“Had a fantastic time, food delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

Went with National for 8 days begining of August, room quite dark, but spotlessly clean. The food very good, full english breakfast every day, evening meal sometimes 4 courses,being a keen cook myself I realy enjoyed the variety of dishes, we had chicken, roast beef, lamb,pork, ect, 4 choices for dessert. Our waitress Monica worked extremely hard and everyone loved her. We were fortunate to have sunshine every day and enjoyed touring the beautiful island. We"ll definately be back.

Room Tip: If your not happy with your room, dont be frightened to see the manager.

after 9hours of travelling to shankln beach hotel with national holidays dreading how awfull it may be well be from reading the reviews, i was really suprised and relieved at how excellent the service was and how clean the hotel was. our room was just fantastic with balcony overlooking the beach with clean comfortable bed. The waited table service and food was the best, with different meat and 2veg everynight. My wife has very high standards of hotels and even she was impressed. Totally perfect relaxing hotel with nothing wrong with it. Ignore the bad reviews and photos they mean nothing. Go and go again we will be. thanks shanklin for a magical break.

Room Tip: ask for sea view with balcony.

I booked this holiday with National coaches and then read the reviews page, I have to say some of the reviews left me wondering if I had done the right thing, but I went anyway and I found that what I had read was a load of twaddle!! The hotel was clean, our room was clean and had recently been refurbished, it was at the back of the hotel and was peaceful and quiet even though the kitchens were below and to the side of us. The food was good honest home cooking and there was always a choice of a salad if you didn't want the cooked dinner. My husband doesn't eat pork as it upsets his stomach, and the waiter was more than willing to find him an alternative when we asked. The staff where very plesant and helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them, If you ASK they are quite happy to solve any problems that might arise. When we arrived we were put into a room with a bath, which both my husband and myself find difficult to get in and out of, the manager immidiately found us an alternative room with a shower.
I think the problem with most of the people that have writen the previous reports, is that instead of flagging up the problems whilst they were at the hotel, they have just gone home and complained afterwards. The very nice lady on the reception desk said to us if people don't tell them when things are wrong, they cannot do anything to put them right!
We had a brilliant holiday even though it rained for 3 days, but we can hardly blame the hotel for that!. We would go again.

Room Tip: Ask in detail for what you require ie, bat or shower, prefered view, near lift etc.

Hotel is across the road to the beach and there is a fabulous view from the lounge. Found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. National Holidays had 3 coach loads of people staying at the beginning of July. They had 3 days of trips in the price and we could also pay for extra days if required.Food in the hotel was excellent. We had beef, lamb, chicken turkey, steak etc each night and there was always a salad as an alternative. You usually got 4 courses on a night, and breakfast was fine also. You must ignore the old fashioned decor but otherwise had good holiday.

We all had a fantastic time there,The rooms were spotless,lovely crisp white bedding,mattress and mattress cover was lovely and clean,bathroom was immaculate,I very fussy and I really could not fault the place.
The staff were all very helpful and polite and couldn't do enough for you,the were supreme.
The food was out of this world,What a menu,loads to chose from and all so very tasty.Our plates were always polished off,everything was to good to waste,so much for wanting to lose weight.
Highly recommended..We really will be back,so please,please dont change a thing about the place,Its fab.What value for money,how can they do all that for the money we paid.
Your faithfully,
Verina John
