Reviewed 22 August 2014

Lovely room and delightful breakfast. Jean is such a treasure!
11 out of 10!! We would be most happy to return. Restaurant in village top class, ask Jean. Easy access from all around and lots to do and see.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

Jean came to my rescue when I needed somewhere in Botley to stay while I was between houses. Although it was short notice Jean managed to squeeze me in and did everything she could to make me comfortable, and I really appreciated being able to come and go without feeling I was disturbing anyone. If you have pets, Jean doesn't just "not mind" them, she positively loves them! Otters' Green is in Botley, close to the local shops, pubs and restaurants, and only a few minutes walk from the railway station but the setting down a quiet leafy lane, nestled in a pretty garden, makes it feel like it is in the middle of the countryside. It is very close for anyone with children at camp at Fairthorne, and there is an equestrian centre nearby. However, it is Jean herself who makes this tranquil retreat such a lovely place to stay.

Having read previous reviews, we were disappointed with the poor standard of cleanliness and the so called "continental breakfast" in a garden shed. Not enough seating or crockery for all 4 rooms in use at the weekend. Not helped by mini beasts in the breakfast "room" including a fly in the honey pot left out. However, the location was super, though on the Saturday night, not quiet.

Room Tip: Landlady was using her own bedroom as another guest room whilst we were there. Small rooms.

I stayed at Otters' Green for a week while I was working in Botley and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The rooms are in a converted stable block, so you can come and go as you please. I like to feel independent so this was a big plus for me. The room was cool, light and airy with a small but perfectly functional en suite bathroom. The bed was comfy. I enjoyed eating my breakfast at the little table on the patio outside my room. The Granary (several steps away) would have been a cosy alternative in bad weather. This wooden breakfast cabin is quite basic but that's where it's charm lies. Jean (the landlady) was welcoming and helpful without being overbearing. She's an interesting lady who has travelled extensively. The location is ideal for Botley - a 3 minute bike ride got me to work each morning. I can't comment on the value for money because my employer was paying the bill. I will most certainly go back to Otters' Green if I work in Botley again

We stayed here with our Labrador for a night and were really impressed with the warm welcome (including dog treats!) and lovely location. The veranda outside the rooms and granary breakfast area give you some privacy from the main house and we would definitely stay here again

My partner and I stayed at Otters Green B&B Saturday evening as we had attended a wedding about 5 minutes drive away.. We had a lovely warm welcome from Jean who gave us our key and showed us to our room... And we were also offered a hot breakfast for the following day fresh eggs and muffins.. The little Granary was a quaint little place where you could help yourself to breakfast, tea and coffees etc..
Since Jean took over running and managing Otters Green 12 months ago it has obviously bought the much needed customer service and quality that has generated our enthusiasm to recommend Otters Green..Thankyou ever so much Jean you really made our stay very relaxing XxX
