Just returned home from a very pleasant holiday at the Luccombe Manor. The location of the hotel is very good,in a nice quiet area above Shanklin Chine with access to the coastal path and beach, albeit a set of steep steps to the beach. The hotel was very comfortable, our room and ensuite were fresh and very clean, adequate space for my wife and me.
We were on an autumn special deal, which included the ferry and half board accommodation, plus a cream tea on arrival, (which turned out to include scones and cake, in our case!!) the staff were all very nice, polite, helpful and gave good and efficient service, especially the two lads in the restaurant. The food, both at breakfast and evening meals,was of good quality and the choices enabled us to have something different each night, of course breakfast has to be Full English!! Of which I am an expert, having cooked it every weekend for my family for the past ?? Many years!! The manor did not disappoint in this area.
Being a bitter drinker, I did not partake of the Hotel priced (£3.60 pint) Tetley beer, but instead we made the short walk to the village, where there are pubs. We found that King Harry's bar had both the best selection of good beers and was marginally cheaper then the others. Second place would go to the Village Inn, who had Doombar on tap.
We are planning to go back, once the Swiss Cottage is opened at Osbourne House and will certainly consider the Luccombe Manor as our base.
