I last visited the Isle of Wight back in 1976 and had mentioned for a while now that we should visit again, even if it was just to see what I could remember of the place being as I was only six years old at the time of my last visit. As the whole idea was based on a trip down memory lane we decided to go back to the Edgecliffe, the same place I stayed in 1976 but had no idea what to expect as we hadn’t read any reviews before booking but just felt it was the place we should stay. When arriving we were met at the front door by Dru and Mick where from this point it was obvious we had booked the right place as they were both very friendly and welcoming from the outset, and throughout our stay could see that all they wanted was for us to have a good time (they couldn’t do enough for you). As I have to work away at times I stay in many hotels in the UK and EU throughout the year and can honestly say in comparison the Edgecliffe is the perfect place if you want to stay in a relaxed, friendly, spotlessly clean, comfortable environment that is within easy walking distance of the beach, Shanklin village and old Shanklin. Not forgetting of course the amazing breakfast.... Initially we were only going to return as a one off visit, but as staying here was so pleasurable we will return to the Edgecliffe in the future.

Stay away from home for work often and I have never met better host's than dru and mick. Made you feel so comfortable nothing was to much trouble for them. I would go back and stay again in a heart beat in fact I'm contemplating going here again for pleasure instead of business its that nice.

My wife and I have been returning to the Edgecliffe for quite a few years now. We attend the scooter rally during August bank holiday weekend and the position at Shanklin is ideal. Drew and Mick make a fuss of us and every one who stays. Riding our own scooter we've our own space to park securely, tucked away. Breakfasts are brilliant, rooms are very clean. If you want the beach then it's very close. Thoroughly recommend it.
