Breakfast was amazing -... More

On arrival received a very warm welcome explaining where everything was. There’s a lounge room with books, games & restaurant recommendations. Our room was a double and very big, with an extra room with a wardrobe,... More

The owner told us all about what to do in Shanklin and gave us helpful tips on what/where he recommended; and he was right! There were plenty of maps available to... More

This guest house is excellent. The owners are very friendly and nothing is a problem. Although we had one of the smaller rooms it was perfectly adequate for us with a fresh supply of tea, coffee, biscuits, mineral water etc. every day. The breakfasts are excellent with a good choice from a buffet plus an extensive cooked menu. The location... More

This was a random choice for three days in the Isle of Wight; and we were delighted. The welcome was efficient and friendly. It is in a quiet location, a discrete but easy distance from the seafront. The room was quite large with a view to the sea. It was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed plus... More
