Excellent location in Shanklin, very pretty village with shops and restaurants close by. A short walk to the seafront and enjoyed the walks to nearby Sandown. Parking available which is always a bonus. The breakfast was a well thought out and varied menu for all, looked forward to it each morning. Gareth and Sarah are a lovely couple and made... More

Stayed for a four night break with our daughter and partner who stayed for a two night break.My daughter has a nut allergy and Sarah and Gareth were so good in dealing with this allergy. They were also very good at recommending restaurants and even offering to book them. Have been coming to the Island for 40 years and this... More

Excellent location in Shanklin for visiting the sights (like the Shanklin Chine- beautiful), shops and restaurants. Short walk to the seafront where there are more restaurants. Parking available at the Guest House. Very enjoyable stay. Very near a lovely old fashioned sweet shop. We received welcome cake and tea on arival at the Guest House.

We would recommend this guesthouse to everyone. It is on a quiet road, but a 2 min walk to shanklin high street and all the lovely shops and restaurants. The breakfasts were fabulous and a different choice everyday. Gareth and Sarah have thought of everything to make their guests welcome and we will be back.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The B&B is ideally located in the town and is close to nearby restaurants and amenities with the benefit of parking (although tight)! The room and bathroom was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The toilet was noisy after flushing/cistern refilling maybe but this was a minor problem.... More

The Old Shanklin guess house is a great place the stay. Breakfast is excellent and the house is immaculate. Sarah & Gareth are perfect hosts - friendly and helpful when you need them but unlike some guest houses it is very professional and doesn't feel like you are staying in someone's spare room. I have nothing bad to say.

Gareth and Sarah are a really friendly, helpful couple, running this superb guest house to top notch standards. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, comfy beds and only a few metres away from the charming old Shanklin Village. The choice at breakfast was outstanding, tasty, perfectly cooked and mainly locally sourced. We stayed 2 nights with friends and would definitely come again... More

We stayed here for 4 nights last week including the weekend. Before we booked we weren't sure whether a guest house was our cup of tea. However, this wasn't just any guest house. Sarah and Gareth greeted us upon arrival and were so friendly - afterall, we were staying in their house. We were shown our room (i recommend upgrading... More

Received a great welcome from Gareth and Sarah. Our room was in the basement "Captains Room" super large bathroom with a nautical theme everything seemed new and fresh and it was spotlessly clean. Good choice of breakfast, especially the rhubarb, strawberry and yoghurt compote. I had a different cooked breakfast during our 3 day stay and all were cooked to... More

We always remark when leaving Old Shanklin Guest House that it really is a home from home for us, comfortable, spacious room (the Bonchurch suite), quiet spot yet close to all the restaurants, beach etc, great hosts, nice breakfasts ....so we have returned each summer. Sarah and Gareth have cracked it really with their guest house, modern nicely furnished rooms... More
