“An Excellent Hotel On The Isle of Wight”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

If you want an excellent place to stay for your Isle of Wight holiday then I strongly recommend the Harrow Lodge Hotel in Shanklin. My mate and I were made very welcome from the minute we got out of our taxi. Nothing was too much trouble for Alan, his wife, his family and his staff. Our rooms were excellent in every way and the food was FIRST CLASS. Shanklin Old Village, the Bus Station and Railway Station are all within walking distance from the Hotel. Its location is overlooking the seafront and beach and on a clear day the views are stupendous. The bar even has Real Ale..
We will DEFINITELY return there next year!

Great surprise and ideal location away from the hustle and bustle. With great views looking out to sea and the beach a stones throw away, literally! The Hotel was very clean, tidy and comfortable. The owners and staff extremely friendly and helpful. Within 5 minutes walk to Old Shanklin Village which is very picturesque, with tourist shops and the Village Inn is well worth a visit too.

Overall the Harrow Lodge Hotel is an ideal place to stay with convenient access to both north and south of the island, with parking too!

Room Tip: Room's are spacious with en-suite bathroom (Shower in our case). Cleaned and made everyday. Ver...

Very clean Hotel, Friendly staff, Excellent breakfasts. Close to the beach to. Will definitely stay there again. The cleaning staff were great, and each evening after a day out, we would be welcomed back to the room with a animal of some description made out of towel, brilliant stuff. At breakfast, the staff made every effort to accommodate our dietary needs.

Room Tip: i guess rooms on the west side are quieter? Our room was next to road, so had traffic noise, but we...

We have just returned from our four night break from the Harrow Lodge Hotel and I cannot rate how highly we thought of the whole holiday experience. The hotel was in a perfect location overlooking the beach, the staff were friendly, helpful & tentative, the family room was large, clean & quiet, the food was plentiful and good value for money. Its in a perfect place to explore the whole island. We will definitely be returning, thank you very much!

We stayed in a family room, whilst my husbands parents had a double room. Great location , the inlaws couldn't walk very far and we were next to cliff lift which whisked them down to the seafront where all the restaurants were . The cooked breakfast were great and the staff were lovely if a little inefficient but it was very busy so you can forgive them for that. Rooms exceptionally clean. Only downfall was trying to get the shower temperature to a good heat, it was either freezing or boiling!. As it was a very hot weekend I chose freezing.

Room Tip: Room 21 is downstairs with a walk in shower, good for our elderly parents. Next door 22 is a family...

We had to 'downgrade' to this 2* from the 4* we had planned, because circumstances changed and we had to bring our dog.

We arrived not expecting too much, and pleasantly surprised by our good sized room (No. 1). Lovely carpet, pine furniture, small but immaculate bathroom with shower, and patio doors on to a balcony with artificial grass and a table/chairs. And nothing in front of us but the sea. It's not on the front, but is high on a hill. We can still see the sea when lying in bed.

Cream teas - two scones with cream & jam/pot of tea - are £3. Superb value. OH's lager shandy, £2.80. This is definitely not a hotel out to make money by extortion!

Staff very friendly, and food good.

Lady who cleaned the room today so helpful - went and got us an umbrella for the patio table, and also - unasked - said she'd get us a fan too.

Cue terrible pun...this hotel now has two more fans. Deserves an extra star.

Room Tip: Room 1 is lovely.
