We were very impressed with the hotel. Clean spotless rooms, very good vegetarian breakfast, excellent location. Very kind and helpful hosts. The kids felt very welcome and enjoyed the stay. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Bob and Anne were very helpful and took good care of us. Excellent breakfast. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is great: wonderful view, short walk to the beach and to the town centre.

You are greeted with a warm welcome by Ann and Bob, the rooms are recently updated for a clean modern look. An excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. An ideal location to get around the island. Can't wait to return

After visiting the Isle of Wight and staying at the Carlton hotel for many years with my family, I decided to bring my partner to stay too! Bob and Anne (the owners) have made the island a very special place for me, they have always been so warm and friendly during our stays. When I used to visit with my... More

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.

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
