Warm, welcoming, very friendly B&B/ Guesthouse
Posted Sep 14, 2015
We've just returned from a lovely holiday on the Isle of Wight where we stayed at The Heatherleigh, which is a wonderfully friendly, comfortable, ideally situated guesthouse just 8 minutes walk from Shanklin Old Village and a 5 minute stroll from the lovely beach and seafront at Shanklin.
The hosts, Mary, Kim and Cam..... and their fabulously friendly dog, Daisy May, were the loveliest, most helpful and welcoming hosts you could hope for in a guesthouse. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were full of enthusiasm and information on places to visit and things to do and see. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, with lots of choices and many offerings of extras or top-ups! The rooms were beautifully clean and spacious with linen/towel changes every couple of days.
They all took great delight in chatting to their guests and making us all feel extremely "at home", making us all able to chat together within minutes of meeting up over breakfast, which was usually a relaxed and drawn out meal, rather than a hastily "eat and be gone" one.
I would (and have done) recommend this delightful B & B, and encourage anybody to book there for a lovely relaxing break on this charming Isle!
