Very pleasant. The owners were very welcoming with the personally prepared breakfast. Back garden with seating and views of countryside...shame it was raining, otherwise would have enjoyed it more. Highly recommended.

Friendly and helpful staff with a great breakfast the next day . Having a room with our own front door was a real plus as we came home late after dinner with friends and didn't have to worry about waking anyone ! A brilliant location for sailing or visiting Chichester . Had a peep in another room the Sail Loft as we left , very nice with a seaside theme.

We toured Uk for 3 months: We mostly stayed in B&B accommodation.
The boat shed at Bosham was great. We stayed in the loft style studio :bedroom upstairs & bathroom down stairs; we had our own private entry adjoining the quaint garden; everything was perfect; beautifully decorated; very comfy bed; & no expense spared on quality linen/towels-etc;
Our breakfast was delicious & very filling - fresh ground coffee - etc:
Our hosts were friendly& very delightful- we could have stayed all day & talked & talked!
We were having trouble booking our next town B&B - there was a horse show in town plus school holidays! So Kevin did a few ring arounds his friends & found our next accommodation for us!
This B&B is situated on a busy road, but,we weren't disturbed by any noise. It was pleasant to look through our window & see rural farms. We loved our visit at the Boatshed - & if we were to pass by again we would definitely come back & stay! Don't ever judge places on their outward appearances :::: because sometimes there is pleasant surprise awaiting inside!!! And this was one of the places. Highly recommended!

We were looking for a night's stay near Chichester and were very glad that we found the Boathouse on the web. We had a really good night's sleep on a lovely comfy bed. The breakfast was superb and the welcome was second to none.

The room and especially the bed (electrically controlled!) was excellent. The shower room was small but perfectly adequate and the breakfast was very good indeed - not quite Tortworth Court Hotel standard (our gold standard for breakfasts!) but a nice light and airy breakfast room with views over the garden and fields beyond and as much tea as we could drink and a flavourful full English with locally sourced ingredients! The only thing that stopped it getting five stars was the list of rules in the 'handbook' in the room - it made us feel a bit on edge in case an accident occurred during our stay.

Room Tip: The rooms are very like self contained apartments with their own private patio area . The local pub...

Stayed in the top room in the annexe, which contains possibly the most comfortable bed I've ever been in. The room was spacious and quiet, the breakfast was staggering and the welcome from the owners second to none. The Boathouse is my first port of call when in the area.
