Best poached eggs - Rating 5/5

Only joking, but Ian or Boz as he prefers to be called does cook a mean poached egg. Breakfast was perfect every morning. I was made to feel more than welcome and I don’t think anything would have been to much trouble if I’d asked. Thanks again Boz and Claire, I’m sure I’ll be back, all best wishes.Ian.

Ron and myself had a delightful visit at your place.Your helpful suggestions made our stay good.We love to explore around a new area but this is a first for us without our own vehicle so we were challenged.I have to say the highlight for us on the Isle was Ventnor Botanical gardens and even though we were limited on where we could travel the gardens were the best choice for us. Everyone on the Isle is so friendly and helpful to tourists. A very enjoyable visit.

Nice place, great location - Rating 5/5

We only stayed one night but will definitely be back. The owners Kelly and his wife(Mary I think) were very accommodating indeed and do all that they can to make your stay a pleasant one. Many thanks to you both. Less than a minutes walk to the old Town of Shanklin the location is fantastic too.

B&B in the very heart of Shanklin - Rating 4/5

Charming B&B in a prime location, right in the heart of thriving Shankling and within a stone's throw of restaurants and the theatre. About 20 mins walk to the cliffs &beach.Lovely house too, accommodation is basic but super-clean and a very tasty breakfast was served. A friendly welcome, free parking &wifi and reasonably prices. What more can you ask for?

a great place to stay- Rating 5/5

this hotel is well located just off the old village, the owners were very nice and helpful, they tried to be as accomerdating for all guests, the breakfast menu was quite wide and service was very quick, the bed rooms were comfortable not posh but had all you needed with ensweet , tv, tea and coffee making, I had one real problem that was not the fort of the hotel but soon learnt my lesson on the first two nights I parked my car in the carpark under trees the car was coverd with bird extrament that was differcult to remove as i am sure it must have been from rusting seagulls, not even the local car wash could move it off so repersisioned the car from then on. As I say food was very good, Owners of hotel was very good and helpful to all, and well situated for old village and for walkers not too far from good walks and the beach.

Relaxing 3 days - Rating 4/5

The hotel is situated in the heart of Shanklin Old Village, not so near that you get disturbed by traffic. The couple Mary &Kelly that run the hotel are lovely people, cant do enough to make your tay a pleasurable one. the room we had was a family room with double bed had a nice balcony overlooking Grange Road which was very nice place to relax on. We were on a bed and breakfast break, the breakfast was to die for it was lovely, I had full english every morning cooked to perfection, there was bre4ad for toast and you had a form which you fill in with your preferences for breakfast which made it very easy for Mary and Kelly. Overall a vey enjoyable stay at a reasonable price.

relaxing and pleasurable - Rating 5/5

Kelly and Mary are excellent hosts. From the moment we got to the Braemar we were welcomed by Kelly who spoke to us like we were all friends. He showed us to our room which was very nice. The room was big enough and with adequate facillities for our stay. It over looked the carparkwhich was important to us as we had travelled bymotorbike. Theowners were understanding as they were bikers themselves at some time. The couple made us feel very welcome and their hospitality was shared amongst the other guests. The breakfast was cooked to our liking and made upon our arrival at the breakfast room (not keptwarm under heaters). The location of the hotel is good as eateries and pubs are close by. We wolud definitely reccommend this hotel and hope to go back in the future.
