A small carpark on arrival just enough space per room not much fun when you have a large van. Had to ask the owner to move his car. Yeah you've guessed it had to take off my boots as it is a no shoes in the house policy(which is mentioned in every review!) , which is fine. The room itself... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the National Watersports Festival. We were given a friendly welcome by Clive and helpful advice for finding the excellent cycle route, avoiding the busy road, practically all the way to the event. Yes there are a few basic rules, but there weren't a problem for us as we do the same at... More

We arrived late at night by our host who gave us our key and told us what time breakfast was and then we went upstairs. I'm a child in a family of four and this is definitely not made for children such as no shoes, no drinks upstairs and such picky things like the television volume can't be above 27.... More

Booked in error my thanks to a crap search engine which meant they let us book for a room with a baby. We got there after hours of driving to be met by a surly man who simply said "you've got a problem we don't take babies. " Amongst other things. Despite having paid already he not only flatly refused... More

We spent a night at the Waratah and had a really enjoyable stay. Our room, and the house, is spotless and the bed linen, towels, etc are first class. Our breakfast was great and our hosts looked after us so well and provided good advice on the local area. The outdoor setting was beautiful and very relaxing with a glass... More

I stayed at the Waratah a few weeks ago for one night as I had business in Havant. The hosts are most welcoming and friendly. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and the bedroom very comfortable. The ensuite bathroom was again very clean. The breakfast in the morning was superb, freshly cooked and with quality produce. It set me up for... More

I stayed here last recently whilst visiting family on the island for one night its was absolutely lovely. Very clean, welcoming, choice of breakfasts, no shoes means clean floors throughout and luxurious carpet. Didn't get chance to sit in garden but looked well manicured garden and lit up in evening. Would def stay here again. Loved it.

A sincere, warm welcome as soon as I arrived. The room I stayed in was very comfortable, and I had one of the best nights sleep in ages. Clive and Linda are available, but your privacy is also respected. They are both friendly, with a great sense of humour. The breakfast was superb & their is a varied menu to... More
