About this property

A rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented 14 en-suite bedroom hotel and café with separate owners accommodation, perfectly positioned on Shanklin's clifftop providing spectacular sea views.

Located on Queens Road, The Clifton is perfectly positioned on the clifftop, providing spectacular sea views across Small Hope Beach and Sandown Bay.

Shanklin, a town to the southeast of the Island, is one of the main holiday destinations on the Island. There are extensive sandy beaches nearby with a lovely coastal walk from Shanklin to the town of Sandown and beyond.

The main town of Shanklin is just a short walk from the hotel, comprising a range of amenities from small boutique stores, larger retailers, restaurants, cafes, salons and much more.

Built in 1860, The Clifton retains much of the original features you would expect from a Victorian establishment, whilst being tastefully upgraded and modernised over the years. There are 14 en-suite bedrooms with a separate 2-bedroom owners’ accommodation.

The current owners have occupied the property for 13 years and are selling due to retirement.

The hotel is licensed and trades from March through to October on a bed & breakfast basis. They also open to the public throughout the day, serving café style food, freshly baked goods and a range of beverages.
