About The Palmerston Hotel
The Palmerston Hotel is located in an ideal position in Shanklin, just a few minutes walk from the town centre, the Old Village, beach and Esplanade, and therefore ideally situated for families - which we encourage.
A family owned and run hotel, we offer a friendly and attentive service.
We are currently providing just bed and breakfast accommodation, but there are plenty of places for food and refreshment within walking distance. The bar shown in some of our photos is not open at present.
The Hotel has a mix of bedrooms, including single, double, twin, family. All the rooms have en-suite facilities, tea and coffee making equipment. We can therefore cater for the majority of requests.
Beautiful gardens with ample car and coach parking facilities.
The coastal resort of Shanklin is located at the south east corner of the Island at the southern most tip of Sandown Bay. The town is well served by the railway, which connects to the high speed ferry terminal at the top of Ryde Pier, allowing easy access to the mainland and London. There are also regular communications to the Islands principal towns via the buses, the depot for which is situated by Somerfield Supermarket in Landguard Road.
Shanklin has long been a location for family holidays, with a safe sandy beach and clear waters. The bay is sheltered from the prevailing wind by Dunnose Point, which is a stunning backdrop, with the tall cliffs of Luccombe and St. Boniface Downs beyond. Looking out to The English Channel across The Bay, views extend around to the White Cliffs of Culver and Bembridge Downs. By the beach there is pitch and putt, children’s amusements and car parking.
