Shanklin is beautifully situated on the cliffs bordering the South East coast of the Isle of Wight and is sheltered to the west by high-lying downs. The town is split with the old village lying on the cliff top and the new village nestled close to the sea. The two are connected by a cliff lift.


Shanklin is a town of great character and charm, with many interesting small shops and a variety of Victorian architecture. Shanklin Old Village is a perennial attraction where most of the picturesque cottages are clustered around the thatched Crab Inn. Within walking distance is Shanklin's famous Chine, a dramatic fissure in the rock where a 45ft waterfall cascades through boulders and ferns to the shore.


Shanklin's beach, surrounded by cliffs and a natural suntrap, is safe for bathing and boasts cleanliness awards for both its sand and waters. There are many amusements, restaurants and pubs, as well as water sports facilities to be found in the immediate vicinity. Gardens in Shanklin are a delight to visit. Tower Gardens and Rylstone Gardens run alongside the Chine, or take a stroll in the Big Mead, adjacent to historic St. Blasius Church, or along the spectacular coastal paths to Sandown or Bonchurch.


We pride ourselves on delivering consistently high standards throughout our hotels: clean rooms, good quality décor, bright modern bathrooms and attention to the small details that make all the difference to your stay. All hotels have a ballroom or large area for dancing and most have comfortable lounges, sun lounges or games areas where you’re free to while away the hours. Many guest rooms boast fabulous sea views, and all are immaculately presented and provided with an en suite bath or shower & WC, central heating, hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities and television with radio channels. Most also have internal telephones to take incoming calls, contact Reception or call other rooms.


The hotel has 2 ground floor bedrooms. There is level access to the bar, restaurant, lounges and ground floor rooms from Reception and the main entrance. A number of bedrooms at the hotel are accessed by some stairs which are unavoidable and some bedroom floors have small changes of level.
