Situated on the main road just outside the village of Bosham, this is a very nice B&B. The self check-in service works well with each room having its own front door making arrival convenient and without fuss. Room was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated (Sail Loft). Excellent tasty breakfast - freshly cooked by friendly hosts. We only stayed one night... More

Stayed in the Fontwell Room. Underwhelming, smallest en-suite I have ever experienced, rusty chrome fittings, near empty soap bottles. Breakfasts cooked to order yet on both mornings were overcooked, bacon rock hard and overcooked eggs. On arrival I tried the intercom at the front door to inform them of a problem with the room but could not get an answer.... More

Thank you for a delightful stay. The Sail Loft was light, bright, modern and extremely comfortable and the views over freshly mown cornfields idyllic. The bed was heavenly and we appreciated the bottled water by our bedsides, the tea and coffee making facilities and the fridge. The private terrace was such a good idea as well. Your welcome was warm... More

This is a low price basic no frills sort of a joint and that is just what I was after. Its not somewhere I would take the wife for a romantic getaway but to be fair to them thats not what this establishment claims to be about. When I am on the road travelling for work I want somewhere clean... More

Thank you for this review although I feel it may be off putting to some people because of its nature. We have many, many, customers come here for anniversaries and birthdays in fact many more than work people. (See our reviews 76 couples vs 16 business) It is true that when this gentleman stayed, in the winter, we cut right... More

This is a lovely B & B, I would recommend to anyone. I didn't get to meet Lorraine as she was away on holiday but Kevin was very welcoming, chatty and helpful. We stayed in the sail loft which was a lovely room, warm, airy, clean, well furnished and with a VERY comfortable bed. The shower room located downstairs was... More

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
