The Melbourne-Ardenlea is on a quiet road only 5 minutes walk from the beach and Shanklin old thatched village. It has an indoor swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. The zoo at Sandown is a 10 minute drive away, while the beautiful Osborne House, which was once Queen Victoria’s favourite country home, is just 11 miles from the hotel. The Isle of Wight has 500 miles of footpaths, bridle ways and cycle routes. Some of the bedrooms at The Melbourne-Ardenlea Hotel have sea views and they all come with an en suite bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities.
