Looking for a nice hotel near Andover I happened to find Gunville House. What a find it turned out to be! A very quiet and rural location, with beautiful views of the surrounding fields. Enough free parking right in front of the house. The owners are very hospitable and will make sure your stay is comfortable. The bedroom is spacious with a nice en-suite bathroom with shower over bath. Wifi worked very well and was free of charge.
Tessa suggested a nice local pub for dinner when I arrived around 7PM and breakfast the next morning was delicious.
Certainly a place to come back to, even for a short holiday in the area.
If you need a single room in this area then look no further. Spacious, en-suite, wonderful view and a fridge in the room! For B&B single room accommodation this is right up there with the very best. Superb breakfast from 7am and a most pleasant owner. You will not be disappointed, I assure you. (There are doubles available too and I'd guess they are similar quality.)
Prior to our arrival on 05/11/15 I received a text message from the hostess (Tessa) with detailed directions to Gunville House, which was very useful indeed.
Gunville House is situated at the end of a lane, making it very quiet and serene.
Our room, and all the public rooms, were very clean.
Tessa, who meet us as we arrived, was extremely pleasant and helpful during our stay.
Our room was tastefully decorated, with all mod cons plus a lounge area for relaxing in.
Breakfast was very good with lots of home-made options available.
Overall, highly recommended.
Tessa, the Gunville House owner (a title shared with her husband and Black Lab "Nogbad the Bad"), runs a lovely B&B. Located at the end of an unmarked lane a few miles/kilometres southwest of Andover, Gunville House is a thatched home. The quiet and nicely-appointed guest room is separate from the main house and is accessible from the spacious car park. Tessa offers a comprehensive selection of breakfast items that are selected from a pick-list the evening before and served the next morning in an airy solarium. While drifting in and out with food, she offers suggestions of nearby dinner choices. Be sure to ask about the family history, as her Father-in-Law had quite a military career. At time of writing, Tessa was only entertaining midweek visitors.
Stayed here for one night and really enjoyed our visit. Good, quiet location at the end of a lane overlooking fields of barley. Lovely surroundings - especially sitting in the sun in the gorgeous garden. Very comfortable, large bed, clean and cosy room with tea and coffee facilities. Tessa & Rupert were very welcoming and made us feel totally at home. Breakfast was really tasty with a good choice: fruit, juice, cereal, and the usual cooked food. Would certainly stay here again as it's in a perfect location for a stop en route to Devon or Cornwall and not far off the A303.
