We stayed at 25 Boutique for 4 nights all i can say is the moment you enter into the reception and to your room WOW all the attention to details and cleanliness is exceptional. We stayed in the Torre room and it was beautiful there was 3 No TV's one in the shower, dressing and bedroom. The dressing was an added bonus, the decor through out the bedroom was amazing. We would like to thank Andy and Julian for a great stay they were very helpful and attentive and will be returning again

Hi Lesley, Thank you for posting a review on your stay at The 25. We appreciate it. We're thrilled to see that we got the wow! moment constantly and that you loved the Torre Suite which is only set to get better this winter with its makeover. Don't worry, "Frank" the zebra will be staying! Glad you found the separate dressing room useful too. We look forward to your return visit. Don't forget to book up as soon as you can as 2022 is already starting to fill up and shaping up to be another busy year. Best wishes, Andy & Julian.

This is the second time we have stayed at The 25 and it won’t be the last as we’ve already booked up again for next year! We needn’t say more than that really as I think that says everything. BUT Andy and Julian well deserve the accolades that they get, as nothing is too much trouble and the attention to detail is second to none. Small things, like Andy’s Daily treats of cookies or cake, the delicious breakfast choices, the toiletries or things you might have forgot to pack drawer, the well thought out layout of the room, plus the sumptuous and perfect decor all around. We stayed in the Shoalstone suite but any room is fantastic! Thanks Guys - see you next year!

Hi Kay, Thanks for your review. We're pleased that you and Peter enjoyed your stay with us at The 25 again. We're thrilled that you continue to love what we do. For any potential guests wondering, the photo Kay posted of food is our "Grazing Box for 2". This is created for us by a small local catering company and consists of: A generous selection of charcuterie & cheeses, homemade falafel balls, cheese straws & sausage rolls, pickled vegetables, hummus, chutney & olives, fruit & nuts served with artisan bread, crackers, olive oil & balsamic. If you'd like to enjoy one during your stay with us one evening, it can be pre-ordered when booking or via the "Food" section of our website. It's ideal for the first night when you're not sure what time you might arrive or don't want to head straight out and would prefer to spend some time enjoying your fabulous room. Looking forward to seeing you both next year Kay. Best wishes, Andy & Julian.

It is impossible to be disappointed when you stay at The 25. Andy and Julian have everything covered. We have just returned home after staying 6 nights but booked again for next year before we left, we love The 25 that much! If you enjoy the details and then the finer details, then The 25 is for you. It is no surprise to us, The 25 is the best B&B in the World - if and when you stay, you'll get it too!

Hi Glynn, Thanks for writing a review of your and Michelle's stay. We know we're doing something right when guests book for the following year whilst still here (always advisable as we're already getting booked up for 2022). We look forward to seeing you again next year and hope we continue to impress you. Best wishes, Andy & Julian.

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at Andy & Julian’s 25 Boutique B&B and we can honestly say that all the reviews for this wonderful B&B are 100% spot on. We stayed in the Torre Suite and although the other suites will be just as beautiful we will always favour this one for the size and of course the changing room with its massive mirror surrounded by the LED globe lights which are fabulous for putting your makeup on and doing your hair. It has 4 sockets 2 either side for your your hair dryer, tongs, straighteners and you can charge your mobile at the same time. In fact I counted 16 sockets in the whole of the suite ( sad I know ) but what a change from some establishments that you have to hunt for a socket. Andy and Julian go all out to give you the best holiday experience when you stay with them, for instance my husband asked for a firmer pillow because he’d forgotten to bring his own memory foam one and that afternoon when we got back to the suite there was a little note on saying thanks for letting them know about the memory foam because nobody had asked them before and hey presto there was a brand new memory foam pillow for him, now that’s what I call the best customer service we’ve ever come across. We joined their mailing list and became VIP customers which gives you a later checkout plus a complimentary mini fridge plus other little perks. The mini fridge ( which was a silent running fridge ) was the poshest one we’ve experienced during our many holidays, you won’t find any cheap items in it, you’ll find a bottle of Peroni, a bottle of San Miguel, J20, a local company’s bottled water x 2 and 1 x sparkling ( the water is replenished daily if requested ) a small bottle of Pinot Blush wine, a small bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, Doorman peanuts, and chocolate raisins and a small bar of local orange chocolate. I could spend hours writing about this wonderful B&B but I’ll wear out my iPhone screen so I’ll highlight all of our favourites The Torre suite The shower The quality breakfast The decor everywhere The top quality bedding The security ( electronic key fob ) The parking ( an entrance and exit ) Seeing Patsy their gorgeous miniature Schnauzer ( a friendly little soul ) And the lovely Andy & Julian of course. We will be back in 2023 for sure Lynne & Michael

Dear Lynne & Michael, Thanks so much for your wonderful review which must be one of our longest! It sounds like the Torre Suite suited you well with the separate dressing room, and we hope you'll like the new décor we're creating over winter whilst closed. Glad you found it useful to have sockets in all the right places. It's a particular bug bear of ours and people have so many things with them that need charging nowadays. Thanks for mentioning our VIP guest scheme - people can join via the link on our website for the benefits, discounts and perks this brings. See you in 2023. Best wishes, Andy, Julian & Patsy!
