Solent View is located in Warsash. The property is 16 miles from Winchester. Towels and bed linen are offered. We had a lovely stay and the hosts are fabulous. The bed was very comfortable and the ensuite bathroom was great. Lovely effect of lights around room. Although breakfast isn't advertised, we were delighted that this was provided. We had a lovely walk down to the Hamble River, and the yachting Marina. Enjoyed a quiet drink and pleasant walk back. This was easy access from Solent View. We will stay again and thank you to the Solent View for a very pleasant stay.
Our main reason for staying was to attend the Southampton Boat Show. This Guest House meant we could use the Hythe Ferry, and not get stuck driving in Southampton's heavy traffic. Convenience was therefore very good. Reviews we read before booking rated the Guest House highly, and that is why we booked. We fully realise that since early 2020, life for the owners of such properties has been very difficult. Even now sensible restrictions remain, and we fully complied, wearing a mask whenever out of our room. We perhaps expected too much. However, a friend runs a very successful B&B in mid Devon, at a similar cost to the Walcot House. She has won awards, and the standards of her rooms (in an old farmhouse), and the breakfast supplied to guests, is far and away superior to our experience at Fawley. The owners of Walcot House we are sure, are trying very hard, but the experience for us as guests was rather uninspiring, lacking any warmth, and no apologies for a faulty bathroom light (bulb replaced), and the lack of hot water on the last morning. We are sorry to be writing in this way, but hope that these comments can be seen as constructive, rather than merely complaining.
There is off road parking situated in a lovely quite area. No local amenities within walking distance such as shop pub or resturant. The b and b itself is clean and well presented if a little dated with decor. Room was a good size all you would expect to be present. Nice size shower with good water pressure and temp. Bed was incredibly uncomfortable I ended up sitting in the chair and dozing. The morning breakfast supplied was superb and lots to choose from all of greay quality.
Excellent breakfast. The hotel was immaculately clean.
