My husband and I stayed at Chad Hill for 3 nights recently. Whilst the decor of the B&B is dated, we didn't feel as though this was a huge problem for us. Our room was adequate and everywhere was clean, but the pillows were rather thin and not very comfortable. The ensuite was very dated, and small, and the door was like that from a wild-west saloon. It didn't lock properly, and had a massive gap at the bottom, both of which lead to a lack of privacy. The water pressure in the shower was minimal. On our second morning I experienced a scalding shower, and then very quickly a freezing shower. I was unable to wash my hair. The hairdryer provided lacked power and heat.
The cooked breakfast was very basic, with what looked (and tasted) like the cheapest ingredients possible. It consisted of one sausage, a rasher of bacon, slice of fried bread, a tinned plum tomato, and a very over cooked fried egg. There were cereals though, and plenty of toast. We didn't eat here in the evenings, but the smells from their evening cooking were not very appealing.
Cannot fault the friendliness of the lady owner, but we did feel a little as though we were intruding when we stopped for a drink in the bar one night. We had to ring the bell several times to get service.
Our last complaint is that we feel as though what is initially offered on a hospitality tray should be replenished if used. It was good to have a bottle of water, but this wasn't replaced, nor were any of the biscuits after our first mornings cup of tea. There were only 2 small cartons of milk provided each day.
Whilst the location is convenient for Sandown, we would not choose to stay here again.
