Great location, several pubs in close proximity for meals and refreshments, but really does need a housekeeper to service the rooms. Chris was very friendly, and cooked a great breakfast with options if you didn't want full English. Our room was upstairs in the house, very private and quiet, although a shower would have been preferable to a bath. Comfortable... More

Small rooms, dirty beds and towels. Mould on ceiling of bathrooms. Asked for 2 twin beds was given a double. Poor job of securing waste pipe. Unsafe plugs (overuse of 1 socket). Spider webs and dirty marks all over the place. At breakfast we were given no option about what we would like. There was no manual guide as to... More

An absolute disappointment. The rooms actually are converted garage, dirty and cold. The owner is unfriendly. There is almost to phone reception never mind the wifi connection. It is not worth the money. The bathroom towels are dirty, no shampoo or soap available.

We booked for two nights but only stayed one. Accommodation was adjoining rooms in an outdoor cabin, unattractively furnished, poor finishes in bathroom, towels and bed linen marked and seen better days, cleaning poor (cobwebs etc). The lack of insulation between rooms didn't matter for us as we are a family but if you were next door to strangers you... More

Stayed here again at the beginning of August because we enjoy taking our dogs on short breaks to the sea side. Chris the owner is a lovely guy, nothing is too much trouble and he cooks a mean full English breakfast. Situated in West Mardon you are around 20 mins from the coast and it is very quiet and peaceful.... More

Staying on business the secure parking was a good bonus. The room was in a converted garage and smelled a little musty at first, but had aired out by the time we returned from our evening meal. The beds were very comfortable and there was plentiful hot water. The owner was very friendly and had made contact before our stay,... More

Unable to recommend this B & B. We stayed in the De-facto garage converted (badly) to double room. Dirty, cold and damp. Fit-out of room and ensuite was cheap and poorly done. Breakfast room dirty and untidy in full view of equally dirty cooking area. No wifi in the room. Price was expensive given the standard - if it was... More

The location was advertised as Chichester, but was a long way from there on very narrow roads (more like a bridlepath), and the place was extremely difficult to find. For £75 per night, the room was average with a small, old-fashioned television which had to be viewed while lying on the bed. There was one chair, but there were two... More

We arrived at the appointed time to find locked gates and no response to the bell. No mobile signal in the area. Finally, after around 15 mins waiting outside the gates in pitch black darkness, we guessed the right combination and gained access. The owner had gone out but his partner apologised that we had not been provided with the... More
