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

Sarah and Gareth greeted us all, good welcome and we were shown the visitors lounge with homemade chocolate chip biscuits. We had the upstairs double with parking and our friends the down stairs double without parking, a slight price difference that's all. The whole house is decorated very tastefully and is very welcoming. The beds and linen are a very... More

Stayed again for the second year. Sarah and Gareth have a terrific business with a great personal service. The accommodation is immaculate and high spec. The breakfast too are great and you won't be disappointed staying here. We have already booked for next year. Thank you Sarah and Gareth.

My partner and me have just returned home from a wonderful weeks holiday at the Old Shanklin Guest House, we were unfortunate to miss out staying at the OSGH last year as it was fully booked, so we booked earlier this year to guarantee us staying and all we can say is that it fully worth the wait. The guesthouse... More

Stayed for 3 days. Gareth and Sarah are perfect hosts, and the breakfasts are first rate. Very comfortable bed and the en-suite was large and spotlessly clean. Would recommend without hesitation. We will be going back.

Me and my fiancée stayed here for 3 nights, and have to say it was absolute pleasure from start to finish. The room was very clean, smart and modern. And the hosts Gareth and Sarah were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast provided here was varied and always hot and brought to your table with a smile and a grin,... More

Have just returned today after holidaying at this lovely guest house. Read all the reviews before booking hoping not to be let down again, and I have to say it is as lovely as the reviews say. Our room was of a big size, lovely firm king size bed, large bathroom with toiletries supplied. The host and hostess were excellent.... More

Sarah J, Owner at Old Shanklin Guest House, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your review, Sue. We’re glad you enjoyed yourselves despite the lack of Mrs OSGH, due to her hospital admission! Mr OSGH had to cope admirably for 9 days in the end. We are both very grateful to our very understanding guests. Thankfully the seagulls have gone. It’s a short window of time when the chicks... More
