“Enjoyable Holiday”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

We had a really good holiday with National Holidays at the Isle of Wight. We had a lovely room with a sea view. The room had been refurbished and was immaculate. Only complaint was the small shower, nowhere to put toiletries and water came out in a trickle. It was like standing under a dripping tap ! Such a shame as the room was very large and could have accommodated a bigger en-suite easily. Food was very good and our waitress Monika was very efficient and always smiling. Entertainment was OK, but I would have liked a bit more variety. We had the same songs nearly every night. Would certainly come back. to the Shanklin Beach Hotel.The management and staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome

Room Tip: Go for the Sea View rooms & get lulled to sleep by the waves

Just come back from a 5 day holiday here. My wife and I were very impressed. The room was out of ' The Hotel Inspector' . Spotlessly clean; carpet was new , recently decorated too. The towels and bedding were spotless as well. The carpets on stairs and landings looked as if they had been fitted in the last week. The food was nicely cooked, (we even had Pheasant one night) The staff were pleasant and helpful . altogether a very good impression.
The only fault ,to my eyes ,was that the balcony was being re-decked so we couldn't sit out ,but that should be done within the next week . Would definitely go back (if they'll have us)

Room Tip: Try and get a room wiyh a view.

4 night stay at the hotel. The room we had was unpleasant and the bathroom was filthy, No toilet brush available and there was no hot water even thou we reported it several times. The food portions was very small and nothing to look forward to. The receptionist did not have a clue how to direct us to our room as we was told the Manager has decided to change the whole lay out. Staff need to smile more and could be a lot more helpful. The hotel is worse then some of the reviews we read and would never return

I have just spent a 4 nights break at this hotel with" NATIONAL HOLIDAYS" and after reading the reviews before I came I was not looking forward to the visit how ever the room we were given was on the ground floor a decent size clean and newly emulsioned the bathroom was ok but no shower being disabled I could not get into the bath it was roomy though but one fault there was no shelf or anywhere to put your toiletries and the toilet was very hard to flush, the staff were all very polite and helpful , the Enterainment was poor on the 1st night average the second night stayed in room 3rd night the last night was brilliant a trip down memory lane, now on to the food well I thought it was very poor and rationed and its the only hotel (and I have been to many over the years ) where they don't leave a pot of tea and coffee on the table they pure you a cup oy and you have to ask for more they do leave a pot of tea out for breakfast though, would I go back yes to Isle of Wight but No not to this Hotel but as my friend says you get what you pay for, so next time I will pay extra xx

Your comments are of course very welcomed, and we are sorry that the food did not meet your expectations. We are one of the few coach Hotels that still offer table service for dinner and breakfast. It will be on the agenda next year to provide a buffet service as well. Although the food is served in portions any guest that requires a second , third or even fourth helping would never be refused. Thank you for your input and we hope your visit on the Isle of Wight was at least a pleasent memory.

Travelled with Maxfield coaches to this hotel with the over 60s club from Northampton. This was our first coach trip. I had read the reviews and in some cases wished I hadn't. There was no porterage on arrival which would have been helpful especially as finding the rooms was up two steps and down four on occasions. THe meals were excellent, I think they were the best we have ever had. Staff were very helpful as we were not happy on the position of our dining table and it was moved for our next visit. Our room had been redecorated, albeit a coat of emulsion over the wallpaper but it was done tastefully. The ensuite was the only problem as it was tiny and the shower (no bath) was too small for even one person. Evening entertainment was dire. Nevertheless we had a good time and thank you to our coach drivers and the staff who made it so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Sea view is better but it costs more

Your comments were appreciated, thank you. I understand your concern for porterage and its very difficult to arrange summer porterage help on the Isle, myself and my staff are always available to assist those who are unable to carry their own luggage, all they need do is ask or alert us on arrival.
Happy to hear you did enjoy your stay on our lovely Isle and hope to see you again soon.
