This hotel is in a good location just a short walk down to the seafront. Most staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good, apart from vegetarian options. However the milk was off a couple of times during our stay, so maybe better checks on storage and dates are needed. Lovely warm pool, which is small, but we had it...

Stayed here for business and found the staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and some have lovely sea views. Shanklin beach and sea front is very classic British seaside, great for families. Breakfast was hearty and again service was great. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a lovely seaside holiday and a classic English hotel.

Check in was easy, very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed overnight for a social event and the food was good, especially given they were catering for 100 people.

Can't really fault the hotel as such. Nice big room, big comfy bed and a great view of the channel. Problem was there was a coachload of "Turkey and Tinsel" revellers at the hotel and just two other "independent" couples, so at meal times it was manic and when the "T&T's" went out on a trip deserted. The "T&T's" had...

We had a lovely room with great sea views.It was excellent. The hotel is perfect for a walk along the promenade or a stroll into Shanklin. Everywhere is either up or down a hill but if you're okay with that you'll have a great time.
