Positive Reviews

Staff provide a helpful service.

Guests can't praise the staff highly enough - this small, family-run hotel seems to have its service spot-on. Whether you need information about the area, or you care about cleanliness, everything will be done to give you the best stay possible.

Attractive and convenient location.

Set just outside the centre of Shanklin on a leafy avenue, Somerton Lodge offers a pleasant setting where guests can relax, while being close to local amenities. It also makes a good base for exploring the island.

Full cooked breakfast to start the day.

There's nothing quite like a good cooked breakfast to start the day right, and guests seem to like what's on offer at Somerton Lodge. Plus, there's a full veggie option, so no-one has to miss out.

Negative Reviews

Not a family-friendly hotel.

If you're searching for a child-free getaway, Somerton Lodge is heaven, since it's adults-only, but it means that families with under-14s in tow will have to find somewhere else to stay.

A lick of paint here and there is needed.

While most guests comment on the general attractiveness and good ambiance of the hotel, some of the rooms are showing a bit of wear and tear. A little bit of cosmetic updating wouldn't go amiss to freshen the place up.

Some find the beds uncomfy.

While many guests report a comfortable night's sleep, some report that the beds are not quite up to the mark - it seems that the mattresses and pillows aren't to everyone's taste, though it's very subjective.
