I had a fabulous evening meal in the Aqua Hotel last night. We started with the Crab ramekin, which was absolutely full of crab and tasted beautiful. Then I had the fish pie that was to die for. My friend had liver and bacon and that was beautiful too. Fortunately the weather was so warm we were able to eat... More

Stopped for lunch and drinks. Have to say this place was excellent. Food was hot with waitress service place you order inside. There was steps up to the entrance didn't see any wheelchair access. We sat outside the view was great. Toilets spotlessly clean. As was the rest of what I saw. There was also home made food.

Stopped here for Lunch with daughter and grandchildren whilst on holiday. Lovely location and the food was 5 star. Sunday roast beef for the adults and chicken for the children cooked to perfection with masses of tasty vegetables. Not stayed in the hotel but will definitely consider this on a further trip. Hotel clean modern and service was excellent.

We wanted a much needed break while visiting family on the Isle of Wight so we chose the Aqua as we stayed here a few years ago. James and Annette have been the owners for a number of years and it was wonderful to see them again. The hotel has been refurbished and is fresh, clean and modern. We had... More

We enjoy the Shanklin Chine and seafront with its amusements, beach shops, remnants of PLUTO and memorial to the pier. We had been heading to the Steamer Inn which we love and have visited many times but the wait was too long. Having arrived on the Island a few hours earlier we were at the beginning of our two week... More

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
