Stayed at the Richmond for one night to attend a party. The hosts were very informative and friendly but we could not book in until 4pm even tho we did ring and left a message. The Superior room was very clean and comfortable but a little small, especially the space between the end of the bed and the wardrobe, but... More

We stay here every year when we visit Shanklin as it is the most friendly, clean and best situated accommodation we have found. We have been visiting the island for the past 10 years, sometimes twice a year, and so have stayed in plenty of places. We found The Richmond 5 years ago and will never stay anywhere else now....

The Richmond is a lovely traditional B and B, friendly staff, lovely rooms loads of space, very convenient for the town and lovely walks along the sea front. Enjoyed our stay, the breakfasts were excellent, you could have the full English with yogurts as well, we were happy. Free parking and wifi too!

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
