If you have a stressful job and want a relaxing location for a holiday you can't beat the Rylstone Manor. Set in a quiet park, My wife and I really enjoyed our week here. Mike and Carole are the perfect hosts and made us feel welcome in everyway. We were in the Beech room that had a four poster bed that had a nice firm matress and no lumps and bumps.
I thought the teddies were a nice touch and lent a bit of originality to the rooms. We came back from a day out to find ours playing cards.
The decor was just how we prefer it but then I'm not perticular about any unless it's ultra modern or grubby. Angie and Jasmine the maids were very polite and made all the guests very welcome and readily struck up conversation. Angie provided us with a lot of knowledge of the Islands attractions at breakfast times which came in useful. Breakfast was cereals and a nice healthy fry up.
We only ate in on one evening as when were on holiday we like to try different resteraunts and pubs, and Shanklin has no shortage of them within walking distance of the hotel. Mike cooked the meal perfect. I had the roast sirloin of beef in a red wine jus which was really tender and my mouth is watering just writing this. My wife had Dover Sole which she really enjoyed
The park has a Bandstand outside the hotel and on Tuesday to Thursdays between 8.00pm and 9.00pm you can enjoy a free concert by local bands although they like you to make a donation and it's a pound for the deckchairs but well worth it for a bit of Glen Miller.
We are thinking of returning here in the future as I think the south of the island does benefit from slightly better weather and will be looking for another relaxing stay.
