“The Best Experience Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

John & Pam are managing their bed & breakfast with real pride and passion with so many years of experience in the hotel business; they have perfected their experience. While serving our breakfast (silver service style) John was telling me that most of his working life was dedicated to training five star hoteliers how to run their hotels efficiently and beyond the expectations of their guests; a lifetime of expertise has been transferred into their bed & breakfast and every detail has been calculated for your benefit while you stay and no expense spared; honestly I don't know how they can profit given the level of service they offer they are just addicted to perfection!! If you don’t need the swimming pool, gym and business services offered by a five star hotel then you have everything else you need and better. My wife and children were treated like royalty and I am sure John and Pam still believe that they are running their five star hotel; having travelled much of the world in real 5 star hotels I can assure you that John & Pam are offering an amazing experience and that will be above your expectations; we didn’t want to leave and I seriously thought about extending our stay from four nights to two weeks just to enjoy their service; good size rooms; very comfortable beds; quality bed linen, towels and toiletries; teas & coffees available 24 hours; modern clean environment and plenty of steaming hot water for showers etc. Full breakfast included a choice of cereals; fresh fruits and yogurts; full English breakfast, unlimited teas, coffees, and toast, all with unlimited smiles and humor, and no messing about; breakfast served on time at your request; top quality meats for your sausages and bacon! Trust me we were spoilt rotten 25th May to 29th May 2013 Paul Beale

This is a charming B&B situated within a few minutes walk of the town centre & We were welcomed at the door by John who explained to us about our free parking space that was allocated to us during the length of our stay in the main car park He even kindly offered to jump in our car & show us directions on how to find it !

The rooms here are well furnished to a good standard, power shower included & are all meticuously clean !

We stopped for a total of 3 nights & every morning we looked forward to our delicious brealfast served up by Johns wife Pam options are wide although being the greedy sorts we opted for the full English every morning quality ingreidients & her mushrooms are to die for !

Would we return a most definite yes from us !

Many Thanks Guys !

John and Pam made myself and my partner feel very at home in their lovely clean cosy B&B. Our room was great with lovely decorations and very comfy bed, lovely view too of all the town and glimpse of river! Toilet was very clean and very big with great warm shower and lovely toiletries. Breakfast was very tasty with everything you could want and more, I opted for the fresh fruit and yogurt, cereal, full English, extra toast, orange juice and several cups of coffee!! The B&B is just a short walk to the main town where you have everything so ideal location. Even offered a turn down service which I've only ever had in 5 stars!! Really couldn’t fault the place at all. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Hope to see you both again….

We stayed at Southford House in February for a short family break during half term and it's an understatement to say that we were pleasantly surprised! Friends had stayed at the self catering part downstairs (Carefree), but we opted for the B&B. The location is perfect- just a short stroll from the centre of town, but tucked away so really quiet. We were made to feel so welcome by the owners, John and Pam, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room we had was perfect for my husband and I and our two children, with the kids room off our double and the whole of the top floor to ourselves. Everything was so well thought out, from the luxurious bedding, lovely welcome tray and tasteful decor. A real home-from-home but with added special touches. The breakfasts were the best I have had from any 4 or 5 star place I've stayed at. We'll definitely be back. Thanks for such a relaxing stay.
