“In the seaside resort of Shanklin you’ll find the Clifton, situated on a clifftop with glorious views across the English Channel. Built in 1860, this imposing mansion hotel has a wide veranda that looks out to sea and a conservatory below for simple meals. The hotel has won several awards, both for its gardens and service.”Observer Magazine September 2021
