We have just returned from a 2 night stay here. Sue and Alan have paid a lot of attention to detail in their lovely guest house. Stunning view from the bedroom. Room was very clean and good tea and coffee facilities. Delicious breakfast. Happy to recommend to friends and family. Good location too! 20 minute walk to Shanklin.
