Due to our daughter relocating to Stubbington, we needed to find a b&b at short notice in the Lee-on-the-Solent area. My future son-in-law emailed a number of establishments in the area, however all were full due to the weekend of our stay coinciding with the start of Cowes week. He eventually found Chester Lodge, and the proprietor replied explaining that she had a cancellation and would be able to accommodate us.

Well, where to begin? Jenny and Keith are by far the nicest, welcoming and most friendly proprietors we've met, and we've stayed throughout the UK. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless, well-furnished and decoration was up to date (nothing shabby here despite the credit crunch!) The comfortable king size bed was made with fresh linen, and the pillows plumped ready for a good night's sleep. The carpet was spotless and sumptuous beneath our feet. Dimmable personal wall lamps on each side of the bed were excellent whether you wanterd to read or just watch the television. A courtesy tray was provided, and well stocked with all the usual you would expect, and there was even a bottle of mineral water provided to take with you if required.

The ensuite was spotless, and fitted to a fine standard, however we found it a little small for us (although we've seen smaller!) Electric shower provides abundant hot water, and toiletries such as shampoo and shower gel is also provided, and can be found on the glass shelves. Handwash is provided via a very nice wall mounted dispenser.

There is a wall mounted hairdryer provided for those who would require it.

Now the important part, the breakfast! Choices are made on a form provided the day before, and you mark off what you would like for breakfast. A standard full English consisted of two bacon, two eggs, two hash browns, sausage, mushrooms, tomato (fresh or tinned) and beans, although you could mark the form to indicate you only required one instead of two of the above items. A full range of cereals is also provided, as is fruit juice and as much tea or coffee as you require. Toast arrives in abundance, and can be enjoyed with a variety of jams or marmalade. The dining room is well appointed, and individual tables-for two-provide a personal experience rather than some establishments which put all guests on one table. Quiet background music is provided, or Keith can turn on the television should you wish to watch the morning news while you breakfast. Another nice touch are the little ceramic ‘table bins’ – to put your empty sugar wrappers and butter wrappers in. Nice.

All in all this is certainly one of the best if not the best B&B we’ve ever stayed at, and with the tariff at £69 for a one-night or £62 for two or more nights (August 2013) it represented fantastic value for money – in fact, I don’t know how they can make money at those prices!

We hope to return in the future – and highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for accommodation in the Lee-on-the-Solent area.

This has to be the best B&B my wife and I have ever stayed at. We tend to stay at hotels as many Bed and Breakfast establishments dont offer the same standards....not so at Chester Lodge.
Jennie and Keith offer the warmest of welcome, the room cannot be described as anything other than 5 star - Supremely comfortable, extremely well presented, clean , tidy, and with all the amenities, including WiFi.
The room rates were very competitive and in my opinion the proprietors are under charging. Breakfast was included in our price and is by far the best breakfast we have had in any hotel with a huge choice. The final cherry on the cake is the location, perfectly situated not too far from local amenities, yet far enough to offer a tranquil setting on the coast.
All in all, you cant get better. Thanks to Jennie and Keith, our 5 night stay was superb. We will definitely book again when we're in the area.

Room Tip: Extremely high standards, you will not be disappointed with any room.

We are hotel people with my husband working for British Airways and I was a consultant in a london hotel so we are not familiar with b and b's, but my goodness Jennie and Keith run a superb establishment.Nothing was too much trouble,they were friendly and very attentive to detail and cleanliness.The decor was pleasant, the en-suite though a tad small was adequate for our needs.The breakfast matched that of some of the nicest hotels and was delicious and nicely presented.If they could find the time to lay the gardens properly I think they would be run off their feet (if they aren't already!) . I would recommend anyone to stay here and have done so with friends who will be with them in the next couple of weeks. Well done Jennie and Keith..

I first visited this B&B in 2009. It was such an excellent establishment that when, four years later, there was a need for an overnight stay in Lee-on-the-Solent again, Chester Lodge came immediately to mind. Once again, it was a very good choice - friendly hosts; a very comfortable room and a high quality breakfast.

nice b&b run by friendly couple producing beautifully cooked breakfasts using excellent ingredients ; amongst the best i have had anywhere

only criticism might be that the room was a little small though well presented with every amenity you would expect and neat and very clean
