Had two nights here. Clean tidy room if a bit small, especially if you were here for a few days. Nice garden -bit overgrown but nice to sit out in. Pauline was helpful and breakfast was ok.(bit too much sweet stuff for my liking but my wife loved it) The Boathouse (no its not on the water) is well situated... More

We had been driving around for hours, trying to find a room for the night when Kevin and Paula took pity on us and made up a room at 11.30 on a Monday evening! Our huge room (with en suite) was gorgeous and had a fantastic rural view. It was clean, neat and tidy. We had the best night's sleep... More

Needing an overnight stop near Bosham we booked at the Boathouse on the recommendation of our regular taxi driver. It proved to be a good Joyce. We stayed in the garden room. It was a reasonable size, but fully functional. The room was quiet and comfortable something I find important. The tempura mattress particularly so. A fresh breakfast with lots... More

Lovely B and B with comfortable clean rooms, each with their own private garden area as well as use of the larger garden. Breakfast was served in a beautiful room and included a choice of cereals, fruits, yoghurts and pastries plus a cooked breakfast selection that was cooked for each individual as ordered. Kevin and Paula, the owners were the... More

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
