My wife & I stayed at the Richmond Bed & Breakfast over the Easter Bank Holiday. Located in Shanklin, run by a very friendly sincere couple. The room was exceptionally large and modern decor, breakfast was a pleasant and relaxing experience. Off street parking available on a first come first serve basis. I would definitely recommend contacting them if you...

Room 6 was good for us, clean and tidy with a nice modern bathroom. Breakfast was preordered with no issues and Mark & Kaz were the perfect hosts, friendly and attentive. We will definitely be returning!

A warm welcome from Mark and Kaz and a lovely stay at The Richmond b&b. Central location with plenty of things to see and do on your doorstep including the Shanklin Chine, the Crab Inn and walks to Godhill, Ventor and Sandown. Nice spacious room and a breakfast that sets you up for the day.

Lovely spotlessly clean room/house. Warm welcome by Mark, nice breakfast freshly cooked. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return. Mark was also very helpful and knowledgeable when recommending places to visit and roads to avoid. Walking distance to Shanklin old village. Can recommend Pavarotti's family run Italian restaurant and Fisherman's Cottage pub down at the beach.

We had a lovely stay - received a very friendly welcome from our hostess. Room had been newly decorated and was bright and clean, as was the en-suite bathroom. We were served a delicious full English breakfast in the morning. Personal service at a great rate.

I requested a 9pm check-in when booking. I was at fault for committing to booking without clarifying that this would be possible, but when they said no, I asked to cancel within 24 hours (still nearly 4 weeks from date of stay). They refused a request through booking.com to waive a £27 cancellation fee and when I emailed them politely...

We had a lovely 2 night stay at the Richmond b&b. The owners were friendly and knowledgable, the room was clean, tidy and newly decorated, and the breakfast was tasty. The location was also great- within walking distance of lots of restaurants, shops and cafes, as well as the beach. We would definitely recommend a stay!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The bed & breakfast is a Victorian building, approximately 150 years old. We are a small private husband & wife run B&B with 5 rooms, we hope we offer a level of comfort that will exceed your expectations and at highly contemplative prices too! We are blessed with a central location within easy walking distance of the beach and our old village where you'll find many restaurants and pubs, some overlooking the sea. Whether you are walking, driving, cycling or using the bus, we are a perfect base for exploring the many delights that the Island has to offer. ... more   less
