Loved it here. Couldn't be made to feel more welcome. Such good value for money. The room was gorgeous. The breakfast was very pleasant and the setting just lovely. Hope to visit again if partying at the Hewlett.

My husband and I have just returned from our first stay at The Battledown; we certainly will return. Comfortable, welcoming, spotlessly clean, with superb anticipatory service. Nothing was too much trouble, everything that you could need was in your room or accessible. We were welcomed with tea and coffee, breakfast was beautifully prepared, generous and varied, and the home made... More

This was our second stay at Battledown and once again it was a good decision, for all the reasons we enjoyed it first time. Simon and Sarah are helpful, friendly, flexible and happy to go the extra mile. Sarah's restaurant recommendation was a hit (Bistrot Coco) and was tailored to what we said we liked. She even called them to... More

The B&B is nicely decorated, warm and comfortable and the breakfasts are great. I would echo others comments though that packing the breakfast items away while clients are still eating doesn't give a good impression and to be honest we felt tolerated rather than welcomed. I found having to give a detailed explanation of where we planned to eat in... More
