This is a fabulous B&B with great facilities, beautiful garden and the views from the rooms amazing. Great choice at breakfast and close to welcoming pubs that serve good evening meals. Available free parking also a bonus. We stayed in the sail loft which made for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Clean, tidy with interesting features like the travel case... More

This was our third stay at The Boathouse. We like The Sail Loft because of the lovely views over the downs from the window, and also because the room is decorated so charmingly. Kevin and Paula have paid attention to every detail, right down to providing a phone charger in the room. We will definitely be coming back. Tips for... More

I'm very fussy when it comes to where I stay and this was perfect. I've not stayed in a b&b before and I was a bit unsure before hand but it was lovely. We stayed in the captins cabin the room was very big with double doors that over looked the beautiful garden. The room was very clean with nice... More

Thank you for your excellent review Gemma. It was a pleasure to meet you and Ryan. We'd like to mention that all of our rooms have Duvets and pillows made from very luxurious and expensive Hungarian Goose Down, rarely found in Hotels.

Although not actually in Bosham village, this B& B is ideally situated on the main road so easy to visit Chichester/Emsworth and surrounding areas. And the bus stop is just outside the door, with a frequent service between Portsmouth and Bognar. All rooms are individually accessed with your own key, so you can come and go as you please, without... More

Bosham-Boater, Owner at The Boathouse Bosham, responded to this review

Thank your for your kind review although we would just like to point out that we actually ARE in the Village of Bosham. Also not ALL rooms have independent access from the garden. 3 of the Superior rooms are upstairs in the main house but access is easy and you are welcome to come and go as you please. More

We stayed in a twin bedded room which was very small and cramped. It was a self service check in which made one feel most unwelcome. Nobody to greet you and make you feel comfortable. The on suite shower room was claustrophobic and one couldn't even turn around once in there. the extractor fan was not working. The shower gel... More

We spent two very comfortable nights here in the garden room. The breakfasts are excellent and nothing was too much trouble for Kevin and Paula. We spent our first day in Chichester and second visiting Uppark House and Fishbourne Palace. Bosham is also an interesting place for a wander round.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boathouse is ideally situated for exploring and visiting a wealth of local sites and venues. Historical Bosham Church and Quay are within 2km walking distance. Chichester is just a few minutes drive away, or why not take advantage of the bus that stops a few yards down the road? If you are feeling energetic, you might enjoy the local cycle path from Emsworth to Chichester, which passes right outside. This superbly renovated, six-bedroomed house offers 4 guest rooms. All of these ground floor bedrooms are independently accessed and therefore provide private and secure B&B accommodation. ... more   less
