A fantastic place! From first booking (firstly via email and then via telephone), everything was pretty much perfect. The owner was very helpful as he suggested giving him a bell when I hit a certain point on the motorway network, as at the time we were travelling there would be certain 'pinch points' that would add hours to our journey. In fact after phoning him, he phoned back to say that there was an accident on the M27 and we should maybe try another way - now THAT is customer care!!
The room itself was spotless. We had a ground floor room that had patio doors (lockable) to the covered veranda area. The bathroom was HUGE! A bath you could easily get two in, and a shower you could get 3 or 4 in. The gardens are very nice as well, if you like that kind of thing - and lovely to have a coffee and a cig in at the crack of dawn which is what I do.
The town of Milford On Sea itself is quiet, but not too quiet. Just down the road is the Red Lion pub which also does food, but pretty limited in my opinion. A little further down the road is the Smugglers Inn. We chose to eat there and glad we did - fantastic food.
Mentioned earlier by others was the parking. If staying for one night, it doesn't really cause an issue. You get two hours free anyway and the charging period runs from 9am till 6pm. Hence if you get there for 4 and are gone by 11 - it costs you nothing! I found a place right outside the front door but there is a small car park directly across the road.
All in all - a brilliant place and somewhere I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and visit again.
