My husband and myself have had a number of short breaks instead of an annual holiday in recent years and by carefully researching on trip advisor we have always picked good places to stay - Westbury Lodge is no exception. Spotlessly clean, lovely bright and airy room, spacious public rooms, superb breakfast choice (hot options were well cooked and presented) and pleasant and helpful owners - so a big thank you to Kath and Dave.
From the hotel, the Shanklin Old Village and the Rhylstone Gardens are a short, fairly level approx 10 mins walk and the beach/seafront is easily accessible via either the lift (5 mins stroll if you have mobility issues) or down a slope (10 mins stroll). Would we stay again? Certainly!

Room Tip: Room 6 is spacious, bright and airy with a nice bathroom, if bed size matters, check with the owners...

We have stayed at numerous b&b's over the years but this was by far the best. Kath & Dave are extremely friendly & nothing is too much trouble. You feel like one of the family when you leave. The breakfast is very good with good quality food & if you fancy something different to the full english (like we did on occasion) they are only to willing to comply. We stayed in a superior room (9), which had recently been decorated & which was excellent. Room was modern, spacious with a queen size bed & the bathroom had also recently been decorated & had a larger than average shower. Although there are fewer parking spaces than rooms we were more than happy to leave our sports car on the adjacent roads overnight, as it is a very quiet area. The lounge and conservatory are also very nice, of a good standard & comfortable. I would definitely recommend this b&b to anyone without hesitation.

Received very warm welcome from Kath upon arrival.

Room was light and airy being a good size with a big bed and coffee/tea making facilities.

Our stay there (1 night) was quiet and peaceful.

Cooked breakfast in the morning was superb!

Only small negatives were 1. the size of the shower cubicle in the room which was a bit on the small side; 2. No bar licence and so no facility to serve alcohol to guests.

Overall, a great B&B to stay!

We are sorry you were disappoited that we had "No bar licence and so no facility to serve alcohol to guests" but our web site home page clearly states "Although not licensed to serve alcohol we are more than happy to provide corkscrews, glasses and ice if guests wish to purchase from outside of the hotel".

Regarding the shower cubicle, it's an 800mm quadrant and has never been a negative in the past.

On our first trip to the island 6 of us stayed at Westbury Lodge. We couldn't have made a better choice. The rooms were excellent, the breakfasts delicious and most of all our hosts, Kath and Dave, couldn't do enough for us. The use of a large guest lounge added to our enjoyment. There were several good restaurants within walking distance so we could enjoy our evenings without having to get in a car.We shall return!
