Guy and Claire looked after us well. We booked two single rooms, which were good value: perfectly clean, comfortable beds and tea/coffee-making facilities. Breakfast was tasty, with a good choice of full English, salmon and scrambled eggs or a variety of other options, including vegetarian. Our bikes were stored securely outside. It's a pity that the only evening meal time... More

Excellent guesthouse. Clean, comfortable, very friendly, and great food. Good location, not far from cliff top path, and for those without a car, not far from bus stops. Thank you Claire and Guy for a great holiday. I hope to be back sometime. John .

Our third two week stay with Claire and Guy. Breakfast and three course evening meal has been excellent every day with lots of choice. Claire, Guy and the family always offer a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Our room and everywhere else was spotless. They have a good selection of books to borrow or board games to...

We stayed for two nights. We had two rooms because we took the children. Both rooms were spacious, clean and homely. The guesthouse was clean throughout and the owners Claire and Guy greeted us with welcoming smiles and made our whole stay an enjoyable experience. The breakfast was exceptional and hearty. I would definitely recommend this place to all my... More

These two people Claire and Guy, were most welcoming, where can you go in this day and age where the hotel owners come to the front door and welcome you by greeting you by your first names personally helping you with your luggage.Nothing was too much for them, the personal touch in all aspects of our experience was very refreshing....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emphasis at The Royson is on genuine hospitality and delicious home cooking from hearty full English breakfasts to lovingly prepared 3 course evening meals. You will find The Royson ideally situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Shanklin just a minute away from the cliff top path, panoramic views of Sandown Bay and Blueberries licensed cafe. (Cafe open Tuesday to Sunday during the main season) Perfect as a base for exploring the Island or just popping down to the beach. The hustle and bustle of Shanklin town is just 20 minutes walk away or 5 minutes by car or by bus, where you will find bars, restaurants and gift shops, then leave all that behind when you return to the peaceful settings of The Royson. ... more   less
