Shanklin Beach Hotel

Very enjoyable stay at the hotel.

Unfortunately we had no hot water in the room for the two nights we stayed but the hotel reimbursed us the cost of one night plus a free breakfast. They also offered to change our room for the second night but we decided it was not worth the hassle of moving rooms. But credit to the management for offering us what we regard as a fair settlement. Hotel is in a nice location right on the seafront with a nice balcony and table overlooking the beach. A nice breakfast with plenty of choice. Staff friendly and attentive. Would certainly stay again if we had some hot water this time.

Great value, great location, but not so great for tv signal!!

Booked the stay very last minute, received an upgrade to a sea facing room with large balcony!.

Have stayed at the hotel on numerous occasions...convenient location, entertainment on site, but not too noisy if you decided to get an early night!. TV kept losing signal, in each room that we have stayed in, reception not always manned, but bell to be rung and never waited for too long...thick dust behind the TV set and the shower leaked a little, but would definitely return to the hotel in the future as the good far outweighs the bad!!

The room was very basic, hairs in the bath and no shower, only a plastic tap hose fixing type.

Couldnt sleep because the noise from the room above, could hear everything, felt like the people were in our room. Would not go back to this Hotel.

The room was decent for a weekend stay with my boyfriend but the walls are so thin that could not sleep at night due to the people next door snooring and the morning at 6 am could hear people walking on the top room was that bad that I jumped out the bed few times.

Great Place but Average Room - what you pay is what you get

Shower room was lousy with shower fixed with tub , they provided a rubber tube like stuff u attach to pipe and make it as shower really fighted around 10 mins to get a shower with that tube/hose connection .

Just a average room but clean but location is amazing ... 50 pounds is what i paid so nothing to expect more or extra.

Great position, Excellent Disabled Facilities, Would Go Back.

Although the building is a bit tired, efforts have been made to bring it up to a good standard.

The room we were in, 134, was first floor, overlooking the beach and esplanade, with a nice balcony. The shower room could do with a refurb, but was adequate. Kelly was a great help getting us a suitable room to suit my partner's needs, and we enjoyed the evening entertainment. Would return again one day, maybe next time would go for B & B and Evening Meal. The menu looked very nice.

We <3 Shanklin Beach Hotel

We booked through Laterooms and what a little treat we had when we opened our balcony doors to the sound of the ocean.

Rooms are basic but who cares when you have a view like that. Good value for money. Friendly staff and the best location. We loved our stay and would definitely go back there.

Shanklin Beach Hotel

Very disappointed, very basic , certainly needs updating.

Also we were hoping for a chilled weekend and were upset as we were above the kitchen. The extractor was outside our window and woke us up at 6am. Voices from the kitchen were loud and banging cupboard doors..
