We had a fabulous 3 night,half board stay in a hotel with character. From the moment we arrived, greeted with a cheery smile, the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.The meals where delicious with plenty of variety on the menu.In fact I would go as far as saying the food was at least as good as any hotels I have stayed in and this includes the 7 star hotels in Dubai. I must add I have been staying in quality hotels for 60 t0 80 nights a year for the last 30 years. All meals were freshly cooked and so well presented.The sea view room offered unsurpassed views across the English Channel and.was well appointed and spotless. Although the windows were single glazed the bedroom temperature was adequate even though 2 of our nights had clear skies and early morning frost. However the sun soon brought the daytime temperature up for enjoying the island and the moon shining over the sea at night was so romantic.
The hotel building is probably about 100 years old, well maintained and decorated in character. The dining room has large single glazed windows so a light sweater is advisable at dinner time in winter, but worth it for the view of the moon shining over the sea on clear evenings.I doubt whether the local council would allow double glazing of such a beautiful old building. Drinks at the bar were reasonably priced and wine was good quality.
The hotel is very conveniently located, just a few minutes stroll from Shanklin town with plenty of free onsite parking.
We want to come back to the Luccombe Manor Country House Hotel for another off season short break!
We thoroughly recommend this traditional British hotel.It has much to recommend it over the international hotel chain offerings.
