Visited Shanklin Hotel on 30th August for 7 day's and after reading recent reviews was a little worried about the bad reviews. We had booked this holiday a long time before we travelled and had gone on the very positive reviews when booking. We did not find out it had changed owners until two week's before our departure. I am... More

Booked a 4 night stay over the August Bank Holiday, I have previously stayed at this hotel & was looking forward to seeing it again. Unfortunately Hotel has now been taken over by a new company which has made some changes. We were not overly happy with our stay The room was excellent, clean & freshly decorated but the food...

Well. Where do I start? We travelled to the island for a five day trip with our local coach operator. We had heard so much about the Shanklin Hotel, mostly rave reports, I am glad we were unaware of what was to come…… Apparently the hotel has changed ownership over the last several months, we befriended a couple who had...

Just returned from a 5 day package coach holiday to the Shanklin Hotel, booking after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotel has now changed ownership and I understand that many of the existing staff have left. This soon became apparent. On arrival our cases were not taken to the room before dinner was served. We had travelled all... More

I recently (11/08/14/ to15/08/14) went on a tour that used this hotel as it's base. The tour organiser had visited the Shanklin hotel the previous year and was looking forward to the tour enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of during our short stay. Unfortunately the ownership had changed during the year and whereas the two star rating was an under statement... More

Upon arrival the first thing that hit me was the stale smell of the carpet that looks like it's hasn't been changed or cleaned for many years. I was stunned to find no air con as one would expect all hotels of this size would have. Instead had to settle for a floor fan courtesy of the management. Our room... More

I think I must of been on the same trip as Paul T, see other reviews, and I agree with all he says although I think he is generous saying the Sunday Dinner was an improvement - I think the Roast Beef was straight out of a packet and so was the Chef's special - Chicken curry! The only food... More

We visited as a couple, as part of a coach group. There were 4 coaches at the hotel and it was annoying that there were 4 separate breakfast/ dinner sittings. We were the last, meaning a late breakfast and late evening meal.This meant the hotel could use less staff, but it also meant we had to make special arrangements for... More

Booked the visit directly with the hotel who also booked the ferries which was helpful as we only paid one bill for the whole trip The hotel was at best poor, lacking atmosphere and charm looked more like a 1960,s throw back with none of the nice bits just old fashioned which extended to most aspects of our stay We...
