We've stayed at the Richmond for two nights, and it's been a very pleasant experience. The room was big, with a lot of space for our luggage, clean and modernly fusnished. Owners are kind and very respectful, since they provided us (on request) a tasty vegetarian breakfast. There's free parking beside the house, but the centre of Shankling is a... More

The Richmond is a husband and wife run B&B in the heart of Shanklin, Isle of Wight. As it said on their web page, the Richmond is a private family home and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be precisely that. The 'home' atmosphere is relaxing and rooms were very comfortable. The current owners have been there... More

Our room (no 6) should never have been sold as a double - we had no room either side of the bed and very basic - there wasn't even a mirror in the room. This was a single room with a double bed at best. never again!

Hello. Mr & Mrs D.F. We are posting this response to the couple, members of the D.F. party who stayed with us August 2014. As you have chosen to post two reviews as opposed to one for an occupying couple (not sure that’s in the spirit of trip advisor) so we have copied this response to both of them. Allow... More

Our room was very small and basic. If you just need a bed for the night it s fine. Very clean. Helpful hosts. I would nt stay again though as it was too cramped in general. Our room really should have been a single room, as it was impossible to move around as the double bed took up all the... More

I have just returned from my second stay with Mark and Caz at the Richmond Bed and Breakfast. I have been going to the Isle of Wight for many years now and have stayed in various hotels and bed and breakfasts in Shanklin all of which have been different star ratings and prices. I have to say that for what... More

We've just returned from a week's break in the Isle of Wight, staying at the Richmond B&B. We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay and we feel we made the right choice of accommodation. Our room was fresh, very clean and had been recently decorated and newly furnished. The DVD player was a nice touch. Breakfast... More

Just returned from a two night stay as we were working at the Garlic Festival. Our stay was a pleasant one, food nice but limiting. Bedroom very sweet, clean and with lovely furnishings that were repeated throughout the building. For once we had a full size kettle to make our flasks in the morning only to find it hard to... More
