The Avenue is a home from home. The owners Karen & Steve are so friendly and accommodating. Nothing too much trouble. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Freshly cooked breakfast was plentiful and tasty with lots of choice. Ideally located for the Seafront and old Shanklin but in a quiet location. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting the island...

Steve and Karen were very welcoming and couldn't have done more to make our holiday any better. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable.The breakfast was well cooked and Steve was the perfect waiter. Steve's recommendations on places of interest and where to eat were much appreciated and proved to be good.
