The Boathouse is a great place to stay. It is well positioned for visiting the coast and around the Downs with easy access to Chichester and the main roads. We had the Capt'ns Cabin Superior room which is very spacious and very comfortable. The view was fantastic and it was amazingly quiet. The bed (Tempur mattress) was great and provided... More

My wife and I stayed for one night in the captains cabin. We paid £99 for a last minute booking, and but it was not value for money. The bedroom was big but the decoration and bathroom were not high quality. This is a mid range b & b charging high prices.

I went to University in Chichester and graduated 11 years ago. My partner and I decided to spend a couple of days in the area, and I had never been to Chichester harbour during my time at Uni so thought we'd visit there to, so was looking for a B & B in the Chichester Harbour area. We travelled down... More

We had a fab couple of nights at this lovely venue. It was a celebratory getaway for us and this b&b fitted the bill perfectly. Amazingly comfy bed , beautiful garden and thoughtful hosts made it memorable. Even before we arrived we received information by email with recommendations of local restaurants as well as checkin info which proved very helpful.... More

Decided to have a weekend away on the south coast and rather than travel home have a night away. Booked the B&B the day before and did not regret our choice. Stayed in the Garden Room which as its name suggests has a view of the garden. The room isn't large but it is beautifully furnished and very cosy. Very... More

Having been let down by another B&B due to plumbing problems, I was recommended to try the Bosham Boathouse. I got lucky as they had a room free, which despite being a double they let me have at single rate as I was travelling alone. The checkin instructions arrived by email within minutes and explained that I could turn up... More

Appreciated the email the day before giving instructions on how to find The Boathouse and how to use the "self check in". Our room was in the annex and was very comfortable, beautifully decorated and very clean. Extremely comfortable beds and want to return so i can use the small private courtyard garden. Breakfast was fab, plenty of choice and... More

Beautiful room which was very warm and comfortable. Lovely leisurely breakfast in the morning with a good mixture of hot food and a wide variety of cold options such as pastries, breakfast bars and fruit. Owners really friendly and very knowlegeable about things to see and do in the area. We were made to feel very welcome. Would highly recommend... More

Stayed 1 night in Goodwood room a few days ago. The "self check-in" system is a bit unusual but works fine. Very comfortable bed and room with everything you could want. House is on a main road but our room was totally quiet. Paula,the owner,cooked us a tasty breakfast and was welcoming and helpful. Would happily stay here again. Would... More
