This was our first stay on the Isle of Wight for many years, and with thanks to Keith and Christine we had a very lovely time. The rooms were clean and well provisioned, and the breakfast was one of the best we had ever had. Keith and Christine went out of their way to help make our stay a memorable one in their beautiful Swiss Cottage. The location was perfect, too. Not far from the beach, the town or the quaint Shanklin Old Village.

We stayed at Swiss Cottage on a B&B basis from 2 - 6 October. Although a B&B you could go and stay in your room as much as you liked. Tea and coffee making falilities etc. In high season they do evening meals and have a bar.

The hosts are warm and engage in conversation. If you are ok with it they let you meet their cats and dogs.

We would recommend you visit. There are many nice touches that show they care.

If we return to the I of W we will return to Swiss Cottage.

Only negative is internet was down. Our and their bad look.

Room Tip: Only saw our room.

Hi Bernard & Rachael
Thanks for a lovely stay and your comments.
Yes sorry about the Internet but as mentioned my Hard Drive crashed and burned, so anyone who has that unfortunate event will sympathise as you not only have to buy a new tower but someone to rebuild your life's history which can takes days/week, as you generally lose everything!
Oh well. Its nice not to rely on computers too much and talk to each other, as nothing is that urgent when your on holiday!
Kind Regards Keith & Chris

I have just returned from my 13th stay at Swiss Cottage and, as always, it was great.
Keith and Christine are first class hosts and you always feel welcome. I have also found on my visits that it seems to attract nice people who get on well together in my experience.
The rooms are spotless, the food is excellent.
I shall be returning next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are good in my experience and I have stayed in nearly all of them

Lovely guest house, the rooms are spacious, very clean and airy with little extras in the rooms and a very comfy bed which I had trouble with getting up in the mornings ! Keith and Christine made us very welcome, going that extra mile with a balloon table with decorations and chocolates for Lorraine's Birthday at breakfast which was a nice surprise for her. The breakfasts were amazing and with plenty of choice to set us up for the day out on the superb beach or to explore this lovely island. The Swiss Cottage Hotel is very central to Shanklin beach and the very quaint little shops and plentiful restaurants Thank you Keith and Christine for a wonderful 8 days and hope to see you again soon.

Room Tip: Rooms are all excellent and the location is quiet.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hello There, We are now filling up fast so hurry up and contact us as we are 70% full for our 2017 Season already! The Swiss Cottage is the Pride of Shanklin and has been consistently voted in the Top Five with 96% or 5/5 Satisfaction for being one of the best in the Hotel category for Shanklin & the whole of the Isle of Wight. We have now won three Trip Advisor Travelers Choice Awards in 2011/12 & 2013/14 and 2016/17 aswell as Certificates of Excellence in the past 6 years running since 2012 to 2017. We have also been awarded a much sought after Green Leaders Gold Level Award in 2014, 2016 & again in 2017 for being Environmentally Friendly re our Towel, Linen, Lighting & Recycling procedures, so we would like to Thank all those who have abided by our simple guidelines to help us achieve this Award. In October 2014 we were voted the Best B&B/Guest Accommodation on the Island and were also placed in 4th Place as Highly Commended in the prestigious Tourism's The Beautiful South Awards. So why not check us out and read what everyone is saying about us! We are continually updating and keep the place clean and modern by putting in new comfy seating on the decking area, touching up the rooms and improving the place even more for your comfort. Although it only has 8 en suite bedrooms, our guest accommodation has that personal touch that many of the larger Hotels doesn't provide and is run by Keith & Christine the Owners. Whether it is B & B or Half Board we have tried to cater for everyone's needs whether single, double, friends or families, (sorry NO Children under 10 years of age or babies/infants and no animals as we have pets of our own), a safe environment for females and groups, in our comfortable modern bedrooms and bathrooms that we have converted in this old 1866 family home. (Unfortunately we do charge a Single Supplement in our School Summer Holidays and also slightly higher rates over our popular Bank Holidays & Festival Weekends). We have tried to think of everything for you, from Flat screen TVs, DVD, CD Players, Sky, Free WI-FI, fans, mini fridges and much more to make your stay a pleasurable one! We also arrange discounted Car Ferry crossing for you with Red Funnel or Wightlink. Unfortunately due to our continuing popularity, we no longer take one/two nighters as minimum stay is 3 nights as we now specialize in short breaks of 3/4 nights and a weeks holiday to ensure you see as much as the Island as you can. All of the above has transformed this property into a 4 Star plus with a coveted Silver Award for Service, Cleanliness and Hospitality and also a much sought after Breakfast Award for our full and varied Breakfast. We know and are realistic that after reading all our wonderful reviews, there are always some people out there who will come to try shoot us down, nick pick everything and will try our patience, leave rooms in a state, go against our guidelines and generally be unruly, so if you are one of them we ask that you go elsewhere as we only happy to accept friendly respectful guests here, who want to enjoy themselves with us. We may meet as strangers but all our guests leave as friends. A Home from Home but don't forget to bring your slippers! Kind Regards Keith & Christine ... more   less
