Swiss Cottage was built in 1866 and is an attractive, 4 Star, friendly traditional non smoking seaside accommodation, under the personal supervision of Keith & Christine Beckett, a home from home where guests meet as strangers and leave as friends.
Conveniently situated in a quiet road with its own off street parking, Swiss Cottage is within two minutes easy walk to all the amenities Shanklin has to offer and is an ideal base for seeing the entire Island. The beach, shops, cliff path and beach lift, are only a few minutes walk away. The picturesque Old Village, theatre, famous chine, bus service and railway station are easily reached on foot. Facilities are also available nearby if you require a base for a walking, cycling or activity holidays.
We cater for Half Board and B & B and guests can enjoy their meals in our light and airy dining room. Make your selection from the daily menu, which includes traditional home cooked food using fresh local produce (when available) or maybe you would just like to relax and have a drink from our well stocked bar. Breakfast times are at 8.30am and Dinner is at 6.30pm.
Swiss Cottage has a range of en-suite rooms on the Ground & First floor, including family suites, double and twin rooms. Internally all our rooms have recently undergone a modern refurbishment from decor to bedding and externally the property has had a bright new face lift. All rooms are well stocked with everything you might need from flat screen TV's, DVD & CD players, Sky and freeview, Wi Fi & internet access plus those little personal touches in the bathroom and bedrooms that we all take for granted. All this just to make your stay a more pleasant experience.
So come and enjoy our high standards of hospitality and service and relax in the comfortable and clean surroundings after a long days sightseeing.
