Reviewed 16 November 2013

We travelled as 3 couples and our friend did all the arranging. I hadn't paid much attention to the details of the trip only absorbing that we were going to the Isle of Wight. My husband and I had an absolutely brilliant time at the Belmont. The owners made us feel very at home and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and I slept really well which is unusual for me even at home. I have a very stressful job working at Nottingham Children's Hospital and this trip was very much what the doctor ordered! When we come back we will definitely stay at the Belfont. Thank you so much.

If you need a chill out tonic then look no further than The Belmont Hotel Shanklin. Hosts Lyn & Des have perfected the art of home from home comforts. As soon as we arrived there was a warm welcome awaiting. The standard double room surpassed our expectations, and yes, it's true all meals and hospitalities are of a high standard. It is evident that both enjoy providing this service. It was nice to have a genuine relaxed atmosphere with a large amount of humor thrown in. Highly recommended will certainly return for more of the same.
Pete & Gina Maidstone.

Room Tip: Stayed in a double room overlooking garden. Very Quiet.

We stayed for a 3 night break with the intention of recharging our batteries. We did and left feeling extremely chilled and relaxed and did not want to go home.

There is not much we can add to all the previous positive comments except reiterate what other visitors to the Belmont have said

The bed was sooooo comfortable and the food top notch. Breakfast was a huge buffet with many choices as well as a scrumptious full cooked breakfast.

Lyn and Des are the perfect hosts, there if you need them. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with them in the bar of an evening.

Since we last stayed there have been many upgrades such as a new breakfast bar (which looks stunning) flooring and seating in the dining room, seating in the bar, plus many others all of which have only enhanced the overall experience. The complimentary coffee and cakes in the lounge was very welcome after a long afternoon walk.

Our room on the top floor with a sea view had everything in you could need, dressing room, complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits, toiletries, alarm clock, large flat screen TV, extra pillows and even binoculars to look out over the sea.

We would highly recommend the Belmont for your stay and we look forward to returning next year.

Alan & Rebecca

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was lovely to see you again after quiet along time, on the positive side of that, as you said yourselfs you noticed some of the many alterations and upgrades we have made.

Perfect getaway. Lovely people and a great location. The owners couldn't do enough for you and were very knowledgeable of the area having lived there all their lives. I would have given the overall experience 5 but bedroom we stayed in was rather on the small side!

Thank you so much for your kind review. Each room at the Belmont is individual and there are different size standard doubles, our superior and Premier rooms are much larger and do not cost that much more if space is a requirement. By booking by phone we can help you get the best room for your requirements if available. Hopefully we will see you again in the future.

Returning to the Isle is always a calming treat for myself, with the brilliant service you receive from Lyn and Des in all of the aspects of running a hotel. First class to you both, the breakfast is to die for, got to go there even if for one night to experience the variety, see you next year.

Shanklin has happy childhood memories for me - so 60+ years later we were looking for a hotel on the web & chose the Belmont on the basis of the website & photo. It was better than we expected & in the same part of town that I remember from all those years ago. The bed was brilliant the breakfast also & our hosts had the right balance of service & friendliness. The building looked stylish both inside & out.


Room Tip: The bathroom was a good size but needed a bit more shelf space for our own toiletries & perhaps...
