This must be one of the most difficult reviews I have ever written as there are so many good things about staying at Oysters but also alot of negatives. The position is perfect right on the waters edge, it is quiet and peaceful despite having a great pub next door. The property is spacious and very clean. However it was a tremendous shock on arrival, it looked and smelt like an Old Peoples Home. There were stair-lifts and Zimmer frames, very dated clutter and and furniture. It is such a shame that the place is not de-cluttered and updated and evidence of previous owners removed. Outside furniture is very poor, so sitting outside was not a pleasure, again a shame in such a stunning place. It would be so easy to make this the perfect place to stay with a minimalist approach to furnishing. Pallant Holidays were very good at the admin all very efficient.

Thank you for your review. It is great to see that you found lots of positive aspects about Oysters but we are also sorry to see that you thought there were some negative points as well.

We are really not sure what could have caused the smell on your arrival. Oysters is kept very clean by the housekeepers, as you have said. It may be that, at low tide, the exposed seaweed and mud flats can sometimes give off a slightly unpleasant smell and so perhaps this was the case at the time of your arrival.

There is a stair lift at the house (but no Zimmer frames) and some of the older guests who stay do find this very useful. The stairway is quite wide and so the stair lift does not really get in the way at all.

The furnishings and decorations at Oysters are not "modern" or in a minimalist style, but many guests see this as adding to the character of the house. A modern and minimalist style is not, perhaps, to everyone's tastes.

We do hope that the positive aspects of the house outweigh any negative thoughts you may have had and we do hope that you will book with us again.

Kind regards,

Pallant Holiday Lets

Thank you for your review of Oysters in Bosham. It is great to see that you enjoyed your stay so much and that all went well with cooking your Christmas dinner in the AGA. They are not difficult to cook with once you get used to them a little.

If we can be of any assistance to you in the future, please do let us know.

Kind regards,

Pallant Holiday Lets
