We visited Shanklin for a Birthday Break and stayed at the Foxhills, in a room with a four-poster bed.
We were very impressed by the greeting from James, the proprietor, who showed us around and insisted on helping us with our luggage. This high level of service set the tone for a really enjoyable stay. The room and bathroom were spotless and well maintained. Breakfast was very good .
There are a lot of nice touches such as a mini-trpadvisor type review system of local eateries by previous guests, all indexed and ranked. Sadly, at the time of our visit, the top two restaurants appeared to have gone out of business but we still enjoyed eating out. It does show that providing good food and service does not in itself guarantee success! Nevertheless, if anyone deserves to be successful, James does and we would thoroughly recommend this establishment.
If I did want to nit-pick, I should say that getting the shower to stay at a uniform temperature was beyond my ability and that the rooms on the front of the hotel overlook a main road which does mean there will be the occasional car passing although we did manage to sleep well enough.
