Myself, husband and teenage son has stayed at the Havelock now on 5 occassions. I have to say that every time has been fantastic. But on booking the hotel in April of this year. We were informed that the hotel has new owners and we were a little bit apprehensive. But I have to say there was no need to be.
Having stayed already at the hotel 4 previous times. We really thought that there was no way we would have such an enjoyable stay as before. But we did. Dave and Ann are absolutely wonderful. They are professional and friendly. There is nothing too much trouble for them. They make you feel so welcome. All the staff are brilliant too.
The rooms are lovely and have been redecorated. They are spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic. They serve snacks during the day till the early evening. There is a wonderful bar area to relax. As well as a splendid pool which is heated, with plenty of sun loungers. A raised decking area which is a real sun trap, where you can also have a drink and have something to eat.
The hotel has seaviews from some rooms. The beach, shops and resturants are only a short walk away. There is so much to see and do. Shanklin is a lovely little seaside town.
We will be going back again in the not too distant future.
