The Appley
4 Star Guest Accommodation
Access Statement

Introduction

The Appley is located in central Shanklin and offers Ten Guest rooms. The Appley
is over One hundred years old and whilst we aim to meet the needs of all our
guests there are some period features which might make access difficult for
people with limited mobility. We have rooms at different levels, with our dining
 room being down one flight of stairs, and therefore steps into some of the rooms.
 These make The Appley not suitable for wheelchair users.
