What a great B&B. Lovely welome from Michael and Lynn who go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. What a bonus having the swimming pool to help work off that amazing breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

The owners were very welcoming on arrival and throughout our stay. its walking distance to the beach and pubs/restaurants and a short drive to the new forest. However the first night we were put in the highcliffe room and the mattress springs had gone on either side leaving a hugh lump in the middle. We had to turn the mattress over to make it even bearable to sleep on, needless to say it wasn't a very fitful nights sleep. We complained but as they were full had to be moved the next day. To add insult to injury we were charged full price for the first nights stay. The room price of £90 for four poster bed and ensuite (which was tiny with only room for one person at a time) was expensive for what it was. Needless to say you can make your own mind up but I won't be going back there!!

Not amazing but very nice and in a lovely spot. Manager was friendly on arrival and reccomended a fab restaurant within walking distance (the cliff hanger - beautiful food and sea views). Rooms were clean and comfortable (shower not great though). Breakfast good.

Nice pool (although you need to book the time you want to use it as only 4 people allowed in at a time and non residents also use it).

5 min walk to highcliffe castle/gardens and highcliffe beach (beautiful).

Id recommend it as a perfectly good B&B to stay in while visiting Highcliffe and its attractions. Nothing particularly outstanding though.

  • Liked — Location. Helpful staff.
