Reviewed 4 September 2013

Reading all the current reviews sometimes makes you wonder what exactly to expect, then when you stay here you know what to write! Myself and my wife have just spent 4 nights from Friday 30th August - Tuesday September 3rd 2013 and the best way I can describe the stay was we never felt like guests, more like one of the family! Dave & Kath are really nice hosts and make you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door.
Rooms very clean and tidy and really nice breakfast, Beck especially loved the Granola & banana cake!!!!
The location is perfect for the old village, the beach and the lovely walk to Sandown. We were spoiled in every way, including the weather.
To us it is definitely a place we would not hesitate to return and to recommend to anyone.

I spent just 3 nights here recently with my grownup son.
Kath and Dave went out of their way to make us feel welcome and kept us informed about the best places to go and where to eat and drink etc.They keep an up to date guide of guests' favourite walks and restaurants, which are really helpful, particularly to first timers on the island. The room could not have been better, all the facilities including wifi were great, the shower room was the best I have experienced anywhere and the breakfasts likewise. Dave is an excellent cook, and attention to detail is second to none throughhout.
The location close to the beach suited us well and Shanklin is a really good base for visiting other beautiful parts of the island, of which there are many.
I will definitely come here again whenever I revisit the island, and will encourage my friends and family to stay here too.
Thoroughly recommendable to all, except of course those with young kids !!!

Room Tip: We only had one twin room, which was excellent value, on the ground floor, peaceful and extremely co...

This was our first visit to Westbury Lodge and we can agree completely with all recent reviews. We had a very enjoyable 3 nights stay, our room was spotless and very well presented. Kath and Dave are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts (cooked by Dave) were freshly prepared to order and absolutely delicious. We are not people to return to the same place on a regular basis but we would not have any hesitation returning in the very near future. We would highly recommend Westbury Lodge to anybody who wanted to stay somewhere special! Well done Cath and Dave! Thank you from J & K.

Our 3 night stay was excellent. Kath and Dave were really friendly and welcomed us with tea and biscuits on arrival. Our room was lovely, like a home-from-home, and the bed really comfortable. Dave's breakfasts were great and set us up for the day - we didn't need any lunch! We would certainly recommend it, and would love to return one day soon.

Room Tip: Room 9 was on ground floor and had 3 large windows.

We had a lovely stay at Westbury Lodge, Shanklin. It was spotlessly clean, very well maintained, homely, with a relaxed atmosphere. Kath made us feel welcome and helped us out with ideas of places to go and eat. Breakfast was a feast, with many lovely healthy and non healthy options - namely the fried breakfast cooked by Dave, which the family really enjoyed. The presentation of the food was a nice touch too. There were many little touches that made the stay a pleasant one and would be of help should you stay for longer than a few nights. The Lodge is situated very close to both the seaside and the town facilities of Shanklin and was an ideal place to explore the Isle of Wight from. Kath and Dave willingly posted us something we left behind, which we really appreciated and although they said not to worry, we will of course reimburse them for the postage. We have already recommended Westbury Lodge to friends and family and would definitely stay there again when we next visit the island.

Absolutely superb place to stay. Breakfasts are exceptional. Rooms are beautiful and facilities for guests are first class. Dave & Kath are brilliant hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. They have thought of everything to make their guests confortable. If you're looking for somewhere to stay for a restful stay - don't hesitate. We will be going back!
