Our third visit to Rylstone Manor and it was as wonderful as usual. It's a first class place to stay - delightful individually decorated rooms, luxurious towels and bathrobes, friendly staff and a small friendly dining room with Angela and Ellie serving food with a big smile. Carole and Mike ensure first class standards at all times. Thank you to... More

Friendly, welcoming, select, a little gem of a hotel. Nine individually decorated & different rooms, Each room has it's own resident teddy bear who keeps an eye on things ! Red squirrels in the garden, jays in the trees, but so quiet & peaceful at night. Excellent food, clean, wonderful service. Loved it.

It's been a long time since we visited the Isle of Wight; this must be the best hotel on the island. Carole and Mike have maintained Rylestone as a period property, it is sited in the middle of a formal garden with exotic trees all round. despite it's period feel it has all the modern attributes one would expect; it...

This is a superb hotel in a great setting in parkland near Shanklin Chine and close to the sea. Quiet location, but town centre is only a short walk away. Owners and staff are very welcoming and friendly and the service and food excellent. Beautiful décor and very clean. Recommended.

We have just returned from a wonderful few days staying at Rylstone. From the moment we entered the front door we were made to feel special. The rooms are spotless and sheer luxury. The breakfast was everything you could ask for. We had already made arrangements to eat out in the evenings but understand from others we may have missed... More

We had several nights at Rylstone Manor. The hotel is lovely and yes it is a little disconcerting that the door is closed when you arrive, but ring the bell and you will be given a warm welcome. Our room was lovely, clean and had everything we needed, the location was lovely in the grounds of a park and very... More

So, this review may be somewhat out of date, but we went back to the gardens recently and it jogged my memory, thinking back, it made me want to write a review. So, slight back story - my wife grew up in this hotel, her parents ran it when she was young. So when we got married in 2010, we... More

We are sorry you left feeling disappointed, although as it was fours years ago I will try my best to explain some items in your review. We have had a few people come to the hotel for wedding nights and have tried very hard to remember what details really relate to your experience. We believe we did make tea for... More

Warm welcome from Mike,owner, on arrival at this lovely,peaceful spotlessly clean country hotel which is close to Old Shanklin and sea views.Delicious food cooked by Mike and served by the lovely Angie, who is a mine of information about the island. A big thank you to Mike and Carole for making our short break so enjoyable. Joy and Ian Macdonald.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days in May, wow what a lovely hotel. Set in Parkland with easy views to the sea from the cliff top. Only one room left when we booked and it did say it was one of the small rooms (Cedar), but when we arrived it was lovely. It had two windows to... More
