An impressive property originally built as a gentleman's residence in 1863. The property sits within Rylstone Gardens, making its position a peaceful and idyllic setting for its occupants. The beautiful building was designed to impress and was built with Georgian, Gothic and Tudor influences which can be identified both externally and throughout the property itself. The manor house was used as a private residence until 1923 when it became a hotel. The owners took over the ownership some 14 years ago and have created luxurious rooms within this award winning boutique hotel. There is private owner's accommodation that comprises of a large sitting room and double bedroom which benefits from its own en-suite shower room. The ground floor hotel area comprises of a beautiful drawing room which has attractive dual aspect gothic style windows that overlook the pretty gardens which surround the home. There is a large fireplace which is a superb feature of this comfortable and spacious room, allowing the guests a fantastic room to enjoy. The dining room sits to the rear of the building, and is again dual aspect with double doors that lead out to the enclosed private gardens that border the popular and impressive Shanklin Chine walk, which is home to an abundance of natural wildlife. This room also provides original panelled window shutters which have been preserved concealing the gothic style windows. Adjacent to this is a lovely bar area, which has a fantastic window seat looking out over the garden and is a cosy area to entertain your guests. The commercial kitchen and laundry sit screened by a large door which leads to the private owner's accommodation and both rooms are superbly equipped for the everyday chores of a busy hotel. The nine boutique rooms are made up of four superior rooms and five standard deluxe rooms, each one offering a different style and ambiance to its guests. The accommodation throughout has been beautifully decorated and thought out, and all rooms have their own modern en-suite facilities. Each room provides a different outlook over the surrounding park, with its abundance of mature trees and mature shrubs and some have a sea glimpse out over the English Channel.
