The Grange is a gorgeous Georgian country house hotel with comfortable 4-star guest accommodation listed in the AA's Best British B&B Guide. The Grange is in the Old Village of Shanklin on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Nestled in greenery, it is very secluded. Yet it's only moments from the thatched pubs and cosy tearooms, the local train station, shops and restaurants and, best of all, the long sandy beaches. Light and spacious, high-ceilinged dining room leads into the bar area with access to an outdoor terrace for cooler evenings spent sitting out under the stars. Beyond, into the garden you can take your morning coffee and relax amidst the sound of birdsong. There are two chalets outside, one of which has a sauna for guest use and a room set aside for massage treatments, and the other is designated as the yoga and movement room.You will be accommodated in one of our 15 double or twin bedrooms, all recently refurbished to a high standard, with most enjoying views of the sea or downs. You can book a double room, a twin-bedded room or single occupancy of a double room for which there is a supplement per night of £25. Wireless connection to the internet is available free of charge.We provide a sumptuous breakfast to set you up for the day ahead. Breakfasts are usually between 8am and 10am. We use the freshest ingredients, locally produced where possible. Breakfast includes fresh fruit salads, natural yoghurts, a variety of cheeses, freshly baked croissants and, of course, hot traditional breakfasts. Vegetarians are always catered for.
