Recently visited the Boathouse and enjoyed a very pleasant lunch. The food was excellent. Freshly cooked food and really tasty. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Look forward to visiting again next year.

Stayed just the one night, excellent value, we had the bay window room on the first floor and excellent view. Comfy room if not over appointed, clean and fresh. Only criticism would be pillows need renewing as a bit "flat". For a bed and breakfast would recommend. Friendly and helpful team and very nice place. Located in Sea View and...

We have just returned from the Boat House after staying for 4 nights and we had a really lovely time. We arrived at 3pm and were shown straight to our room. The room was clean and well presented and both this and the bathroom were a good size. We did find that the shower lost pressure and heat when more...

We found The Boat House through a recommendation in The Times. We managed to drive past the entrance when we got there, as it is somewhat hidden near a corner of Springvale Road. We did not book ahead for that mid-autumn lunchtime, though attempting that in the summer season would be very risky. Everything was done well. Service was friendly...

With only four bedrooms above a busy dining pub, this is a wonderful place to stay with some rooms having direct views of the beach and the Solent. Young and cheerful staff with good house-keeping and a spectacular range of breakfast choice with a chef on duty first thing to cook everything to order. Evening menu features steaks and fish...

Went here with a group of colleagues and ordered the special - a monkfish tail with seafood chowder. Was surprised to receive the monkfish on the bone with it's tough membrane still in place as well as the bony fins, all of which should have been removed. When asked very quickly if the food was alright, I was clearly not...

Very busy - it appears to present it self as gastro pub, but doesn't live up to these expectations. It was extremely busy and we decided to sit outside. The tables were dirty and needed clearing. Laborious way of ordering - queue once for food and then again for drinks. The sandwiches we had were very nice but when we...

We stayed here for two nights on what was a business trip for my husband while I did a bit of sightseeing. The welcome was friendly and efficient, our room was a delight. The best room in the house, with a view over the beach and Solent, and utterly delightful decor. The bed was immensely comfortable, the bed linen was...
