“All is not what it seems”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2011

If travelling as a couple ensure that you are not allocated rooms 12-15 that are family rooms accessed through the games room.
Noisy and crying children can be clearly heard through the thin walls, especially early in the morning.
An inclusive table dote dinner meal was included in the cost of the first night and was not worth the indicated cost of £24 per head that would be otherwise paid. Lamb steak was sinewy and other customers also complained.
There are plenty of good eating out places nearby that you would be hard pushed to spend £24.
Smoked haddock served at breakfast was the smallest portion that I have ever been served.

Room Tip: No loyalty program.

This is our second short break at Lucombe Manor. Food and service first rate on each occasion. Ideally located on Shanklin cliff top near to picturesque chine. The young staff members were extremely pleasant and helpful The outside of hotel was slightly shabby, but that will not stop us returning. Ferry inclusive short breaks are good value.

Room Tip: Good value low season ferry inclusive deals

We have just returned after spending a wonderful few days at Luccombe Manor Country House Hotel. We only wish we could have stayed longer. What a fabulous find. The Hotel surpassed our expectations in all ways. The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. Nothing was any trouble and all the staff without exception were fantastic. My husband and I and our 10 year old son can't wait to return as soon as possible. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: The hot tub was fabulous.

As soon as we walked into hotel the staff were so friendly and showed us around and to the sister hotel next door. The breakfasts were very good... have the smoked haddock, after a walk on the beach early morning, it was my tastiest meal of the day. A very relaxing holiday, and well worth the money,it was really lovely to use the indoor swimming pool next door. Will be returning shortly.

The hotel provided everything we had hoped for and expected. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our bedroom was clean, comfortable and had a superb view overlooking the gardens and the sea. The selection and quality of food was very good, well presented and ample indeed we never managed to eat all the vegetables provided. Having stayed on the Isle of Wight several times in recent years this is certainly a hotel we would return to without any hesitation and would recommend to our friends. The hotel does have a swimming pool but on the occasion of our visit it was dry and seemed to be in the process of renovation, however the pool at adjoining Luccombe Hall hotel was available for guests to use.

We have recently spent one week in Luccombe Manor. The hotel is perfectly situated on the clifftop overlooking Shanklin Beach. 150 steps (yes, I have counted them several times on the way up and down) lead to the beach.
Shanklin Old Village, Shanklin Chine or Shanklin High Street are nearby (less than 5 mins walk).
The hotel is a Victorian manor with a beautiful and impressive interior.
We had a nice double room of standard size. The bed was very comfortable (no back ache in the morning...). Both room and bathroom were clean.
Breakfast was always delicious, there was a good variety of cooked breakfast (e.g. vegetarian breakfast).
The restaurant offers lunch and dinner if desired. Unfortunately I cannot judge the meals as we did not eat there (by no means because of the restaurant, but we just don´t like warm meals at night).
Moreover there`s a bar where you can relax and have a drink at the end of the day.
The staff was friendly.

Should we ever return to Shanklin we would definitely book this hotel again!
