This is a very pleasant and well appointed B&B in the heart of the town. The hosts Sarah and Gareth are very welcoming and are there for a chat. The Breakfast is superb and every day there are two specials - that are just that, very special. We stayed in the St Helens room and it was perfectly fine. And... More

This was our first time properly exploring the IOW and chose the Old Shanklin Guest House last minute for our stay. We did however take into account the exceptional rating the B&B received from Booking.com when making our choice. We weren't disappointed. The hotel was very clean and tidy; the room very pleasant; the breakfast good. Minor gripes: tight parking,... More

We stayed in the St Helens suite at the end of July and we could not fault our stay in any way. The guest house is in a perfect location for the shops and restaurants of Old Shanklin. The room was beautiful with a very comfortable bed and a large bathroom. The suite was spotlessly clean and the bathroom had... More

This was our second visit to this lovely home from home.The location is perfect for eating out with a variety of options around the corner. Sarah and Gareth were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive and their breakfasts were what got us out of our very comfy bed every morning. Outstanding.

Excellent large bathroom. The breakfasts were first class and plentiful with best quality local products, home made bread and jams. Perfect location, a few minutes walk... More

We stayed in the St Helens room on the ground floor of this guest house which had a large en-suite bathroom with a large shower cubicle. The room is a good size, tastefully decorated in neutral tones. I wasnt struck on the artwork in the room - but clearly that is highly subjective. The bed was large (lovely) and had... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in the Bonchurch room which was spacious, well appointed and included a double sofa and a good sized TV which made the room an ideal place to chill out. Situated in a quiet side street and within walking distance of the old shanklin town high street which has an abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants... More
