A one night stay for us and what a gem. Warm welcome, lovely rooms with perfect en suite facilities, and great hosts. Perfectly located for our visit as equidistant from the Botley Park Hotel where we attended a luncheon, and then later on supper at The Bugle in Hamble. We were blessed to wake up to a glorious autumn morning... More

Just spent the night at Heather Gables and thought it was wonderful. Beautiful house, very clean, excellent bed and bedding. The breakfast was faultless and the views from the house stunning. Will return, thank you both.

What a truly delightful guest house run by Rita & Peter Dorman. We had the pleasure of staying in one of their ( two) rooms for 3 nights last week while holidaying on the Dorset coast. The room was spotless and tranquil,with an oh so comfortable (kingsize?) bed with crisp white bedding and a most welcome selection of up to... More

Stayed at Heather Gables for 1 night last week and really wished it was for longer. An absolute gem of a place. Arrived Friday lunchtime to be greeted by the lovely Rita who could not have been more helpful. Was shown to the most delightful room which had everything and more one could wish for. Every little detail has been... More

A thoroughly nice place to stay. Beautiful room and bathroom with balcony overlooking lovely gardens. Peter and Rita were very hospitable and professional. Breakfast plentiful and scrumptious breakfast. Very convenient for Hamble sailing and Southampton. Recommended

We have literally just returned home from our sailing day and a absolutely wonderful nights stay at this totally charming and I can honestly say the best B&B we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many all over the world. The rooms with their French doors and cute little balconies are truly delightful with every small detail... More

My husband and I have really enjoyed our time here. The décor in Heather Gables is very homely and inviting. The bedroom was wonderful, bedecked in all things comfy, we have slept soundly each night here and awoken to such a stunning view of the garden (so pretty). Every morning has been a delight viewing the beautiful, mature trees/shrubs, the... More

Booked rooms for relatives visiting for a family wedding. They both said they had good very clean rooms with comfortable beds and lovely views. Everything they needved was provided. Nice lounge and patio area and a well cooked ample breakfast. All very good value too. Recommended.
