Very lovely couple who were very accommodating to my check in and check out needs due to work scheduling. It was easy to get to with great directions. I had a lovely room and when I was in a pickle about getting to a wedding they even gave me a lift! Very lovely people to talk to and I would... More

Do not stay here! The new owners Ken and Sheila have only owned this B&B for less than a month, and have no clue! I booked via Booking.com, and was sent an automated email to say that they are not a hotel, and that they will not be there to check one in at 22h00! This said it all. It... More

We spent the weekend here recently and enjoyed our stay. Great location, 2 minutes from the railway station and good eating places in the immediate vicinity. We had bought our bikes and when asked if there was somewhere safe to leave them, had a key to the garage placed on our room key. You let yourself into the house by... More

I would really not be able to recommend this B&B on any level. Our bathroom was really quite dirty - the floor had splodges of toothpaste on, there was some rubbish left on the floor, and the toilet had been squirted with cleaning product, which then hadn't been wiped off. The whole place looked a bit tired and like it... More

I am so sorry that you did not find the accommodation clean enough or good value for money. I do try to make sure that everything is spic and span but rely on guests to inform me if things are not up to scratch when they arrive or during their stay. I will review our cleaning procedures to ensure that... More

This was one of the strangest B&B's we have stayed in.....the room was just fantastic & the bed amazingly comfortable but....although our host was contactable by phone we did not see anybody and the B&B was faceless thereby not very personal. The main point for us was that we were under the assumption that we had paid for Bed &... More

I am so pleased you found the accommodation satisfactory. Unfortunately there is nothing i can do about an electricity outage but I am never the less sorry that it made you fee your stay was spoilt by this. With regard to the lack of personal touch. I run the house on the basis of coming to stay with an aunt... More

My sister and I count ourselves very lucky to have found this wonderful b&b. The location being so close to the rail station and bus network (within walking distance), was perfect for us as neither of us drive. The number of tea shops and restaurants in the town well, we were spoilt for choice. The owner, Tracy, was a font... More

Spotlessly clean B&B, with a friendly and helpful proprietor for whom nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the freedom to come and go as we pleased without any of the petty restrictions that are sometimes in place in B&Bs. Homely touches included homemade biscuits and cakes on arrival, and the opportunity to arrive and let ourselves in (via the... More

This lovely b&b was just perfect for our 4 night stay. Feels nice and homely when when you walk in. Very handy that you enter the house using a door code, leaving you to come and go freely. Our family room was clean, warm and spacious. Breakfast was delicious with a selection of cold meats, salmon, cereals, fruit, yoghurts and... More

We booked this getaway last minute for my boyfriends birthday and it didn't disappoint. Its a 2 minute walk from Brockenhurst station so perfect for weekenders getting the train who want to make the most of their time. Location wise it's in the centre of Brockenhurst so all the amenities are a short walk away and Brockenhurst itself is in... More

Our room was lovely - a great shower and really comfy bed. The whole house is very vintage and has lots of homely touches, like a piano that guests can play, lots of books to browse and delicious breakfast and afternoon tea. Tracy was a perfect hostess, giving us lots of helpful advice about the New Forest, cycle hire and... More
