A big thankyou to Bill and Jackie for making our holiday as good as ever. We all had a fantastic time. As always the hotel was faultless with excellent home cooked meals, the rooms were very clean and tidy and beautifully decorated. The Hambledon Hotel is just a great place for a family holiday where you are always looked after,... More

Just back from our third visit in as many years to The Hambledon and just as good as ever. Nothing is too much trouble for Bill & Jackie who continue to deliver a winning formula. No.1 for a reason. See you next year...Tony, Charlotte and the girls.

All rooms very clean and decorated beautifully. Stayed for B/B, food choice was good and cooked perfectly. The location was ideal for us to get to the beach, and a short walk too to the train station and pubs/shops/cafes.... More

Just come back from our first stay at the Hambledon after using Tripadvisor to pick the hotel and I have to say, peeps you did it again! From the warm and friendly welcome with a cup of tea before help with the bags, to the regular evening get-togethers in the bar with Bill, Jackie and the other guests, I have... More

They are so friendly, you can ask them anything from advice on how to... More

After returning from The Hambledon Hotel for our 10th year, we couldn't ask for more. The food (main and children's menu) and rooms are to a high standard and the location is convenient for venturing to the beach, old village or town centre in Shanklin with many other places a short drive away. Coming to the Hambledon is always a... More
