We ate here several nights in August excellent fresh food and very helpful friendly staff. Family friendly with a terrace looking out over the sea.The food was very good value with a varied menu. We visited here with my parents and our children. One of Shanklins best kept secrets !

We stayed in room 18(double) with 2 teenagers in room 17(twin) and found this to be a fantastic base during the wettest week of the summer. Both rooms were nicely decorated, the staff were really friendly and the food from Helen's Bistro was lovely(see earlier review). There was quite a lot of noise from the bar on the weekend but...

Call into here for the best food on the island. The restaurant is called Helens Bistro. The food is amazing lovingly prepared and good portions at reasonable prices. The views out to sea are really special too....don't miss out on this place

This was the second time we had stayed at The Bayhouse, first with the previous owners and now under new local management. We stayed for three nights. I wasn't overly impressed of our first stay but due to it being new owners, the reviews and the wonderful location and amenities in the form of large dining room windows and a... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your time with us, but you seem a little confused on some details! We took over the bayhouse two years ago, we laminated the bedroom floors and redecorated using the beach themes, the rooms would of been carpeted on your stay before with the previous owners and badly painted walls !! Also the... More

We visited here for an evening meal in our tour of the island and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful on arrival. The nachos were not available as it was an evening but on asking the chef agreed to do them, and my word they were the best nachos we have ever had, with chilli and jalapenos... More

Had the most wonderful day here. Buffet was lovely. Atmosphere was perfect. Nothing was to much trouble. Staff were very friendly and professional. Afterwards 19 family members stayed for dinner and the food was above and beyond. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

The food was delicious and it felt really fresh and local.I absolutely loved the location, with the stunning view, close to the sea and very close to the village Main Street with restaurants and amenities. I found it also very easy to reach it walking... More

A very lovely location - difficult for our taxi driver to find the car park for it though. The bedroom was small, but fully fit for purpose and clean, had everything I'd want in a hotel room :) A neat layout and helpful staff in the hotel. Impressive food, good prices at Helen's Bistro next door. I'd definitely recommend, particularly... More

Our first problem was getting to the hotel. We knew where it was but the one way streets made it very difficult to actually arrive there. I feel a little clearer directions on their website/booking site might be helpful. But the sea views, when we did get there were great. The room was fine, fairly newly decorated with the beach...
