We booked our package through Travelzoo on an included 5 day package not knowing what to expect as we generally stay in lodge type accomodation in the uk , so we thought give it a go for something different and we were surprised .
Although a more traditional hotel that to be fair was and maybe is suited to a more mature holidaymaker , the location on a clifftop was superb with views over the sea can only be stunning with a short walk through rylstone gardens opposite to Shanklin old village not to mention the beach via 100+ steps made it a good semi-secluded location .
The staff were very friendly , helpful and deserve full credit working very hard with nothing too much trouble which seems very rare to find these days .
We were allocated room 6 overlooking the lawn/car park area which can only be described as elegant/traditional but was clean and comfortable and the rest of the hotel seemed spotless . Another rare thing was breakfast was cooked to order and so was the evening meal, the only drawback being i thought the menus was a little limited.
We were not dissapointed with our stay which was good value and found it all very relaxing it was nice to find somewhere that actually made you welcome in a genuine way .
One little thing is to watch the car park ,it is limited in size and try stake your claim to a space before teatime
