We visited the Isle of Wight for two nights and couldn't have asked for a better place to base ourselves. From the initial warm welcome from Sarah and Gareth, to the decor, to the comfort, to the location, to the daily fresh cooked breakfast, everything was of the highest standard. Nothing could be faulted. We will be recommending Old Shanklin... More

Sarah and Gareth were very friendly and hospitable. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Good quality towels and bed linens. There was a wide choice for breakfast and some great homemade jams and marmalade. They were both very welcoming and allowed us to leave our bags after check out so we could explore the area. Really well... More

The breakfasts were excellent, with a different special option everyday. A lot of thought and planning has gone into this fantastic bed and... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 day break. We found this bed and breakfast perfect for location, comfort and price. The owners have clearly put a lot of care in decorating the rooms and providing lots of little bits of information to make the stay more pleasurable. The breakfast is great- with one special breakfast everyday!... More

We stayed for four nights for a birthday treat. Lovely Guest House, lovely people and lovely food. We stayed in the St Helen's room. Lovely comfy bed and spotlessly clean. The lemon drizzle cake and tea on arrival was lovely. Couldn't fault it and would definitely recommend to others. Thanks Sarah and Gareth we'll be back! Sorry about the too... More
