“Perfect night stay”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

My husband and i stayed at red kite house on our wedding night. we were getting married locally and needed somewhere local to stay for the one night before we went to newforest for our short honeymoon.

we could not fault it. the staff left some nice touches in our room - bubbly and chocolates which was not expected at all. room was very clean and spacious and shower was also clean and powerful !

next morning - the staff were very friendly and breakfast was delicious- locally sourced food and eggs from their own chickens. very yum.!

A difficult to locate B&B, since signage is minimal and darkness makes impossible...I had to ask directions from a local! However, I received a very warm welcome and was shown to a well appointed and clean bedroom, which would have been perfect had it not been for the remnants of a blonde that should have been vacuumed from the bedroom chair.
Breakfast next day was fine and the price represented good value. Lesley tells me that they'll be doing evening meals once they've finished the entire renovation. This will make the overall offer complete. I've got no qualms about enjoying a return stay.

Totally agree with previous review.
Had all the same issues. Impossible to find in the dark. Wifi, even though given the password would not work with phone or laptop. Stayed during a cold snap and the room was COLD. Radiator barely warm and no heating at all in the morning. Shower is in dire need of a booster pump.
Breakfast is OK if you like a big fry up. Plus there was continuing improvement works going on at time of writing.
Having said all that, the rooms are finished to a very high standard and once finished and problems sorted out could make a very good B&B.

The rooms were lovely - of a very high standard for a B&B - spacious, beautifully decorated, with comfy beds. And breakfast was delicious!

But:

(1) We spent ages driving up and down the road looking for a house as described on the website: "in the evening you will find blue lights to illuminate the entrance" - but there were no blue lights, be warned! (Particularly confusing since at this time of year there were blue Christmas lights on other houses in the street).

(2) There was no password given in the rooms for the wifi so once the owner had retired for the evening we couldn't access it.

(3) No bathmat in my room so a very slippy and dangerous floor when emerging from the shower (though there was a bathmat in my parents' room).

(4) The shower was a pathetic little dribble which was disappointing.

(5) In weather of 4 degrees the heating was barely on in the bedrooms (despite the thermostat being at full) and the radiator in the bathrooms was stone cold the entire time. Freezing!!

BUT ...if these few little snags were sorted this would be a first class B&B.

Stayed December 2011, travelled with family

Absolutely first class. Room tastefully decorated and flat screen tv. Good tea and coffee making facilities with fridge and complimentary mineral water. En suite spotlessly clean and good supply of towels. Although I didn't have the cooked breakfast it looked superb and I will try it on my next visit because we will surely stay here again. Our hostess was totally laid back and made us feel very welcome (thank you). The staff were also very friendly

Room Tip: We stayed in "Marks Room"

Stayed here a while ago and was pleasantly surprised. Although the place was a bit hard to find (no clear signs were visible and it was dark) the tomtom was spot on, parking ok (although when full this may become an issue) and the room an absolute dream. The bed and carpet were fantastic, digital TV great and wifi working! The bathroom was just perfect. Everything was new and shiny. Very good shower, even a fridge in the room with a free bottle of chilled water. I had nothing more to wish for, really. Reception is very personal and friendly. Full English breakfast in the morning, if that's your thing, but cornflakes, yoghurts and juices available as well. I'll stay again.
