After reading the reviews on tripadvisor we opted for the Clifton for a 1 night break to have a day in Shanklin and enjoy the beach.
The hotel is positioned beautifully on a hilltop overlooking the sea, the room was very clean and had everything you need (including a hairdryer which I always forget!) It is the perfect place for a wander down into Shanklin and a stones through away from a beautiful beach.
The breakfast was superb with a choice of ceareals/toast/tea/coffee/juice and a wonderful full English. I look forward to visiting again!

Local is Best……with prime farming land all around us and a host of specialist growers and producers making the most of it, we usually have access to plenty of fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables, as well as quality fish and meat. The garden opens out to Keats Green and the lovely walk between Shanklin and Sandown (part of the Isle of Wight Coastal Path) with fantastic views across Sandown Bay. This also leads to the famous Shanklin Chine with a pathway down to the sandy beaches.
