The havelock is a hotel we have stayed in in numerous occasions. It's very clean, decorated to a good standard, the staff are very helpful, the breakfasts are very good. Highly recommended hotel very near the cliff path. The only tiny problem is the front car park can be a bit tight. There is an alternative around the back.

Booked to stay in a balcony room for 1 night at this hotel, the owners Dave and Ann were fantastic and very accommodating, even opening for breakfast earlier than normal, as we had to be at a 9.30 christening on the Island. Room lovely, very clean, comfortable beds, a good nights sleep. Only a few minutes walk to the beach... More

My two sisters and I stayed for 2 nights recently and we were very impressed with this guest house---very nice clean single rooms with all the amenities you could wish for. Excellent breakfast with a big choice of options. Friendly, helpful staff. I would strongly recommend The Havelock.

We had another great stay at the Havelock, our third visit. Stayed for 5 nights this time. This is a great guest house. The rooms are spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We had room 15, one of the superior rooms, which has a wonderful view out to sea. The shower room is a little bit small, but you don't stay... More

A very comfortable B & B within a few minutes of the sea front and Shanklin Old Village. Clean, bright, well heated room with comfortable bed and good supply of tea and coffee. Slight drawback was absence of bedside table on one side of the double bed. In common with many hotels, bedroom lighting could have been better.Spotless bathroom well... More

Gorgeous decor in the room we had this time (room 8) with a bath and shower over, kingsize bed and single bed. Balcony to sit out on in the morning and enjoy the... More

Just returned from our 8th year at this absolutely and truly wonderful hotel. We always feel like its home from home. Dave and Ann are personable but professional and after all these years we now consider them to be part of our extended family. Nothing changes the rooms are immaculately clean, the dining area pristine and 'Dave's' breakfasts are amongst... More
