We stayed at the the Royston for 4 days/3 nights and it was absolutely faultless. The room was big and the beds extremely comfy. The breakfasts were great and you can help yourself to as much cereal and fruit as you like. The owner was extremely friendly and very welcoming, I could not recommend this place enough to anyone. It's...

A lovely warm welcome on arrival with advice if new to the area. Lovely & clean with comfortable beds. Lovely smiley hostess, who serves an amazing breakfast. Great location with easy access to the beach. It had everything we needed in our room, tea & coffee making facilities, towels, toiletries, tv, hairdryer and radio clock alarm. Highly recommend.

We were house hunting on the Island so needed somewhere that was easily placed for our search. We booked via Red Funnel so it was all paid and sorted by via their web site. The hubby had apparently booked a twin in error. We didn't realise this until we got there and we're asked if we would prefer a double....

Literally booked and went on the same day, after phoning to enquire about a last minute break. The Royson is beautifully quiet, spotlessly clean, and extremely good value. We wish we could have stayed for longer. We are very pleased we found it and won't hesitate to return.

A friendly welcome awaits you on arrival at this beautiful B&B from Claire and Guy. A sea view and spacious double room makes The Royson a great place to stay. A choice of tasty breakfasts in this well presented family run hotel. So much to do and see in the area. Will be booking a longer stay next time. A...

We had a lovely stay at the Royston Guest House. We went with another couple, and both of our rooms were clean and very comfortable. The hosts were really friendly and helpful, and are very accommodating. Breakfast was lovely and enjoyed by all of us!

I have stayed at the Royson three times over the last couple of year and thoroughly enjoyed my visits. Guy and Clare are very welcoming hosts, and I look on my visits as visiting friends rather than hosts. Excellent rooms with all the right facilities. Looking forward to my next visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emphasis at The Royson is on genuine hospitality and delicious home cooking from hearty full English breakfasts to lovingly prepared 3 course evening meals. You will find The Royson ideally situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Shanklin just a minute away from the cliff top path, panoramic views of Sandown Bay and Blueberries licensed cafe. (Cafe open Tuesday to Sunday during the main season) Perfect as a base for exploring the Island or just popping down to the beach. The hustle and bustle of Shanklin town is just 20 minutes walk away or 5 minutes by car or by bus, where you will find bars, restaurants and gift shops, then leave all that behind when you return to the peaceful settings of The Royson. ... more   less
