Nice quiet location , room clean and warm , really nice towels . bathroom is a bit worn but still it was clean and comfortable . Excellent for price and breakfast was good , also the evening meal we had was very good .The reason for the visit was we have relatives in the area .
Stayed here for 1 night as we was catching a ferry to isles of white the next day. We chose this place because it was great value for money and was not too far to the car ferry port. Enjoyed the cooked breakfast in the morning there was a great choice on the menu This pub and rooms are very haunted I saw a ghost looking over my wife in room 22 and the female bar toilets are haunted my wife said the taps all turned on by themselves we talked to one of the staff members they also witnessed paranormal activities in room 24 and in the bar area. This accommodation is recommend for people who look for value in money and not worried about all the little things to be fair rooms are a bit dated but I was More then satisfied with everything.
We ate all our meals in The Ship And Bell as the food was good and the staff very helpful ,the room was a bit small and does need up grading but we enjoyed our stay We thought the morning staff ....only one was a bit rushed off her feet trying to manage reception and breakfasts required an assistant,
The breakfast was good the hotel was convenient and the staff were helpful and friendly. The twin room I had booked was on the 2nd floor up 2 narrow flights of stairs which made it difficult to get the luggage up and it was extremely hot. We ate at the Premier Inn opposite with our friends who were enjoying aircon!! Take a hairdryer with you and don't expect wifi if you're in the annex and make sure you request a ground floor room if you are our age and not youngsters!!!!
Horndean is a small village has plenty of places to eat/takeaway a local supermarket/post office More places about mile up road Ship and Bell also do food Indian Palace was lovely food too . We used it as a base as we were meeting up with family at Southsea etc Portsmouth is not far had great day there . Also Marwell Zoo is only 25 minutes away
