Stayed here while working on the island. Room was good and clean, excellent shower in en suite. Good facilities in the hotel and the town centre is very close. Very friendly owner and he makes an excellent cooked breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

I booked one night in this hotel as a special treat for my husband's birthday and we were not disappointed! Well located in a quiet side road , just a couple of minutes walk and we were in the main high street of Shanklin. The room and en-suite were spotlessly clean and we had excellent beverage facilities available to us in our room.The decor is a little old -fashioned but in keeping with the building and our host Mick reminded us of what real customer care and service mean - even though he had fallen prey to a nasty cold! The breakfast was hearty and well cooked and again Mick was on hand to supply whatever was needed - we were made to feel very welcome. We both really enjoyed our stay - a well run. clean welcoming little gust house we will certainly be back again,

Located midway between Shanklin Village and Shanklin Beach, easy walk to both. The decor is quite old fashioned but that is part of its charm. Room was adequate as was the bathroom. The tv provided was quite small, the free internet was sporadic. A typical large English breakfast was available, Mick, the owner was quite concerned when we chose to eat a fairly light breakfast. What we had was excellent. The bus station, from which buses are available to all parts of the island, is within walking distance and the railway station a short taxi ride away. Plenty of places to eat in the village. Mick was most helpful when my wife became sick, organising breakfast for her in bed and providing details regarding doctors. Thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay.

We stayed 4 nights and were 'told off' by the owner for having a shower each morning - apparently our shower leaked into the already overheated dining room. Also, we returned after day trips out to find our room door open and when we complained, the owner did not seem to care we could have had our car keys/sat nav/dvd player etc stolen ...and continued to leave our room open on subsequent days.
The room itself was very dated and there was plenty of dust (not to mention a multitude of cushions), there is not enough parking, but on the plus side there was plenty to eat for breakfast, even if you don't always get what you ask for.

Stayed for two nights recently. Mick made us welcome and he was very pleasant, tea and coffee making facilities were very good. Breakfast was good but the dining room was cluttered,small and very hot, no windows were open. The dining room was also in need of a good clean and re-decorating. Our room was very cluttered with too much furniture, the wardrobe wouldn't open unless we moved a chair. The room was also in need of a good clean, the tv, centre light and wall lights were thick with dust ,not just a couple of days worth, but months worth. The curtains, which were resting on a bed, were heavy material and full of dust and the voille drape over them were full of cobwebs. And cobwebs were hanging from the heavy old fashioned wallpaper. The power shower was very good, but carpets on bathroom and toilet floors are unacceptable. We were both horrified to see the amount of black mould on the ceiling above the shower, an effort had been made to mask the smell of the mould, but in fact had made it worse. The decor throughout the entire hotel is very dated, silk flowers and plastic plants collecting yet more dust confirmed to us we will not be staying here again.

We stayed four nights, two grandparents with our 9yr old granddaughter, found Jan and Mick most welcoming and pleasant. Rooms were clean and well appointed. The breakfasts are superb, plenty of choice and served to order. parking was easy at the hotel and we found it a very friendly atmosphere. Very happy to recommend.
