Leisureplex has been catering for clients on coach holidays for over 30 years in top seaside resorts throughout Great Britain. The purchase brings the Leisureplex estate to a total of 21 hotels in the UK. The Shanklin Hotel, Shanklin will be the group's second hotel on the Isle of Wight alongside the Bayshore Hotel in Sandown.

The Shanklin Hotel has 89 rooms, on-site parking, an indoor leisure complex with swimming pool and an indoor bowls area. However, it is probably most renowned for its magnificent Starlite Lounge which is a superb venue for dinner dances and entertainment with breathtaking, panoramic views across the bay. The Shanklin Hotel is one of the best known on the Isle of Wight, with visitors enjoying their stay so much that the Shanklin was awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Award in 2013.

The hotel is perfectly located, providing ample opportunity to explore everything the Isle of Wight has to offer. Plus, some of the rooms offer stunning views across the bay, over the Downland or directly over the English Channel!

Leisureplex Managing Director, Paul Sawbridge, commented: 'We have long coveted this superb hotel which enables us to improve the standard we offer to our Alfa coach holiday customers visiting Shanklin. Just as importantly, it helps us to accommodate the huge surge in demand we have experienced in recent years from other coach holiday operators.'
