The room was dated, though was clean and very COMPACT!! The beds were lumpy and dipped. (Back ache each morning) Staff are very friendly and well presented, better than the 2 other rival hotels next door. The real let down for us was breakfast; they say they cater for children! Any waiter, chef, caterer should know that childrens food comes... More

We stayed here for five days this week. The location on the beach was excellent with easy access onto the beach, and the Chine and the old village. The owner Annette was helpful in all manner of ways and her staff were a credit to her. The hotel was spotless. The decor nice and neutral we found it hard to... More

I needed a single room and this was good for me. Clean quiet and satisfied my needs. I was doing lots of activities so not spending a lot of time in the hotel. Only needed breakfast and a good quiet and comfortable bed. It had it all for me and service and standards were v good

This is a lovely little hotel right on the beach front. We stayed in a family room which had ample space, and though it was a little noisy at night from the restaurant next door, we couldn't fault it otherwise. We had an en-suite showed room and though there was no see view, the rooms opposite had lovely balconies overlooking... More

We only dined at the Aqua but the food was superb. I was informed that the crab had been caught and prepared that morning and it tasted so good I can easily believe it. The whole meal was delicious but probably the best crab that I have ever tasted.

The hotel was generally very clean. The staff were very friendly. The room 16 we stayed in was nice with fabulous sea views, it was on the small side though. 1 small chair to sit in and 2 on the balcony. The bathroom was ok, very clean, the shower was not the best but it work, pressure fluctuated. We had... More

We were visiting Shanklin after a hearty breakfast at our self catering apartment in Ventnor. It was now 3.30pm and we were ready for our Sunday meal. Being lovers of the Sunday Roast we were looking for eating houses to accommodate us. As usual most places stop serving Sunday lunch about 2pm so we had left it a bit late.... More

Had a brilliant time, everyone very friendly. If you value your sleep though, avoid room 10. Very noisy most of the day. Think it's above the kitchen. If you can get Room 17 it's a perfect single room. Think the two either side are great double rooms. Waking up to the sound of waves is amazing, and the balcony view... More
