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

We were due to stay for two nights but unfortunately could only stay one as we had a family crisis that meant we had to go home. The whole place feels like you are staying with a relative. Margot & Graeme make you very welcome. Our room was quite small but adequate and the bathroom was tiny but functional. The... More

Thanks very much for your kind review. We acknowledge that this room and en-suite are snug but this is perhaps a feature of B and B's mostly housed in what used to be private houses. We aim to make up for that with superb service, extras, prices, special offers and food. More
