    5/5 Excellent

    Great place

    Great service would happily stay again.

    4/5 Good

    Very welcoming when arrived. The room was small but more than adequate. The breakfast was well worth it. Due to my time of staying and out of season the local area was a little bit of a let down. Very hard to find something to eat (next time should ask when booking in) but apart from that a lovely stay. Thank you

    5/5 Excellent

    Nice B&B close to the beach. Very central location so easy to get around the island using public transport/ bikes. Lots to do locally. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Definitely worth staying here if you are visiting Shanklin.
