This is the first time that we have stayed at this hotel and it was a very good experiene. We had a sea view room which was spacious, clean and well presented. We were on a "Tinsel & Turkey" break the food was fantastic and plentyful. The entertainment on the monday was brilliant with the other nights ok. The staff are all very pleasant, helpful & very profesional. The hotel is well located both for town & beach. A fantastic break, looking forward to another visit. Many thanks to all at the hotel.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are well worth the extra.

This hotel keeps on providing a very good service, this is the 3rd time that we have stayed here & it was the best, the hotel has improved every time. On arrival the receptionist was very friendly & organised, our room was ready & we were given the keys, the room had only recently been refurbished, very clean, good colour scheme, & the bed was of a very good quality, the bathroom had a very good shower & everything worked. We had excellent service in the restaurant at all times & we were served quickly & efficiently, the food was of a very high standard with good sized portions. The 2 tribute acts, 'Rod Stewart & the Bee Gees' were both Top Notch & both were on for a good length of time, the 'video disco' operated by Dave, was excellent it brought back a few good memories and complimented the tribute acts very well. Great swimming pool & a large car park. Check out was good, bill was ready, very polite receptionist. All in all this was a really good weekend, we will definitely return in the future & have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of hotel overlooking car park, it was very quiet.

Have stayed before, just as an overnight stay and was happy to return.
This time, very good all round,
helpful and charming reception staff both on booking, arrival, and during our stay
nice clean room,
food good,
restaurant staff very good, we had Agnes serving us and she was spot on, attentive but not obtrusive.
Lovely clean swimming pool - with towels available
Good parking - and a really good base to explore the island
Good views towards Sandown - and a superb sunrise over the sea,
'Rod Stewart' extremely good - the best part of the entertainment.
A really fun good weekend, and one we hope to repeat with other themed weekends, as the whole package was exceptionally good value, including the ferry fare.

From the minute we arrived at the hotel we had excellent service, wonderful food, great entertainment! The staff couldn't do enough for us, especially for my friend who had been unwell on the journey! They checked on her when I was out of the hotel for a walk and were so kind. I'll be going back there, especially if "Rod Stewart" is going to be on again!!! Thanks a million, best weekend break our group's been on I'd say!

Room Tip: 2nd floor Room 57 overlooked front of hotel and we could see the sea, it was a bright and comfortable room, plenty of storage space. Lovely towels and loads of hot water at all times! Didn't get a chance to use the pool and spa but others in the group did and were very impressed.

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us for the 70's weekend...I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did! I am glad that you found the staff to be helpful. I'm afraid we can't offer you "Rod Stewart" just yet, but "Tom Jones" and "The Four Tops" will be making an appearance in February for our 60's weekend!!

As members of a choir giving concerts on the Island the management of the Shanklin Hotel were superb in their co-operation to making the stay most comfortable, and rearranging meal times to help the choir commitments. The meals were wonderful and the service very efficient. The staff were most helpful and friendly. Thank you to all for a great few days.
