Foxhills of Shanklin
Ranked #4 of 51 Shanklin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This is the fifth year running we have stayed at Foxhills and as always the experience was amazing. James and Paula are the most welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. The room was large, very clean, a perfect crash pad after a day exploring the island. Breakfast is to die for, a wide selection of cold and hot food. Cooked breakfast is just delicious. I cant put into words how special Foxhills is. We'll be back next year.

We stayed 3 nights with my mother the owner James couldn't do enough for you.
From the minute we booked the personal touch was evident from room request to ferry booking.
The rooms are large very clean with everything you need for a breakaway from home.
Wonderful breakfast with a varied choice from cereals, fruit to one of the best English breakfast I've had in years barring my wife's
If your looking for a quality relaxing break in the IOW this should be your first place to try.
Wonderful break thank you James & Paula

Before we had chance to get out of the car, James offered to help with our bags! We then had a nice tour round, were given a choice of rooms - they are all lovely :) We then had chance to unwind in the garden with a drink - much needed after our trip in the heat. Our room was tastefully furnished with a lovely big bathroom. We had a fan in the room which helped with the heat during our stay, but could sleep with the window open as there is virtually no noise. Breakfasts are exceptional - everything from cereal, to home made jam and marmalade. If you want filling up for the day, the full english comes highly recommended with the bacon and sausages coming from local producers. In the Old Village in Shanklin there are are a number of nice restaurants - great idea that Foxhills has folders for you to look through of comments from previous guests - makes the chance of having a bad experience minimal. Our favourite was Vernons. Food is also available during the day at Foxhills but after eating one of their breakfasts, we found we didnt need another meal until the evening. Overall we had a fabulous stay in a lovely property with no complaints - not many places you can say that about!

Just back from 4 nights at Foxhills where James made us very welcome from the start. We had lovely room and even provided us with a fan which was well needed and well used. Breakfast was fantastic with great choice and plenty of it. Only bad comment would be the shower to our room could have done with alot more power. On the whole a lovely clean and well kept establishment and I would highly recommend it. Would have been nice to have met Paula, the lady of the house if only to thank her for her excellent cooking.

From the moment we arrived and James greeted us, our stay was a complete pleasure. We were given a tour of the facilities to begin and the idea of the local restaurants being rated by previous guests is great. The room was beautiful and the attention to detail from the time I booked was brilliant. My wife would recommend the beauty therapy. She had a full body massage and truly loved it. This was arranged for me by James & Paula, keeping it discreet as it was to be a surprise for my wife. The breakfast was second to none, the full english is the business. I certainly look forward to going back to Foxhills and will be recommending it to friends and family. To James & Paula thank you for making our weekend break such a memorable one.

Right from the very beginning James made us feel very welcome. He greeted us outside before we even managed to get out of our car! We were treated like guests of honour and given a tour of the place before we settled in. The foxhills is such a beautiful and well kept place, nothing to flaw. Food was available on request and was very delicious, even the morning breakfast was 10/10! Great location from the beach and from the local hi street. plenty to do and see around the area. The stay made our trip!

James greeted personally us and immediately made us feel welcome showing us around the lovely hotel followed by a welcome pot of tea in the garden. We were spoilt with lovely weather, and Shanklin is a good base location in easy walking distance of the shops, restaurants and sea front. James encourages guests to "rate" and comment on the local restaurants of which there are many and these are filed for guests to refer to if they want.

We used the spa a couple of times which makes for a very relaxing end to the day before setting out for an evening meal. Our room had a very large bed and was a big room with en-suite shower/wc area at one end. The only minor comment we would make is that the shower could do with a bit more power.

As others have said, and the various awards reflect, the Foxhills breakfast is exceptional with a large selection of hot and cold food and the full English is lovely!

Thank you James, Paula & staff

Room Tip: St Catherines room was nice
