The Isle of Wight is often described as the ‘Garden Isle’ or ‘England in Miniature’, for no other part of Britain contains such a variety of scenery.  The peaceful beauty, delightful villages, coastal walks, sandy beaches and mild climate make the island a holiday paradise.  The traditional Ocean View Hotel in Shanklin commands superb views over Sandown Bay and is just a short walk from the Old Village.  All bedrooms are en-suite with TV and tea facilities, there are steps to some rooms.  There are spacious lounges with extensive sea views, a lift to all floors, nightly entertainment in the ballroom, games room and heated indoor pool.  Half board accommodation.
