Stayed at Snowdon House 9th-16th July. Part of bowls tour to IOW, where five of us "single room blokes" could not be accommodated in the main Ocean View Hotel due to lack of rooms. I think talking to other members of the group that we got the best deal. My room (No,2) was like the rest of the building nicely... More

I had a one night trip to visit family and friends, and found Snowdon house. Lovely welcome by Sally on arrival. Room was beautifully clean and well appointed. Very good breakfast on Sunday . The only,small, downside was the shower took quite a few minutes to get hot. I would have no hesitation in recommending Snowdon House.

We felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. Sally made us very welcome and ensured that we had all we needed. We only stayed for one night in order to visit an event at Shanklin Theatre but our lovely room was certainly sufficient for a much longer stay. We were a family party of two couples... More

Once again my wife and I had a few days away at this really good guest house. The rooms as allways are spotless and the breakfast are really good. We have been coming for many years now and the high standard never drops. Roll on our next visit.
