Good Hotel Guide Review

Guests are full of ‘high praise’ for Tobias Feilke’s ‘personal’ hospitality at his ‘homely’ B&B close to Lymington quay. Tobi ‘made us feel very welcome’, finding time for a ‘friendly chat’ and carrying cases up to the bedroom. As with each of the five rooms, it was ‘certainly not bland’. The Courtyard Suite has pistachio walls, Doric columns, classical art; the Britannia has gold-and-black furnishings, a wrought iron bed with a tasselled canopy; the bright, airy two-storey apartment has enormous windows and a balcony gazing across the quay to the Isle of Wight. The decor is lavish throughout the building, which, apart from a brief spell, has been welcoming guests since opening in 1865. Quirky features abound, from a wall decorated with hats – fedoras and trilbies to conical coolies – to a suit of armour, while a cosy lounge has lush drapes, warm rich hues, plump sofas and a marble fireplace. In the country-style kitchen with green settle and botanical prints, a satisfied reader reports the owner cooked an ‘exceptional’ breakfast, with a continental buffet followed by a full English. Vegans and vegetarians should give advance notice.

Guest comments

'We cannot praise our stay highly enough.We were met by the host Tobias who made us feel very welcome, he took our case up to our room, which was delightful, certainly not a bland impersonal room. The bed, the bedlinen and the towels were of an exceptionally high standard. Breakfast was personally cooked by Tobias at a time that we requested, and again it was exceptional. ' - - June, 2016
'Tobias is an amiable and enthusiastic host who has created a warm and homely environment with quirky decorative furnishings and good attention to detail. Our room was lavishly decorated and had a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast with eggs, delicious local bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and toast. ' - S M - May, 2013
