Shanklin Esplanade is a bustling resort and The Steamer Inn takes pride of place right in the heart of it all. Whether you are looking for a night, a weekend or more The Steamer Inn is perfect for families and couples as well as those travelling alone or visiting the Island on business. Offering five comfortable en-suite rooms, guests can enjoy a hearty complimentary full English breakfast as part of their stay plus free WIFI and the option of a private balcony overlooking the sea.
