We stayed in the Alverstone room which was very spacious with a beautiful sea view and large balcony. Perfect for us and our 9 month old baby. A very family friendly room, I only had to move a few items to make it baby safe, the furniture is very sensible. We divided the room up in to a play area... More

We stayed with my young children for a 3 night break. The rooms were spacious, clean and the sea view and balcony were real highlights. The decor was pretty tired though and the beds were a bit uncomfortable. We were locked out on a couple of occasions which was annoying. Breakfast was a disappointment. No fruit, cooked breakfast was ok... More

Rooms are very clean and comfortable, our suite had 2 rooms, with the children having their own TV in their room. We chose this hotel because we are a family of 5 and it is the only... More

I stayed as a large group. It was comfortable and clean and the rooms were a nice size. Though some rooms are not en-suite. There is one room where there are three cubicles, two showers and one toilet. I found that a little strange. The food is not brilliant but they give you plenty. I found the decor not so... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we found the hotel to be a perfect choice in every aspect. The owners were so welcoming. When we arrived we were greeted and asked how was our journey etc. We were shown to our room and told if there was anything we needed or wanted to just come and... More

The Esplanade is good value for money, in that you don't pay much, but get a pretty good deal; basic but clean rooms, very friendly host, perfectly OK breakfast. We (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed in one of the 2 'family suites', which to be honest were a masterpiece of creative photography on the website - although the rooms were... More

My wife and I visited the Esplanade Hotel in Shanklin for five nights in August 2011. On arrival we were shown to our room (no 4) which was spacoius, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The room had a large king size bed, a three piece sofa/chairs and a great balcony overlooking the sea. The room was a great place to relax... More
