Booked for 3 nights for the IOW festival when our previous hotel was unavailable. Just looked for a reasonably priced one nearby with a double and twin room. Welcome by the owners was great and they kindly let us check in early so we could get back to the festival in good time. The twin was great - large and on ground floor with door to the terrace/garden and lovely views to the sea. There was an issue with our booked double so due to a cancellation that was changed to a family room in the first floor at the front with great views too. Both had good tv's, tea making facilities and plenty of toiletries in the bathroom (both shower only). Breakfast was brought to you and included orange juice, cereals or fruit and we all had the fruit salad which was excellent. Then there was a freshly cooked full English or an variation of items with tea/toast which was always very nice. It is more of a B&B than hotel, is not modern and some of the fittings are quite old but it was great value and perfect for us!…
Well located for beach, town and it’s restaurants. Free Parking at rear of hotel or on street at the front. Bernie and Lesley were excellent hosts and have run the hotel for 17 years so they know the area and are a great source of information. It’s a B&B with an excellent breakfast offering. The room we stayed in was dated but everything worked well. We were in room 10 as we had our dog with us. The room had access to the garden via a patio outside the room. Great not only for the dog but also great views of the sea. And easy access to beach and town. The patio had a table and chairs for our use. Bernie and Lesley did our ferry booking for us from Lymington to Yarmouth and got us a good discount. They also managed to tweak our return sailing for us too. Best to check reviews before booking and book direct with hotel to get discount/trade ferry price. If you want a clean room (although dated but well maintained) a decent bed and good location in Shanklin this has to be on your list.…
Awful place .Dated decor, faded paintwork & in places, peeling wallpaper. Shower didn't function properly (told by owner to lean over side of bath & hold it lower!) Bathroom in a dilapidated state, next to a noisy boiler which was next to the bedroom! WiFi didn't work in my room (apparently it had a problem with Samsung phones!) Cobwebs aplenty, wires & cables loose in the room, the place was a mess!! I hardly slept all week! Don't ever stay here,it's dire!
Had a five night stay here and we had an absolutely brilliant stay. Bernie and Leslie are fantastic hosts who can't do enough for you. The family room we had was plenty big enough and nice and clean. We also had doors leading out to the terrace/garden where we could sit and have a morning coffee whilst the kids had a play which was lovely. We also had a superb breakfast every morning, (loads of choice) to kickstart the day with. Views overlooking the sea and only a couple of minutes walk to the seafront. Would recommend this place without hesitation.
We just returned and really enjoyed our stay. We had a ground floor room with the terrace so was nice to sit outside, great sea view. Very friendly and helpful, clean rooms, good size. Lovely breakfast. Thank you.
Great hotel and Bernie and Lesley are fantastic hosts! We spent 3 nights in room 2 on the ground floor at the beginning of August and have no complaints. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated but we understand a revamp is planned, but I hope the beautiful French doors are replaced with something in keeping with the originals. Lovely views of the sea from our room and as the hotel is on the road leading to the beach it is very quiet at night and just a 5 minute walk to the beach, bars and restaurants. We had tea and coffee making facilities, toiletries in the bathroom and huge towels which is a big plus for me! The room was very large, very clean with plenty of storage space and everything we needed. Lesley cooks a fantastic English breakfast and nothing is too much trouble. Bernie is a wonderful host and very helpful in explaining which buses/train we needed to catch, where to eat and just as importantly, where not to drink! We parked our car on arrival and only used it when we left. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return and have recommended the Curraghmore to our family and friends.…
Reviewed by Olivia (7): You should really go. It is near a fantastic beach. Bernie and Leslie are very lovely. Leslie the great cook makes an English breakfast and that is egg, bacon and sausage and you can have tea or coffee. The bed rooms were great. They have bunkbeds and a double bed and single beds. Go and book it now! It's also 5 minutes to walk to the beach.
This year was our third time staying at the Curraghmore. We tend to be out for the most part and only return to the hotel to sleep. It has always been clean with daily maintenance cleaning done when we are out. Leslie and Bernie have always been amazing and go above and beyond for us. They allowed us to charge our Electric Vehicle each night via a 3 pin plug which is a massive help (IOW is a little short on useable chargers). Their son, Matt even pumped up the kids ball using Bernies electric pump the day we left. Breakfasts have always been hot and enjoyable. They have always catered to our children’s rather strange food combinations/requests. Last year we took my mum with us and she enjoyed herself having her own little room next to ours. All in all it has always been an enjoyable stay for us and would recommend to family and friends..…
Great location, Bernie and Leslie excellent hosts. Rooms clean, overall very happy. Shanklin beach is only a five minute walk from the hotel also nearby is shanklin chine which stayd open until 10pm.plenty of restaurant s in the old village would recommend Vernon cottage which has outdoor seating in a large garden and you don't have to pre-book, Most of the other restaurants need a reservation.
My boyfriend booked this as a last minute cheap get away for the bank holiday. The price was brilliant for 2 nights with breakfast. I looked at a few reviews but went with an open mind and I can definitely recommend a stay here, we will be back for sure! Yes it is a bit dated but that fits with the theme of shanklin in general, it’s a beautiful little town and some of it really feels like stepping back in time, so if you’re looking for modern and 0 personality then it’s not for you. We were greeted by the owners on arrival who are warm, friendly, funny and welcoming. We were also able to check in early as our room was ready. The room, although small, had everything we needed, a very comfy bed and pillows, fresh sheets and towels, tea, coffee, a tv and a shower (as I’d emailed and requested prior to arrival) it was clean and cosy and everything we needed. The breakfast was lovely and cooked fresh to order and served in a little dining room. The only suggestion I could make to the owners would be to have some background noise in there as it’s very quiet when you’re eating in close proximity to other guests, maybe put a radio in there or something (maybe I’m just shy of eating loudly around people haha!) all in all a perfect weekend away and very happy with such a service for such a price. I feel we got more than we paid for! It feels more of a b&b than a hotel which is in no means negative, beautiful building and excellent location.…
