I absolutely love visiting Anne and Bob at The Shanklin Hotel. The location is fantastic; beautiful views over the sea. Beach easily reached and such pretty sunrise/sunsets. The best thing anout the hotel are the hosts who can't do enough to welcome you and make your stay as comfortable as possible. I was one of a party of 12 ladies... More

Bob and Anne are fabulous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The food was fresh and delicious. The bar is well stocked. The view and outdoor seating adds to the charm. I would recommend this accommodation to all. Very good value for money.

I was part of a group of friends who stayed at the Carlton for two nights and we had a fantastic time. Anne and Bob are terrific hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is in a beautiful spot and quiet but just a short walk from the town. All very comfortable and clean with a great... More

Another great stay at a great family run hotel. Bob and Ann are fantastic hosts and do their best to make you feel very welcome. This place gives good value for money and has great views from the garden deck and balcony over the channel, with a cold beer in hand.

Fantastic owners had a very welcomed stay. My boyfriend and I booked the Carlton Hotel after seeing amazing reviews for it on TripAdvisor and the deal they were advertising (with ferry fees included) was an offer we couldn't miss. Anne (the lovely hostess) booked us in and sorted out the ferry making life so much easier for us. On arrival... More

We (two adults) stayed here for three night in a twin room with a huge balcony and sea view, and planned to use the place as a base for day tripping around the Isle of Wight. This is a B&B hotel, so don't expect a spa or pool ......... but do expect great service, clean rooms and a really friendly... More

We first came here a few years ago, and try to get in every time we visit the IOW. The best rooms (we pay a little extra) are the balcony rooms. The breakfast selection is excellent. Daytime lunches in the tea deck gardens are very good too, and the well tended garden is a nice place to sit in. If... More

Stayed here again beginning of September and had another wonderful stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Anne and Bob and their staff. You are made to feel like one of the family. Rooms are spotless with towels changed every day. Breakfasts are excellent and we spent lunchtimes sitting out on the deck looking out over Shanklin Bay in the... More
