The previous review by myscimitar, apart from being written by a semi-literate, is unnecessarily damaging to the Bunneys, the proprietors of The Havelock. We stay at The Havelock twice a year when visiting an elderly relative on the island. It is not the cheapest B&B and it is certainly not the most expensive. What it does provide is excellent levels... More

A most enjoyable stay. Ever aspect of this hotel was first class. The breakfasts were particularly enjoyable, offering a lot of local produce, delicious home made bread and jams and a wide variety of cereals and fresh fruits. The afternoon snacks were superb and Anne's home made cakes were delicious. Although we have been visiting the Island for a number... More

Everything about the Havelock is fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were lovely, really nice heated pool, lovely decor, superb breakfasts, owners and staff couldn't be more helpful. We stayed there with our grown up children and their partners and all had a lovely time and would definately stay again.

Very conveniently located for the sea front and local pubs. The rooms were smartly decorated and we had a sea view. The bathroom was titchy but it was spotless and there were nice toiletries suppled. We would have liked a balcony room, but they get booked up months ahead. However, the garden is lovely and there are lots of chairs... More

If you are visiting Shanklin, stay here! The location is ideal, midway between the Chine/beach and Old Village, the rooms are comfortable and the view of the sea was lovely. The pool and decking area to sit out around it were a real bonus, as were the friendly owners, relaxing bar and collection of addictive puzzles to wrestle with whilst... More

The Havelock is a mid size hotel in Shanklin, situated a ten minute walk from the seafront. We visited as a couple in early July 2015, we were placed in a family room which was spacious for the two of us. The bathroom was however something of a joke, requiring tenacity and dedication to sit on the loo! Not much... More
