My 4th time here, spent an absolutely fantastic week again. Food is exceptional, rooms clean and well decorated, staff are helpful without being intrusive and the hotel is set in a quiet area but within easy walking of the old village area. Excellent access to buses. Everything you could want in a family run hotel. I'll b going back again... More

We were greeted by JoAnne every morning at breakfast time who showed us to our table and introduced us to the staff. Breakfast is served in the lovely conservatory and... More

We have just made our first visit to the Isle of Wight and based ourselves at The Fernbank having read an excellent review of the hotel in one of the Sunday papers. It certainly did not disappoint. The hotel is perfectly placed in a quiet location and within a very easy walk of Shanklin's High Street and the old village... More

The Fernbank is easily one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in! After a very welcoming check in with a hospitable host, we tried out the indoor pool which was lovely. A five minute walk to Shanklin old village and we had found ourselves dinner for the night. The room was compact but had everything we needed, a very... More

An amazing place but totally made by the staff. The trouble they go to ensure guest satisfaction is first class, advice on parking (where to), attractions, routes is all provided. The pool is a great plus too, lovely and warm. Sadly the weather was rather wet during my stay ( not their fault!) but I did seek advice and loved... More
