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... More

The room was lovely, and we were given great advice on where to go and eat. We also rented bike through the hotel which were delivered to the front door. Breakfast was... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed at the the Royston for 4 days/3 nights and it was absolutely faultless. The room was big and the beds extremely comfy. The breakfasts were great and you can help yourself to as much cereal and fruit as you like. The owner was extremely friendly and very welcoming, I could not recommend this place enough to anyone.

A lovely warm welcome on arrival with advice if new to the area. Lovely & clean with comfortable beds. Lovely smiley hostess, who serves an amazing breakfast. Great location with easy access to the beach. It had everything we needed in our room, tea & coffee making facilities, towels, toiletries, tv, hairdryer and radio clock alarm. Highly recommend.

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
