We have just returned from a week at The Fernbank hotel in Shanklin. The hotel was beautiful. The room was imaculate, the garden delightful and tranquil and all the staff were friendly and attentive. We received a warm welcome on our arrival and were made to feel very relaxed and at home. Breakfast was wonderful with everything you could wish...

We have just returned from a short break at this superb hotel. The place was spotlessly clean, with nice bedrooms and comfortable beds. The indoor pool was so warm, and we got this to ourselves every time we swam. The breakfasts were super with a huge choice of starters and mains, with homemade bread and local produce on offer. We...

We thought the hotel was very good except in our superior room there was no hot water from the bath or shower for the entire stay. The excuse was that the house was old. We live in a 16 c house with plenty of hot water. It was particularly difficult as my husband had very bad sciatica at the time....

I brought my mum here for her birthday weekend and what a lovely little find this was. Such a gorgeous hotel in a beautiful setting with added little extras too, such as the toiletries provided in the rooms, such a nice finishing touch. The owners couldn't have been more hospitable and were ever so happy, friendly and couldn't have done...

What a lovely comfy place to stay. We never want to stay anywhere else on the island. Phenomenal breakfast menu!! We have been totally spoilt. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable rooms and lounge areas. Large indoor pool. Family run with a family feel. Thank you for taking such good care of us. We will be back!

I needed a hotel where there were rooms on the ground floor and easy access from the car park. After sending an email, Jo-Anne rang me to gauge my exact requirements and she was able to offer two ground floor rooms which suited us very well as one of our party had mobility problems. The rooms were spotlessly clean. The...
