The hotel is more like a resort with spacious dining area and bar. Room is simply decorated but spacious. Surrounding is quiet and easy to reach Shanklin's coast beach. Bus no.2 and 3 connect Newport and Shanklin, but travelers should be aware of the bus frequence after 18:00.
Breakfast starts a bit late from 0830 to 0930 everyday with friendly waitress service. I did not have it on my second morning since I left before 8 a.m. to catch bus back to Newport on Sunday morning. Radiator did not work so room temperature is a bit chilly at night.
Very good value and friendly service at this old-fashioned traditional hotel in a central but quiet location in Shanklin. I booked a single room but was fortunate to be allocated a comfortable double. Breakfast was modest but adequate; interestingly, kippers were available, and my friend tells me they were good. Check-in and check-out were very smooth.
Nice single rooms with on suite showers and toilets
Clean room with very basic facilities, but I wouldn't expect luxury at the price we paid. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff.
Hotel advertised having a restaurant for evening meals; even had menus on the tables, but when we asked to book a meal for the Saturday night, we were told they were not serving food. This was a great shame as we had nowhere else to go (given the rotten weather that weekend, and that we were extremely tired and didn't want to look for an alternative restaurant).
Location was close to central high street and station and with in walking distance to the coast.
When you stay at Medehamstede Hotel in Shanklin, you'll be near the beach, within a 10-minute walk of Shanklin Theatre and Shanklin Beach. Free self parking is available onsite.
