We had two nights at Heather Gables and can only say how perfect everything was. Beautiful garden, even though it was raining it still looked lovely,and such a wonderful breakfast. All four of us had something different - all equally delicious. Best bed ever! And the bed linen top quality.Super place and can only recommend it highly.

We had two lovely nights at Heather Gables. An immaculate room, spacious bathroom and pretty view. Everything has been carefully thought of including a hairdryer, a torch and KitKats on the tea tray (much excitement at that!). Rita made us a fantastic breakfast on both mornings and nothing was too much trouble including ordering a taxi for us when we... More

Top quality room and breakfast, and friendly and helpful hosts. If I was running a B & B, this is what I would aim for. Highly recommended. Very convenient for M27 Junction 8. A bit of road noise at night with windows open (it was a hot night) but nothing serious.

My room overlooked a beautiful garden of rhododendrons. I was made very welcome and the house was extremely tidy and clean. Rita provided a wonderful breakfast and when I left my phone charger behind, she kindly posted it on to my home. Robert Williams, Hertfordshire

Hi I started work in the Whiteley area back in November 14 so needed 3 nights accomadation each week. Looking at the ratings of B&B's in the area Heather Gables rated very well, so I booked for the first week. I wasn't disappointed. The owners, Peter and Rita were very welcoming and kept the place in immaculate condition. I stayed... More

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
