“An amazing and friendly hotel”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

I stayed at the Hazelwood hotel with my partner for 3 days in July and it was one of the best hotels i've stayed in! The owners were friendly, happy and keep the place up to a very high standard. Our room was quite big with a very nice small bathroom. The beds were exceedingly comfortable and when we got there, there was a small teddy bear on it to welcome us and we could purchase him when we left which was a lovely jesture. The food was very appetising and again its the small touches that make it even better, with fresh made muffins for breakfast - if I could have smuggled more out I would have, they were amazing! Overall our stay was very pleasant, specially being only a little walk from a nice sandy beach. We will definately being going back to this hotel if we can!

Recently stayed for three nights at this Victorian villa which is filled with art that has been created (and indeed collected) by one of the owners. We booked a double room and were given a triple which meant that we had a small suite of rooms, one of which we used as a day room! Comfortable surroundings and friendly owners who were attentive and obliging. This place is less than five minutes from the costal path and about the same in to the main town.

The "Hazelwood" is a very neat double fronted house in Shanklin, It is spotlessly clean........and I mean spotless. The full English breakfast is everything you would expect......perfect. The two lads who run it are Phil and Carl and are very helpfull and polite. You will need a good hanbrake if you park on their driveway ! We would not think of going elsewhere when we visit the island.

I'm writing this review months after my original stay because I was thinking of booking again and I noticed that it now has a tripadvisor listing.

The Hazelwood is a short walk from Shanklin station, and also convenient for the lovely sandy beach and cliff-top path. It's a bit further to the main shopping / pubs / restaurants in Shanklin, but still only about 10 minutes walk (and Saffron's is a friendly restaurant that's even nearer).

The building is a detached, double-fronted villa in a pleasant street of similar properties. There's a real feel of space and our room had a big bay window with views over the sea and inland to Ventnor Down.

This place is the most incredible value - £50 a night for a comfy, well-furnished en-suite double room. The Isle of Wight has a lot of cheap B&Bs and hotels, but the Hazelwood offers a bit more style than you might expect in this price range.

Phil and Karl are lovely and friendly - and can give good advice on things to see on the island - but not at all pushy or intrusive.

  • Liked — Sea views and sense of space. And the price!
  • Disliked — Very little
