“Tucked away and very peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

We spent three days here last week and really enjoyed it. The hotel is quite old fashioned and our room was very small, but we managed, although opening a luggage rack proved to be impossible, if you wanted to go the bathroom, which was almost the same size as the bedroom. We were lucky to be on the ground floor with a patio area, with the doors open, it felt a bit less claustrophobic..The main restaurant is very good and the food most enjoyable. However, although the waiters were very helpful, they were not allocated to specific tables,so things got very confusing and it all seemed, because they were busy, to be more a case of crisis management. This may be the fault of the Restaurant Manager, we weren't sure. Breakfast was the least successful, because the buffet table was very dull - the whole thing needs upgrading. The cooked breakfast was very nice, but again not special. We would go back but we'd make sure we had a bigger room.

Room Tip: We would recommend room 33 or the garden suite.

Dear tiskerman
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay with us. I am sorry that you found your room to be very small. All of the rooms are different sizes and also individually decorated, so please do not hesitate to speak with one of our receptionists when you next book with us, and they will be able to advise you of the different rooms which may suit you better. We are pleased that you enjoyed the food, though sorry that you found the service to be confusing. The size and nature of the restaurant means that we do not allocate tables to the waiters, and instead they work together as a team to serve the entire restaurant and this usually works very well. I am sorry that on this occasion, you felt that the service was not as expected. We hope to be able to welcome you back again very soon.

An excellent hotel which we revisited in May 2014. Ideal location. Pleasant gardens surround the hotel. First class dining experience. Excellent for visiting local attractions including Portsmouth Dockyard. Will certainly visit again.

Stayed for 2 Night's during bank holiday weekend. Excellent service and the restaurant food very pleasant.
A great spot for exploring the Chichester Harbour area.
We used the hotel as a base from which we went to Goodwood races only 20 mins drive away.

Just an overnight stop but very pleased we stayed here. Hotel staff couldn't be more helpful; restaurant food excellent value; room very spacious with huge bed. Bosham itself is lovely; the low to high tide transformation is stunning.

A set menu with great food however not much choice. If you are an adult it's great but if you have fussy children I would not recommend going as they won't like the food on offer. However the scenery and staff where very helpful and they knew everything that was going on overall if you don't have kids 5 stars but for a family occasion it is only 4.

Dear andrewjarmaine
We are pleased that you thought the food was great, though sorry that it did not suit your children. We do offer a separate children’s menu alongside the Millstream’s 2 AA rosette menu, and the chefs are always prepared to serve plainer dishes when requested. We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Millstream again soon, and please do not hesitate to discuss the different options for children’s meals with the restaurant manager who will be happy to advise you of any suitable alternatives.

The Millstream Hotel looked very nice from what my wife and I could see when we found it on the internet whilst looking for somewhere to stay in or near Chichester. We usually look for B&B in the £80 - £100 per night bracket but, unusually 'flush with cash', (relatively speaking - we are not rich!), we decided to try something much more expensive and 'took the plunge', booking four nights here.
Reflecting on our stay we can honestly say it was a very positive experience, from the politeness of the staff to the dining experience and on to our room, which was spotlessly serviced, spacious, and comfortable. Also, as a base from which to explore the surrounding area it is ideally located. We would re-visit again if ever we found ourselves looking for accommodation in this area.

Room Tip: The hotel has a pleasant garden with a stream running through it. Some rooms overlook the garden, ot...

Went back to the Millstream Hotel where I started in the Hotel & Catering Industry 30 years ago!!

The Hotel has changed dramatically since I was there, but is still an important piece of the quaintness of Old Bosham!!

The rooms are very nicely laid out & equipped with all the extras you'd expect!! Food was fantastic & had a lovely breakfast in the morning!!

Nice to see my old Boss John Wild, definitely a well worth hotel to stay at!! Keep it going John!!

Dear jonham
We are so pleased that you came back to where you started in the industry after 30 years, and that the hotel is still in the same family, run by John Wild. The hotel has grown so much over the years, and many of our guests have enjoyed seeing it develop. We are so pleased that you had such a lovely stay and hope that you will visit us again soon.

The Millstream nestles in the heart of Old Bosham, an historic village on the shores of Chichester Harbour, combining the elegance of a small English country house with the character and charm of an eighteenth century malthouse cottage.The Bar offers a cosy fireside setting in which to relax.

The Gardens that surround the hotel are carefully tended and provide a wonderful place to relax in the warmer weather. Overlooking the stream in the side garden is an oak Gazebo which was built for a Wild family wedding and which now provides shelter from the rain or sun. In the summer months there are tables and chairs at which you can enjoy morning coffee, a light lunch, afternoon tea, a cocktail before dinner or an al fresco meal as the sun comes down. ... more   less
