Fabulous great value guest house
We stayed for 4 nights in the Superior King with four-poster bed and we were not disappointed. Lesley and Colin were warm, friendly hosts and the room was large, airy and very clean. The shower room was compact but perfectly suitable and the breakfast choices were generous and beautifully cooked. All in all we were so pleased we stayed at the Birkdale and if (when) we return to Shanklin we will have no hesitation in booking at the Birkdale again.
