Thank you Jo and Andy for a lovely couple of days, The room was beautiful, clean and very spacious, and the view was breath taking. Jo and Andy couldn't do enough for us lovely couple with lots advice of where to go and where to eat. I liked having tea and coffee making facilities and the jar of sweets, and the towels laid out were luxurious. Thanks again Jo and Andy we will definitely be coming back

We had a wonderful weekend here, Jo and Andy couldn't do enough for us. Spotlessly clean room, spacious and comfy, really lovely breakfast. We couldn't have asked for more. Just hope we get the chance to go back!

Room Tip: Definitely try to get a seaview room.

Very warm welcome from Jo and Andy even though we were much earlier than the 4pm check-in (1.30pm), it was like they knew we were coming and waited for us without really knowing what time we were arriving. Lovely room, so clean, I would have eaten my dinner off of the floor. Great view from the bedroom and the bathroom with a floor to ceiling window and roll top bath, was nice to have a bubble bath and look out at the sea. Andy asked us in the morning what we would like for breakfast, was really good as I wanted poached eggs and my partner wanted a full English, get the feeling if I had requested eggs benedict they would have appeared without any fuss at all. Would definitely recommend it.

Thank you Jo and Andy for a wonderful birthday/anniversary stay. It is obvious you have both worked so hard to make The Shoreside such a warm welcoming home from home. The information you gave us on the island and places to see made our stay more interesting. Would recommend you to anyone and would suggest that the Fine Nammet restaurant is booked well in advance for a truly wonderful fine dining experience. Thanks guys. We will send the recipes as promised x x

We were lucky to be able to return for our 4th stay at the Shoreside this year and as always had a wonderful stay. From the moment you are met on the car park by Andy to the end of your break everything is exactly as you would wish for. Jo and Andy are perfect hosts and do everything they can to make each stay special. The breakfast is delicious and you must try the Isle Of Wight muesli before one of Jo's cooked breakfast and if you have room follow it with a freshly baked Danish pastry. The scrambled eggs are the best my other half has EVER tasted and he's lived a lot of years! Our room was spotless and the comfortable king size bed makes it impossible not to have a great nights sleep especially as you can here the sea lapping on the beach. This is my idea of heaven where I feel that all my troubles disappear. Already booked our next stay, it's impossible not to

Stayed in June 2013, stayed in twin room, absolutely spotless, lovely shower, great view, excellent decor and comfortable beds. Jo and Andy are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble, the breakfasts are great and the warm pastries for breakfast are not to be missed. Hope to stay again next year

Having never been to the Isle of Wight, I wasn't sure where to stay or what to expect. I chose this hotel after looking over several and deciding we wanted to be a bit away from the larger cities. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. We were warmly greeted by Andrew who gave us many suggestions on things to see and do around the island. Every suggestion was spot on and he steered us to some fantastic places and restaurants. The rooms are huge, clean, modern and delightful. The breakfasts, especially the croissants, are wonderful and although we were there in the "off-season", we felt welcomed and cared for. I would highly recommend this inn, although just as a reminder, it is an adults only location. It is located on the southeast side of the island, but the island is so small, you can literally drive from end to end in a very short time.

Room Tip: The channel view from the front is lovely.
