We have recently returned from our 4 night stay at the Westbury Lodge. It was truely beyond our expectations - a home from home retreat!!
From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Pam & Sheila kindly offering us refreshments, whilst spending time running through what Shanklin and the Island had to offer its visitors ie recommendations on places to eat out - places to visit. And if you didn't take it all in, their mini travel bureau will help you to decide on your next move.
Our room was spotlessly clean, spacious and equipped with everything (plus more) that you would need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The breakfasts were very tasty and they didnt cut corners - the choice was excellent. The individual tables were carefully spaced apart so you didnt feel you were on top of the next guest ,rubbing elbows!
The hotel is located in a quiet residential road in Shanklin ,which was nice to escape from the hustle and bustle of day trippers in coaches visiting the gorgeous old shanklin village. We were about 10-15mins walk from here.
A little tip if you decide to leave the car at home and use the Isles excellent bus service - if you fancy taking a scenic coastal route to the Needles - take the X40 coach outside Somerfields (runs daily in high season) It's a great way just to sit back and take in the views! We bought a two day rover ticket for £20 which entitles you to hop on/off anytime, on any routes on the Island at your own leisure.
I am quite particular when it comes to staying in hotels (friends/family can vouch for me here) but I can say the Westbury Lodge have got it right!! Thanks again for such a wonderful stay, and we look forward to returning soon!
