I don't want much from a hotel: I like to be greeted as if they are pleased to see me; I like a room that is quiet and clean, a parking area that is off the street and some garden space to stretch the legs without encroaching upon another but most of all I like the reception. For my wife and I this is exactly what we got.
We don't like anti-septic hotels where you are a face and passed on, we also like peace and quiet, privacy too. The staff are all great and we never felt like we were a chore. We like a choice of breakfasts and these were available in trumps, wonderfully presented, staff who were always present but never intrusive and lots of everything.
Location-wise it was a good choice. The little down centre has it all, an array of good shops, banks, food and gift stores, and churches is barely ten minutes walk away. A five minute walk in the opposite direction take you too the cliff lift that puts you right on the promenade - it would take you a 10 minute drive to arrive at the same location.
Many thanks to the staff at the Marlborough Hotel at Shanklin, we only came for one night but we are already making plans to return.
