I have stayed before but things have changed. The hotel has been bought by a company who operate a chain of hotels for coach holidays. Last orders for Dinner is now at the "quaint" time of 7.15!. Also the new company have "clipped the wings" of chef and he now has to serve the same menu as the rest of... More

We have for a number of years stayed at the Shanklin Hotel. On our recent visit we were disappointed to learn that the Hotel has been taken over by Leisureplex. The room was fine clean and good clean linen but the public areas need tender loving care of at the least a good vacuum. The dining room lacked feeling. The... More

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

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
