Bar Lounge

Whilst you are staying at The Swiss Cottage in Shanklin why not enjoy a relaxing drink during our warm summer evenings in our comfortable bar lounge or our decked patio area/furniture and watch the world go by. (Depending on Covid Restrictions)

We have a selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks available at our competitively priced honesty bar.

If you do not wish to go out why not stay in and relax & catch up on your television programs on our large Flat Screen TV, which also has Digital & Sky channels or use our Free WIFI service to catch up with those emails.

On the first floor, we have a dry lounge/quiet room so you can catch up on some reading, play cards or just to relax in.

After a good nights sleep, come down and read your daily papers/magazines in the Guests Lounge (please do not take them in our dining room) or catch up with the news and weather on the TV.
