What people are saying about Fernbank Hotel


Cozy guesthouse- Rating 5/5

Liz and Graham were so welcoming of us onto the Island and their lovely guesthouse. The location is great; in a small village close to the seaside with plenty of opportunities for coastal walks/runs and great restaurants. The breakfast was amazing - high quality and so generous! We would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you for your hospitality!

Nice relaxing stay - Rating 4/5

The accommodation was as advertised and in a good location for the beach and Shanklin Old town.We had never had Continental Breakfast delivered to our room before and Diane who both delivered the breakfast and serviced our room was very helpful especially as we needed an early start the day we left and she delivered our breakfast the day before and she also organised decaf coffee for our room.On balance we probably prefer to eat breakfast in a dining room with a greater choice of food, but this was still good and good value for money.The room was very clean, had a fridge and the table was nicely set. The bed was reasonably comfortable and we had a nice relaxing few days there.My only criticisms would be there was no outside space available to guests and no guest lounge.

Lovely B&B - Rating 5/5

Just back from a few days staying at Fernbank and what a lovely B&B. Very clean, daily serviced, nice breakfast and peaceful. Very close to old Shanklin for evening meals if you didn’t want to drive. Would definitely recommend.

Quiet and comfortable- Rating 5/5

We enjoyed our stay at the Fernbank and was a great base to strike out and explore the Island from. Beds were comfy and room was clean. Felt like we were the only guests there for first two nights. Continental breakfast suited us (nice jam!) and complimentary biscuits and fruit a nice touch. One recommendation would be robes so that people can cover up when answering door for breakfast. Shower was powerful and decent bathroom! Great overall experience.


Thank you for your kind words! We aim to keep Fernbank quiet and relaxing. Hopefully you will both visit again.

Perfection!- Rating 5/5

My husband and I spent five nights at Fernbank, and we, really, didn’t want to come home so soon! We enjoyed everything about our stay. The room was immaculate and cleaned daily and had everything to make us comfortable - the box of biscuits was a great touch! We thoroughly enjoyed our continental breakfast, which was served, daily, to our room; the croissants were incredible! There was plenty of choice, although we choose a similar breakfast each day, it being exactly to our taste. The self-check in worked very smoothly and parking was good. We have, already, booked for next year. Thank you, Liz and Graham, for making our stay memorable.

Excellent stay - Rating 5/5

We first visited the Fernbank 13 years ago for my brother's "Star Wars" wedding.This time round. Although the hotel has changed somewhat since our last trip. We had an excellent stay and have no complaints. And will probably stay again in the future.
