Our 2nd visit to the Shanklin Hotel was two years ago, and was as good as we remembered it from the first time. The food was excellent, as was the service, not one thing I could criticise.
Nice pool/Jacuzzi Bath, and Sauna, which was made full use of.
I understand some, if not all of the Hotel has had refurbishment, so look forward to another visit hopefully in April (2014).
2/3 minutes walk from the cliff top Lift (elevator) this operates on a seasonal basis....unless things have changed from our last visit two years ago (doubt it) it will take you down to the promenade and all that is on offer there. Also just a few minutes walk from the High St.
Never had any problem parking in the Hotel grounds, but if it were in the height of the season "maybe" there could be problems.
As ever with the Isle of Wight, you are never far from a totally different Town/Village. Get fed up with one place or just want a change of scenery, then hop in your car or onto a Bus and sometimes Within minutes you are somewhere totally different. Attractions, of which there are many, from Carisbrooke Castle/Osbourne House (Queen Victorias getaway) Wildlife Park/Blackgang Chine, very good for the Kids, and a host of other things to see and do.....Some "Seasonal", check before visiting.
If you have never been to the Isle of Wight before, then this Island is a must see place, excellent for Kids as well, plenty to keep them entertained, all day everyday throughout the Island.
This Hotel like many others on the Island offers "Free" Car Ferry included on the price of your stay, usually on their "Special Offers", always check before booking.
