Let's start with the positives first: The location is excellent with views of the sea from many rooms. A short walk in to Shanklin Old Town and a short but steep walk down to the promenade. The hosts are very friendly, as were the other guests. Breakfast was good, but be prepared to order this the night before! Good tea... More

The rooms were equally as unclean with dead flies strategically placed throughout the room.I went down to reception later in the day to complain about the shower which was... More

In this hotel, we organised the annual function of the professional society of Nepalese Engineers in the UK (SONEUK). Initially, it was not easy to manage our big group of 80 adults, teenagers and children. However, Ana and Kanaga were very kind to support any of our requests (rooms, foods and drinks) and offered the best price for us. Sea... More

We stayed for one night during the Isle of Wight festival. The hotel is in an easy to reach location, a short walk from the island line train station and served by bus routes. The hotel was very helpful in getting us an early check in and kept the reception open later at night to allow us to return. Whilst... More

Great view, decent size room and very friendly and helpful staff. Not quite 4 star but still very good value for money. Beach is just 2 minutes walk from hotel, most convenient place to stay. Nice place to spend weekend with partner. We would definitely return to this place and recommend Stayed 3 nights.
