The Clifton hotel
The Clifton's privileged location on Shanklin's cliff top offers an amazing sea view and makes us an ideal retreat for those in search of peace and tranquillity. With just 15 rooms we are small, but perfectly formed, and have a 4-star VisitEngland rating.
Our Bistro with stunning views of Shanklin Bay, offers an intriguing menu and daily specials board with fresh fish. Or sit in the warm Isle of Wight sunshine in our beautiful garden and delight in the uninterrupted sea view. Refreshments such as cream tea with our homemade scones, or cakes, are served throughout the day.
The garden leads to the Coastal Walk between Shanklin and Sandown, part of the Isle of Wight Coastal Path. The Clifton is within easy reach by foot of the famous Shanklin Chine, the picturesque Old Village and the Esplanade with its renowned sandy beach.
