“Good location in Shanklin.”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

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.

Room Tip: A sea view room would be nice but not essential.

The hotel is in a nice location on a clifftop with nice views, a short walk from Shanklin's old village. The neighborhood is very quiet and pleasant. The hotel itself could be beautiful but at this stage the decor looks a bit dated. The blood red carpet in the hall is an eyesore. Our room had nice views but looked old fashioned with a shoebox size bathroom.The non slip mat in the shower was mouldy which is not a big deal but we had paid around £200 per night for the room so expected better. The breakfast was mediocre and we had to stand in line for a while in front of the overcrowded toasting machine. The pool was nice and heated. The hot tub was nice to have but never came on and we had to share the space with dead flies. Overall it could really be a great hotel given the location but it felt tired and overpriced instead.

This was our second stay here and we would certainly return again. Rooms, food and staff all excellent and the the location is superb although the car park could do with proper marking to maximise its potential.

The staff were amazing, friendly and helpful. Met by Julie on arrival, a warm welcome and although we were early for our check in she organised a pot of coffee and a comfortable wait in the lounge.

Charlotte and Richard were great, really looking after us during service at Breakfast and Dinner, made us feel special and always had a smile, we saw them, morning, noon and night, they were obviously working very hard and long hours but this didn't stop them being amazing.

Barry always came and had a word checking that all was well and Jackie on reception was always a pleasure, booking our table for dinner and helping with any of our needs.

I don't know the chef's name but I take my hat off to him, the food far exceeded our expectations, great portions, great choice, always hot and well presented. 10/10

Thank you to all off you, we had a wonderful 4 night stay :)

We love this hotel and have been many times. The view alone would be worth the trip but the friendly, helpful and courteous staff, the great breakfasts - very good food overall, comfortable rooms etc all add to its charms. The location is excellent with buses at end of road for non-drivers - IOW is lovely and a journey with views from the top of the bus - fab. Free use of pool etc at Luccombe Hall - five minutes walk - in fact next door. Wonderful cliff top walks. Absolutely love it - just hope it doesn't change!

We have just returned from a short stay and must firstly say we are so glad we took no notice of some of the previous review. We found the hotel with its friendly staff and excellent chef a great place to stay. We were totally relaxed and found the hotel clean. People have commented that the hotel is outdated, so we would say, 'go stay in a modern hotel'! The hotel has so much charm. We will certainly be returning to Luccombe Manor. Thank you.
