Shanklin Hotel by the beach

3/5 Okay

5th July 1 week
Generally ok. Nice enough room but shower was terrible with scalding water. Reported , but nothing was done about it so that doesnt instill confidence. They could do so much more to this hotel to make it more appealing such as make the outside areinviting with flowers and shrubs and nice lighting. The same could be said with the drab bar area. Overall still ok but management need to have foresight

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
While hotel is pretty usual UK one with a bit of tear and wear on the corners, rooms are spacious, staff is very professional and friendly and food is delightful - from incredible scrambled eggs to fabulous dinners. Great location, just a quick walk to the beach and close to both Sandtown and Ventnor. Good value for money!

Let down!
We booked a weekend here and other than the view, everything else was awful. Asked how to book the pool and was informed it was broken. No prior warning. Blood splatter on the bedroom wall. Dated is an understatement. A male guest was ranting on the phone in the conservatory at the front, swearing and talking about some extremely inappropriate things (ra*e) and all the staff did was shut the door, didn't ask him to be quiet and didn't challenge his need to talk about loudly at all! It felt like a hostel. Shocking is an understatement. Wouldn't return if they paid me. Go to Brunswick, beautiful place and amazing food.
