We booked this just because there was nothing available on the internet for one of the long weekends in may, and by the look of it was looking decent value for money. But it turned out to be a bad decision especially since we stayed there for 2 nights. The location is ok, and has limited parking etc, but its...

Nice friendly staff. Good breakfast, good choice, with lots to drink, tea/coffee, etc. Bedroom clean, but basic. Good shower with plenty of hot water. Stayed in a bedroom on the top floor, which was a little warm, due to its proximatey to the roof, I think?. T.V., was a bit 'retro', but I could get the latest news, which was...

OK, the hotel is a bit dated in its appearance, but you can forgive it that for being situated where it is. Pretty much equal distances to the beach, the town centre and the old village - all an easy walk - and all at a price that makes it very good value. Excellent, friendly, accommodating staff; clean; good breakfast......

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The location is great for all the amenities in Shanklin and the price made it very good value. The staff were all helpful and friendly. This only helped to make the stay all the better. I would have no hesitation in staying here again!

Cheap and cheerful hotel. Excellent location, only 5 minutes away from Shanklin town centre and the esplanade. The hotel itself is a little dated & some rooms are better than others (mine had only a bath no shower, TV was tiny etc) but the staff very nice and cleanliness was very good. Breakfast hit the spot. Evening meal was good...

Excellent base for our cricket tour over the Bank Holiday. Great Location. Food very reasonable. Very reasonably priced. Very friendly staff. Bottled Real Ale. Rooms a bit dated but why would you want to pay more. Just the ticket!

So I was on cricket tour and expected a very standard hotel for the cost I was paying, which was a very good price, BUT I was very pleasantly surprised, yes the room (18) size was small, yes the TV was small CRT with no remote, picture not brilliant, but the room was clean, bed was clean, breakfast and evening...

Stayed here as part of a cricket tour. For the money paid, I have no complaints at all. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the hotel had a quirky character that I found refreshing compared to most modern hotels. Would not hesitate to use again.

Over the first bank holiday in May I, along with 27 others, stayed at the Medehamstede Hotel for our annual cricket tour. This was our first tour to the Isle of Wight for many years and possibly the best one I've been on thanks in no small part to the hotel. It's fair to say I was a little apprehensive...

My husband and I Spent four nights five days at the Medhamstede we enjoyed everything about it. The location was superb for a walk into the old town of Shanklin or to the beach front. The staff were excellent, fun and friendly nothing was too much trouble. I must commend the chef on her food as it was all fresh...
