The Kenbury

B&B / Hotels

Welcome to The Kenbury, a family run bed and breakfast, set in a character building within its own grounds. We're in a quiet area of Shanklin, but we're close to many local amenities, just a 5 minute walk from the cliff top, the train station and the town of Shanklin. We offer a range of comfortable double and twin rooms, and also a family suite. We have a lounge and a small garden for guests to relax in after the day's activities.


The Kenbury offers a wide choice for breakfast, which is included in the price. Guests can help themselves from the buffet table to a selection of cereals, yoghurts, croissants and fresh fruit salad. And of course we also offer a traditional full English breakfast and other hot options including vegetarian breakfast, poached or scrambled eggs and kippers.

Breakfast is served from 08.15-09.30.

Check-in time is from 14.00 until 21.30 although it is possible to have a later/earlier check-in time by prior arrangement.  Check-out time is 10.30.  We can also store your luggage for you to allow you to make the most of your day after you have checked out.


We have 11 non smoking rooms(including e-cigarettes) altogether, all are en-suite and have a small fridge. As The Kenbury is an old Victorian building, no two rooms are quite the same. Our premier and superior rooms both have a seating area and a king-size bed, some rooms can be double or twin, some have a view of the garden and some are on the ground floor. The en-suite bathrooms have either a bath with a shower over, or a walk-in shower cubicle. We also have a family suite which has an en-suite bathroom and a separate (adjoining) twin room for the children which can only be accessed via the door in the adult room for added security.

All rooms have flat-screen digital TV's, hairdryers, drink making facilities, bottled water, fridge, biscuits, tissues, large towels and high quality toiletries.


Our lounge provides a comfortable area in which guests can relax, with plenty of reading material, games and puzzles, and a large digital TV.  We have lots of information about the local area, including bus timetables, maps and sample menus from local restaurants.  We also have a small garden with tables and chairs where guests can sit and unwind and hopefully soak up some Shanklin sunshine!  Wi-fi is free and available throughout most of the building.

We want to make your stay a relaxed and enjoyable one so, unlike some other bed and breakfasts, we don't need you to let us know exactly when you'll be arriving, unless it's going to be outside our usual check-in times.  We also don't need you to pre-order your breakfast the previous day, we're happy to take your order when you arrive down for breakfast and know how hungry you feel.

Blue badge holders may reserve a parking space at time of booking.
