Spent an evening at The Fawley prior to a show at Shanklin theatre. We were welcomed by the owner who was extremely helpful with information about the local area, and made us feel right at home. The room has all the amenities you could need (hairdryer, tea/coffee, toiletries) fabulous hot shower and comfortable bed. The breakfast choice is also excellent...

My wife and I brought our two small boys over from the USA to ride the Isle of Wight Christmas steam train December 10th and wanted to stay in Shanklin. The owners of The Fawley were so kind and hospitable, the room was so nice and welcoming, and breakfast was absolutely incredible -- definitely ask for the pancakes! We were...

We stayed for a long weekend and from the moment we arrived we were treated as honoured guests. Service was excellent and the breakfast superb. The room was beautifully decorated (rm3) and had everything we could need for our stay. Great location too and only a short walk to the town or the seafront. Knowledge of local attractions and current...

Reasonably well situated up from the sea front. Steep hill to access the sea front. Limited parking spaces, which may be a problem in season, due to limited on-road parking Comfortable room with excellent breakfast each day. The hostess listens to your food likes/ dislikes and caters accordingly. Do contact the hotel to book, rather than use booking sites and...

We had a wonderful stay at The Fawley. The rooms were perfectly clean and were beautifully decorated, breakfast was delicious, and the owners were lovely and super helpful, even booking the ferries for us from Southampton. It is the cutest little inn with information about some of the sights on the island and a variety of board games if you...

This was a quick visit for a working weekend and I was attracted by the high ratings given to this guest house. I was not disappointed. Reasonable price, spotless accommodation and outstanding breakfast. Also free parking - if you arrive early enough.

This was our first stay at The Fawley but certainly won't be our last. From assisting us with booking our ferry (and getting residents rates which made for a decent saving) through to laying on extras of everything to accommodate our 5 year old, Debbie and her team made our visit completely hassle free. Our room was lovely, beautifully clean...

A big Thank you goes to everybody at The Fawley for a lovely stay, your room was most comfortable, spotlessly clean and your standards should be rated at A+.

We chose this Guest House based on the very good reviews, and were not disappointed. It is well located, within walking distance of the beach and the centre of Shanklin. The room was fine, on the first floor, beds very comfortable and was spotless. We stayed two nights and there was only one other family staying on the first night....
