Really enjoyed our stay here, we have visited the island a lot of the past few years and this is certainly one of the nicest b&bs in shanklin. Our room was spacious, light and clean with a comfy bed. The bathroom was with a shower but again a decent size and clean. Location very good just a short walk from... More

We recently stayed at this B&B for 2 nights in November 2016. Parking was fine and the premises has an older charm to it. The rooms were clean, no refridgerator. Breakfast was very well done, with many options available. The house is also very close to the beach. The owners were quite polite and friendly. When comparing this B&B to... More

Took a coach to the Island for the Beer and Buses weekend, me and my partner chose to stay here. We were a little late arriving due to unforeseen circumstances but throughout the stay our hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming amd even paid a visit to the classic bus event we were attending.

Just spent a lovely three days at this b + b with the family. The owners really do make this place, they couldn't do enough for us. Stunning breakfast every morning and a freshly made room to come back to in the afternoon. If your looking for a clean and friendly place to stay in Shanklin then look no further.... More

A lovely bed and breakfast with friendly hosts. Stayed in the twin room which was a little on the small side, but was perfectly adequate for a weekend, clean, and the size reflected in the price. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast also very good, though worth noting you sit around a table with other guests. Very pleasant stay... More

We stayed with Grae and Margi last week during our three day trip house hunting in the Isle of Wight. We had a lot of bother with Booking.com who originally handled our booking as our plans were constantly changing and I kept asking Grae to change our arrival dates. It's a long story but suffice to say that Grae did... More

Clarence House was a good fit for our 3 day trip to the Isle of Wight. We knew we wouldn't stray far from the Shanklin beachfront, which exceeded expectations- the beach was clean, with really nice restaurants along the strip. Buses come to Shanklin every half hour so you have to time it right and bus tickets are quite expensive... More
