The Birkdale is a Superb Guest House.
We had a fantastic three night stay thanks to Lesley, Colin and Sarah. From the welcoming chat, over a cup of coffee, Lesley and Colin were excellent and friendly hosts who provided everything that we could wish for to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We particularly enjoyed the nice touches such as Lesley’s homemade yoghurt at breakfast and her homemade biscuits, provided in the room, which were very tasty. The Guest House is spotlessly clean and well maintained and we had no COVID concerns. Rooms can be serviced daily on request but cleaning materials are also provided in the wardrobe. The breakfasts, which are pre-ordered the night before from an extensive menu, are very generous, delicious, cooked to perfection and served with a welcoming smile by Sarah. The breakfasts set us up for the whole day! We stayed in the first floor four poster bedroom which is very comfortable and spacious with a compact shower room. Additional comforts are a fan, hair dryer and small fridge for the storage of fresh milk and cold water. Two bottles of Spring Water are provided in the fridge which can be refilled from the complimentary water cooler in the hallway. There is one parking space available for each room and the Birkdale’s location is only a few minutes’ walk from Shanklin Old Village with its numerous attractions, shops, restaurants and pubs. We would thoroughly recommend the Birkdale and would have no hesitation in booking again the next time we visit the Isle of Wight.

Friendly owners, great breakfast, a clean, newly decorated and comfortable room with USB charging ports and good wi-fi. The location is good, close to restaurants and the village. We enjoyed our stay and I recommend it.

Fabulous great value guest house
We stayed for 4 nights in the Superior King with four-poster bed and we were not disappointed. Lesley and Colin were warm, friendly hosts and the room was large, airy and very clean. The shower room was compact but perfectly suitable and the breakfast choices were generous and beautifully cooked. All in all we were so pleased we stayed at the Birkdale and if (when) we return to Shanklin we will have no hesitation in booking at the Birkdale again.
