“Sad to be back at home now!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Just had another 6 night stay at the Snowdon - can't remember how many times we have been now - not as many as some other people but we have been at least 5 times now. Each time is just as good as the last and I am very sad to be back at home now and cooking my own breakfast! Love the breakfasts at the Snowdon and my husband loves to see how much toast and homemade marmalade he can get through each day!!! Can't wait for next year to come again or maybe we will have a little break before that.... Thanks Sally and Mike for yet another great stay.

Room Tip: We have stayed in 3 different rooms but room 6 is definitely our favourite!

Each visit to The Snowden seems to be better than the last if that is possible.

Once again we had a warm welcme, our room was ready with everything we needed in it (tea/coffee/water etc) and once we had unpacked we ventured off out and came for a good night's sleep!!

Breakfast was served in the mornings to the highest standards, service was excellent and nothing was any trouble, if you had an special requirements these were met without any hesitation. As we have stayed here several times now as had a couple of the other guests who were there at the same time it was lovely to have a nice bit of chit chat in the friendly atmosphere at The Snowdon. The extensive breakfast menu meant you were spoilt for choice Juice/Fruit Salad or Smootie/Melon or Grapefruit, cereals, cooked breakfast its hard to choose which one to have followed by toast and jam/honey or homemade marmalade with endless tea/coffee etc....you will not leave your table hungry!!!

Rooms are serviced daily and if you need any information regarding where to visit/directions etc you only have to ask

We are now looking at booking our next visit and know exactly where will be staying.....at The Snowdon.

Excellent value, excellent breakfast.....just simply EXCELLENT

Room Tip: Rooms 6 and 11 have been totally refurbished

So I have once again returned to The Snowdon for a few days.......this is now my 6th stay and I can honestly stay I am as comfortable here as I am at home. As always a warm welcome awaited and our room was clean, warm and cosy. After a good nights rest we went for our breakfast which was the "muffin" for hubby and poached eggs (cooked perfectly) and bacon for me before heading out for the day, we returned in the evening and sat in the lounge for a while before another night's rest. Breakfast on the second day was "muffin" for me and full english for hubby which we both enjoyed before having to pack our cases and say goodbye. The owners Mike and Sally always offer exellent accomodation, good rates and fantastic breakfasts I am already starting to plan my next visit!!!

We stayed for 7 nights and again another fantastic stay at The Snowdon. As usual a spotlessly clean room with plenty of space to chill out and relax. A superb breakfast to 'set you up' for the day (plenty of choice - I can recommend the bacon and egg muffins). Good quiet location, only a few minutes walk from both town and beach. Can't wait until our next stay!!!

Well the Snowdon is just like home from the minute you arrive to the time you have to leave you feel "at home" but the big bonus is there is no housework to be done!! We have had 5 stays there now over the last 2 years residing in various rooms and each and every stay has been our absolute pleasure, the rooms are always spotlessly clean and cosy with fluffy towels, tea/coffee tray,TV, hairdryer, clock radio. The beds are very comfortable and you can always find brouchers in the hall for many of the Islands attractions to visit. The breakfast menu is so good you have to try something different everyday but the "poached" eggs are always a winner!! Mike and Sally are always able to give sound advice on places to dine etc and nothing is too much trouble. You will never regret spending some time here.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but if its available and you want a little bit of extra luxury try room 6 :)

spent 2 nights at the Snowdon house B&B at the weekend and had a very pleasant stay, my hubby and I stayed in room 6 which had a four poster bed with a tempar mattress, the room was big and had a nice bathroom with twin basins and a large shower, we chose the English breakfast which was cooked to perfection and consisted of one sausage one rasher of bacon one large mushroom one soft fried egg one hash brown and some baked beans tea and toast. You will need to take your own teabags if you want decaf as I do but they do have decaf coffee.
Everything was spotlessly clean and in good decorative order although a little outdated in the communial areas.
The location was a little disappointing as Shanklin town was a little run down and untidy but the Old town was quaint.
If we stayed again we would probably stay in Ventnor.

Room Tip: Room 6 had a four poster bed and generous sized bathroom.
