The Carlton Hotel in Shanklin is a delightful family run hotel in a great location. The hospitality of Anne and Bob is second to none. Our special package included cross Solent ferry travel, which Anne organised, saving us money and a lot of hassle! We're already planning our next visit.

After reading several Tripadvisor Reviews, I decided to book The Carlton - We were not disappointed. It offers great value and I was very impressed with the ferry booking offer included. The hotel is conveniently situated to Shanklin Old Town and Seafront with spectacular sea views from the lovely deck. Light lunches and cream teas are available during the afternoon... More

My husband and I booked a last minute four night stay at The Carlton recently. We had never been to the Isle of Wight before so went online and booked The Carlton in Shanklin. What a surprise we had when we arrived at The Carlton. It was a sunny day and there were plenty of people out on the deck... More

Bob and Ann are the perfect hosts, the hotel is in a beautiful location with a garden with such good views you won't want to leave it. Great rooms, great breakfast. Definitely a hotel you will want to go back to year after year.

To get the best from this hotel a balcony room is essential. The sea view and the view of the beautifully kept garden are well worth the £15 a day supplement. Bob, Ann and their daughter Leigh run the hotel really well and they are all very approachable and helpful. Breakfasts organisation was a little disappointing. There is only a... More

Rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable as was all the hotel. We had our four year old grandson with us and Bob and Anne... More

You are greeted by Bob&Anne in their family run B&B ,the views are beautiful and Bob's garden is almost tropical. The house has recently been refurbished in lovely neutral tones is spotlessley clean. The food is always fresh and beautifully presented. We have been back many times over the years and highly recommend a visit.

Great position on the cliff top, with windows and terrace looking out to sea. The hotel is well run, if slightly old-fashioned in décor, but comfortable and clean. Quite expensive by mainland standards but apparently competitive in IoW terms. Offer deals including ferry crossings, which are essential for sensible holiday costs. Let down by breakfast, which instead of being a... More
