Comfortable and relaxed with our dogs. -
We really felt welcomed by all staff and guests. Our room was spacious and clean and comfortable plenty of room for our 2 dogs and with a seaview . Very good situation and easy access to coastal and beach walks with the dogs. We had booked breakfast which were excellent with plenty of choice and our own selections happily catered for . We had several evening mealsthere because of the quality of the food and the ease ofhaving our dogs with us. We found the whole stay veryrelaxing and comfortable. Thank you especially to Gina and Kim.

The hotel is ideally placed between the town an beach front area and is close to both lift and stairs for beach access. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The room was adequate and clean. Meals at the hotel were very reasonable. We had a celebratory meal with family that was catered for perfectly. Dogs are welcome so the hotel pick up valuable footfall from passing walkers. The hotel was spot on and would return here without hesitation.

The rooms on the front of hotel have balconies over looking the sea and are lovely (we have already booked into one of these for next year). Food and drinks great and reasonably priced, all served with a smile and a chat in the lovely bar over looking the gorgeous views over shanklin. Overall great stay and looking forward to coming back. Thanks to all for being so kind to us during our stay. Claire :-)

Lovely Location -
Pros:1) Very nice &lovely location. Beach is just two minutes via stairs.2) Very friendly staff.3) Very clean rooms.4) Bunk bed for kids (even though I realised that my kids a bit older for the bunk beds being early teenagers, so not suitsable if you have a 12 / 14 years old kids).5) High street is less than 5 minutes walk with all amenities (restaurants/take-away/shops).Cons:1) Short of parking, had to park away one night.2) TV was a bit too small in our room.3) WiFi was too slow (Couldn't get decent 3G/4G service in the room either, however all worked fine in bar/lobby).Overall, it was a pleasant stay, food was good. Hotel has a beer garden, and a terrace, with sea view. I'd recommend staying in this hotel.

Nothing was too much trouble.I'd recently stayed in a dog friendly hotel in the Lake District and had a totally different experience that left me worried about staying in another hotel with the pups....But the Harrow Lodge Hotel has restored my faith.Hotel in a great location. Quiet but close enough the a few lovely sea front restaurants and bars.Thanks Gina and staff. We'll be back. :-)

Great Family room -
We booked the family room (room #23)in the lower floor (1 double, 1 single and 2 bunks). Nice and neat - opposite the breakfast room. Stairs a bit tricky for young children but we all managed. Overall good value for family. Breakfast was great and staff were very helpful and welcoming. It was next to the Pool table so could be noisy at times but we were lucky that nobody used it as it was the end of the school holidays! Free wifi is a great feature and dinner being served until 7pm was definitely handy.

We spent Easter weekend at the Harrow Lodge Hotel with our two dogs. The hotel was immaculate, the staff were friendly, and we would definitely stay there again. We had a balcony with a sea view, and the setting of the hotel on the cliff above Shanklin beach was just perfect.It was possibly to bring the dogs into the bar, where food is served from lunch until 7pm. The food was incredible. We had a couple of wonderful meals in the bar, that were very reasonably priced.We loved our time in the hotel, and would definitely go back there again.

Our room was very clean, comfy and we were happy with it. 4 of us had an evening meal there on Saturday night which was fine and breakfast Sunday morning had lots of choices for juices, cereal and toast, aswell as the cooked breakfast and was of a good quality. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and on Sunday morning the young lad/waiter in the Dining Room was very polite.

Friendly, comfortable seafronthotel with great home cooked food -
I spent just 1 night with my mother in a twin room at Harrow Lodge on route to a family funeral. We both enjoyed our stay here. the star were very friendly, helpful and efficient. the room, although small, was clean and pleasantly decorated in modern tones. The bar area is a joy. A modern, light, room with peanuts full sea vies and an open terrace with a downstairs terrace as well. Breakfast was tasty and freshly cooked and we had free parking. please be aware that the stairs into the downstairs dining room are steep and the stairs to the upstairs rooms are also steep. However, there are ground floor rooms available.The hotel is dog friendly which is a bonus and I noticed there were several restaurants nearby also proclaiming dog friendly signs. The hotel is located 1 minute from the cliff lift, a boon if travelling with someone with mobility problems. In addition, the Shanklin chine coastal path is just outside the hotel. I would love to return and explore that route! So in summary, a small but beautifully formed hotel.Neither luxurious nor spartan, but just right for a short break!

Isle of Wight Break -
I would've loved to give this hotel 5 stars, but I've based my rating on overall experience.The staff are lovely and very friendly. Breakfast was great and the portions were very generous. They really looked after us. I also loved the personal touch of setting up a high chair at the breakfast table in the morning before we came down.Location is great and literally a few minutes walk from the beach.The View from the balcony at the bar is lovely as well. We were there at low season so parking was easy.The let down for us was the room. It was spacious for what we needed, but it was quite dark during the day and we had to put the light on most of the time.Regulating the hot water when taking a shower was a challenge, as the water kept going hot and then cold intermittently. if you woke up early before the other visitors you were alright.Wifi was another main issue for us. We had hardly any coverage in our room, but as soon as you stepped out the door it was fine.All that said, we would still love to go back there again,but we'd definitely opt for a different room.

What a week! -
This is the 1st time that we had been to the isle of wight as a couple, and I believe that we could not have found a better, value for money Hotel than the Harrow Lodge. We read the reviews prior to travel and decided to give it a shot. We are so pleased that we did! the reviews said it was generally above the two star rating it was awarded and how right they were! We were accommodated in room 12 and we found it to be more than what we expected. There was an extensive range ofbreakfasts and was totally unlimited( 3 bowls of frosties, followed by Hash Browns, Bacon, Eggs and sausages), sort of sets you up for the day. If you need a no nonsense, cheerful place to stay while on the isle of wight, this has to be it! Just leave room for when we want to go again!!!

Friendly Stay -
We stayed here on the weekend of 25/04/14 in a family room shared with our two young grandsons. The room was clean and well kept and our grandsons loved the bunk beds experience. The staff were unobtrusive but friendly and available when required. The prices charged at the bar were very reasonable and the breakfast was excellent. All in all the hotel made for a pleasant stay and if we should return again we would have no hesitation in choosing Harrow Lodge again. Thank you.

Very pleased. -
As a family we have been coming to the Isle of Wight for many years and always have a great time. We always stay in a different area so we can enjoy different qualities that the island has to offer. This time we stayed at The Harrow Lodge and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and hotel in general. Nice polite and friendly staff and the breakfast was great too. We will definately be back for another visit.

Our enjoyable visit -
I am writing to thank you on behalf of my wife and myself along with a relative who stayed with you for 3 nights on our recent visit to the Isle of Wight, we found all members of staff very friendly and helpful, rooms clean and very comfortable and breakfasts plentiful and enjoyable. The Hotel was situated with a lovely view of Shanklin beach and close to the lift down to the beach, public transport is a short walk away to get around the island, will return many thanks Mr &Mrs Forder and Mr Knowles

This hotel is in a great location with sea views and parking, which is a bonus. Very clean. Staff friendly.My only negitive comment is there was only one top of the chest of drawers to put things on as the other one had the tea things on. The tv was small. But nothing that was a great problem. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would defiantly go back. Thank you
