The Cliff Hall is surrounded by a variety of restaurants/pubs and cafes and therefore offers bed and breakfast only except in September (between 29 August to the 4th September only). Where a half board option can be booked directly with us. Lunches available throughout the summer.
A level 1 mobility award indicates that the Cliff Hall has some bedrooms that have been graded officially, as suitable for older and less mobile guests. These are spacious rooms that can easily accommodate a wheelchair and have extra grab rails and removable seating in the showers.

A 4 minute walk to Shanklin High Street, leading to Shanklin Old Village. The hotel, built in Victorian times, has many original features, including ceilings copied from Osborne House.
