The location is fantastic - only a few steps from the beach. I stayed in the single balcony room on the second floor which was pretty and with a beautiful view. My mother had a sea view double room which was also very light and attractive. Sitting on the spacious balcony with a cup of coffee in the early morning... More

We were looking for somewhere for dinner with peace and quiet on the Shanklin Eplanade, and found it at the Aqua. although we were not guests at the Hotel, and just turned up, there was no problem in finding us a table (at around 6pm). The waitresses were attentive, friendly and helpful and the food was well cooked, substantial and... More

Looks beautiful from the pictures and in reality it is mere steps from the beach. The lovely young lad in the bar area when we arrived was really helpful, apart from him and the lovely lady who served us breakfast (tall, pretty, dark ponytail) the rest was horrific. We had booked on-line, leaving a note about a lower floor as... More

This review is quite unacceptable because it contains so many in-accuracies. Firstly, the reviewer made the booking on line and chose the room that was required from the vacant rooms available. The confirmation that she received clearly states that the room is a “Small double room with Shower room en-suite with a garden view and on the second floor”. She... More

A very good one night stay. Family room was very comfortable and clean. Staff very helpful and welcoming. We had bikes and they were able to store these securely at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent.

We had a very enjoyable family dinner at this hotel. The staff were friendly and attentive and the meals delicious and substantial.I would recommend to others. My ratings are for the restaurant only as I was not a guest at the hotel.

Very nice stay at the beginning of July with my son. The room was all I needed except the size of the TV which was only 15 inches, but I had a conversation with the owner and they have already upgraded the TV in some rooms. The hotel was very clean and the staff brilliant. The food was very good... More

We stayed at the Aqua for a couple of days for a short break. Our well-appointed room was on the second floor with a balcony looking out to sea - a fabulous view to wake up to. The hotel is very clean and has a friendly staff, and we were made to feel very welcome. We took only breakfast in... More
