Another trip to Lymington to check on elderly relative and staying as usual at the little gem. I would simply not consider staying anywhere else! Elaine is fantastic, breakfast smashing and nice quiet rooms.

Fairly easy to find as long as you look out for the blue front door. Elaine is very helpful in providing local information. We enjoyed a friday night stay in a large double room with en-suite facilities overlooking the garden. All very comfortable. Full English Breakfast the following morning was wonderful!

Aussies from Melbourne, we had been touring in Europe for a little over a month. I selected and pre-booked this accommodation 6 months earlier based upon its location close to the Isle Of Wight ferry departure... More

We came to visit The Motor Museum for my husband's Uncle's birthday, we found Little Gem a delightful home from home, Elaine makes sure that every guest is happy and made very welcome, the rooms are very clean and tidy and the beds very comfortable. A very yummy breakfast on both days. Thank you. The Burness family :)

A real pleasure to share this lady's home for a few nights. We took the twin room to the rear, good shower etc. , very comfortable and quiet, in a residential area near buses. Our host chatted with us with considerable knowledge and humour over a range of topics, while serving our breakfast, and made our stay memorable. We are... More

My wife and myself, plus our two dogs, used The Little Gem for a one-night stopover before catching the ferry to Yarmouth. Despite the small outward appearance of the house ("Is this it?", I thought when we pulled up outside), our room was a good size, well appointed, and complete with a good en-suite with excellent power shower - just...
