“Convenient and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

Very clean and nice bathrooms, right on bus routes and local to main train station.

Breakfast was as good as anywhere and really tasty and fresh.

Friendly owner and you really cannot ask for better.

Also great if you need near the main Hospital, I have stayed many times.

Thanks for the review and the compliments. We're not a 'big hotel' but I'm pleased that we met your expectations for a guest house - clean, good value, convenient location.
I'll make sure all the staff see the review.

I desperately needed a cheap and easy place to stay for one night in S.Hampton. I found this B&B. They were incredibly nice and gave me a great discounted price. If you are relaxed and open minded about B&B's then this place is great. It is very warm and friendly, the people who run it are very helpful and nice. It has great free Wi-fi, good TV's and comfy beds. It is two minutes away from the train station and perfect for what I needed.

Having a bed and breakfast in France , we can appreciate the work that goes in to running a business like this. We really enjoyed our stay, nothing was too much trouble for the owners who kept a wonderful house and always had time for us even though they were obviously busy. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The cooked breakfast was second to none and of superb quality. The owners even e mailed me after the holiday to let me know where they had bought some items for the B&B which I had enquired about..amazing! Mr Morgan , Le Prieuré 46310 Saint Germain Du Bel Air

Delighted to get a last minute vacancy. Clean and well-ordered room with superbly comfortable bed. Huge, tasty breakfast served by welcoming staff. Steve left his TV football to pour me a much-needed glass of wine after my journey and he and Lyn looked after my luggage while I passed the following morning at the shops - within walking distance.
I couldn't have asked for more!

The couple running this place are lovely and very helpful if you need tips in where to go etc. The room was fine and very clean but bathroom was very small which didn't bother me except for you had to basically climb over the toilet to get in the shower! The shower itself was good and spacious though. Breakfast was good but finishes at 9 even on Sunday! However they were kind enough to call up and remind us of this when we hadn't showed yet at 5 to!

Thanks for the positive review. You must have had Room 9! You're right, guesthouse bathrooms can often be small but we do our best to make sure all ours are clean and tidy.
Hope that you'll stay with us again.

We planned on visiting Winchester and Salisbury by train during the two days we were in Southampton before our cruise. It was the main reason we chose this B & B because it's just a stone's throw from the train station. It turned out to be a good choice in other ways, as well. Though the decor might give Martha Stewart the vapors, the room was clean, comfortable and quiet.

Breakfast in the cheerful dining room was much above the average with fresh mushrooms, excellent coffee and the best black pudding I've ever had. Best of all, the proprietors are friendly and extremely helpful; they'll hold your bags after check out until you're ready to leave, call a taxi, etc. We'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Front room might not be as quiet as the others???

How kind that these guests bothered to write a review!
We don't solicit reviews but I'll show this to the ladies who work here with us. Our aim is to make customers feel like guests and I'm so glad we've got it right this time.
Now, we'll have to go through the June registrations to work out who lives in Laguna Niguel....
