Ticked all the correct boxes. Was met & greeted by the owner, who carried our bags to the rooms. Guided tour of the facility's including Jacuzzi & spa, which I'd forgotten about. Rooms were tastefully decorated & clean, bathrooms adequate & beds lovely & comfy.
Breakfast had enormous selection of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts & also a large menu of cooked items.
After a day of driving around the island I had the pleasure of the Jacuzzi all to my self for about an hour, total heaven.
The owners were fantastic, attention to detail making this hotel stand out above the rest. A very pleasurable stay & will come back again if we need to visit the island again
Restaurants we tried were
Fine Nammet 33 to 35 High Street Shanklin, Shanklin PO37 6JJ,
01983 300 335. Excellent food, ambience & attention to detail were superb. The lady who owns this establishment also does the waiting of tables, it was a joy to watch her go from table to table, she obviously loves her work very much.
The Hambrough – PO38 1 SQ
01983856333. If you want to impress the lady in your life or for that very special occasion then this is the place to go. We had the taster menu, absolutely fantastic, every course gave the mouth a new journey of interest & wonderment. The staff were friendly & had a good rapour with the clientele, well informed, professional but not stuffy.
