“short stay”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

I have just read a couple of negative reviews for this bed and breakfast,and find it hard to believe these people actually stayed here,we bookes 2 rooms for one night while we were visiting the area for a wedding,and can honestly say we loved every bit of it from the charming building with the wonky floors to the owners perfect balance of friendlyness and professionalism,we were warmly welcomed from the time we arrived to the time we left,well done Peter.

I booked (and paid in advance) for five nights but only stayed for three. In those three days, the shared bathrooms weren't cleaned, my bedroom wasn't serviced and not a bin in the place (including those in the shared toilets) was emptied. The place is generally very grubby, which is a real shame because this could be a beautiful hotel. Also, the "buffet" breakfast is actually a case of helping yourself to less than appealing food from a fridge that also needed a good clean. Things like a pot of old razors in the shower room, grubby and damp bathmats on the floor and stained bed sheets make this place one of the worst I have ever stayed, so much so, I found a different hotel for the remainder of my stay. Please Peter, make some changes and do your beautiful building justice!

I have stayed at Rothmans on three separate occasions in recent months. During that time, I have also stayed at many other similar establishments across the South East, as a change from the usual chain hotels. This hardly qualifies me as an expert, but I have to say Rothmans compares well with its peers. Perhaps that is because repeat stays tend to bring a sense of the familiar, but in any event the rooms are comfortable and spacious, the breakfast has great variety and is plentiful and nutrious, essential Wifi is complimentary and works well (which isn't a given in lots of B&Bs), and although the bathroom facilities are shared I have never "bumped into anyone else on the landing". I also like the fact that there's a decent pub but a short walk away serving decent food at the price point, and real ale! I will return again when in the area.

Room Tip: Georgian room is a twin and more spacious than Edwardian - both both fine for a single traveler.

I stayed at the Bed and Breakfast for four weeks in April. I spent most of my time solo in the Edwardian room, but also enjoyed the Four Poster bedroom for a couple of nights with my girlfriend.

The house is beautiful with a large garden and plenty of facilities. There are three shared bathrooms, and some of the rooms have ensuites. Peter is an excellent host - welcoming and accomodating.

Edwardian:

The Edwardian is a cosy room with TV, wardrobe and desk. It was everything I needed and I was quite comfortable.

Four Poster:

The Four Poster bedroom was very large and included an ensuite. I really loved this room and will be going back in the near future.

The house is kept clean and tidy and the breakfast is tasty.

You can tell from the variety in previous comments that this is not a typical "hotel" experience. What you get from Rothmans is character in a historic property that excudes a homely feel.

I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates something a little different. I can also attest to it's suitability for long-stay accomodation.

A delightful quirky period house with a lovely lived-in feel, so different from multi-storey hotels with their identical rooms and unwelcoming atmosphere. The rooms are all different and have their own individual homely charms. Easy on-site parking. Generous breakfasts cooked to suit guests' tastes and the prices are very reasonable. I use Rothmans several times a year and have never been disappointed!

Room Tip: 'Fourposter' room is large and airy and has very pleasant views that overlook the garden.
