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! At the time of our stay the owners Sue and Martin were on holiday, and Susan and Tim took over. Susan and Tim did a really...

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.

Downsview's owners are very friendly and go above and beyond to ensure you have everything for your stay. The rooms are incredibly clean, comfortable beds and bedding. The cooked breakfasts are delicious with a lovely selection. Highly recommended.

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...

My wife and I had our second stay at Downsview a couple of weeks ago and were once again blown away by just how nice this place is. This place is much more than a Guest House, the owners Martin and Sue make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble, they treat you like friends or family...

Nice to arrive, with pretty lights at entrance gate, plenty of parking space in enclosed car-park. Lovely warm, attractive tiled entrance hall. We stayed while the owners were away, the cover managers, Tim and Susan were outstanding hosts. Exceptionally clean room, warm and cosy, plenty of towels, plenty of hot water. The bar is old fashioned in a good way,...
