A pretty setting but uncomfortable outdoor patio seating. No dinner service unless a special request is made which was confusing as I saw a dinner menu on one website. Room was hot and only a small window for ventilation - requested that the blankets were left off the bed due to heat, but 2 put on every night. Tired furnishings... More

My wife was working on the island on a Friday so we decided to make a weekend go it. Accommodation was limited but we got a room at the Bourne Hall.

We stayed here as a last minute booking. The location was great, and although the decoration of the hotel would not be to everybody's taste, it was OK if a little tired. We paid extra for a sea-view and it was a great view from the room. The room was comfortable and well organised. But oh my, the bathroom. As... More

The hotel is situated a little way out from Shanklin Old Village and is up the hill - so be warned if you're not prepared to do the pull up via walking...it's not that bad, however. There is off-street parking which is a REAL bonus given the ubiquitous double yellow lines on the IOW and the breakfasts were very good... More
