Greeted with a friendly welcome from Claire on arrival to The Royson. The B&B was very clean as usual. Breakfast cooked to perfection, along with the range of other breakfasts avaliable. Used Claire's and Guy's knowledge of local eateries and attractions to make it an enjoyable long weekend. Looking forward to my next stay.

Excellent nights sleep at the Royson with a cheeky upgrade thanks to our host. Very welcoming and nice breakfast, very attentive service but not over powering. We are definitely going to return in April.

Breakfasts have been tasty and lots to choose from. The family are very knowledgeable on things to do and see and places to go on this beautiful Island. Booking my next...

I don't quite know where to start with this review but here goes. The family that run it make you feel welcome from the moment you step through the door. I was greeted warmly and an offer made to take some of the cases upstairs. The room was shown to me and the key points about breakfast were all explained...

We were well looked after by Claire and her son in this clean well appointed B&B. The location is a short distance from the Coastal Path and a short walk into Sandown or Shanklin. Close to all amenities with a very good pub restaurant within a short walking distance. ( see my review of the Hideaway) Claire was very helpful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Emphasis at The Royson is on genuine hospitality and delicious home cooking from hearty full English breakfasts to lovingly prepared 3 course evening meals. You will find The Royson ideally situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Shanklin just a minute away from the cliff top path, panoramic views of Sandown Bay and Blueberries licensed cafe. (Cafe open Tuesday to Sunday during the main season) Perfect as a base for exploring the Island or just popping down to the beach. The hustle and bustle of Shanklin town is just 20 minutes walk away or 5 minutes by car or by bus, where you will find bars, restaurants and gift shops, then leave all that behind when you return to the peaceful settings of The Royson. ... more   less
