What a wonderful few days we had at the 25 Boutique Hotel. It was an amazing experience. We have travelled all over the world and never have we met the standard of excellence we had the joy of experiencing here. The room was beautifully decorated, we stayed in Shoalstone Room. We also had a sitting room. The bathroom was wonderful with a huge walk in shower, which made you just want to stay in there as long as possible. The towels were soft and fluffy. The bed and pillows were so comfortable and spotlessly clean as indeed was everything in the hotel. The decor is modern with lovely art pieces and the attention to detail is spot on. The breakfasts cooked by Julian, were delicious with a great variety for all, including gluten free choices. We looked forward every afternoon to Andy’s treats, which were thoroughly enjoyed with an afternoon cup of tea or coffee in your room. There is also a fridge in the room stocked up with fresh milk and water every day. Andy was very knowledgable about the area and there were lots of leaflets and information on restaurants recommended by the owners. We just has the best of time here with our friends, we would certainly go back again and it was such a pleasure to meet Andy and Julian who were charming, caring and friendly. They were the perfect hosts and if you have never been before, book today, you will be in for a real treat.

Pack your bags and head off to The 25. A real Film Star experience awaits . The furnishings and decor are straight from a Blockbuster Movie. All the reviews for The 25 regarding the Fab Breakfasts and Comfy Rooms are all spot on and much more, but the one thing that impressed me the most was the Passion that both Andy and Julian have for their Business and the Quest to be the Best. Rest easy Lads, you are way in front of the rest…..

We had a lovely time, we wanted the best B&B, we got the best. Couldn’t fault anything. Loved the breakfast and the pampering. I can’t imagine anybody not agreeing. We will definitely be back. Andy & Julian are the best hosts you could possibly wish for. They made us feel special.

Andy and Julian were perfect hosts. They have everything you expect and more. We especially appreciate the treat which they leave every night and the night light that comes on in the bathroom wnen you enter at night. However, the best thing was the personal service they provided us helping us to cope with the rail strike. They also helped us obtain COVID test kits on short notice when the Royal Mail failed to ship us kits we ordered online on time. THANK YOU !!!

Yet another wonderful break at the No 25. This is how you run a B&B. Lovely comfortable & quiet room (The Whatmore) . Great facilities and the little things that make the difference - proper milk, daily treats, sweets, Alexa, Netflix, welcome drink. The breakfast amazing as ever and fantastic hosts in Any & Julian. See you again next year

Our hosts, Andy and Julian, have created a B&B that has everything, fantasic individual styling and an attention to detail throughout seldom seen in any B&B or hotel anywhere in the world. The suite (Watcombe) was spotless and fully equipped, we were able to relax and just chill when tired from sightseeing etc., also Andy's daily treats were delicious with our afternoon tea! Breakfast was perfect with many items home made and warm dishes made to order. Andy and Julian were welcoming, informative and always had time for a chat about whatever.

We returned to the 'Goodrington' room, which perfectly suited our needs, great location, free parking and sunshine when we arrived :). The journey down was complicated/lengthened by Friday traffic, and the first heat-wave of the year. However, this was soon a distant memory after unpacking and receiving a cooling drink on the terrace before heading out.

We decided on a last minute break away and fell upon The 25 Boutique by chance as they had had a cancellation, unlucky for the client but lucky for us. From the minute we checked in to when we left we were made to feel at home. Loved Andy’s daily treats to come back to at the end of a day. 25 is absolutely spotless, we travel around a lot and have never stayed anywhere as clean or as well organised for cleaning rooms or simply ‘topping up’. We slept that well we missed breakfast everyday apart from the last & that was only as I set the alarm to make sure we were up. We were that impressed we have already booked to stay again in August. Andy & Julian you have us sold on your beautiful B & B and will be recommending you to all our family & friends.

Hi Sue, Thank you for writing a review on The 25. We're pleased you were able to get a cancellation and have already booked up again. We generally can take bookings up to the end of the following year so that regular guests can plan well in advance and make sure they can always get a room when they want to. Currently you can book until October 2023 by calling us or up to 13 months in advance on line. We're so pleased you had such a great stay with us and although you missed Julian's award winning breakfasts on two days, at least you had a fabulous relaxing sleep. Maybe you'll make it down to breakfast more in August. Best wishes, Andy & Julian.

We stayed for the first time in 2020 just after Andy and Julian opened after COVID but we were unable to enjoy the full experience due to the restrictions imposed at that time. So this visit we were able to fully appreciate the uniqueness of the B&B. It is truly amazing, Alexa in the bedroom along with Espresso coffee machine and a frother and the complementary treats we receive each day. However for us it’s the breakfast which is the star, Julian’s homemade coconut yoghurt is fabulous and they use locally sourced ingredients. Will be returning that’s for sure

We have just had our first stay at The 25 and were excited from the moment we booked. We’ve seen the amazing reviews and now know first hand they are so deserved. We were greeted at the door and after checking in and unloading the car we were offered a welcome drink with homemade brownies in the superbly decorated drawing room. We had chosen Watcombe suite with a separate sitting room and were definitely not disappointed. Such beautiful rooms. The bedroom faces the rear and together with the blackout curtains (in both rooms), comfy super king sized bed and pillows, it was perfect for a great night’s sleep. There was everything you needed including fluffy bathrobes, slippers and even an ironing board and iron. Our second room, the beautifully light living room, overlooks the front of the property. It had all mod cons imaginable, large smart TV , mood lighting and they had thought of everything including a brilliant hairdryer and also hair straighteners. Everything needed was there with plentiful supplies of different teas, coffee, hot chocolate plus a Nespresso machine and a milk frother. The mini fridge was replenished daily with fresh milk as were the daily homemade treats such as tifffin, cookies, cake slices, beautifully presented on a small glass cake stand. There is smart technology throughout with Alexa, iPad with lots of local information, mood lighting.... all easy to use and ample electric sockets and in-built USB charging. Our ensuite was beautifully spacious. We had a lovely big walk-in digital shower with bathroom TV , fabulous sink area with plenty of storage space, a heated and lit bathroom mirror, Elemis toiletries and beautifully thick fluffy towels. Such a pleasure to use. Breakfast! There are so many choices. The huge dresser with juices, homemade smoothies and yoghurts, gorgeous jars of mixed fruit and more. A menu for hot food with wonderful options that we’ve never previously experienced. All perfectly cooked and with that added touch of TLC. Julian’s scrambled egg with smoked salmon is to die for. On checking out we were given a goodie bag full of treats for the journey home. What a brilliant and thoughtful idea. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so very welcome with nothing being too much trouble. It’s the little and thoughtful touches that make all the difference. Pure luxury from start to finish. The attention to detail was incredible and you can tell Andy On checking out we were given a goodie bag full of treats for the journey home.

We are looking forward to our next trip later this year.
