We stayed at the Queensmead for six nights end of July. The hotel is close to the beach, just a minute's walk and a few minutes walk the other way takes you into Shanklin town centre. We had Room 23 which was at the rear of the hotel, we enjoyed sunsets from our room every evening! Room all amenities including miniature toiletries, freshly laundered towels daily, no hair drier but ask at Reception for one which is yours for the duration of your stay. Shower weak spray and difficult to retain constant temperature. Mealtimes were set times - breakfast 0830 hours and evening meal 1830 hours - food excellent! Breakfast choices include kippers and haddock! Evening meals three-courses, excellent menu to choose from and all home-cooked, particularly enjoyed fish cake starters, salmon fillet in prawn/lobster sauce and lemon/lime cheesecake.
We enjoyed good weather for the duration of our stay, so much so we were able to take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool located at the rear of the hotel and the surrounding patio area provided a lovely sun-trap.
The Bar opens at 1800 hours, nice to enjoy a glass of wine before dinner. Bottles of wine for your table averaged £13.00 per bottle.
Daily newspapers available at Reception each morning.
We had an early start on departure day but Barry and staff provided full breakfasts at 0600 hours enabling us to be on our coach back to the ferry port in good time waved off with our pre-ordered packed lunches!
Thanks to Barry and all staff from waiters/waitresses to the cleaning girls, very enjoyable stay!
