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.

My stay was only supposed to be one night but ended up staying whole weekend as my ferry was cancelled. The place was full but they managed to fit me in. The place is really lovel and the owners are so welcoming and kind. The breakfast is delicious. Thank you so much and I hope to see you again!

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

They have a policy of no shoes in the house but so do I! Who wants the outdoors trodden over the carpets. If you have a problem with this then take some slippers! My partner... More

This is not a lodge it's a guest house and the photo listed in booking.com has been trimmed to make it appear the property is situated in large country grounds,that's not the case, it's on a very busy main road and there are properties on either side of Waratah. On arrival I was greeted by man wearing no shoes or... More
