“A lovely flat in a superb location, would definitely return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My partner and I stayed at the Beatrice apartment for 3 nights. We were visiting Shanklin for a friend's wedding and did not know much about the place, but we fell in love with it! The apartment was extremely clean and decorated beautifully. You could see the sea from the window and we could walk to the esplanade in less than five minutes. We had events going on in the Old Village and new town, and the Beatrice was perfectly situated for both. Neither of us drive and this was no hardship as our apartment was so close to the town. Also, we had use of a hot tub, which was a pleasant surprise. We went out in the evenings but breakfast was when the cooking facilities came in handy, looking out to sea from the little table and chairs next to the window, it felt a home from home, The owner said it was fine to leave our bags there for the Monday as no-one else was due to arrive, so we got to check out a bit later and have a last trip to the beach. A fab holiday!

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2013 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed in this apartment in February 2012. We knew the building as it used to be the Burlington Hotel which we stayed in once many years ago, never to return until now.
The Beatrice is just as it appears in the photos on the website, everything new and to a high standard. Everything you may need is supplied- towels, dishwasher tabs, shampoo etc, even a litre of milk in the fridge. Once you are unpacked you are in a home from home -but with a lovely sea view which gave us some beautiful sunrises over the sea during the week we were there. We were a bit worried about the kitchen area being to one side of the room you live and sleep in, but no problems on that score , and a good extractor fan is provided. Mary gave us a tour of the building and showed us some of the other available apartments, and she became our friend .
This is just like staying in an upmarket hotel, but you make your own breakfast. My wife cooked an evening meal on a few evenings, the rest of the time we dined out as there are lots of good restaurants within a short stroll- recommend Mamma Mia , and the Crab Inn .
Overall we had a lovely peaceful weeks holiday, and were already planning to return !
Those of of you who read my reviews will see we did return a year later.
