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. It's clear they like to get... More

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.

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

Margot & Graeme make you very welcome. Our room was quite small but adequate and the bathroom was tiny but functional. The... More
