Swiss Cottage is a 4 Star Rated Isle of Wight Guest House located in the lovely coastal town of Shanklin. The attractive holiday accommodation was built in 1866 and offers friendly traditional seaside guest accommodation, under the personal supervision of owners Keith & Christine Beckett. Swiss Cottage is a home from home where guests meet as strangers and leave as friends.

You will find Swiss Cottage conveniently situated in the heart of Shanklin, on a quiet road with its own off-street parking on its forecourt. The Guest House is within two minutes easy walk to all the amenities Shanklin and the sandy beach and seafront has to offer and is an ideal base for exploring the whole of the Island.

Our guest accommodation caters for both half board and bed and breakfast, with guests enjoying their meals in our light and airy dining room. Make your selection from the daily menu, which includes traditional home cooked food using fresh local produce (when available) or maybe you would just like to relax and have a drink from our well stocked bar.

There is a range of en-suite rooms at Swiss Cottage, including family suites, double, twin and single occupancy to take care of everyone’s needs. So whether it’s B&B you want, a hearty evening meal or something special for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries or birthdays, we cater for everyone.

All our bedrooms have en-suite facilities, flat screen TV/DVD, hairdryer, trouser press, iron & ironing board, complimentary beverages and mini fridge. The rooms are continually being updated and modernised, from decoration to bedding, and externally the guest house has had a bright new facelift. All this just to make your stay a more pleasant experience. So come and enjoy our high standards of hospitality and service and relax in the comfortable and clean surroundings after a long day’s sightseeing in our guest accommodation.

All of the above has resulted in Visit England awarding us the Silver Award every year since 2009 for high quality of guest accommodation and customer service and are only one of the few proprietors who have received this accolade in Shanklin and even on the Isle of Wight. It has also been voted as one of the best Top 3 places to stay on the Island on Trip Advisor by our guests and we were awarded 12th place overall in the United Kingdom Awards in 2011 & 2012. This speaks for itself!

So book early to avoid disappointment and we look forward to meeting you soon but dont forget your slippers!
