We found Kevin and Lorraine excellent hosts, anything we needed or wanted to ask they were always very helpful and entertaining. We stayed in the Sail Loft and loved the room, great comfy bed and lots of sun light and air flow. The self-check-in email is a great idea, unfortunately for us we hadn't checked our email to find it... More

Very comfortable rooms in an lovely setting. A short walk ( 1 mile) to Bosham which is quiet beautiful. The owners are superb and make you feel very welcome. Had a good chat at breakfast. Really recommend this place for a brilliant relaxing weekend.

Stayed in The Sail Loft room. lovely romantic bedroom with bathroom located downstairs in a self contained unit. Amazing bed, so comfy and towels were provided despite reading that they wouldn't be. (Much nicer to have them supplied). The room was spotless, shower great, toiletries supplied and bed linen/duvet high quality. Breakfast: I was told on booking that by the... More

Thank you for your honest and positive feedback. For the record I just want to say that eggs are not offered at this time. I do remember the conversation and offer my apologies for giving the wrong impression. I also just want to clear up the 'Marg' saga. This is obviously an issue with people as its been aired twice...

The B&B offered a comfortable, clean room. An adequate shower room and private side entrance. However, breakfast was disappointing. Whilst it outlined "light B and B", we were expecting at least a nice choice of pastries and a variety of breads. As it was you get plain brown or white toast with cheap jam and margarine. There were cold croissants,... More

I don't know... we give up... We get 77 excellent reviews and are rated 1 out of 7 for over 2 years and then... for the winter season, we drop our prices to less than half but offer a very basic breakfast and we get all this flak. We describe breakfast, as Cereal, Toast, Juice, Tea & Coffee on the... More

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Can you hear the heartfelt relief in those words. We speak to dozens of people a week that love our B&B Lite style, our home and our hospitality (granted you don't see us much) but unfortunately it's a rare breed, such as yourselves, that put that opinion out in the public domain.

The booking was made for me through my business and on checking back I found the detail ambiguous. No towels for a B&B is puzzling and the term "Lite" is misleading. The booking stated breakfast included and £6 plus for a round of toast and coffee is excessive. The self-check in has it's advantages but the self-certification of breakfast time... More

I am afraid that we feel this is one of those situations where an individual values themselves more than their company does. This room was booked by someone else at the office. We state clearly what's for breakfast. We do supply towels and breakfast is included if booked through us and £2.50 booked through an agency, which this company did... More

I've been here before but that was for a break during the summer. This time my visit was for one night only to attend a funeral next day. I booked "B&B light" so expected some major differences from summer as it was incredibly cheap. I couldn't believe it when I checked in (quite late but as it was self check... More

Firstly the positives, The rooms were lovely, but at nearly £70 a room for a B&B this is to be expected, all clean, tidy and comfortable. We booked all the rooms for a group stay, and apart from the rooms being nice, it fell short of what you would expect of a quality B&B. Our shower door was broken and... More

I have been dying to respond to this. This is the unfortunate situation where someone booked the rooms on behalf of many others. They did not read the description of what they were paying for but just saw the price and KERCHING! never mind the rest... the pictures look lovely. Rather than accepting responsibility to the rest of the group... More

This was a 'spur of the moment' three day break and we basically were not disappointed with our choice! Our room was the Chichester Room; and was tucked away and secluded; with its own private entrance! In season we could have sat outside in our own enclosed part of the garden! The Chichester room was cosy warm and comfortable and... More

We stayed in the sail loft room which was beautifully decorated and had a very comfortable bed. Although it's on a main road there wasn't much noise from traffic at all. However we could hear our neighbours talking loudly, but do not know if they were noisy or the walls were thin. Upon entering the front door, you see the... More
