This is a pleasant B and B which is gradually undergoing updating by the owners. Areas that have been updated have been done well. We had a large room with a four poster bed. The room is OK but would benefit from some remodelling to do justice to what could be a lovely room. Tea and cake served in the garden on arrival was a nice touch and the owners were friendly and helpful. The usual tea and coffee making facilities were provided in the room together with biscuits and nice toiletries. There was a large flat screen TV with a well positioned settee but sadly the TV reception needs technical attention. The bath was large but we had to wait for the immersion to heat the water as we wanted a bath at a time that didn't seem to fit with the hot water settings. (5.30 in the afternoon). Breakfast was good and no problems with the free wi-fi. One complaint as it probably would be for all B and Bs on this road is that the road is the A35 from Southampton to Bournemouth which makes the location very convenient for all that this lovely area has to offer but it is busy and quite noisy and the gravel drive and parking area added to the noise level - nothing too serious just something of which we were aware. I expect there are quieter rooms than the one which we had. The rate we paid was very reasonable and I expect this hotel will continue to improve as the owners work their way round to complete the upgrading. There is an indoor pool but the weather was fantastic and there is so much to do in the area that we didn't want to be inside.
