancy a non driving day out. I would definitely stay at the Hambledon again when visiting the Isle of Wight. We came over on Red... More

The rooms are well appointed and mega clean, Bill and Jackie are excellent hosts and met our every need. We stayed on a half board basis and found the food offering to be varied, well cooked and abundant. We will definitely stay... More

Second visit and still giving the same warm welcome, excellent food and comfortable high standards which lift the Hambledon well above expectations for a 2* hotel. Bill and Jackie and their staff do everything you could ask for to make your visit a happy one. We've just spent a week with them and even the weather did us proud. Tanks... More

This hotel never ceases to impress. After a number of visits to the Hambledon, Bill and Jackie always make us so welcome. The Hotel is very clean and the food is outstanding. Located in excellent position near Shanklin town and beach.

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...
