On top of the quaint aspect of staying in an old Pulman railway carriage located adjacent to the beach; what made this B&B special was all the little extras that Jenny thought to provide for her guests.

Hilda is a very comfortable and spacious Pullman Carriage. You are greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. The accommodation is very comfortable, clean and extremely peaceful. The beach is just across the road and there are plenty of local attractions and nice pubs/restaurants. A walk along the beach to the Selsey Lifeboat is well worthwhile. It is very interesting...

We were looking for a quiet spot at the sea and found this lovely gem in Selsey. It's just 50 meters from the sea front at the far end of Selsey and a bird reserve on the other side. A hamlet of peace and a great start for lovely walks along the shore. Jenny kindly pointed us towards the best... More

Booked a couple of nights for my wife's birthday weekend in April. Wanted somewhere comfortable by the sea with nice walking. Was really impressed. Great facilities, loads of space and amazing location right on the beach and tucked away on the edge of town next to seaside wildlife reserve stretching for miles. Really attentive service by Jenny, lovely breakfast and... More

Had a lovely time staying in this beautiful and very comfortable Pullman carriage. First class breakfast and welcome from the very friendly and helpful owner Jenny. Really relaxing and a wonderful place to get away from it all, right on the beach and next to a RSPB reserve.

We stayed for three nights at the start of October at this wonderful old Pullman carriage dating back to Queen Victoria's time. Everything was perfect and no fault was found with anything, even the weather was great. Jenny, the owner cooks a wonderful breakfast with vast choices and we never ate again until early evening. On arrival there are chocolates,... More

We stayed at "Hilda" for 3 nights for the Goodwood Revival. "Hilda" was in a great location away from it all with fantastic views. The carriage was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Jenny was a great hostess, supplying chocolates, brownies and crisps and kindly making reservations for dinner for the 3 nights we were there. Breakfasts were a feast, and... More

Hilda is exactly what all the other reviews say. A very simple, quiet, calm, lovely place to go. Jenny is helpful and welcoming, you are 10ft from the beach. If you want to just stop in a genuinely relaxing atmosphere book Hilda.

Everything that has said before in previous reviews is true. Even the weather was splendid for our 2 day short stay. Well worth all the plaudits. Jenny will be make you feel like the Royalty who once used the carriage. If you stay we can recommend a trip to the Anchor Bleu in Bosham. Great Crab Salad.

The perfect place for our short break away from it all. Jenny's hospitality and attention to detail are second to none and the facilities Hilda has to offer makes each day feel like home from home by the sea. We wanted for nothing and can heartily recommend this most relaxing of venues.
