“Excellent Weekend”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I have once again returned from the Shanklin Hotel after another Masonic Lodge Ladies Weekend. This hotel did not disappoint us. Although a lot of people arrived together at the hotel , the check in process was swift and efficient. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and couldnt do enough for you.
Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable,with good quality bed linen and nice fluffy towels.
We had a choice of food on the friday night, which was cooked really well and served piping hot and to all the table at once. The Saturday night was a set meal but this was really superb. Again piping hot and everyone served together, which is no mean feat when there were about 140 of us in the dining hall. Bar and drinks prices were reasonable.
You can either take a short walk into Shanklin town or as the hotel is very near the cliff which leads to the promenade, take a slow stroll into Sandown.
A great weekend was had by all from the comments I heard and I would not hesitate to go back again.

Rooms were warm and comfortable, food was amazing and served HOT, staff were friendly and very helpful. The amenities were excellent and the prices more than reasonable. Off the main road and with a seaview location I would recommend this hotel whether you want a quiet family get away or a large group visit like we did and we hope to be returning soon.

The staff are lovely. The rooms were spacious. I was in a single. Great place for a large venue at great prices.....Can't complain really! Shanklin could do with more tourism. It's a little tired, but good for charity shops. The hotel is very near the cliff which leads down to the promenade, that has some nice pubs and restaurants. If you like cazy golf.. It's a must! Location wise it is brilliant. Be warned the cliff lift is out of action during winter months.

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.

Room Tip: We had a room that was in the block over the Pool, therefore away from the main area. However this i...
