Nestled in the heart of Shanklin’s beautiful Rylstone Gardens stands Rylstone Manor Hotel.

It was originally built as a gentleman’s residence in 1863 and remained a private residence until 1923. The Manor is of Victorian proportion and incorporates a Cottage Orné style that reflects its unique charms both externally and within. The exquisitely decorated interior offers a warm and intimate atmosphere, where you are encouraged to just relax and enjoy its peaceful surroundings. Rylstone Gardens are situated on the cliff top overlooking the Shanklin and Sandown Bay area and are just a short walk from the beachfront, Shanklin Chine and the Old Village with its thatched shops and restaurants. Shanklin Town is within a 10-minute walk of the Hotel and offers a good mix of shops and services. Buses to all parts of the Island can be caught from the centre of the Town, and a train service is also offered to Lake, Sandown, Brading and Ryde. The Manor offers Free Private Parking for residents and is a good base for those wishing to explore the Island by car.
