We booked this hotel based on reviews seen on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome from Sally and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. Our room (room 2) was a good size, very clean and although i was slightly too long for the bed (6ft 3in) it was comfortable.

The location of the hotel is good, a short walk from the seafront and restaurants/bars etc, making this the ideal hotel to stay at in Shanklin.

Booked on the internet, so wasn't sure exactly what we'd get. However, the hotel is an excellent value. My main expectations are safe and clean. The Snowdon met both of those. The hotel is surrounded by other accomodations as well as very nice residences. We were often out walking in the evening but we always felt safe. It was just far enough off of the main roads to be very quiet, but just a few minutes walk to reach shops, resturants, and any other type of busness. In many ways, the Isle of Wight seems more like the ways things were 40 or 50 years agao. Quiet, family focused, though appreciative of the role of visiting tourist. Every one we met was open and friendly.
The twin room was typical in size, and the same for the bathroom. But, as my friend and I came in only to crash for the night, it was sufficient.
Breakfast was an excellent value. I had to request less food after the first day.
Sally was a terrific host, the day we left, she kindly held our cases while we did some last minute sightseeing and shopping. She also called a taxi to collect us. As it was quiet warm when we were there, our room open onto a small enclosed patio. Handy for hanging out our daily washing in complete privacy and also enjoy a bit of breeze.
Thanks for a great stay. Would definetly stay again.

What a welcome back! Mike & Sally are the best hosts around, nothing was too much trouble for us, it was a shame the four poster bed room was not ready as it looked lovey just waiting for a blind for the window but the room was so big & the bathroom was just lovely.
Try the new American Breakfast, a very good start to the day, Mike loves cooking eggs & the scrabbled with Stilton cheese is amazing !

Just a very short stroll in to Old Shanklin & easy to get every where else, we can't wait to go back again.

I can't recommend Snowdon House enough!

Go on give it a go & don't go anywhere else!
