Shanklin has been one of our destinations of choice for many years and we have stayed in many places in and around the town. Now, however, we believe we have have found the place we will keep going back to. Fernbank has all the amenities of a top quality hotel - Indoor Pool, Bar, Lovely dining room, gorgeous gardens, etc.... More

The Fernbank hosted a small group of us who were visiting the Island for a walking holiday. The owner was extremely helpful during the initial reservation and ferry booking phase, particularly when some of the group had to change their arrangements. Our accommodation was excellent, the breakfasts exceeded our expectations and the staff were attentive and helpful throughout. I hope... More

We spent a week at the Fernbank recently and found it an exceptional guesthouse. The owners and staff could not do enough for you and the house was beautifully furnished and clean. We had a superior room overlooking the lovely garden which, although not large, had everything we needed including bathroom with bath and shower. The breakfast was one of... More

We have just come back from a 6 night stay at this lovely accommodation. All staff were friendly and went out of their way to ensure you were happy. The breakfasts were wonderful, everywhere was clean and the pool was fantastic. There is a lovely cosy feel to the b & b which makes you think you are at home... More

We stayed at the Fernbank for a two night break in June. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown around and then to our room. The room was a little on the small side and I had expected it to be slightly bigger as we paid for the superior room and we had a view of the ground floor... More

Stayed on the recommendation of a friend & we were not disappointed, wonderful breakfasts & excellent, friendly service. Room & facilities all very clean & well cared for, lovely garden & pool to relax in after a busy day out. Owners & staff go out of their way to be helpful & nothing is too much trouble.

We had the pleasure of enjoying a short break in the Fernbank and it is without doubt one of the best Bed and Breakfasts I have stayed at. Our room was large and overlooking the lovely gardens and close to the good sized indoor swimming pool. Our room was immaculate, lots of cupboard space. The breakfasts were as many previous... More

We were checked in efficiently and in a friendly way, good double room, clean and comfy bed. We had a swim all to ourselves in the good sized indoor pool. Quiet yet central location, fabulous breakfast beautifully served in really lovely dining room. A well run business which would lure us back time and time again. Thank you Fernbank and... More

My partner and I just left this morning. We had a lovely week staying at the Fernbank where we were made to feel like family by all the staff we encountered. The rooms were very clean and modern, the en-suites were spotless and we genuinely felt guilty using them. Breakfast was of high quality every morning, making it far too... More
