Firstly the owner Margot was a delight. Always smiling, happy and enthusastic about the island, her lovely B&B and life. The room was delightful with white crisp bedding and fluffy towels. Everything was immaculately clean and pristine. Even if we tried we couldnt pick fault. The shower room looked as if it had been just installed as each tile was... More

We had a lovely stay with Graehame and Margi at Clarence House. I had asked some questions before staying as we have minor disabilities and I am vegetarian. Graehame called back straight away with the answers. He provided me with veggie alternatives for brekkie and those that like eggs will love his poached eggs which are particularly good. The bed...

The location is great, close to the seaside, walking distance about 2-3mins to the beach. The hosts were extremely friendly, breakfast cooked beautifully just exactly what you wanted in the morning, The lady host was also very knowledgeable about the local tourism spots, recommended a few places that we went with very lovely experience. Words can't describe the perfect experience... More

Parking is a bit limited as can accommodate only 3 cars, but is free on the road directly outside: but of course the house , built in 1898 , didn't know much about cars in those days! Thanks so much for all your kind comments and we look forward to enjoying your company again Grae and Margi More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Clarence House for one night over the August Bank Holiday weekend and we really enjoyed it. Location is good, it's about 10mins walk from the station, and 10-15mins from the seafront and the centre of Shanklin. The couple who run the B&B are lovely, really friendly and welcoming.

A delightful bed and breakfast stay in the IOW. First class hospitality and breakfast, the charming hosts offer a good value bed and breakfast in their Victorian home and the room we had, welcomes you back after a day on the beach/walking/sightseeing.
