Shanklin Hotel

Reviewed 3 June 2012

The Shanklin Hotel offers a good friendly base for a holiday. I found the location very good. Very close to the sea front as well as being a short walk way from the shops. The hotel is clean and smart and offers a friendly welcome.

There is a good variety of food to choose from and all is cooked well and tastes delicious.

The room has everything you'll need and overall is clean and tidy. The bed was on the firm side which was perfect for me and my fellow coach party travellers found it comfy too.

I would definitely stay again.

We stayed for a week full board with the ferry trip included in the package, thus saving us the hassle of booking the ferry.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The double bed was gigantic ( there was also a single bed in the room).
The only fault we could find with the room, was that during the evening when my wife wanted to rest after dinner before we went out in search of Real Ale, we could hear the entertainment from the Starlite Room as clearly as if it was in our room. This is the only reason we did not give an "excellent" rating.
The food was fantastic, a new menu each day with lots of choice, including several vegetarian options. My wife is a vegetarian and was very pleased with the choice available to her.
The restaurant staff were always cheerful and pleasant and nothing seemed too much trouble for them.
As soon as they realised my wife was a wheelchair user, they changed our table to one with easy access where we would not inconvenience other diners when we wanted to reach our table.
There was plenty of parking available with a dedicated disabled area close to the front door.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back again.

Room Tip: We chose a larger than average room to accommodate my wife's wheelchair

Nothing to fault with this hotel, I have probably been to this hotel 5 times so far and each time it is as good as the last, as a coach driver I tend to listen to my passengers and have never had a complaint about this hotel. Food is always excellent, staff never changes and are always happy and helpful, rooms are very good and clean and the hotel position very good. My company can keep sending here.

Back again for our second year as part of a large group (150+) of car enthusiasts. Very comfortable stay. Food very good. Room clean and quiet apart from corridor fire door closures which need could do with being damped.
