It's clear they like to get...

A delightful bed and breakfast stay in the IOW. First class hospitality and breakfast, the charming hosts offer a good value bed and breakfast in their Victorian home and the room we had, welcomes you back after a day on the beach/walking/sightseeing.

We stayed at the Clarence House in Shanklin on Apr 20-21, 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Clarence House is a classic Victorian style home, in a fantastic location. Margy and Graeme are warm and welcoming, and made a wonderful British breakfast. We highly recommend staying at the Clarence House if visiting Shanklin. Ward C Calgary, Canada

We were due to stay for two nights but unfortunately could only stay one as we had a family crisis that meant we had to go home. The whole place feels like you are staying with a relative.

Thanks very much for your kind review. We acknowledge that this room and en-suite are snug but this is perhaps a feature of B and B's mostly housed in what used to be private houses. We aim to make up for that with superb service, extras, prices, special offers and food.
