Enjoyed two nights in the Primrose room which is on the ground floor. Very comfortable single bed. There is also a double in the room. Although there is not a view it has all the best furnishings, the usual facilities and a few nice extras. The bathroom has a shower and was spotlessly clean. The breakfast room is light and...

Lovely b & b. The hosts are so accomodating and have extremely high standards. Cleanliness was impressive. We had a room on the lower level which wa lovely but very warm with only a small window to open. Not a huge problem. Breakfast was lovely with everything you could wish for with meticulous preparation and presentation of food. Would highly...

Stayed for three nights here.The whole hotel was spotlessly clean throughout. The breakfast had nice ingredients, cooked perfectly, not a drop of grease. A good selection of fresh fruit and yogurt, every day. I over heard two people talking about how nice the smoked salmon fillet and eggs were for breakfast, but I always went for the full English. There...

We stayed here for one night and it was perfect! A lovely couple run the guest house and they couldn't do enough to make sure we were happy. Beautiful room and breakfast was brilliant. Great location to get to and from the town via bus (£1.60) and is right near the race course. There is a delightful pub just down...

If you scroll back over past reviews of Burswood you will find a number of them from me over quite a few years; if you've read them this new one will come as no surprise. Burswood is still the best B&B we have stayed in in the UK. It is unpretentious, but very well appointed and the breakfasts are consistently...

Burswood is a 4 star guest house it should be a 5 star. Simply the cleanest and well presented place I have ever stayed. I have OCD and things have to right, I could not find fault. We got bath robes, bath slippers, the best breakfast ever eaten. Burswood, is on a main road so you can hear heavy vehicles...

This must be the best Bed and Breakfast I have stayed in. Everything is just perfect. The beds are sooooo comfortable with lovely white bedding. There are 2 pillows each which you don't usually get and they are of top quality. Everywhere is so immaculate. We stated in Primrose Room and this is the family room so has a double...

The host is simply a superb chef and maniacal perfectionist offering more amenities and more quality than you can imagine. Feel like a special guest in a home that is actually at the highest standard of a hotel. The house is a wonderful classical house with beautiful original furniture. Great class!

Amazing stay! Our room was spotless. Breakfast more than satisfying. Hospitality second to none. Beautiful accommodation. The proprietors couldn't do enough for us. No hesitation in recommending the Burswood.
