We chose this B&B after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We found it was good, and it did what you'd expect, but didn't quite live up to expectations. It was in an attractive location and we received a friendly welcome. The room was small, the shower/hot tap sporadic, and there was wifi but no code. The breakfast was good,...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry it wasn't quite as you expected. The Coachhouse is a very old building and operates a pump to ensure hot water is at a good pressure but there is a time lag of a few seconds before the water comes out. Wi-Fi code is always available, Its either in the brochure or...

I stayed for a single night at Detling Coach House, while on a business trip at the end of June. I spend a reasonable chunk of my working life visiting different parts of the country, so I fairly regularly stay in hotels & B&Bs, but Detling Coach House was comfortably the best B&B I've ever stayed in. For starters, the...

Stayed one night on the way back from France, and although there were no real problems it did not feel homely like a lot of B&Bs. It was a really strange experience as we did not meet the owners until breakfast the next morning. The owner texted us to say she wouldn't be around and a note was waiting for...

We stayed at Detling Coach House during the Easter weekend. The hosts are warm and accommodating. Rooms are clean and comfortable with good facilities including WiFi. Breakfast is served to order and there is a good selection of cereals. Quiet location which is easy to find. Stayed here last year and plan on returning again next year!

Thank you for your review. We shall investigate the situation to see why there was no hot water in the evening but only hot water in the morning. Again, thank you for your advice about the pillows and will certainly invest in some new ones. We hope the hot water problem in the evening didn’t spoil your stay. Many thanks...
