We had a quiet room at the back - something you should ask for as it is near a major busy road. I thought the room was not great value at £88 with breakfast added on at £8 each to make a price for a couple of over £100 per night. For that I would have expected a bigger room... More

I have now stayed at this guest house on around 4 occasions and always find it very clea, quiet and an ideal place for a weekend visit to family. My last visit was yet again very pleasant, breakfast with full English is £8 though I choose not to have breakfast as I normally only have a croissant and a cup... More

We stayed for five nights in the hotel's disabled room. I think the beds in this room are ready for replacing as there was a very thick mattress cover on top. As I am disabled and small I found it difficult to get into bed and it was a bit like sleeping on a blancmange. To be fair when I... More

We stayed here one night, it was competitively priced and was OK. The room was small but adequate, the tea,coffee etc was good. There was hanging space, mirrors for make up and the TV worked. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows and there was little intrusive road noise, we were at the front. The bathroom was well equipped... 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!

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.
