We stayed at the Clarence House in Shanklin on Apr 20-21, 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Clarence House is a classic Victorian style home, in a fantastic location. Margy and Graeme are warm and welcoming, and made a wonderful British breakfast. We highly recommend staying at the Clarence House if visiting Shanklin. Ward C Calgary, Canada

28th August - 2nd Sept 2012 Margi & Graeme are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts as substantial as you wish to order and beautifully cooked.
