“Breakfast with a Garden View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This B&B is ideal for fans of Midsomer Murders since the host actually appears as an extra in that TV series! He was able to give us first-hand insight into the series locations which include and surround lovely Marlow. This B&B is also close to Heathrow. The rooms were clean,comfortable and complete with all the extras. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts in the dining room which overlooks a beautiful back garden. But this review would be amiss if it did not include the warm and friendly personalities of the hosts - Sue and Paul. They were - simply the best. We felt we had known them for many years - of course we had seen Paul on TV but didn't realize it at the time! If people make the memories and the trip - we were lucky to find them. They told us about a walk to a pub - through a small wood and down a path through a beautiful field of summer grain. Frankly - it was like being in a movie! Many thanks, Sue and Paul, for many memories.

When we (from Germany, Mother and daughter, 11) started our England-Holidays in Marlow, we stayed at this B&B for two nights. It is an absolutely wonderful place to stay and we regret we didn´t book some days more. We had a very comfortable, pretty room and didn´t miss anything. The house is very well maintained and clean and has a very homely atmosphere. Sue and Paul made us feel welcome, they spared no efford to help us in any way. We will come back again!

This is a small B&B with a maximum of three rooms. We felt very much at home here, with both Sue and Paul going out of their way to help in any way. The whole house is kept spotless and as mentioned in previous reviews everything you could need provided in the room.
It is a shared bathroom, but we knew this before we went, and I have to say although there were at least two other people staying there at the same time we never saw them!
The bed was very comfortable and there is a TV with free view.
I could not fault the breakfast, in fact I have never had such a "non fatty" cooked breakfast, it was beautiful. Sue was prepared to do any combination you might request, and there was ample cereals, and toast and jam etc. No instant coffee here either, we were provided with a pot of freshly made coffee both mornings which my husband enjoyed very much.
Breakfast is taken with a lovely view of the garden through patio doors, and if you time it right I think it would be possible to watch live pictures from inside their bird box!! We were too late this time unfortunately, but it is a great idea.
The centre of Marlow is only five minutes by car, and is a lovely place to wander around, or if you want something a bit more energetic you can walk the Thames Path either towards Henley or down stream. Sue lent us a pair of binoculars (as we had forgotten ours) and we had some great views of the numerous red kites in the area.
Altogether it was a lovely stay with two very pleasant hosts. Thank you Sue and Paul, I wish our stay could have been longer!!

Stayed there recently while attending a wedding locally. Very clean and homely. Felt very welcomed and relaxed the whole stay. Bath robes provided and the usual condiments (tea, coffee, biscuits) as well as shampoo, etc in the bathroom. Hairdryer available and a TV in the room with DVD player and some DVDs to watch should you wish. Iron and ironing board available. Bathroom is shared but since I had the B&B to myself it didn't matter at all. Breakfast delicious with a wonderful view of the immaculately attended to garden whilst eating. Breakfast table is shared. Marlow town is a short drive away and I was without a car. Apparantly it can be walked in around half an hour but Sue kindly dropped me off in town in her car and I taxied back for £8. Would highly recommend.

Sue and Paul make you very welcome and have considered everything you might need and have it available in your room. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean as was the rest of the house. There's an iron and board, mending kit, hairdryer (good one) and cotton wool balls and a magnifying mirror in the room as well as the standard tea tray (fully stocked).

I stayed on business and arrived late. I was met with a big smile and a cold pitcher of water (great on such a warm night - 19degrees outside!).

A fabulous breakfast to set you up for the day is served in a lovely dining room overlooking a beautifully kept garden. I didn't want to leave to go to work!

I know you will be think - oh a shared bathroom??, but there is also another separate loo and Sue is very attentive to these to ensure they are always clean. I had no issue with this as they were so clean and each guest has their own bathmat and towels in their rooms as well as dressing gowns - told you they have thought of everything - there are even toiletries in the bathroom in case you have forgotten your own.

I stay in B&B's all over the country whilst on business and after my recent visit I can say that this is one of the best. The accommodation is absolutely spotless, breakfast as good as it gets and Sue and Paul make you very welcome in their home. For the future it will be one of the places I phone first when working in south west London, I just hope there will be a vacancy. WiFi is available and when you've done your emails, there are a number of restaurants in the area to get a good meal.

I stayed at Sue's for a night whilst we were walking the Chiltern Way. Firstly, their B&B is ideally situated for the Chiltern Way - just a few yards of the track. Second, we couldn't have hoped for a more friendly welcome - quite literally, Sue and Paul couldn't do more to make our stay more comfortable and complete.

An excellent bed and breakfast
