I travelled with my Mother with Alfa. Our coach driver, Tony, was informative and helpful. Really enjoyed the day trips! The Shanklin Hotel was absolutely fine, no problems. Large room with sea views. Special mention to our waiter, Alex. Lovely young man, sorry we teased you!

This is a good hotel if you are with a coach party which I think it mainly caters for. The interior is a bit tired and dated and the staff are helpful. The food is not of any great quality or quantity but adequate, so nothing special and there is a lot worse.

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.
