I've stayed in ones in both Sandown and Shanklin over the last few years. The Shanklin one was in Atherley Road (name forgotten, before I became TA aware !). That's a good area to start your google search for B&B's as it's near the famous lift, saving you the long trek back up those cliffs : www.hows.org.uk/personal/rail/misc/shank.htm

I'm delighted to report that the cheap and cheerful seaside B&B lives on in these locations - simple family holidays are alive and well !

For what it's worth, I preferred Shanklin - the pubs are slightly better for one thing (try this one shanklinchine.co.uk/index.php/fishermans-cot… ) and there seemed more to do there, although Sandown probably has a better beach.

Your post brings back memories of long gone Hotels.

Along the Cliff Path at Lake, There used to be Mount Pleasant Hotel and Sea Court, further along was Thorncliff - now Lorron Hotel. At Sandown there was The Royal Cliff Hotel, now turned into apartments.
