“First Class Guest House”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Exceptionally clean and well maintained B&B. The owners are a credit to the industry. Great position close to the rail and bus services and a short walk to the beach and shops, whichever you should choose. There is no risk of starving as the food is second to none, very well prepared (and hot). All in all an excellent visit, I will be back.

Very clean, stylish Victorian house. Owners were very nice and we were made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was good with a choice of what you wanted, nothing appeared to be too much trouble. We did not feel the location was a problem and enjoyed the walk into the town and to the beach only 5 minutes away.

We would recommend this Bed and Breakfast

Stayed here for a week, I wish I had stayed for 2, it's a credit to the owners, the breakfast was excellent, great location, 2 mins from railway station, 5 mins from the beach, the room was spotless and located very central to all amenities, I will be back next year, well done.

I decided to book this B&B after reading all the positive 5star reviews, I was however a little disappointed when we arrived at the B&B. Its on a junction of a road and not really in the nicest of locations. Its handy for guests that don't drive as located 5 minutes from a station and numerous bus routes to get you around the Island. The Brooke House is extremely clean and tidy and very well presented and Hannah (the host) could not do enough for her guests her hosting skills are second to none. The breakfast is very nice with ample tea and toast, just what you need to start the day. The only other negative that I can find regarding this B&B, is the time slot that they give guests for breakfasts. The breakfast is served between 8.15-8.45 I feel you should at least have a minimum of an hour slot for breakfast, you are however on holiday and part of that is to have a little lie in, so its not great to feel rushed first thing in the morning. All in all a great little clean affordable B&B, apart from the immediate location and the breakfast time slot I would have given it a 5.

Our second stay at Brooke House was as good as we remembered the breakfast is realy good
and will keep you going till the evening. We had the ground floor room and it was clean bright plus a fridge and sofa.The bus garage is just a minute away as is Shanklin station. The old town and beach are about a 10 minute walk away, we get a 7 day bus pass from the driver £24 each that takes us all over the island. If you want a clean bright b&b that really take care of all your needs then you will not beat Brooke House.

I've just returned from another week at Brooke House, my third visit in as many years, and it was excellent as usual. The single room I stayed in is small but very cosy, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The location is perfect for anyone like me who enjoys a good walk with a number of excellent paths nearby, including the Sunshine Trail, Worsley Trail, Nunwell Trail and the Coastal Path.
