We booked a weekend away for our anniversary and was surprised on arrival with a bottle of wine waiting in our room.
The new owners were friendly and very welcoming, our room was very comfortable, on the second floor with beautiful views over Sandown Bay. The room was decorated in neutral tones with contrasting curtains, throw and cushions, extremely pleasant and clean.
We enjoyed the breakfasts starting with a choice of fruit, cereals and juices followed by our choice of cooked breakfast with the most delicious scrambled egg. I had no problem with choosing the cooked items the evening before.
The walk into Shanklin on the cliff top path is 10-15 minutes away and is quite hilly in part, no problem if you are fit and enjoy walking, alternatively Sandown is 10-15 minutes in the opposite direction and the coastal path takes you through a nice park area. Alternatively you could go down the steps by Blueberry cafe which brings you onto the beach and walk into Shanklin or Sandown via the promenade.
All in all we had a lovely relaxing weekend, and have booked to return later in August.
