This Guest House was wonderful value for money. Immaculate, friendly, good food, every conceivable effort to make our stay memorable. We'll definitely be back and will recommend to our friends.

Cannot add a lot to previous very favourable reviews - but I can mention:

a) Very large and comfortable lounge
b) Quiet area - yet close to centre of Shanklin and beach (although you do need to walk down cliff steps)
c) TV that actually works in room and gets all freeview channels
d) Friendly hosts
e) Good breakfasts
f) Loved the list of extras that are available (such as more milk) left in the room
g) Free wifi


etc, etc!

If I was being really picky the only issue would be the noise of the plumbing when other residents are in the bath/shower.

I would thoroughly recommend this B & B to anyone wanting to stay in Shanklin.

We found this B&B by googling and then checked tripadvisor to find reviews - all of which seemed to spell out how good the B&B was, they weren't wrong!

The B&B was really good - good room, good breakfast and great hosts! Kath was really helpful pre- and post-booking and both her & Dave were very welcoming.

Whilst there are only a few off-road parking spaces we only had 1 day when these were not free and even then there is plenty of non-restricted road-side parking despite the number of B&Bs/hotels in the area so parking was not a problem.

The only odd thing about the room was how loud the power shower was but that's hardly a show stopper!

I would definitely recommend this B&B and it is in a good location - a short walk from the old town and a short walk down the cliff path (or lift) to the esplanade and Shanklin beach. It is also a good base for exploring the island.

My husband and I wanted to go for a small holiday to celebrate our one year anniversary and after we had decided to go to IOW we had a look on here to find a place to stay. The other reviews says it all, this place is no 1 for one particular reason, the great hosts Kat and Dave. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left they were nothing but helpful and easy to talk to and the breakfast was great as well. Please note that this is an adult only b&b which I found really good seeing that it means you don't get a lot of noise in the evenings from kids and youngsters and considering the number of school kids that were around everywhere on the island (or so it seemed) at the time it made me appreciate the peace and quiet of this place even more. Don't get me wrong I don't mind kids and of course even adults can make noise when they get home from a night out, but I never noticed any kind of noise. The guestbook there spoke its own story about how much everyone before us had enjoyed their stay there, so even though not everyone write their reviews on here I can tell you that people only had nice words to say about the place.

The standard of the rooms and the place itself was very high and if we ever go back to IOW I know where I will be booking a room again.

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of April and can only echo all of the other reviews - everything was first class - Kath & Dave are great hosts, the rooms are spotlessly clean and very well appointed, breakfast is excellent. Can't fault Westbury Lodge at all!!
