We had a great three night stay at The Carlton. Bob, Anne and the team were great hosts and we were made to be very welcome. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay on the IOW. This was our 9th visit to The Carlton and we are booked for 2017. The accommodation is very well maintained, clean and... More

Their staff were also polite and helpful too. The whole place was clean and beautifully maintained, with lovely rooms and a super large en suite, not... More

We are a family of four just got back from Carlton Hotel (Shaklin Town), well from Bob and Anne's wonderful hospitality. They make it look easy from booking the ferry (inclusive) to cup of tea at the arrival. Anne is a busy bee from showing us all the ins and outs to health and safety aspects of the surrounding as...
