The warm friendly welcome was a great start with free secure parking also. The room was very comfortable and well equipped and I enjoyed a good night's sleep. The breakfast was exceptional and overall fantastic value for money. I could not fault it in any way and I have already booked up for a return stay.

Stayed here with my sister whilst visiting my daughter and attending a concert she was in. The owner was helpful allowing us to check in early and guaranteeing a parking space. The rooms were warm, clean and comfortable. The guest house itself was quiet which ensured a good night's sleep. A substantial breakfast was included in the price and the...

The room we were given was beautifully decorated, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom immaculate. It had everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast was delicious and the owner and her staff could not have been...

We stayed here as I was having an operation the following morning at southampton General hospital. I was extremely nervous and was made to feel completely at ease by the lovely lady running the accommodation. Our room was lovely and homely which is just what I needed to make me feel comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and great value for...

I wanted a cheap option for a single room for one night and this looked good. I wasn't disappointed: in fact I was delighted! Really warm, comfortable, cosy room, really nice welcome and excellent hospitality. The breakfast was first-class - better than I'd had in a 4* hotel a few days earlier. Lots of fresh fruit and perfectly cooked scrambled...

Stayed at this B&B whilst visiting our son at Southampton University. It is located very close to his hall of residence, which is one of the reasons we chose it. It is a pretty standard British B&B - not a boutique hotel - but it's a pretty good one and has much to recommend it. Firstly the delightful owner, AJ,...
