“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

This hotel exceeded all our expectations on all levels. Hannah was such a lovley host (we never got to met Steve), nothing was too much trouble and there was a real personal touch to how she dealt with the guests. The house is kept spotlessly clean and is tastefully decorated in keeping with the style of the house. The breakfast had a good choice both hot and cold. We really cant recommend this place anough.

We had a lovely time here. Right from the beginning there was a really personal touch and the little things we really taken care of. The whole building was spotless and was cleaned every day. The breakfast was superb. The rooms were spacious and very well utilised. We could not speak highly enough of the owners and the way in which their business was conducted. No more than a minutes walk from the shopping areas in Shanklin and easily walkable distances to the beach and old village.

This lovely B & B is just fabulous, the owners Hanna and Steve are fantastic hosts and it is just like home from home, the bedrooms are fantastically decorated as is the dining room and the hotel lounge. The rooms are serviced everyday, when you return from a day out its like walking back into your room on your first day, all neat, tidy and perfect. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the breakfasts are home cooked and to order. There is great folder in the rooms giving lots of local information, i.e. where to eat, attractions, maps etc. It is in a great situation for exploring and is only a 10 minute walk from Shanklin Beach, also, you can get on the train and travel to Ryde with many places to stop off on the way. I have been using this B & B now for 4 years and will be visiting again next year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect.

We have just stayed for two nights here and it could not have been nicer. The hosts are so welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. Our room was really well decoratred and an excellent size. We'd paid for a room with a fridge and this proved very useful. The breakfast was lovely, not too greesy and just what you want on a break away. The location is perfect for going into Shanklin. I'd highly recommend this BnB at such a good price even in peek season!

Room Tip: Value for money and big rooms

We've just spent a very comfortable and well-breakfasted three nights a family room at Brooke House, which is ideally situated (2 minutes to trains and buses, 3 minutes to shops) and very well kept. Breakfast is generous and Hana and Steve are most welcoming and helpful. En-suite shower
works very well; plenty of drawers and wardrobe space for your stuff; television easy to use---which isn't the case everywhere! Tea, coffee and milk in room topped up daily.
Highly recommended.

Very clean and neatly arranged B&B. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. The B&B is conveniently located very close to the beach (not more than 5 mins walk), the old village (with beautiful thatched old style tea rooms and traditional pubs and restaurants), the high street, bus stop and train station.
We decided to leave our car and explored the island on buses and trains this time.. Brooke house was the perfect location to stay.

Great breakfast and friendly host.. will definitely go back to brooke house everytime we visit Shanklin.
