We booked this hotel for a short break back in February when the weather was at its worst giving us something to look forward to in May. On arrival we were welcomed by Bill given a pot of tea and shown to our room. It was a dual aspect room with one window giving a sea view [ Room 7 ] all new furniture and was spotlessly clean. The presentation of towels and bathroom essentials added to the depth of welcome. Jackie served up excellent home cooked food never letting you leave hungry !!!! both for breakfast and evening meal. Choices were selected for the next days breakfast and Evening meals with plenty to choose from. Very polite and courteous and efficient staff in the dining room who were never intrusive. Well stocked bar with reasonable prices including the Hambledon House brilliant value for money. The hotel is well situated for the town/Old Town , Theatre or beach roughly only 5 minute walk either way. Both Bill and Jackie are excellent hosts making you feel at home in this warm and cosy hotel. We look forward to returning in the near future. This Hotel is ideal for a relaxing break being close to all Shanklin amenities.
