“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

A friend and I had a wonderful experience at the Ranelagh B&B, Chris and Margot were wonderful hosts, providing very helpful sightseeing and dinner recommendations. Breakfast (we just had the continental) was lovely and convivial, I felt like part of the family! My only regret is that we only stayed one night.

My partner & I just spent two lovely nights in Ranelagh B&B, in a lovely, clean & very comfortable room overlooking the garden. You feel very much like you're a guest in a friend's home, especially in the morning when Chris joins you for a chat over breakfast (a lovely start to the day, whether you take full English or continental - we did one morning of each!) and both he and Margo are very welcoming.

The Victorian house is filled with photographs, paintings and collected treasures from over the years. And our bedroom had a nice selection of books. The private bathroom for the double room is on the floor below, though this isn't a problem as there's only two rooms available for guests so you're highly unlikely to run into anyone on the stairs! :)

It's an easy walk into town (wander a different way every day, we did!) and to the Hospital of St Cross. There's a great little pub within a couple of minutes (the Queen Inn) and the quirky Wykeham Arms is within 10 minutes walk.

It's a great experience, much more personable & homely than a hotel so if you're looking for a friendly, quiet and very relaxing experience then I recommend it.

Great B&B, not least for the friendly greeting from Chris, and easy to walk into centre of town. My room was quiet and comfortable with some great books to choose from for bedtime reading. As for the breakfast - cooked to perfection, with the added benefit of the personable and sociable Chris on hand to help the day off to a good start.

I stayed one night with Chris and Margot Brown at the Ranelagh and it was a very positive experience. I'd had a stressful day and was looking forward to a long day, delivering a training course, in the morning. The room was large and quiet and the bed so comfortable that I slept through, which is rare for me on work trips. The high point has to be Chris's excellent cooked breakfast which sustained me right through the day! Delicious, high quality ingredients and great conversation over breakfast. Thank you, you made what could have been a horrid trip away from home into a really good experience. I'm sure my clients at Hampshire Museum's Service enjoyed my training so much more because they had a relaxed, well-fed trainer before them, not a harrassed one!

Room Tip: This is a traditional English b and b, with personal and friendly service, not a swish hotel, so don...

What a lovely B&B! Ranelagh is such a wonderful place to stay, you'll be treated as friends rather than guests. Wonderful breakfast (bonus of chatting with Margo and Chris), superb bed, superb shower - surrounded by lots of wonderful photos of Margo & Chris' life.
A short (15 min) walk into Winchester!
Perfect!
Will definitely return, sooner rather than later!

I've stayed here on two occasions one week for each time and can most enthusiastically recommend this B & B for its oustanding value, hospitality and all in all positive experience not least due to the proprietors who could not be more helpful and concerned that one's stay is a good one. Excellent!

This was a lovely homely B and B where the owners did everything to make us feel very welcome in their home. The room was beautiful and the owners were very accommodating with letting us drop our bags off early. In the morning there was a lovely cooked breakfast. Excellent value for money and would thoroughly recommend this to all my friends and family.
