“Very comfortable hotel.”
Reviewed 1 September 2009

I booked a night stay at The Chestnuts for my partner's birthday over the May Bank Holiday and was not disappointed with our stay.

We'd had to cancel a previous booking due to a bereavement but Chris and John held our deposit for us and rebooked both the accommodation and the ferry over. During our stay they were very helpful pointing us in the right direction for attractions and were able to recommend places to eat.

We had a room on the ground floor and it had the biggest bed I've ever seen! The room was very clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities, en suite, television, hairdryer etc. The breakfast was good quality, well cooked and plenty of it.

The hotel was in a great situation being within walking distance of the olde worlde high street of Shanklin and the sea front. It was also well situated for getting out and about in the car and it's not far from the Station.

We had a great stay both at the hotel and on the Isle of Wight and I would recommend the hotel to others.

Reviewed 16 December 2008

Finally got to stay at this B&B after having to cancel at the last minute in October. John & Christine are very accommodating hosts who are flexible and genuinely interested in their guests.

Room & en-suite were immaculately clean. Good size shower with plenty of hot water and fluffy towels. Comfortable beds and nice table lamps. There was a problem with the TV when we arrived but it was replaced with another straight away and even tuned in to my son's favourite channel!!! Good hospitality tray with biscuits.

Nice breakfasts including cereal and yoghurts (help yourself) along with a full English cooked to order.

All in all a good establishment with excellent facilities and nice owners. Would recommend to others.

  • Liked — Clean and comfortable.
  • Disliked — Nothing.
