The Harrow Lodge Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Me & a friend fancied a long weekend at the IOW. We decided to book into harrow lodge! Fantastic location and close to amazing views & tourist attractions!

We cannot believe its only 2 star! Please don't be put off .. as because it definitely doesnt seem like that! The food heigene is 5 star! The breakfast is lovely! The staff are very friendly and the hotel is very homely!

The only let down was the bar in the evening, I think maybe music or a band would benefit the atmosphere more.

very happy here! Would stay again!.

I spent 3 nights here for a short break and wish it had been a long break instead! A really great place with very friendly and helpful staff. The room was very comfortable and clean; the breakfast was hot, fresh and filling; the evening specials menu, whilst not extensive, was very tasty, home cooked fare. The lasagne is to be recommended! The hotel is in a great place with terrific views over Shanklin beach and a short walk away from the Old Village and the town. Lovely walks are all on the doorstep in all directions and a short walk away is the train to Ryde - an experience as it is a former London underground train! Can't wait to return next year!

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...
