'I would say that this hotel is very nice, clean, and homely. My family enjoyed our 5 nights stay in Braemar Hotel. The breakfast is a good portion and you can have both cereals and full english breakfast at the same time. The hotel is in a good location very accessible to shops and bus stop. This hotel is 10 mins walk to the Shanklin Beach. The service is excellent'

'The Braemar is a great family fun traditional b+b,the owners was very friendly and i was suprised to find that my room had a very large balcony outside to sit on instead of just being in my bedroom, the breakfast you picked off a mini menu the day before so you got exactly what you wanted,i had tea, toast and a full English and it was delicious,a short walk to the shops even closer to a couple of pubs that do great meals Next time that im in Shanklin i will be sure to rebook as it was good value for money'

Lovely Braemar Hotel
5 stars 5

'The hotel is a small charming hotel on a quiet road in a nice part of Shanklin. The room was modestly furnished but very good I coild not fault the cleanlines and neatness of my room. The owners are very nice with a warm welcome and clear information. The breakfast was great I had the kippers good really lovely but the other food passing by looked great especially the full English although the haddock and poached egg looked really great to. If I am back in Shanklin again I will definately be staying at that hotel again. Thanks for a lovely stay.'

'I have always loved the IOW especially Shanklin. \"Braemar\" was a very enjoyable stop-over for 1 night last June(2015) initially for a Raymond Froggatt concert (Shanklin Theatre),that got cancelled. However we decided to come to the Island anyway as the weather was good and also stayed the extra daytime. Braemar is a traditional style IOW Guest House/Hotel,just the kind I like. Especially at the seaside. I don\'t myself go (neither does the missus) for posh places. I like genuine character and Braemar offers that. Plus the other sort of character(s) ... really nice people running it. I talked at length to Kelly (plenty in common)and we met his wife Mary the following morning, where they served us a fine breakfast. Back in 1969 I was in Shanklin when Georgie Fame charted with \"Peacful\". And Braemar certainly is. I lapped that up ... plus a nice meal & a couple pints of real ale at the ever popular Crab Inn,right on the doorstep,in the timeless & chocolate-box picturesque Old Village. Chris.'

As I say food was very good, Owners of hotel was very good and helpful to all, and well situated for old village and for walkers not too far from good walks and the beach.'

The room was big enough and with adequate facillities for our stay. It over looked the carpark which was important to us as we had travelled by motorbike. The owners were understanding as they were bikers themselves at some time. The couple made us feel very welcome and their hospitality was shared amongst the other guests. The breakfast was cooked to our liking and made upon our arrival at the breakfast room (not kept warm under heaters). The location of the hotel is good as eateries and pubs are close by. We wolud definitely reccommend this hotel and hope to go back in the future.'
