Needs Attention

When we arrived we were given a ground floor room where the toilet backed onto a car repair yard.

There was no blind on the window and although the window was frosted glass we could clearly be seen from the outside. They changed our room, both rooms were in need of re decoration and a good clean.

Decent value

Needed a stop over at late notice and this was decent value.

I was in the annex which was quiet. Room and bathroom a little tired but perfectly comfortable for one with plenty of hot water and working TV. They have a restaurant but I ate in the bar. Pub food nicely presented and cooked, good range of beers. At breakfast the choice of cereals was half hearted, but again, the cooked breakfast was excellent.

Would use again on business.

Unhappy customer

I was travelling with my son, grandson and one other, we were met at reception by a very unhappy person who I took to be the manager.

We were dressed for a shooting trip and maybe she doesn`t like shooters. The beds were not comfortable at all, there were springs that clunked every time you turned over, they are in urgent need of replacement. On our second night we entered the restaurant at 8-30 pm for dinner, whilst waiting to order the young lady who was waiting on approached us to tell us that my grandson ,who is 12, would have to leave the table and return to the room at 10-00. We decided to take our custom elsewhere, namely the curry house across the way where they didn`t have a problem with a 12 years old dining all night. I don't think the waitress was to blame, this was a message from the manager. The breakfast was excellent and the service that we received from the rest of the staff was very good, however, we will not be returning. This was my fourth stay at this hotel/pub and the second visit with my grandson.

A welcome break

After a long day on the road this was a very welcome break, very happy and friendly staff that explained everything and made me feel welcome.

The Christmas decorations made for a great atmosphere, comfortable room with everything I needed. The accommodation was away from the bar so no late night noise, just great!

Short breakaway near Southdowns

Nice period building in good village location.

Easy access to A3 to London or Portsmouth / Soutsea. Pleasant staff serving nice quality breakfast selection (included in room rate). On site car parking. Would stay here again if in the area.

Friendly and helpful staff checked us in.

Our room was clean and comfortable in a quiet extension away from the public house. It was basic, with limited space in the bathroom, but we wanted inexpensive accommodation within easy distance of the car ferry port for an overnight stop. At breakfast we had full English which came with excellent, friendly service. (We would have preferred a bit less fatty cut of bacon instead of the streaky bacon served) but overall a very tasty and enjoyable breakfast.
