Nice but too expensive
Stayed for one night during an exhibition taking place in Southampton. Host couple were very nice and the service was good. Cooked breakfast rather than a buffet - I wasn't in a hurry so it worked for me. Had the price been closer to £50 I would have considered it good value for money, but at £75 it was too expensive compared to what it was.

Great breakfast and friendly hosts.
This is a small hotel or arguably a B&B as it only has 5 rooms. The owners were very helpful and attentive and the breakfast was superb, catering for our vegetarian and gluten-free needs. The location is great only yards from the New Forest and with several cafes and restaurants within walking distance. One downside for us were the room (#5) was tiny for a double and the smallest ensuite I have seen outside of Japan. The bed wasn't comfortable either. Lastly, and I guess this is arguably not a requirement when on vacation, is that the wifi was so slow as to be virtually unusable. I feel that in this day and age that if there is a service provided it should be at least useable even if not high speed. The owners were very friendly and we would stay there again

Comfortable room but let down by the bathroom
We had a friendly welcome from the hosts on arrival. The breakfast was good on both mornings of our stay - lots of choice and good quality food. The bedroom was warm and comfortable. Unfortunately our stay was let down by the bathroom which was cold and dated. The water pressure in the shower was low. The towels and bathroom mat were small and worn. Also one of these had a large stain.

Quiet and comfortable weekend break
Really comfortable stay with lovely hosts. The bathroom was very small and basic but not a problem for our short stay. We were worried when we arrived that it might be noisy being next to a main road, but it was blissfully quiet actually. Lovely breakfast too.

a good place to stay
we had a good stay at this B & B and were well looked after, the breakfast was of a good quality and well cooked , the room was spacious and the area was nice and quiet and we would stay again , the only slight thing that would have improved our stay would have been a decent power shower and a tv that is a little bigger than a laptop.
