This is a local pub with accommodation but very well located, a decent if small car park and very convenient to the town and its facilities, the waterfront and the IOW Ferry, on foot in good weather or by 3 minute train journey from the lovely and quaint Town Station almost next door. Meals seem to be restricted to a... More

Managed to book last room available for a short two night stay. Although we understood this was not the most luxurious of the rooms we found it basic but more than adequate and immaculately clean. The atmosphere was totally relaxed and staff were a delight; special mention to the young lady who booked us in and served breakfast;; apologies for... More

Very welcoming and the staff I encountered went out of their way to be helpful. The room was of a decent size and it was nice to have bottled water as well as the usual tea and coffee. Good choice for breakfast, cooked quickly to order and again the service was friendly. There is a well kept garden which must... More

Friendly staff welcome and tidy room. Nice bar area with a good selection of beers and wine etc. Didn't eat so can't comment on this. Room was clean and tidy. Would stay again. Online booking was confirmed by phone call in timely fashion.

I stayed for a night to attend an event at Beaulieu the following day. The room was a single on the first floor at the back of the building and was very quiet except for the Dawn Chorus in the morning as I had left the window wide open (my Gaff). The bed was comfortable and the room came with... More

I recently spent a couple of nights here to round off my holiday in the area. All the staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your time here enjoyable. Clean room, comfortable bed, nice breakfast and the added bonus of a good pub downstairs. I have used The Bosun's Chair regularly for B&B in the past... More

Russ and the staff made a very friendly atmosphere, the room was very good and roomy (coming from Australia I'm used to plenty of space), nice ensuite. The beer garden out the back is a tranquil spot for a cool drink. The full breakfast every morning was great. I found it a convenient location for my needs and very good... More
