Stayed as part of a coach party. Four other coach parties there at the same time. Early season so cable car to promenade not in service making walk to and from hotel to either beach or shops steep and long. That aside, difficult to offer any criticisms. Facilities, room and food all fine. However, difficult to understand what "happy hour"... More

My wife and I booked for Christmas, it was awful, we were not informed of the hotel takeover until it was to late to book anywhere else, even Parkhurst was full. Our first evening "Managers sherry reception" was half a glass of vino collapso with anything resembling a manager nowhere in sight. The entertainment was designed for let us say... More

Stayed last Christmas before it changed hands and on the strength of that stay booked again for this Christmas. Disappointed. The new managers have cut back on everything that made it so special before. Had we known, we would have cancelled. The staff work hard but fewer of them mean service is not as good. Food is acceptable but it's... More

Just had a weekend in the Shanklin Hotel. The new owners have changed the atmosphere of the hotel, it is just not the same as it was.They seem to have cut back on things. We were there for a 'Santa' special.The food was very good although the staff were really under pressure because of their reduced numbers.The crackers were very... More

Just returned from a two night pre Christmas break to this very nice hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean and we could not fault the food. Overall a very enjoyable weekend with good company.

We spent 4 nights at the Shanklin hotel as a party of 7 occupying 3 rooms and we booked as private guests. Normally we fear staying at hotels used by coach companies as we thought the menu would be poor and portions small. However, at the Shanklin we found a pretty good menu with daily specials and decent portions with... More

We where also apprehensive about this hotel after reading some of the previous reviews which proved to be unfounded. Our room had been recently redecorated and was kept very clean,the restaurant times may have seen to be a bit regimented but with 3 coach parties in, this proved to be a advantage as nobody waited long to be served and...
