We stayed in the Alverstone room which was very spacious with a beautiful sea view and large balcony. Perfect for us and our 9 month old baby. A very family friendly room, I only had to move a few items to make it baby safe, the furniture is very sensible. We divided the room up in to a play area with mat and toys, sleeping area and changing area - see photo added.

This room worked well for us as we could sit on the balcony after babies bed time. You are allowed to take drinks up from the bar and the prices are very reasonable. The owners were fantastic and would go out of their way to help with anything - more than happy to let us use the microwave/fridge for steralising and storing bottles.

Great location, right on the beach and there is a clif lift around the corner from the hotel up to Shanklin town (£1.50 return buggies/babies are free). The hotel has its own parking around the back - very useful.

Breakfast was more than adequate, can't go wrong with the option of toast, cereal and any combination of a fry up.

The only thing that could be improved is the bathrooms as ours was looking quite tired and a new ensuite would make the rooms even better.

Overall great accommodation, very welcoming and a perfect location for a hassle free beach holiday. This is a very family orientated place and they have many different sorts of rooms to cater for different size families. We will definitely return, possibly next summer.

Room Tip: I would advise phoning to talk to the owner to discuss your requirements and then he will recommend the best room.

We stayed with my young children for a 3 night break. The rooms were spacious, clean and the sea view and balcony were real highlights. The decor was pretty tired though and the beds were a bit uncomfortable. We were locked out on a couple of occasions which was annoying. Breakfast was a disappointment. No fruit, cooked breakfast was ok but ingredients were low quality. Coffee was instant. Small things but they make a difference. The location was really the best thing about this hotel. Overall I am not sure the hotel offers great value for money and I don't think we will return.

This hotel has a great position on the beach, we had a family suite with a very large balcony and super sea views. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, our suite had 2 rooms, with the children having their own TV in their room. We chose this hotel because we are a family of 5 and it is the only one we found that offers the family suite option, with enough space so that we could relax without having the kids in the same room. Breakfast is plentiful and freshly cooked, and the bar area looks out over the beach so it is nice to sit and watch the world go by. Overall tis is one of the best family hotels we have found, and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful, we will definitely return.

I stayed as a large group. It was comfortable and clean and the rooms were a nice size. Though some rooms are not en-suite. There is one room where there are three cubicles, two showers and one toilet. I found that a little strange. The food is not brilliant but they give you plenty. I found the decor not so good though. In the room there were bunk beds. Overall I would recommend the hotel for big groups but not for families.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we found the hotel to be a perfect choice in every aspect. The owners were so welcoming. When we arrived we were greeted and asked how was our journey etc. We were shown to our room and told if there was anything we needed or wanted to just come and ask. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a family suite with a seaview, this was perfect as we had our own room and our children had the room next to us. We all had our own space and knew the children were safe. Both rooms had tvs so the children were entertained and free wi-fi which was good. The rooms were extremely clean, the food was excellent. Would highly recommend staying here. We will certainly be returning.
