There was a friendly welcome and the proprieter helped us with our luggage then a quick tour of hotels facilities which was good and i've not had this before, every other place i've been lets you find your own way around. We had a choice of rooms offered to us, both were very nice, with a clean en-suite, TV and tea making facilities. The bed was comfortable and there was no noise from outside. Our room may have been unusual in having the sink in the bedroom and not in the en-suite but i chose it for the king-size bed and soon got used to it. There was ample off road parking. The stay included a free facial for my wife, which she enjoyed very much and the private use of a jacuzzi with robes provided. There's a great choice of restaurants within 10 minutes walk (if that) in Shanklin Old Village, Thai (Siam Pearl), Indian, Italian (Mamma Mias), English (The Crab), we tried a different one each night and weren't disappointed with any. Shanklin Chine was a nice walk in the evening with the different coloured lights, illuminating the waterfalls. We found it a good base for Sandown, Ventnor and Newport (Carisbrooke Castle nearby) with trips further affield to Yarmouth (very nice cream tea at the Jireh House) the Needles and Osborne House. If you like Roman stuff visit Brading Roman Villa to see the mosaics it was very well displayed and explained with the audio guides. The breakfasts were excellent/delicious we filled up on the full Engish breakfast/toast/cereals and we didn't need a proper lunch out anywhere. Thanks to James and Paula for a very pleasant stay, we would definitely visit again .
