We had a sea view room which was lovely waking up to the view. 5 minutes walk to sea front and Shanklin Chine Excellent breakfast will keep you going until mid afternoon. Lovely sun... More

Stayed here for a church reunion.... Heavenly! Dave and Ann were just amazing, so full of enthusiasm and couldn't do enough for you. Staff were fantastic with great attention to detail. Breakfasts were amazing and the now famous sausages were every bit as good as we had heard. Great heated pool which is well protected and a real sun-trap, we... More

This is the second time I've stayed here whilst working at the Isle of Wight Festival. Anne and David are wonderful warm people, who really look after their guests. Freshly baked bread in the morning and Anne's own homemade jams and marmalade are wonderful. Highly recommended.

We stayed here again, just for one night, and found everything perfect as usual. The cheery welcome, the spotless room and excellent breakfast all make for a lovely stay, however brief. We will be back!

Stayed here last week and loved it. The hosts Anne & Dave are wonderful, so welcoming and helpful. Our room was room 4 and it was just right for us, with a great view of the sea, and a decent bathroom. Kept spotlessly clean, and the welcoming bar was lovely of an evening, and we were able to sit out... More

Had a great welcome from Dave. The staff too are very pleasant. Could not fault the hotel for its cleanliness. Excellent. Our room looked recently decorated and refurbished. The bathroom was a bit too small but for a couple of days fine the cleanliness made up for it.Not all rooms have wifi but we got the last one. Breakfast very... More

We stayed at the Havelock on 25th & 26th May 2015. We stayed in room 20, a small double which was more than adequate for a 2 night stay. The room was modern and beautifully clean with spotless bedlinen, towels etc.. Our room overlooked the pool, which we didn't use but was being enjoyed by a family with teenagers. Breakfast... More
