Firstly, thank you so much to Jo and Andy for making our weekend break as wonderful as it was. They are an absolutely fantastic couple who could not be more welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They are incredibly hard working and should be extremely proud of their beautiful hotel. Jo and Andy have great invaluable local knowledge of... More

After staying in a number of hotels on the Isle of Wight that are either geared towards tour groups, with very little attention to decor or facilities; or other hotels that claim to be 'boutique' in name only, The Shoreside Inn was a welcome surprise. Superbly located on Shanklin esplanade, directly on the beach, and moments walk to the cliff... More

We booked the Shoreside for a short wedding anniversary break based on the Tripadvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed in any way. Our suite was beautifully designed, well equipped, spotless and extremely comfortable. We were accommodated at the front of the hotel with panoramic views of the Channel and the seafront itself. Whilst the bar and restaurant were closed (out... More

Very warm welcome from Jo and Andy even though we were much earlier than the 4pm check-in (1.30pm), it was like they knew we were coming and waited for us without really knowing what time we were arriving. Lovely room, so clean, I would have eaten my dinner off of the floor. Great view from the bedroom and the bathroom... More

Thank you Jo and Andy for a wonderful birthday/anniversary stay. It is obvious you have both worked so hard to make The Shoreside such a warm welcoming home from home. The information you gave us on the island and places to see made our stay more interesting. Would recommend you to anyone and would suggest that the Fine Nammet restaurant... More

Stayed in June 2013, stayed in twin room, absolutely spotless, lovely shower, great view, excellent decor and comfortable beds. Jo and Andy are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble, the breakfasts are great and the warm pastries for breakfast are not to be missed. Hope to stay again next year

Having never been to the Isle of Wight, I wasn't sure where to stay or what to expect. I chose this hotel after looking over several and deciding we wanted to be a bit away from the larger cities. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. We were warmly greeted by Andrew who gave us many suggestions on things... More
