I really enjoyed my one-night stay here last week, so much so, that I will stay there again next week.
I've never been to a guest house in the UK before. Come to think of it, only ever been to one other B&B ever. So I didn't really know what to expect.
Trafalgar Guest House is a quiet, well-placed, clean, comfortable guest house near the heart of Fareham. It is family-run and the prices are quite affordable for a single (£57 at the time I wrote this), and the room I was clearly recently refurbished. Furnishings a little on the girly-side, if that kind of thing bothers you, but I suspect this is de rigueur for most guest houses, and my own personal feeling is, "who cares, I'm just sleeping here."
I was in an en suite, where the bathroom had clearly been retrofitted in the recent future. The retrofit, was...well...ugly. Not that it was done badly, but I just hate the look when you carve one room out of the other, that you don't take the new walls all of the way to the ceiling. I'm sure it makes it cheaper, and we're not talking the Ritz Paris, but I found it an unfortunate architectural aspect of my room.
At this point, allow me to be really clear: I'm struggling hard to find anything substantively bad to say about this place!
Breakfast was included in the tariff and good. Eggs on toast, cereal, juice and coffee.
For location, it was a 5 minute walk to the pedestrian zone of Fareham town center, where there are restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes, etc. galore. For me, I was working in the nearby Whiteley Business Estate, which was roughly a 15 minute cab ride at around £12 one-way (cabs in Fareham, by the way, are super cheap). Fareham station is 10-15 minutes by foot.
If you have a mind to explore the Portsmouth, Gosport, Southampton area, give this place a try. I think you'll enjoy it.
