Daish’s Holidays, the chain of hotels on the south coast of England, has completed a £1m refurbishment of its flagship Daish’s Hotel in Shanklin on the Isle of Wight.
In what is believed to be the island’s most expansive hotel makeover, the company – voted Most Group-Friendly Hotel Chain 2014 by Group Travel Awards – has improved all 72 of the hotel’s bedrooms as well as its Tally Ho bar.

It has added a coffee shop, where guests can enjoy light snacks and overlook the hotel’s garden and terrace.
Originally an 18th-century coaching inn, the Daish’s Hotel has been welcoming guests for hundreds of years. It gained a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2013. Today, the hotel retains its period features, yet gains the facilities people expect in a modern destination.
Attracting 2.6 million visitors a year, the Isle of Wight is one of England’s most popular holiday destinations. Guests return year after year to Daish’s Hotel to enjoy the picturesque town of Shanklin and Daish’s popular excursions which include Owl and Monkey Haven, Osborne House & Godshill, the Amazon World Zoo and Blackgang Chine.
