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...

We stayed in a sea view room which was nice, the view was amazing! Only problem was the building work going on opposite the hotel right outside our window, this woke us up every morning so not quite the relaxing break we were hoping for - I know this wasn't the hotels fault but we only booked a few days...

The room was clean and staff very friendly . Good points made! Unfortunately the hotel had changed ownership between booking and arriving.(booked after reading comments on trip advisor... More

This hotel was part of a package coach trip which we decided to book after seeing the glowing write up in the brochure - a mistake we now feel. The package was described as 4 star treatment all the way but this hotel is only 3 stars. Rooms were good size and clean beds and linen OK. No air conditioning... More

This hotel is ideal for people over 65+ it really needs some life put in to it. We are in our early 50's so not too old but no spring chickens, by time we left we brought some life to the older people playing pool asking to turn the music up a bit more. 4 different couples said they enjoyed...
