"Great Little Hotel!"
I arrived on the Wednesday and after an excellent lunch, I explored Shanklin Chine, my main reason for visiting the village. Dinner was excellent, and I left for home the following morning after a very good breakfast. Read less
Likes:
The hotel is immaculate, as was my room, despite it being towards the end of the season. The staff were friendly, helpful and cheerful. The wifi signal in my room was strong, weak in the bar/lounge.
Dislikes:
My room lacked a desk where I could sit and write. If not for that, I'd be visiting it regularly in the future for longer breaks.

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.

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 their holiday.
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.
