Likes:
Very pleasant stay with wonderful weather. This Hotel has a very good position on the seafront at Shanklin. Parking outside was easy and free as we have a disability pass.
Dislikes:
Not a big problem but we could hear nasty thumping music from the hotel next door. We closed our windows which helped a little but it was warm and it would have been nicer to leave the windows open.

Likes:
Barstaff good, warm welcome, room okay, location great
Dislikes:
Bed was too hard, breakfast below standard with cold egg!
Response from The Aqua:
A very frustrating review. A cold egg at breakfast is not a general problem and could so easily be rectified by mentioning it to the breakfast staff. We discussed the Hot tap issuue with Chamber staff and found no issue with the bath tap. I also inspected the room and feel more than happy with our level of cleanliness. We are sorry if this guest was disturbed by another but again were not made aware at the time.

"I wouldn't stay here again"
Good in some areas but let down by basic issues, such as bathroom layout, parking, breakfast quantity and non-replenishment of tea/coffee, tissues and bathroom amenities. A particular issue was the frequently changing water temperature in the shower, which could have serious safety implications in relation to scalding. Overall, poor value for money and we would not stay here again. Read less
Likes:
Good location on the sea front. Free wi-fi was helpful, although mobile phone signal was intermittent.
Dislikes:
Bathroom facilities were poor;layout was ridiculous.No free on-site parking,this is expected of a hotel.Poor replenishment of eg.tea/coffee,tissues etc.One hour window for breakfast too restrictive.

The Aqua is a beautifully appointed family run Guest Accommodation with a reputation for service and quality. Superbly situated in the Isle of Wight’s very popular resort of Shanklin, it offers the ideal location for a beachside holiday. The Aqua also provides a central base for the many fine coastal walks that are available in the area, yet remains conveniently close to the town which is just a 10 minute walk away via the Cliff Lift.

In addition to being in a lovely seaside location The Aqua also offers the ideal venue for holiday makers, Isle of Wight ramblers and local folk for Morning Coffee, Snack Lunches and Afternoon Teas. Its popularity is not just due to the excellent food and drinks available. Nothing could be more comforting than just relaxing under the many sun umbrellas and taking in the delightful vista of Shanklin Bay and the open sea, from the Continental style patios and decks fronting The Aqua.

Accommodation is offered in a selection of 21 bedrooms all furnished and decorated in delightful style and ranging in size from singles to family rooms. All bedrooms are No Smoking, have En-suite facilities and feature Double Glazed Windows, Central Heating, Colour TV, Radio/Alarm, Baby Listening, Hairdryers and Hospitality Trays. A number of these rooms have sea views and some also have a balcony overlooking the Beach.

All meals are taken in our modern Restaurant, The Brasserie, which can accommodate up to 60 guests. It is bright and airy, features cooling ceiling fans and has wide aspect windows offering diners an excellent view of Shanklin Bay and Seafront.

Occupying the remainder of the ground floor is a separate Bar and Entertainment lounge. It has a small Dance Floor, and is comfortably furnished to provide the perfect setting for our guests to relax with a drink and enjoy the holiday season entertainment programme.
Environmental Statement
At The Aqua we understand the need to limit our use of natural resources and request that Guests select towels to be changed on a daily basis rather than just replacing all towels from their room and perhaps laundering them un-necessarily.
