An overnight stay in July, in a wonderful building within a stone's throw of the railway station, the town centre and especially the beach.......all of which is topped by the memorable hospitality of Karen, Kim and team. Guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to breakfast - the full English (or perhaps, only a fruit cocktail for those with... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Kenbury for two nights. It is very easy to get to by train or bus. We got a two day bus pass and there is a bus stop just a two minute away from the front door. The train station is also only 5 minutes away. The staff were also very attentive and... More

We stayed two nights in May, booked the small double - but then asked to change to one with a large TV as the weather looked awful & thought we may not want to venture too far in the evenings. On arrival we were advised that the upgrade was free. The room was spacious, fresh, crisp & clean. The welcome... More

We stayed two nights over the May Bank Holiday and had a lovely time. The Kenbury is a must if you are staying in Shanklin. If you like a warm welcome, spotless accommodation, excellent breakfast and hospitality then you need not look any further. Our (Premier) room was very large, furnished and decorated beautifully and absolutely spotless. We had a... More

I booked a 'small' double room for myself and 4 year old grandaughter. The room was much larger than I expected. It was lovely, very clean and full of light/sunshine. Bed linen was bright white and the pillows were lovely and soft. We had a lovely welcome from Karen and she made us very welcome. Good selection for breakfast (served... More

We stayed there for the Easter weekend, 3 nights with friends who also booked a double room. On arrival the welcoming from the owner (Susan)was so friendly and helpful, giving us lots of information about the area. There isn't anything we could moan about but the carpet when we first arrived gives you the wrong impression of the hotel, as... More

We Stayed here for 2 nights. Rooms were very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The breakfast was of very good quality and the staff were very pleasant, polite and accommodating. The markets with many good restaurants was an easy 10 minute walk from the Hotel. Overall had a very good experience and would definitely stay again. Highly recommended..
