Alan and Sue were wonderfully welcoming and were at pains to make us welcome and comfortable, and they succeeded. Lovely stay.
The friendly owners. The great breakfasts. The cleanliness.
The location, but that can't be changed.
The sea view was amazing on top floor. The cooked breakfast is delicious and the owners were helpful with advice and information. The place is lovely and clean. Location is on excellent bus route to all parts of the island.
Eating places are quite a distance from this place so you need to prepare to walk to places for about 15 minutes each way. The kettle set was a bit dated and could do with a bit more tea varieties?
Nothing was too much trouble. Very friendly, very comfortable and the breakfast was very,very good.
Guest house was exceptionally clean. Sue & Alan very friendly & informative of the area. Paid extra for seaview & wasn't disappointed.
Couldn't sleep with creaking floorboards from upstairs & people walking pass the room. Could hear conversations from the room next door & upstairs. Heard the extractor fan from the next room until 1am. Didn't like having to go up a step to the bathroom & then another step to the toilet. Felt this could be dangerous during the night.
Having an ocean view was fabulous and being so close to wonderful walks around the area. Also the easy access to buses that can take you to highlights on the island. Clean rooms and friendly owners that went out of their way to make us comfortable.
The squeaky bathroom doors.
The location of the guesthouse is very good, the view from the window and garden is very beautiful as well. Hosts are trying their best to please the guests.
As this is small guesthouse is lacks flexibility. Breakfast stops early, room service is fixed from 10:00-12:00. Wi-fi is poor. I would recommend this hotel to mature people not youngsters for sure.
We stayed for the week to celebrate our 50th wedding Anniversary as we had our Honeymoon on the Isle of Wight, and we were not disappointed.We visited lots of places on the island,as we have over the years.
Due to mobility difficulties we need to use the car and are unable to walk far or use public transport therefore are reliant on the car. Unfortunately the roads were often in a poor state of repair which made travel very uncomfortable.
Very pleasant welcome. Good breakfast and good value for monet
Room was a bit small and couldn't get wifi in the room. Also TV in the room and the guests lounge are in completely the wrong place and not moveable.
Very friendly and hospitable hosts... Nice view and very relaxing ambiance :) good value for money
the wifi didnt work while we were there.
It was nice to have the garden so as the weather was so nice you didn't have to go and sit in your room.
Being told we were putting them out when we asked for breakfast a bit earlier, 8am instead of the 8.30 to 9 15 am on the day we were leaving to catch the ferry.
The Miclaran is in walking distance of both Shanklin and Sandown. We were well looked after, provided with bottles of chilled water for days out and even treated to a bottle of wine in our room for booking a 7 day stay. The rooms were clean and bright with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Breakfast was also good.
To be nit-picky, we found that doors in our room tended to rattle in the wind when we left the windows open and the ceiling was rather low above the toilet. The WIFI was a little patchy in our room but still better than many hotels I've stayed in. None of these were of any real issue, nor did they have any real impact on our stay.
Within easy walking distance from both Sandown and Shanklin along the Esplanade.
The owners r very friendly and very helpful we had a very enjoyable stay and would tell friends and family what a great place it is
The wifi did not work very well
This was my 2nd visit to the Miclaran since Alan and Sue took over. I didn't think they could improve on my first visit but they did.
The location is excellent although it's a trek along the coastal path to Sandown or, less so, Shanklin. The breakfast offer was very good!
The en-suite in our room (6) was pokey and the shower too small and outdated. The towels were too small (not bath sized!). It was a warm and sunny period and the room was stifling and impossible to get cool!
The view from our bedroom window was magnificent. Our hosts were attentive and friendly. The hotel is on a cliff top midway between Sandown & Shanklin. It's a 10 minute walk down steps to the promenade and a 15-20 minute walk in either direction to Sandown or Shanklin. Limited eating out opportunities close by so we made a 20-minute walk each way to either town's main tourist area. Good for walking up an appetite!
Everything met or exceeded our expectations so nothing to dislike.
i liked everything, the staff were very helpful, the food the comfort and the location, i would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
very friendly &comfort
thought breakfast slot a bit tight8.30 till 9.00 should be bit longer for holidaymakers
Sue and Alan are excellent hosts. Nothing was to much trouble. The views from the rooms and garden are fantastic, you couldn't get better. The breakfast was very good and the whole house was very clean.
This Guest House is ideally located for easy walking access along the coastal path to Shanklin and Sandown. Rooms offer lovely views over the channel and are very clean and comfortable. There is a garden to the rear of the property with access to the coastal path. The breakfast is Devine and Sue and Alan are very welcoming and helpful during your stay. This was our 2nd visit in 2 years and we will be back next year. Highly recommended.
Nothing to dislike
Very friendly welcome. Good breakfast and all very fresh and clean. Will recommend to others
Stunning views from room. Location great for walk to Shanklin or Sandown along coastal path even for more mature! Great breakfast.
Very low water pressure so shower was a dribble. Could hear everything from room next door, not just talking, but also when they visited the toilet and shower!
the atitude of the staffs
