We have just returned from a three week trip and this property by far is the best accommodation we encountered on our trip. It's total 5 star all the way, from the way you are greeted and met to gorgeous luxurious room with all the mod cons (including thoughtful home made cup cakes to enjoy with tea/coffee supplied). Jennifer and Stuart were incredibly welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to make us feel special. That's something you don't encounter often. We were given the option of eating in at night there or going out - there was no pressure to stay for a meal but we were happy to and so glad we did. Jennifer is an amazing cook, there is no doubt about that. The location was quiet, the feeling was one of home. We wished we had stayed longer here, but had pre-booked all our accommodation so had to move on - reluctantly. It was divine and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: Could there be a bad room? I doubt it. We had the front room and it was beautiful, a family was appa...

A beautiful recently converted house in the countryside, a few miles from Romsey. Lovely bedroom with a very comfortable bed and luxury wet room. Hosts were delightful; lots of info on the area and willing and able to accommodate special dietary needs. Lots of choices for breakfast and delicious evening meals if required - nothing to much trouble. Will definitely stay again.

This beautiful house is set back in quiet surroundings with superb views. Our room was fabulous. Modern, exceptionaly clean, sumptious bed and linens, great bathroom and shower, endless tea and/or coffee with beautifully filtered water. Jennifer, Stuart and Allie are perfect hosts and it soon becomes 'home from home' with no request being too big or too small. You feel special from the moment you arrive. Dinner was beautiful and the produce used for all meals is of an exceptionally high quality. We stayed in the ROSE room. Its at the back of the house with stunning views over the fields behind the property. We also said that the easiest way to remember the room was by its initials: Romantic Oppulent Secluded Everything you would want - just perfect.

This is a delightful B&B where the room we stayed in was of a very high quality. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom clean and modern. In fact the whole place was spotless. Breakfast was very good indeed and Jenny, Stuart and their lovely daughter Ally made us feel very welcome. The house is very eco-friendly too. If only all B&Bs were of this quality...

Room Tip: The Rose room has a lovely view.

Stayed in Willow Bank House in January whilst on business.
Located in the countryside, it's only 10 minutes by car into Romsey.
Newly decorated rooms are immaculate. Also had use of a large lounge if I desired.
Large bed was very comfortable and dressing gown supplied too.
Well looked after by owners, especially at breakfast - choice of fruit juices, cereals, fruit, cheese, cold meats and yoghurt, followed by a full English with black pudding too. All washed down with fresh coffee. Lovely!
Would I go back again? Definitely.
Can't fault the place at all. The best B&B I've stayed in.
Oh, and the pub 1 mile down the road is great too.

Room Tip: I looked in all of the rooms with a view to staying again. All exactly the same standard. One room i...

We stayed at Willow Bank in July 2011 and were made to feel very welcome. The decor is beautiful and Jenny and Stuart are great hosts, making us feel very welcome. Breakfast could not be faulted. I'm sure we'll be back.

We have just returned from a 6 night stay whilst visiting family and friends in the area. We were concerned about booking 6 nights in a place that we had never had never stayed before but need not have had any worries. Jennifer and Stuart made us most welcome and could not have been more friendly or helpful. The accomodation is of a very high standard with all mod cons and very comfortable, and. there was a very good breakfast with plenty of choice. Having only been open since April, they are still building up their business and establishing themselves, which I am sure they will soon do. We would certainly stay there again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
