This is a very special hotel. Perched on the cliff top overlooking Shanklin to the south and Sandown to the north, the amazing sea views are unbeatable. Our suite was perfect for us and our young labrador Alfie, with an enclosed private garden area. The suite itself was beautifully appointed, and of the highest quality. Breakfast was just perfect, perfect choice and perfectly presented and cooked, from what has to be said, a rather stunning dining room overlooking the sea. David was super helpful and informative, the perfect host. Thanks to his recommendations, we had some superb evening meals out at various restaurants on the island - a perfect way to spend a special birthday. Thank you.
Just back from 4 days in this wonderful hotel. Lovely room, great service, fabulous position on cliff above the sea. The garden is magnificent as are the public rooms. We didnt use the pool but it looked very nice. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order. Many fine restaurants nearby which David will recommend. The cliff walk just outside the garden is superb, with steps down to the beach and lovely cafes on route. Cowes and Yarmouth are well worth visiting, as is Osbourne House ( dont miss the Royal beach and bathing machine!). With excellent weather and a carefree and enjoyable ferry crossing from Southampton, who need the South of France? Expensive but worth it.
We have just enjoyed 3 great days at Haven Hall and we would 100% recommend it to anyone thinking about travelling to the Isle of Wight. Fantastic location (fantastic sea views), beautiful building and first class service from start to finish. We were made to feel extremely welcome by David the owner and given lots of helpful information on places to eat, visit and enjoy. A fantastic host SUPER dog friendly so Freddie the retriever loved it. Getting up in the morning and enjoying a nice run around the beautiful gardens set him up for the day. Breakfast was great. LOADS of food, cooked and served to a high level. Will definitely be going again
We chose both this hotel and our particular room (Victoria and Albert) from the hotel web site.We were not disappointed -in fact quite the reverse. The welcome from David was genuine and informative, as was his hospitality and attention each morning at breakfast. The views are spectacular, the internal décor and furnishings are exquisite and the standard of housekeeping is outstanding both in public rooms and bedroom. The gardens alone are worth a visit and this hotel (more accurately David and Arielle's home) is an exceptional property of which they are rightly proud and genuinely happy to share with you. The staff we met at breakfast service, the gardeners were most professional and matched the brand and ethos of this quality experience. Thank you.
A beautiful hotel with breathtaking views over the sea in Shanklin. A very warm welcome from David who showed us round the beautiful grounds and to our room. We loved that the room was a suite with a separate lounge and kitchen. Inside, the reception area of the hotel was thoughtfully decorated and we loved our cooked breakfast each morning with coastal views. We were able to relax in the grounds, take a dip in the swimming pool and enjoy many trips out to places of interest. We particulary enjoyed being close to the coastal path for walks and being able to stroll into Shanklin in the evening for dinner. Thank you David and Arielle for a lovely stay.
Just spent a few days at this wonderful hotel in Shanklin. It is the perfect place to visit the Island. The owners David and Arielle extend a warm personal welcome to their beautifully restored country house. They are justifiably proud of the hard work they have put into turning this house into an elegant and exquisitely detailed country retreat. We took a sea view suite, the room was a generous size, with a very comfortable super king-sized bed, and fitted so elegantly, and properly air-conditioned. The bathroom was a good size, again fitted thoughtfully to a high standard. There are extensive facilities from a solar heated outdoor pool, tennis court and sauna to large elegant gardens to relax in and read a book. The views are simply stunning overlooking Sandown Bay. There is plenty of parking for your car, and yes for your helicopter too. Breakfast is served in the main dining room which is a lovely sunny room overlooking the bay. Choices at breakfast are extensive and prepared freshly for you. What isn't to like. We had a lovely weekend break and cannot recommend staying at the Haven Hall too highly, it was perfect. We will be back next year.…
David, Arielle and Haven Hall never disappoint - the standards do not falter, the welcome is always warm and sincere. The only wish we have on arrival is that we would love the time for a longer stay; on departure, we have already booked our next break at this haven by the sea.
Havel Hall Hotel was the perfect retreat to relax and recharge during our stay on this beautiful island. Its location allows you to take in amazing views of the coastline. Our "Tennyson Room" was luxuriously furnished, comfortable, clean, light and airy. The heated swimming pool, tucked away from the hotel itself, was an added bonus during our stay. Breakfast was delicious and having this outside allowed us to take in breathtaking views of the sea, it was just a perfect start to the day. A big thank you to David and Arielle for welcoming us into their beautiful home which we would love to visit again one day.
Our family stayed in the Penthouse Suite and had a lovely experience. The staff were friendly to the children and did everything to make them feel at home. The views from the garden overlooking the cliffs are magical to see and we had a bit of coffee on the balcony just taking in the views. They have manicured the garden to a wonderful degree. The kids loved the swimming pool. The fridges are well-stocked. Breakfasts were nice and David always was keen for a chat and made some recommendations of things to do, roads to take and how to best utilise our time on the island. The facilities are powered by solar energy and batteries if you are a fan of sustainability. Hopefully will be back for a golf trip in the not so distant future.
Haven Hall is a top-quality hotel with a beautiful location and accommodating hosts in David & Arielle. The attention to detail is second to none, they work to ensure that your stay is as you want it even before you arrive and spend time during your stay to make sure that everything is right. The beds are very comfortable, the furnishings are high quality and breakfasts are excellent. Thoroughly recommend!
