Keith and Chris are the most friendly, courteous and helpful hosts.

My sister Dorothy and I spent a really enjoyable week at Swiss Cottage during July. Our hosts Christine and Keith, not forgetting Tansy, were very friendly, yet most professional, and made us feel most welcome. The accommodation could not be faulted, with many extras not expected. The food was excellent - well cooked with plenty of choice. Would certainly recommend... More

The Swiss Cottage is in an excellent location, not far from the beach and public transport. Keith and Christine run an outstanding hotel, very friendly, clean and comfortable and go out of their way to meet their guests' needs.

Three of us stayed with Christine and Keith Beckett at The Swiss Cottage in Shanklin and for the entire stay they were exceptional. Christine and Keith were friendly, accommodating, funny and professional. The guest house itself is wonderful - and in a great location not far from the beach and Old Village. The meals (we had breakfast and evening meals)... More
