After a long trip on a coach tour we where had warm welcome from the management.

The room was clean and comfortable and could have towel changes whenever wanted. There was a different menu each... More

Arrived on Saturday, only one young girl on reception, finishing her lunch. It looked empty and it was, nothing open, bar closed, no staff. The room was clean, with a sea view over the roof of the hotel. The walls must be paper thin as you can hear people moving about up stairs and in the corridors. On returning from... More

We've been on a number of coach holidays over the past few years and some of the hotels have left us wishing we were some place else, for one reason or another, but not this one. I personally believe the staff and cleanliness at a hotel can make or break a holiday. At the Shanklin Hotel recently bought by Alfa... More

Location also very good but as the lift on the Isle of Wight is not working it was very difficult to get down to the beach. My... More

Initially we had been allocated to room 31 which it seems is over a very noisy kitchen. Not only could we hear the conversations of the staff below but it sounded as if they were constantly moving heavy items. The room was very hot even with the window open. We asked to move to a quieter room and were given... More

Nice clean room with a sea view, and very good value. Shame there was no entertainment on Easter Saturday night ! When we asked the barman if we could get some food at 8.30pm he abruptly answered no not at this time of night! Strange I thought we were guests in a hotel! I can understand some hotels not offering... More
