We provide quality bed and breakfast rooms as well as a half board option which includes traditional home cooked food for guests wanting to enjoy their evening meal in our dining room.
Swiss Cottage has been continually voted as one of the top two Hotels in Shanklin, as well as one of the best places to stay in the whole of the Isle of Wight by Trip Advisor reviewers for the past 5 years.
We have been voted by Trip Advisor themselves at the Annual Awards, 12th Best in the United Kingdom in 2011/12 for Family Friendly & voted 10th Best in the UK for 2013/14 in their Small/Budget Hotel category.
We were, in August 2014, awarded The Green Leaders Gold Level Award for being Environmentally Friendly re: Towel & Linen Changes, Lighting & Recycling procedures, so we would like to Thank all of our guests who have abided by our simple guidelines to help us achieve this Award.
This is in addition to our Green Tourism Gold we won a few years ago.
We are also proud to have the prestigious Silver Award from Visit England for High Quality of our Accommodation and Service since 2010 and also our well earned The Breakfast Award in 2014.
This year we have been recognised by Visit England in their Best B&B/Guest Accommodation category in the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence 2014 and with very stiff competition we won the award for Highly Commended.
The holiday accommodation at Swiss Cottage has the high standards of a Hotel, but with the friendly, personal touch of a family-run B&B run by Keith & Christine Beckett.
The Swiss Cottage guest house is a Victorian building on a quiet street with its own off street parking in the heart of Shanklin, close to all the local amenities and is a short stroll away from our glorious Beach & Esplanade.
We have given the property a tasteful modern face lift to provide superb en-suite bedrooms with flat screened digital TV/DVD, beverage tray, fan, mini fridge and hairdryer and all the attention to detail that will make your stay really special & memorable.
Due to our rise in popularity and demand we no longer accept one or two nighters, our minimum stay is 3 nights as we specialize in short breaks and weekly holidays.
We cater for families with Children aged 10 - 15 years, sorry no children under the age of 10 years.
Please take time to look at our other pages for further information on our website before you contact us to book your holiday break.
Swiss Cottage as been described as A home from home where guests meet as strangers and leave as friends.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
