First time stay at this small hotel and what a find ! Great little hotel, good rooms, fantastic food. Family run and the hosts (Bill and Jackie) are certainly 5-star ! Well-located in Shanklin, nothing is too much trouble for hosts and staff. Not surprising guests keep coming back year-on-year.

The hotel is a small family-run hotel, situated on a quiet street close to the beach and the city center. Excellent good, excellent service, clean rooms. The family room was spaceous and ideal for a family of four.
