Relaxing on the spacious decking, overlooking gardens and with uninterupted panoramic seaviews is a brilliant way to start and end your day. Staying at The Priory can offer you this, as well as being a short walk to Shanklin Old Village and its numerous restaurants and pubs. It's also an easy location from which to explore the whole Island.
