Spent 4 nights with Bob and Anne (excellent and helpful hosts) at the Carlton in Shanklin. Well situated with great sea views and 5 mins from the main high street, this a a spotlessly clean hotel with very tidy and functional rooms. We stayed in an ensuite with sea views (supplement) and verandah which gave us some spectacular views over Sandown Bay. Other than breakfast which was good, we spent very little time in the hotel but I think the decor is looking a little tired in the main areas. Breakfast was hearty and we were well served by Maz - who is a treasure - nothing is too much and the menu appears to be very flexible - one small change would really make a difference and that is to provide quality sausages - that said the rest was first class. We enjoyed our stay and will seriously consider visiting again should we return to the IOW in the near term - thank you Bob and Anne
