Our second visit to the hotel. Excellent room, food and hosts. Cannot fault it in any way.Bill and Jackie are the perfect hosts. Don't want to make it sound too good or it may be full the next time we want a room! Peter & Rita

Very nice hotel situated within walking distance of town centre and Shanklin old village, and very near cliff lift down to sea front. Hotel is run by very friendly staff, food was excellent. Room was very clean and tidy, bed was comfortable. Overall a very pleasant stay , and the weather was excellent too.

we have spent many years coming to the island and what makes this the best holiday we have had is the time spent with bill and jackie and thier family at the hotel, we arrived as strangers and were made to feel so welcome we booked for next year, the staff at the hotel are so friendly and helpfull. the hotel is always clean and fresh and the breakfast is superb, we only booked B&B this time but will book half board next year, anyone thinking of staying with bill and jackie will not be dissapointed and this hotel is just minutes from the beach.

Third year in a row at this gem of an hotel, already booked for next year. Great atmosphere, very friendly fellow guests and Bill and Jackie and their staff making for a superb stay. Location spot on for town, beach, evening strolls. Food very good and varied with plenty of choice. Hotel suitable for couples, families and single travellers, we have met all and enjoyed their company. The meeting up with many familiar faces each year shows how much this hotel is valued by those who stay there.

Once again we have had another superb holiday and alot of credit goes to Bill, Jackie and their staff. This hotel is a great family run hotel that more than welcomes its guests. It is like home from home. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. Our rooms are always immaculate and Jackies meals are fantastic! (Highly recommend). Always nice to have a drink and chat with Bill in the Bar. If you have a family and want a good holiday this is the hotel for you!

Location is great nice and central to the seafront and the town centre.

We have met some fantastic friends through visiting this hotel, all rebooked for next year and can't wait for it to come around. Great holiday 2012 looking forward to 2013 already!

You will not be disappointed in staying at this hotel. Top marks! Thankyou Bill & Jackie
