“Don't stay at this b & b in the winter!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012

It was winter, bitterly cold and icy. Both nights I slept in my pj's and a jumper. On the second morning I wanted to be up and out, but the heating in the room didn't come on until 7.45 am and in the bathroom not until 8.15. I needed to shower and wash my hair, but couldn't face such cold conditions, so waited until the radiators made stripping off bearable! Unfortunately that meant missing breakfast. I was expecting an apology but none was forthcoming. I wasn't impressed with the cupboard-like bathroom and the trickling shower anyway, so the decision not to stay here again was an easy one.

Stayed February 2012, travelled with family

A five day stay for a training course so I wanted parking , wifi, and a work space. The desk in my room has sea views, the tea tray is overstocked with premium items, breakfast is help yourself to juice and things no small glass rations here. The room is very well thought out with ipod docking station/dvd player/ flat screen Tv, suitable space for clothes and cases and its a thirty second walk to the sea front. I thought about rating it very good and then I thought I could not fault it.

We stayed for 2 nights in July to view the P&O 175yrs Sailaway. Val was very welcoming and our room was lovely. Good situation just along from the sea. Shame about the weather! Val gave us local information. If you are travelling to this area, I would fully recommend a stay with Val and Richard.

I stayed with my partner recently at the West Wind Guest House and can recommend it whole heartedly. We were given a very warm welcome by Val and Richard. All the facilities were excellent and the bedroom spotlessly clean. Lovely home cooked breakfast which was a great way to start the day.

Room Tip: room 4 - a large double aspect room

We spent 4 nights at this little gem. Val and Richard made us feel very welcome.Ideal location on the Solent for walks and restaurants. We were in the UK for a family wedding in Gosport. Everything was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfasts were so good. There is WiFi and plenty of off street parking. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Rooms all quiet. Rooms 4 & 5 have views.

We booked a two night stay at the last minute as we wanted to see my aunt on her 80th birthday what a gem of a place. We were made very welcome from the time we phoned to when we left.Our room number 4 was very spacious and out of one window we could see the sea.It was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was one of the best we have had ( even in at hotels we have stayed in ) it would suit even the hungriest of people plenty of variety. We will be back to the area again and would not think of staying anywhere else. Thank you Val Woods for your hospitality look forward to seeing you again.

After staying at West Wind once we decided to make it our home base for our travels in the UK. We stayed at a few other B&Bs during our trip and we quickly came to realise that West Wind was the best of the lot. Val & Richard are lovely hosts and with their daughter Kim they provided a friendly and helpful service. Breakfast choice is outstanding and the food was always well prepared and presented. We stayed in 3 of the rooms as we came and went and all were a good size and very clean and of high quality. Bathrooms were also nice and roomy with good showers and facilities. Lots of little extras provided by the hosts give this B&B another boost and we could not find even one thing that we would have changed. Close to the sea, the local shops and with off street parking, we would highly recommend West Wind to anyone staying in Lee on the Solent. Will definitely stay again.
