We stayed with Felice & Peter for a few nights for a wedding in Winchester. Their home is only 10 minutes walk through a park to central Winchester, with great views up the High Street along the way & a lovely bakery at the bottom of the hill. The room was well appointed, cosy & quiet. Would definitely recommend.
Such a quiet and peaceful place - and what wonderful hosts and amazing breakfasts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you, Felice. You made us feel so very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for you. The dogs were so much fun, too. The room was exceptionally clean, and so comfortable. We certainly intend to come back to stay with you again. Thanks a ton...
Hardy House was very difficult to find as there was no sign on the wall or anywhere else to let guests know this was the place. It really is just a bedroom in someone's home. No separate entrance therefore care needed to be taken with the two lovely dogs. Steep stairs lead to a very tiny, hot stuffy room with a nice view to the back garden. The large picture windows didn't open so the small bathroom window needed to be open for any ventilation at all. There was a kettle on one bedside table and a hairdryer on the other with a flimsy plastic chair offering the only seating apart from the bed. There was no hanging space in the robe "as it's our home" even though prices were comparable to a hotel and pre paid. Did I mention there was no lock on the door and unmatching scrungy old towels on the bed. We stayed about 15 minutes and left on the pretext of looking for lunch and never returned. It was a most unsatisfactory first experience of British hospitality.
Stayed for a wonderful night here, along with our dog. The hosts were very welcoming and the room was beautiful - clean, quiet, all the amenities.
Highly recommend booking.
We stayed two nights. Felice and Peter were very helpful and accommodating as we required the sofa bed downstairs for an extra person. Would definitely stay again.
