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

Dear Jo-Ann, Julian and also your staff (lets not forget them too!) As you know from our discussions I have visited the IOW many times during my youth and thought I would visit this year to revisit the many places I did back then. What I looked for was a Hotel that was well placed with good reviews and at... 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

This is a real gem. We keep coming back to this small but first class hotel. Rooms are immaculate, breakfast is excellent and the owners and staff are friendly and efficient. Location is great for touring the Island or for simply spending time on the nearby beach. But you need to book early, we book around 6 months ahead.

First visited in 2011 and returned again in July 2014 and was delighted to find that the Jo-Ann and Julian and their staff are still keeping up the excellent standards at The Fernbank. A particularly nice touch is that Jo-Ann goes to each table at breakfast time to speak to guests and is happy to provide any advice on getting... More
