"Our stay was like living in a Victorian Interactive Museum."
St Benedicts was recommended to us by friends who had stayed in this extraordinary house. This is not any ordinary B&B, it is a labour of love which the owners have invested an enormous amount of time and money to bring back to the glory of its beginning in the middle of the 19th century. In spite of its opulent old world look, the house sports modern facilities such as Wifi, television and extractor fans in the bathrooms. But the main attraction has to be the multitude of Victorian details. Read less
Likes:
There was so much to see, so many items of interest in the house and garden. The welcome was very friendly, we played the piano, we had tea by an open fire and enjoyed the scrumptious breakfasts.

Response from St Benedict B&B:
Thank you so much Simone for your lovely review - it means a great deal to us. We hope you will be able to return some time!

"A Feast for the Eyes"
Staying at St Benedict's is a wonderful experience. There are so many beautiful things to look at that it is difficult to know what to focus on next. The hosts are very willing to share their experience of the house with you. Breakfast is held at an oval table and the guests feel as if they are staying at a country residence as delicious food is provided in tureens on the sideboard. Read less
Likes:
We mostly loved the house. It is truly individual and has been put together with love and attention. Such care has been taken in detail and includes an organ built by one of the hosts.

We would like to have had more table lamps in the room to be able to read. It was a little bit chilly in the room.

Thank you Beata for your review. Sorry about the chill, and we are looking out for more table lamps!

St Benedict is a beautiful and comfortable home dating to 1881, and is finished and run with the style and comfort of a bygone age: the late 19th century, when the house (and the surrounding streets) was built. St.Leonards was a stylish and select resort at that time, attracting wealthy people to the fresh air of the south coast. All the antique decoration, furnishings and fittings are in the period of the late 19th century, with every detail attended to.

On arrival our guests may take tea on the lawn where a cloth is laid with fine china and home baking straight from the Aga or in the winter sit in the drawing room in front of a roaring fire. If you wish you can arrange to have a full dinner in the Victorian dining room with a choice of traditional recipes prepared 'below stairs'.

A lavish breakfast is served country house style in our atmospheric Dining Room. You can help yourself to a full English cooked breakfast with fruits and cereals.

We have five bedrooms that can be booked for residential stays. Our best room is 'Mr Parry's Suite overlooking sea and garden, with a 4 poster double bed, a separate dressing room and en suite shower room. There are 3 comfortable and well appointed double rooms (2 with with sea views) all well furnished in period and with their own individual style. An additional room with twin beds can be also booked. Each guest room has its own private bathroom with sink or washstand, a rolltop bath. There is no shower in these bathrooms, which retain their late 19th century atmosphere with antique fixtures and fittings.

Before you leave why not enjoy a stroll through the large garden with peach house and long glasshouse, or sit in the summer house or even have a few minutes' quiet in the beautifully decorated garden chapel.

We will do our best to make your visit to St Benedict an opportunity for you to be well looked after and even spoilt a little in a home that has been described as a 'living museum'.
