We had a very enjoyable stay here. Sue and Alan were very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We had a sea view room which more than lived up to expectations. The bedroom and bathroom were immaculate. Had an excellent breakfast in a lovely dining room.

Stayed here for a long weekend. We were looked after very well. Lovely room with sea views. Superb breakfasts, particularly the locally produced apple and pork sausages. This was our first visit and it looks like the owners have invested in carrying out a lot of improvements such as new carpets, decoration, nice beds, flat screen TV's all that make... More

Our first time staying at The Miclaran and what a friendly welcome. We have nothing but praise for the facilities at this B&B. Waking to a stunning sea view followed by a breakfast for for a king or queen. This may have been our first stay at The Miclaran but it won't be our last.

This was the second time we have stayed at the Miclaran. Sue and Alan are fantastic hosts, very friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast is excellent. Location is very peaceful, yet within easy access of Shanklin old village (recommend The Crab for great, good value meals). Hope to stay again upon next visit.

This was our second stay at the Miclaran, and once again we had a wonderful time. Sue and Alan are great hosts, and are always friendly, and helpful. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and we had a fantastic sea view. Excellent well cooked breakfasts, with a nice selection fruits and yogurt too. It was handy to be able to use... More

Stayed with Sue and Alan for first time for 6 nights for the IOW scooter rally. Nothing was too much trouble. It was clean, excellent breakfasts with good choice and they even found a safe place to store my valuable 60's Vespa.Will def be going back and would recommend to anyone.
