Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We booked this hotel the same day we arrived as we had decided to stay longer on the island. We was given a room with sea view and balcony which was perfect. The room was very nice and very spacious. It a 2 star hotel but in our opinion it should be 3 star. It had a lovely terrace with views of shanklin bay. Its a famlly run hotel and the staff and managment were all very helpful and friendly. We would return to this hotel and recommend to friends and family

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra and ask for a room with sea view and balcony

I was on the IoW for a few days holiday and stayed at The Harrow Lodge for 3 nights. The room was clean and nicely decorated and all the staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is beautifully situated at the top of the esplanade (just by the lift down to the beach), with lovely views of the sea. From here it is easy to explore the island on foot, bike or by car.
Ideal for a budget break.

We visited here for a short break on the 20 May with friends. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable, staff very helpful and friendly and with a good sense of humour! We laughed and smilled a lot! Food was good, though next time we would go just B&B as the bar meals were very reasonable and very good, not that the EM wasnt, just that we are not used to so many big meals! I would reccommend this place every time, and I hope we will be able to return in the not too distant future!

Room Tip: We were in room 20 on ground floor, had a small balcony to side, dont know what the rest of rooms we...

A friendly family run hotel in this idyllic part of the UK. The food was excellent and the room very spacious and comfortable. The staff were always on hand to answer your questions or help you in any way they could. The hotel is on the Shanklin seafront close to Shanklin Chine. The seaside town of Sandown is a bus ride away and well worth a visit. We went to the Needles and quite a few National Trust properties which there are many on the island to visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

Just got back from a two night stay at the Harrow Lodge Hotel in Shanklin. On arrival we were handed the keys to our room which was on the ground floor extension to the rear of the main property. When entering the room it was very cold but it is October so it is to be expected. Heating came on twice a day, once in the evening and once in the morning. Room was very clean, with fresh clean bedding and clean towels but the pillows were rock hard so I suggest bringing your own pillows!!! There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

The downsides of staying in the extension were that the walls were paper thin! you could hear every noise from people staying in the other rooms. For example, in the middle of the night you could clearly hear so well a person in another room going to the toilet as if they were doing it on the floor! The bathroom was very small and not very spacious at all but very clean and the maids cleaned the room/bathroom every morning.


There was a breakfast service every morning which was lovely and very appetising. It was delivered by a friendly waitress who will endeavour to make sure you have everything you need.

All in all a pleasant enough stay, location was good for the town and the beach with a five minute walk to each. I would recommend to anyone who wanted somewhere to stay for a short break.

We stayed her for a week whilie we toured the island. The breakfast was good and the waitress lovely. The location was excellent and the view from our balcony of the sea was lovely. We had clean towels every day, which was lovely. Not so lovely was the tiny 'en-suite' - so small that we had to dry ourselves in the shower cubicle, the water did not drain away for several minutes, the water was either freezing cold or boiling hot, and the gap between the sliding door and the sink was so small that you could not stand without opening the door whilst cleaning your teeth. Not so lovely was the (approx) 6" gap between the bed and the window. Not so lovely was the fact that the bedding was never changed and in fact the bed was never made - just the duvet straightened! Not so lovely having a bottom sheet too small for the 2 single mattresses on our (supposed) double bed - every night it pinged off and every evening WE had to straighten it out. Not so lovely having cobwebs all over the ceiling, or a light in the loo that never worked.
We formed the impression that the owners wanted to cram as many rooms as possible into the building at the expense of the comfort of the visitors.
When paying the bill at the end of our stay we expected to be asked if all was OK - not surprisingly we were not! Very disappointed with this 'hotel' - would NOT recommend. Such a shame.

Room Tip: Dont stay there!
