A good standard room with a comfortable bed, small but adequate en-suite, clean and tidy with everything you need for an overnight stay. There is a guest kitchen with a fridge and fresh milk for tea and coffee. The optional "continental" breakfast is good, with plenty of choice, but we felt that the "full English" was somewhat over-priced.

The perfect guest house. Very friendly owners. My wife, daughter and I stayed for one night and had a fantastic nights sleep. The place is very clean and tidy with all the little extras that make the difference. We were able to sit out in the very spacious rear garden over looking the Downs. There are a nimder of garden...

Knocks the spots off the other places to stay in the area – trust me in this as I have stayed at quite a few of them which are either overpriced and half as nice as Downsview or just frankly appalling. This place, however, is absolutely brilliant value. Rooms large, very comfortable and spotless, big TV, fridge and loads of...

What a great place to stay. We stopped over for a night and where amazed by the hosts and the way this place was looking. Nice atmosphere in the hotel and nice, clean and well-sized rooms. Nothing was missing and if we should be around we would always stay here again!- Thank you!

Owners couldn't be more helpful. Booked friends in here, picked up the keys early as friends arriving at 1:30am. Breakfast was great: leave your order the night before and they deliver what you wanted at the time you wanted. Bar is really comfortable (bottles and cans with a wide selection of spirits). If you want a pub instead then there's...

From January 3 – 6 2017 we and our three children (aged 10 – 16) stayed at Downsview. We had the beautiful, large and fully equipped two bedroom top floor apartment. What a comfort!

Downsview was easy to find. I received a warm and friendly welcome. My room was spacious and clean with en-suite facilities. I slept well in the comfortable bed. I certainly must mention the excellent breakfast.

We stopped at Downsview to break our long journey from home to Provence. We were extremly impressed with the warm welcome and all the facilities. The emphasis was certainly on comfort and the owners could not be more helpful and attentive. The welcoming drink at the bar was an added bonus after our long journey. We cannot recommend Downsview more...
