We booked very late and were slightly nervous about what we would find.
What we found was a clean, relaxed and very friendly hotel. Decor was dated but everything was in good condition - it's not a flimsy Travelodge or boutique place just a good honest hotel. We had connecting rooms for us & our children, and our dog was made most welcome too! In fact it seemed that about half the residents had dogs.
The rooms were warm (weather was freezing), cosy and comfortable. We used the pool every day which was in excellent condition but cold. There was a sauna and hot tub to warm back up in.
Breakfasts were usual breakfasts and perfectly good, we didn't eat in the evenings so can't comment on the dining (there are some great restaurants in Shanklin).
All in all we were very happy with our stay and will definitely go back.
