What an amazing find, more by luck than judgement. A lovely room and comfortable bed, well equipped with many little extras which ere a nice touch. 4* hotels that we have been in have not had the same level of comfort - so well done. Christine and Keith were very welcoming and it was nice that they chatted with guests after breakfast on a daily basis. The choice for breakfast was excellent and the cooked breakfasts were exceptional. It is situated in a quiet location close to the beach and the village, and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Had a five night stay at Swiss Cottage last week. We had rooms 8 and 9 made into the family suite. Rooms very spacious and clean, our daughter particularly liked having a room to herself where she could watch tv in the morning without disturbing us. Particularly liked the complimentary drinks in the mini fridge, were much appreciated in the warm evenings. Breakfasts were excellent with a variety of choices. Keith and Christine made us feel very welcome and if visiting the island again would try and book here first.

Room Tip: Although our rooms were facing the road, it was very quiet and were not disturbed by traffic

Just returned from my 14th visit to Swiss Cottage and,as always it was excellent in all
respects. It is situated in a quiet area of Shanklin, is easy to get to and is quite close to an excellent beach. A lift is available to take you down to the beach if you don't fancy the
walk down.
The owners of the hotel, Keith and Christine, are a nice friendly couple who will do
everything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the food is excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and there are 2 on the ground floor if you can't manage stairs.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Christine and Keith. We were made to feel extremely welcome and were overwhelmed by the standard of the rooms and the wonderful breakfasts. It was the best B&B we have ever stayed in.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled with friends
