Great Hotel
Our stay at The Havelock was extremely pleasant. The hotel was very clean and well presented. Paul and Vicky were excellent hosts and were always on hand for a friendly chat. The breakfast was very good and all the serving staff were so friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is great - with old Shanklin village, Shanklin Chine and the beach all nearby. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Havelock and will hopefully return one day. Thoroughly recommend!

Good stay
We stayed in room 11 - although great access to the pool, there was noise from the kitchen area below (in the evening and early morning). The bathroom is far too small for a family suite. Good location - we got around on foot most of the time. Very friendly staff serving breakfast.
