“Truly delightful stay with wonderful welcoming hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

I'd never seen a place on Tripadvisor with all 5 star reviews before. Having tried it and stayed there, I am no longer surprised, just converted!

Amazing hosts, so welcoming (including cake on arrival), wonderfully accommodating when we had some major train delays and so arrived a lot later than expected. The room was absolutely gorgeous -- lovely views, beautifully furnished (tall four poster bed) and the bathroom really nice too (the only tiny criticism being that the shower was a little temperamental in terms of maintaining a consistent temperature...).

Breakfast the next morning was delicious & generous, and Sally was even kind enough to get gluten free options for my wife so she could enjoy it all too.

Unreservedly recommend and now need to find more excuses to visit Gosport so we can stay again!

A really lovely B&B with views of the Isle of Wight. The owners could not be more welcoming and accommodating with tea and cake on arrival and offers of lifts, plus a delicious breakfast menu. Definitely the nicest B&B I have ever stayed at!

Believe everything you have read in these reviews. One night was not enough to enjoy all the Windbrake House has to offer. A 5 star B&B beautifully furnished, lots of lovely touches like the little chocolate eggs for easter and the most comfortable bed. The Mulberry Room is exquisite and the history of the house and naming of the bedrooms an interesting read. Sally and Steve have a gem of a place and are superb hosts.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the area for a wedding. The owners were inccredibly welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a good stay. We stayed in the Gold Room and it was amazing - the bed was really comfy and the bath was HUGE! My sister and her husband also stayed and enjoyed their room too. Breakfast was good and plentful. A lovely stay all round :-)

Room Tip: The Gold Room has an amazing bathroom!

This is a wonderful B&B on par with the best boutique hotels for furnishings and even better for service. Sally goes out of her way to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable - from home made cakes on arrival to buying my preferred breakfast cereal!
There are lovely 3 rooms - the Gold room having the most amazing bathroom is my favourite.
The area is lovely and quiet and the beds super comfy - so no problems with disturbed sleep here. I will always choose to stay here when I am in Portsmouth on business.

Room Tip: Ask for the Gold room if you want an amazing bathroom experience

We booked Windbrake on the recommendation of my parents who have stayed there twice. We had high expectations as they said it was excellent. We were not dissapointed! We stayed in the Mullberry room which was lovely. The breakfast was the best we'd had in ages. We'll be going back for sure! Best B&B we've stayed in!!!!
