This is not a four star hotelPosted Jan 23, 2015
This place is advertised online as a four star hotel, which is extremely misleading. Upon arrival you have to ring a bell and wait for someone to let you in, there is a little hut for reception that was never open, the bar is also in this area and it's self service. Whilst it's not terrible, it's just extremely misleading. I wouldn't have booked it if I had known what it was going to be like. I don't know how this can pass as a four star hotel, it's a bed and breakfast and not a good one at that.....disappointing!

Individuelles kleines HotelPosted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: Sehr schönes Zimmer, viele zeitgen. Gemälde.
Cons: Keine Zimmern in den oberen Etagen, Gepacktransport sehr beschwerlich
Location: Schrittentfernung zu guten Restaurants, einfacher Ausgangspunkt für Inselerkundungen.
Versteckt gelegen, von der Straße ist der Patkplatz und die Rezeption nur schwer zu finden. Nachteilig bei Zimmer im 2. Stock ist das Fehlen eines Aufzuges.Sonst sehr gemütlich mit sehr individuellem Flair. Zentral im Dorf gelegen, aber für Strandbesucher eher ungeeignet, steiler Fußweg mind.30 Min.

Had a wonderful time. The only complaint I had was the fire alarm going off in the middle of the night because the fireplace wasn't properly looked after. The shower was the best I've ever had in a B&B and breakfast was very well prepared.

Already thinking of returning early next yearPosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Very clean rooms. Full breakfasts every morning. Lovely sea views.
Wonderful hotel Warm and inviting hosts. Both Jenni and Andrea went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately most of the attractions on the island were closed as it was out of season. Would definitely like to return after Easter.

Not good value for moneyPosted Jun 11, 2013
Cons: Outside space poor
Location: Ok but can hear road traffic, no sea views but very convenient to Shanklin old town
This hotel was just 'OK'. It was nothing special (which was disappointing as it was my wife's 40th birthday treat) and I certainly didn't feel it was good value for money. The rooms were pokey but clean, the staff were friendly and helpful but the outside space was poor. The garden was over grown, the deck was shabby, the outside furniture tired and everything needed some TLC. As a result we didn't stay at the hotel during the day! If it had been half the price then I would understand but even then I would be disappointed as I wanted a luxury stay and it certainly wasn't that.

an excellent place to unwind, in an ideal locationPosted Apr 21, 2013
Pros: you very soon feel at home
Cons: The shower room was a little cramped, but that does not necessarily apply to all rooms as some have bathrooms
Location: For us ideally situated in a quiet part of the island with excellent facilities
This is a B & B with a hotel feel about it We were met by friendly and helpful staff, who showed us the facilities and the unlimited teas, coffees and afternoon cake. Other drinks from the bar were purchased on a trust basis. Our room was spacious and clean, and the bed was wonderful...we slept really well. There was an excellent variety of breakfast, which meant you don't need much for lunch, if you don't want to. The location was ideal in Old Shanklin with no shortage of restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Once you arrive you could leave the car there, and just use the bus or train which were only 2 minutes away giving you easy access to the rest of the island. The lounge was comfortable with a variety of games available, and although the weather on our trip did not allow it, the decking area looked a great place to sit with a drink in the sun, chatting to your fellow vacationers.

Charming and relaxing.Posted Nov 5, 2012

Location: Well located for the village.
The only thing that let the hotel down was the lack of internet access in the rooms.
