“Is there a plummer in the house?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2006

The B&B itself is ideally placed for day-trips to the Isle of Wight (via Lymington), Christchruch, Bournemouth, The New Forest and the National Car Museum at Beaulieu (which is well worth a visit if you’ve never been).

My fiancée and I stayed in the 'Deluxe bedroom'. For just a few pounds more, we got the only room on the top floor and a Jacuzzi.

The landlady and B&B staff were pleasant enough and the breakfast was lovely.

On the downside, the B&B is on the well travelled road so for those expecting or used to a quiet cul-de-sac like location, there is a small degree of traffic noise. In addition, the shower was not fit for purpose during our visit. The landlady warned us that they had had trouble with the shower overflowing onto the floor and down into the hallway below. A simple rescaling/replacing of the shower head would have fixed this problem but unfortunately, the shower stopped working altogether whilst my fiancée was washing her hair!

All in all, if they can fix their hot water supply/shower problem I'd gladly reconsider a return visit and increase the mark from average.

Take what you read on Trip Advisor with a grain of salt. If you see a scathing one-star review but no other writers complain about the same problem(s), it's safe to write it off as an isolated incident.

Be wary of scathing reports from nutcases who have nothing better to do than write stupid e-mails!

We went there on recommendation and were more than satisfied with the service, food and accommodation.

We had a very small room with an 'en suite' bathroom the width of the toilet which you could not even turn round in. The comment 'caters for vegetarians' is also a joke, an egg, a few beans and horrible greasy mushrooms is all you get. The worse thing was we were falsely accussed of stealing the horrible towels and when we decided to leave a night early the owner said we had to pay for a further booked night, she then agreed that we pay only for the nights we'd stayed. However AFTER WE HAD LEFT SHE CHARGED MY CARD WITHOUT MY AUTHORISATION. I strongly recommend you avoid this establishment.
