Leisureplex, Customer Care Team at Shanklin Hotel, responded to this review

Dear John H I was sorry to see that you were disappointed with the travel arrangements on your recent holiday. It would appear from your review that you booked the holiday out of our North West brochure and as a result, you travelled back on yourself. We do explain in our North West brochure that passengers should ‘consider the relative... More

He gave us a warm welcome and small introduction to the hotel. On arrival in reception, room keys were already there for us with no delay. Luggage was taken up to our rooms,... More

We stayed at the hotel during the May bank holiday. All the photos were taken probably more than 20 years ago. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful but the building and facilities are need to update. Especially the sauna room can never be hot enough as the door is broken for example. The hotel room wall is not thick... More

The beds were really comfy and the pool was nice but the best thing of all was the dinners there. There is a waiter called Alex who served us and he was so funny and nice! Go there and please go to table nine because Alex serves table nine! Other reviews will say that lots of old people stay there... More
