“Home From Home - First Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

Very friendly hosts. All food served to a high standard (and lots of it!). The guest house was very clean and tidy and the room very comfortable with a good sized en-suite. Located within easy walking distance of the town, public transport (2 mins) and the beach (10 mins). Off street parking for 4 vehicles with nearby on street parking available. Well placed for visiting all the Island attractions.

Brooke House was as previously described very clean and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms were well equipped, tasteful, clean, with good en suite. . The food was excellent and well presented and hot. Hana and Steve are excellent "hosts". Steve took our cases upstairs when we arrived. Hana was always very friendly. They really look after all their guests needs with a smile on their faces. Parking in the street by Brooke House was relatively easy on all 3 nights.

Brooke House was very clean and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms were well equiped, tasteful, clean, with good en suite. The hospitally tray was very welcome. The food was excellent and well presented. Hana and Steve were excellent "hosts". They really looked after all our needs with a smile on their faces. The hotel is in a good situation for train and buses. On our stay we enjoyed the whole Island but particularly we enojoyed Osbourne House, Calbourne Watermill, the walks over the Downs, St Catherine's lighthouse, Puckpool Park with grazy golf. We went to two shows at Shanklin Theatre which were very very good. We would certainly stay there again.

We returned to Brooke House this summer for our fourth stay. Our first visit was only for a few nights but we knew we wanted to come back to this wonderful guest house for a longer stay.
Hana and Steve are very welcoming and make you feel at home straight away. The rooms are spacious and always kept clean. We had a very comfortable bed and a lovely en suite shower room.
The Brooke House breakfast is great - really sets you up for the day. We always have the full English but there's plenty of choice and Steve cooks it all perfectly.
We have recommended Brooke House to family and friends as excellent value. The service is genuinely friendly and we always have a relaxing stay. We leave feeling refreshed and looking forward to our next visit. It's a four star guest house which is run by two more stars!

Room Tip: Book early! It's recommended if you want your favourite room

I have recently had a 5 night stay and can say this is one of the nicest B & B’S I have stayed it. You are made to feel very welcome and the property is exceptionally clean.
All amenities are very close and would recommended this to anyone who needs a quite / relaxing break

We had a lovely stay at Brooke House, Hannah and Steve were very accommodating and the room was lovely and clean; actually the whole house was spotless. We had a nicely cooked English breakfast which kept us going for the day. Brooke house is situated in a good location in Shanklin, the beach and the old village are within easy walking distance.

We had a great time on the Isle of Wight and will definitely return to Brooke House when we visit again!
