“The best B&B ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2010

We have literally just arrived home from a relaxing short break and were lucky enough to book the Yacht room at Croftside. On arrival we were greeted by Sue with a big smile and shown straight to the lovely airy room which had enough space for two seats and a table. I LOVED the walk in wardrobe (Tom now has to build me one)! The bathroom was clean and it was a delight to find that the lovely scent in the bathroom was actually the soap made from essential oils! I had a lovely long bath in the bath salts provided - fabulous! It was a needed break and Sue & Geof are so lovely and friendly that they somehow found themsleves helping us out on the first morning with ideas for our wedding which had been causing us such stress, I have to add their input was so welcome and has really helped us to make some decisions! A lovely place to stay, wonderful hosts who make you feel at home and an fabulous breakfast to boot. You couldn't do better and I have stayed at hotels and B&B's around the world. Well worth the visit! Look forward to going back in the summer :) PS the plum jam at breaksfast is home made and out of this world! Thanks!

We were visiting relatives in Chichester, and decided to try this B & B after reading the fantastic reviews. We stayed in one of the double rooms, which had all been beautifully decorated with a lovely style of individual decor. The breakfast was fantastic and served in relaxing conservatory overlooking the garden. Geoff and Sue are great hosts and we would happily recommend Croftside to friends.

I had the misfortune of staying in this overpriced B&B. the bedroom was tiny with barely place to walk around the bed. the 'quirky' bathroom had a sloping celing , to take a shower you have to bend over, water pressure was terribly low. the 'home made soap' was a sliver that just would not foam. the bedroom was cold and i got a chest infection while staying for four nights. the only time i saw the owner was the day i was leaving to pay the remainder of the bill. not even once was i asked how the stay was etc and no help offered to me the night i arrived struggling with three bags of various sizes to an upstairs bedroom.

Croftside, Owner at Croftside B & B Chichester, responded to this review, 8 March 2010
As a Bed & Breakfast we endeavour to give all our guests a pleasurable stay.

When guests stay on a 'room only' basis - leave early in the morning and return late at night - interaction is not easy.

In these cases, for the comfort and daily 'welcome' of guests in winter, each night we close the curtains (or blinds), put on the lights and ensure the room is adequately heated ready for their arrival. It is a shame the guest did not inform us they required additional heating, as it is available on request.

Additional bedding is always in the rooms as standard.

The bathroom indeed does have a sloping ceiling, adding to its character, the handshower is designed to be used for hairwashing, after or during, a long soak in the full sized bath.

The homemade guests soaps prove so popular that guests frequently request to take some home.

All our bedrooms have high quality kingsize beds as standard, with ample (min 1.5m) additional clear space on three sides.

Fortunately most of our guests thoroughly enjoy their stay - many returning again and again.

They tell us 'how hospitable' we have been, given them 'the best breakfast in years' and compliment our rooms, our home and its design.

As the saying goes 'you can't please all of the people - all of the time' however hard you might try.....

My husband and I had the great pleasure in staying here for 3 nights and I must say if far exceeded our expectations. It was modern, clean and although a bed and breakfast, very private. Geoff and Sue could not do enough to help and the breakfasts were superb. We had a wonderful time staying here and would advise anyone who may be considering a stay in Chichester, look no further, you won't find better......

I want the world to know that Croftside Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The bed was as comfortable as my own (which, if you're anything like me, I usually never sleep well away from home because there's no bed like your own bed...).
The owners, Sue and Geoff made us feel like we'd known them for our whole lives, which is an art in itself. It really did feel like we were staying at a friends house - the only difference being, friends don't usually charge!!
The breakfast was outstanding - my hubby is a masterchef, so needless to say, he is hard to please. We were thrilled with the choice, quality and presentation of the breakfasts. Full marks to Geoff!
Finally, the accommodation itself is cosy and - most importantly - spotless. My mother is a "white glove" lady, and even she would have been impressed!!
Based just 4 miles from our son and daughter-in-law, it was ideally located for us to visit them and our new grandaughter.
We shall definately stay again - provided there's a room available!

After visiting Croftside B&B for a couple of nights we realized how stunning Birdham and the surrounding country side really is. The B&B was hidden behind hedges just set off the main road running in to Witterings. Its location was perfect for everything that we wanted to see, local pubs, restaurants, Chichester Harbor, the sandy beaches of Witterings are in arms reach. From Croftsides you can enjoy walks to Dell Quay, Chichester Marina, Birdham etc. Chichester town center is literally 15 mins away by Bus or Car. The B&B itself was just right, enough for you to feel secluded from all the hustle and bustle of busy city life. Geof and Sue made us feel extremely welcome, they even bought us a pot of tea to our room when we arrived. The rooms were immaculate, spacious, well decorated and clean. Breakfast was served in there conservatory which over looked there lovely garden and is something not to be missed. We found both Sue and Geof very helpful and gave us plenty of tips of all the places worth visiting. All in all we had a fantastic time here and would recommended Croftside to anyone of any age.
