A most wonderful hotel in a beautiful setting. Carol and Mike really know how to look after their guests, they are so friendly and very helpful with lots of advice on the local area. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was at the back overlooking a natural garden with many trees and red squirrels often chasing each other around the tree trunks. The house is set in spectacular gardens full of magnificent colour and a short walk takes you to stunning views over Shanklin. Highly recommended!
Our first time at Rylstone Manor but it won’t be the last. The small hotel is set in very pleasant gardens where, generally, visitors come to walk or sit quietly - one afternoon there was a brass band practice in the old hall nearby, which to my ears was a happy addition to the atmosphere. Like so many similar hotels this one is run by very committed, experienced hosts doing everything to make one’s stay as agreeable as possible. Despite the poor weather we had a happy 3 nights in the superior double facing the Gardens and coast. Nice large room, more than adequate from every perspective. Breakfast, by advanced order each evening on a comprehensive tick sheet, was delightful in a lovely large room. Why only 4/5? Realistically this is an older building which must take a great deal of tlc. That accepted, you won’t find many places to beat its value. Thank You for a lovely visit - will see you again.…
Visited this hotel over the weekend, if you’re looking for a traditional family run hotel with lovely hosts, this is the one. Lovely quiet location, breakfast to die for, lovely rooms with period features. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel when visiting IOW
We had a few days staying here this week when we were at last allowed to stay in hotels. We were welcomed by the hosts and owners of this beautiful small hotel set in parkland just above Shanklin Chine. Our bedroom was spacious and the bed large and super comfy.The windows overlooked the garden and spectacular trees and we were treated to the red squirrels frolicking in the branches. Everywhere was very clean and Covid safe the breakfast ordered the night before and made fresh.The owners couldn’t have been more a without being intrusive. Really can’t fault this hotel and it’s welcoming atmosphere. However as things open up we struggled to get reservations for dinner in the recommended restaurants I would suggest booking before you go.
We booked a last minute weekend away with 2 friends and could not of found a lovelier place for a getaway. We had the hotel to ourselves and the owners could not do enough to make us welcome. The breakfasts were superb in a lovely setting and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Overall we would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Thank you once again
