“Harley Weekender”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

A must if on the IOW
Top breakfast, very clean well designed rooms, & the most welcoming hosts you can ask for.
We have rebooked for next year & might even squeeze in a visit later this year.
It really is that good

Room Tip: The one with the bath, sea veiw included

Having visited the Island on ten previous occasions , staying at Hotels all over from Warners at Bembridge to The Albion at Freshwater ,we have now found one which surpasses them all .The whole experience was a joy from the moment we arrived . The room was immaculate and comfortable , the food excellent , and our hosts Andy and Jo could not have been more helpful and friendly . We will certainly be returning to this fabulous Hotel on our next visit .

What can I say which adds to other positive reviews. Andy and Jo go the extra mile to ensure the comfort of their guests. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfasts are superb. I would recommend the Shore side Inn to anyone planning a holiday on the Isle of Wight.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool or fitness centre but, tripadvisor wouldn't let me alter an accidental...

Magnificent views, fantastic attention to detail, huge rooms and wonderful food.
Owners, Jo and Andy are without a doubt excellent hosts, entertaining, friendly and extremely helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Shoreside Inn and will hopefully be back for a return visit before too long.

My wife and I stayed at the Shoreside in late May 2014, after having dropped in for a chat purely on a hunch the month before. Right from the start of the show, Andy and Jo were courteous, helpful and friendly. We really can't over recommend a stay here...except for the fact that now we don't really want everyone else to know about it!

The company, food, service and rooms are all absolutely excellent, and to top it all we have come away knowing a few new magic tricks too!

Thank you very much to our new friends Andy and Jo for making our stay one to cherish and remember forever.

If what you want from a hotel is an immaculate, well designed, homely room with friendly and accommodating hosts in an exceptional location then you must stay at the Shoreside Inn.

We were greeted in the car park as we arrived, by Andy, who immediately made us feel extremely welcome. Having shown us to our room Andy took the time to recommend some local restaurants and some places to visit.

The hotel boasts a seafront position which means that not only was the view beautiful from the bay window but the sound of the sea was included free. The room was spotless and my wife particularly loved the free standing bath where she could wallow whilst watching and listen to the sea.

The whole hotel is tastefully decorated including the bar and food area and like the room everywhere was immaculate.

Breakfast was top notch and the choice should cater for everyone. The service was spot on. Andy would have a chat before your food arrived but then leave you in peace to eat your breakfast. Jo meanwhile was in the kitchen producing the delicious feast.

We also made a point of having a sandwich in the bar at lunchtime and got the opportunity of chatting more to Jo which was nice. A really friendly and genuine couple.

My biggest compliment to Jo and Andy would be that when we left we felt we were leaving friends. We hadn’t made it to the bottom of the road before we were trying to work out when we could make another visit.

Thank you Jo and Andy for a great stay.

We have just returned from our second visit to Shoreside Inn with a group of friends and have already booked for next year. Our suite had a large balcony with uninterrupted sea views and there was an excellent selection of teas/ coffees and even a jar of jelly beans.
Jo and Andy couldn't do enough to help and made sure that our stay was relaxing and trouble free. Apart from the excellent breakfast you must try the home made pastries which are delicious.
