Stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting our son. Room was clean warm and a comfortable bed. Shower was good as well we stayed in room 29 on the ground floor by reception. My only criticism was the breakfast which at £8 each I felt was overpriced and the baked beans used tasted like a cheap supermarket brand. We will... More

Three of us, overnight stay for a pals birthday weekend. Superb welcome, lovely room, lush breakfast. The only issue was the shower in room 24, the temperature wasn't static. It changed from cold to hot quickly. Not a massive issue, but not ideal for lasses getting ready to go out. Was an ideal stay!

Stayed just one night. A warm greeting at reception, a very comfortable good sized room. Bathroom needs a bit of modernising but it was very clean, with hot water and good amount of towels. Didn't get a chance to try breakfast but would stay here again if I needed to be in Fareham. Close to a main road, but inaudible... More

Thoroughly pleasant hotel quite near Fareham town centre. It's on a main road but traffic noise wasn't a problem. The bedroom was fine: bed comfy and a couple of chairs provided too. Decent bathroom where everything worked as it should. Loads of parking space available and friendly staff. Good place.

A traditional bed and breakfast but very professional. Room was quiet and comfortable. Bathroom is small but I don't worry about that when I'm booking somewhere. The hotel is about 7 minutes walk away, but you don't hear the trains or the traffic (it's on a busy main road). Breakfast was lovely, and cooked to order. I would recommend this... More

We used the Conservatory at the hotel for my daughters christening.The buffet and afternoon tea was lovely.The sandwiches were freshly prepared as required and all dietary needs and requirements were catered for. I would defiantly recommend using the conservatory for a function.The staff were lovely and nothing was to much trouble.

We picked this hotel because it was convenient for meeting family and was pet friendly. We went based entirely on recommendation and were not disappointed, we would certainly stay again. It was very quiet considering it is on a main road (A27) and is handy for Fareham Town Centre

Went as solo traveller to visit my son. Received a warm friendly welcome. Requested quiet room and it was spot on! Very comfortable bed so enjoyed a good nights sleep. Felt safe and secure, good parking, easy access. Lovely soft white towels. Breakfast really lovely in an airy pleasant conservatory overlooking the grounds Would stay again.

I found a great little inn, if you are down on the South Coast, near Fareham, and the Gosport peninsular. The receptionist was very welcoming, friendly, and explained little hints and tips that made my flying visit much easier.
