We stayed here for 4 nights over the May bank holiday. The hotel was easy to find and about 10 mins walk from old Shanklin which was lovely with a great choice of pubs and restaurants.

We stayed for one night and we were greeted by a lovely couple and we were shown to a lovely little room. The beds were a little uncomfortable and the light bulb had blown but the hotel was in a lovely location just minutes away from the seafront.

Things were newly decorated with good taste but a slightly DIY feel. The room didn't seem to have heating in it... maybe they only let this one out in the summer? We were comfortable anyway.

Wanted a value overnight stay. Got much more than that. Lovely staff. Welcoming lounge. Nice bar. Very comfy beds. Only downside was the very poor shower. Ample parking. Good location. Excellent breakfast. Really very good value for £75
