Reviewed 5 April 2013

Our first time at the Hambledon and we were pleased to find that it definitely lived up to Its excellent reputation. Very clean, a warm welcome, lovely food and excellent value for money. Plenty of choice on the breakfast/ dinner menu and an excellent pre ordering meal system which works really well. Many thanks to Bill and Jackie who were excellent hosts.

A lovely hotel in a great location in Shanklin. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean, well appointed and modern. The food is home cooked, delicious and plentiful, and served with a smile. We were made very welcome and enjoyed our stay immensely, there is no reason why we would not return to this hotel.

Once again our walking group, U3A Dunstable Branch, stayed at Bill & Jackie's lovely Hotel in Shanklin.
The food as before was excellent, good beer & lager, the rooms are really clean & fresh, the staff very helpful.
Bill sorted out a couple of walks for us to do - I think he was trying to get rid of us on one of them !!.
Would I stay there again, most definitely.

Thanks B & J & Staff for helping to make our week.

Room Tip: If you are a walker or not, you will be looked after very well.

Just returned from a short break on the Island, staying at the Hambledon. We can only agree with all the previous correspondents and say that this is an excellent hotel. It is clean and comfortable with very good food. Bill and Jackie are hosts "par excellence". We enjoyed our stay and would certainly book again if we visit the Island.

This was my third stay with Bill and JACKIE at their lovely hotel. They specialise in walking parties and organise everything for us from arranging walks and leaders to ordering our lunches at the pub midday . I,m sure their attention to detail would be just as good for individual people. The rooms are comfortable , the food is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: I didn't mean to give a terrible rating for pool and fitness centre as their are none here but t...

This hotel is the best kept secret on the Isle of White. Nothing we can say more than it was exceptional to find such an excellent hotel in every way. From the moment of booking to our leaving was one exceptional experience. Everything from the hotel booking the car ferry for us. Initial welcome from Mr &Mrs Grindley (Bill & Jackie) Room, meals, bar all excellent, Bill very helpful with advice on the Island etc. The only problem is that they get so much repeat business they are nearly booked fully for most of 2013. However I am sure a telephone call to them would suffice to advise if they have any vacancies. We do not usually give such praise but the Hambledon really does deserve this accolade
This visit was part of our Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations and was well worth the visit.
Location of the Hambledon is perfect for the Town, Old Shanklin Village and Shanklin Chine and Chine lift. It is on a near level site this should be ok for residents with mobility issues .
