“Not stopping only drinking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

An excellent venue for real ale drinkers, some 5 - 7 beers on mostly from island breweries with some guests from the mainland. Same gripe as before the staff not really aware of the beer they are selling but did do it politely, after explaining the difference between "hoppy" or "malty" I proceeded to have a couple of tasters and settled on the hoppiest one which I prefer. Really good atmosphere a singer was performing when I was there very pleasant.

I stayed for two nights in May in a room with a balcony overlooking the beach. the rooms appear to have recently been repainted and the bathrooms look new.

I ate in the restaurant on both nights and the food and service on both occasions was excellent. I will definitely be staying here again on future visits.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We booked a table of twelve and then decided we wanted to eat outside as weather was no nice. We were moved with no fuss at all. Service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious and plentiful. Priced reasonably as well. The only reason they didn't get five stars is the drinks were a little pricey which unfortunately seems to be a theme among tourist spots!

To read the other reviews on this page you would think that the only thing The Steamer Hotel has going for it is that the food portions are huge and that they give your dog a Bonio. Unfair - you're welcome there whether or not you and Rover like big piles of chips - it's awesome- spacious and spotless, superpower showers , sensational Full English and excellent family service.
Shanklin beats overpriced Seaview and tired old Sandown. The Steamer ranks 23rd hotel in the resort according to this guide, it should be up in the top five at least. Woof.

On a long weekend in shanklin we went to The Steamer Inn twice. The first time as we needed a dog friendly restaurant. We went back a second time as the prices were reasonable, food good and portions huge. The dog was particularly pleased on the second visit as they provided a bowl of water and gave him a Bonio! Would definitley recommend and go there again if in the area.

We had a midweek break in Shanklin, had been tjo the Steamer Inn a few years ago and decided to try it again, we were not disappointed , great food, fish and chips huge, lovely staff and a good atmosphere , to cold to sit outside, but must be lovely on a warm evening. The best place to eat in Shanklin
