Just back from a Friday to Monday Shearings coach break. Contrary to some other reviewers we had a decent room (no. 442) on the first floor, with an extra bed if needed. Ok a tiny television but we hardly watch tv on holiday.
The hotel has obviously seen better days but has a very English charm and a nice relaxed atmosphere fronted by pleasant gardens.
Food was good and well presented, The staff were very efficient and pleasant.
The main excursion a 'round the island' tour was a bit misleading but ok if you want tea shops or a pearl shop at each stop. As the weather was a bit grim that morning, I suppose it was a day out!
We did not take the Sunday optional excursion but instead we found the train station (about 300 mtrs or 10 minutes away) and spent an excellent day in Ryde. The line ends at Shanklin going the other way.
Steve the driver kept the coach informed of local history and did a great job on a busy Bank Holiday weekend.
An excellent value for money break which I would gladly recommend.
