The Belmont Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #10 of 51 Shanklin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Couldn't have asked for a warmer reception from the hosts, the room was so cosy and comfortable, breakfast was perfectly cooked both mornings and in general the attention to detail was lovely. We needed somewhere to stay for 2 nights off-season for a short, quiet break and can honestly say staying at The Belmont enhanced the enjoyment of our little holiday. Great value for money!

Chosen because we were visiting off season and needed to find a new hotel as our usual one, like many others, closes off season. Perfect hotel, confortable and homely with great hosts, great room, great meals.

Stayed for a couple of nights during the off season. The owners did everything they could to make us comfortable and welcome. Generous breakfast with plenty of choice and located in a good area near the beach and some nice pubs. Recommended.

From the moment we arrived we were pampered and made to feel most welcome by our hosts, Des and Lynda. It's the extra touches that make the Belmont so special; the complimentary wine, chocolates, fresh fruit in addition to an extensive toiletry range in the bathroom and a well stocked tea tray. Our room is spacious, warm and comfortable with a lovely view across the sea - Des even thoughtfully provides binoculars (and a list of shipping) so we can identify the ships passing by on their way to Portsmouth and Southampton.

The Hotel is superbly located only a minute or two from the beach and a 5 minute level walk from the local shops and amenities. We like the Belmont's location as it is so near public transport hubs such as the bus station, rail station and nearby bus stops. You do not need a car at the Belmont; the buses take you all over the Island (a rover ticket is very economical) and there is a superb link via rail/ferry/rail all the way to London Waterloo and Victoria. Shanklin is also a good base for cycling and Des (a keen cyclist himself) will provide you with all the information about recommended routes.

We love the well-stocked bar downstairs, you can have evening meals there if you do not feel like venturing out to a local restaurant, and water, tea, coffee and biscuits are provided in the spacious downstairs sitting room. A computer is provided for guests near to reception for guests to use - so you can leave your heavy laptop/tablets at home. The recently-refurbished dining room has lovely garden views and we have seen red squirrels darting from tree to tree. The breakfast is superb with an excellent menu selection including speciality teas and coffees, a continental option if you prefer this, and a delicious comprehensive cooked breakfast served on piping hot plates with all the trimmings - see our photo. Lynda is happy to vary the menu to suit individual tastes - for example we prefer poached eggs to fried.

The Belmont is perfect for us because our hosts are local to the Isle of Wight and can provide excellent knowledge and information about the Island, in addition to being so friendly and helpful. We will certainly return again!

Room Tip: Try room 15 which is spacious and on the first floor with a lovely view of the sea.

This was my first visit to the Isle of White, although my friend had visited many times before but had never stayed in this hotel. We arrived tired and a little grouchy after quite a long drive, only to be greeted by a VERY warm welcome by Des and Linda.
We had planned to get away from it all, discover the Island and go all over the place, but found ourselves having so much fun at The Belmont, that most of that went out of the window! We did manage to get out and about to visit the local pubs and tea-rooms which were great, but found ourselves wanting to go back to The Belmont before long!
We started the day with a very good breakfast with a wide range of continental foods, juices, teas, fresh coffee and fruit to choose from NOT TO MENTION THE FULL ENGLISH, WHICH WAS FAB!!!!
The rooms are tastefully decorated, very comfortable and are en suite with a choice of shower or over-shower baths. Tea and coffee making faciliies are available in the rooms as is a hairdryer and towels etc. not to mention boutique style toiliteries which again is a really nice touch. The rooms are very reasonably priced, and there is an extensive menu to choose from should you fancy anything from a light snack to a three course meal. The food was very good, and was served in a very homely and relaxed atmosphere which I loved. The bar is well stocked and the hours are flexible which was probably not a good thing to tell us, but bless Des, he never complained once!!!
In short, this is a fun and friendly family run business where we were made to feel very welcome and at home. So much so in fact, that we decided to stay an extra night! My friend and I would both highly recommend this place and we are already planning our next trip to what we now feel is our new "Home from Home." Thanks again guys for a wonderful stay. Kind Regards, Rosie and Niels.

Room Tip: We found the rooms to be quiet and comfortable, but because I only required two straight- forward do...
