Breakfast was amazing with the best quality ingredients. Comfortable lounge and conservatory for guests to use. Absolutely faultless with an impressive attention to detail. We... More

Just got back from our holiday on IOW where part of our trip was staying at this wonderful B&B. Fabulous large room and the breakfast and hospitality were first class. Will definitely recommend to our friends and hope to return one day. Alec and Hazel Denham

This is without doubt a 5star plus B&B. Our hosts, Karen and Steve, have done a fantastic job of refurbishing the establishment. With superbly appointed rooms, space, king size beds, and ensuite with a great shower one had a comfortable and memorable stay. Breakfasts were superb and tea or coffee were offered at any time of the day. A bar... More

On arrival we were greeted warmly by the hosts, Steve and Karen. We had a welcoming cup of tea with them and our bags were carried to our room. Our room was stylish and contemporary. The beds were so comfortable, I have a bad back, but not with this bed. The duvet and pillows are of top hotel quality and... More

You may have heard of the disastrously run hotel called Fawlty Towers, well this is "Faultless Towers" - the accommodation. hospitality, breakfast and whole experience was simply amazing. Steve and Karen are the most welcoming, accommodating hosts you will find - nothing is too much trouble. The place has recently been refurbished to a very high standard, we stayed in... More

This was my first time staying in a bed and breakfast and it has probably set the benchmark far too high! Karen and Steve are so friendly, welcoming and laid back, nothing is too much for them. The room was clean and cosy, and the living and dining areas are both inviting. There's lovely plush carpet throughout. Top marks for... More

So glad we chose this hotel. Steve and Kas were perfect hosts. The room was excellent and very convenient for getting around. A very good choice for breakfast and a pot of coffee in the conservatory before eating. The bar had everything we wanted. Would definitely recommend this to our friends.
