Excellent food, room and very friendly. Our 7th visit and will be back next year! Close to the beach, town, restaurants and pubs. Very good breakfast to 'set you up' for the day. Sally and Mike run an excellent hotel.

We stayed in room 11, a spotlessly clean and well furnished room! Breakfast was cooked well with plenty of choices on the menu for the main breakfast. Sally was the perfect hostess ( we only met Mike once as we arrived at the hotel though we are sure he would be the perfect host), providing us with information about places... More

The Snowdon House hotel was a wonderful surprise. Having stayed in Shanklin a couple of years ago in a 'hotel' that was very disappointing, our expectations were surpassed this time. The superior twin room was large, bright and scupulously clean. It had everything we needed, with the most comfortable beds. Breakfast was excellent - a large choice, even for my... More

We visited Snowdon House this summer for a family holiday and I have been meaning to write a review ever since we came back. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Snowdon House which is a fabulous old-fashioned hotel - I mean old-fashioned in the best sense in that the service is great (really friendly owners), everything is spotlessly clean and the...

I have a bad back so my friend kindly let me have the softer bed which was a good size room (no. 6 I think) with a couch and good shower room. However that left my friend in a much smaller room with the tiniest shower room... More
