“Pleasent B&B”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We spent 3 nights at Clarence House at the end of March . We stayed in the downstairs double -en-suit which is a good sized bright room with two large windows ,it was clean & comfortable with plentiful tea & coffee making facilities. The en-shower room is quite small & room in shower cubical tight but good powerful shower & lovely thick bath towels
Breakfast was beautifully cooked and a choice of cereals/ fruit juice to start.
The B&B is well situated for touring all round the island which we did in our three day visit Lots of magnificent cliff top walks & places of interest. Don't miss Osbourne House & views from cliffs at Blackgang Chine

My wife and I have stayed at the Clarence many many times. The owners Graham and Margi are fantastic.The rooms are great. The breakfasts are great. Dont just sit there. Book and stay.The hotel is easily walkable into Shanklin and the beach. Shanklin town is in 2 "parts" the new and the old. Both have their own attributes. Shopping is available in the new. Old world charm in the old.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

My Husband and I recently stayed here for three nights (6th-9th September) our first time on the Island. Having not stayed in many B&B'S wasn't quite sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Margi and Gaeme were very welcoming and friendly hosts, our room was both comfortable and clean, always plenty of tea/coffee, biscuits and fresh bottle of water each in the room.Breakfast was beautifully done (I miss it already). All in all we had a lovely stay and will definitely be going back.

28th August - 2nd Sept 2012 Margi & Graeme are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts as substantial as you wish to order and beautifully cooked. We would highly recomend Clarence House as a very good value B & B with high standards. Thank you Margi & Graeme. We will certainly return in the future. Nigel & Pat, Grays Essex.

We booked for three nights for a short break on the IOW.We had a lovely room upstairs with the most comfortable bed.Both my wife and I had our best nights sleep in ages.Breakfast was superb and Margot was both charming and attentive.Although the weather was not that great we had a great time on the IOW which was helped by our stay at Clarence House.I would fully recommend this lovely B&B to anyone.Thanks Margot and Graham
