From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and at home, Averill showed us to our lovely spacious clean room. She told us everything the rookery had to offer incuding the wonderful gardens. The garden was peaceful and tranquil with beautiful hanging baskets and displays. Our room was the owl room, and in it were two... More

Lovely welcome, extremely tasteful and comfortable rooms - and the owners went out of their way to cater for our vegan breakfast - thank you. Pleasant garden area at the back of the house with lovely flowers and a pond. Very relaxing.

This was my first ever stay in a bed and breakfast, it was purely a business trip but was met with a lovely reception and welcome. The room was immaculate, with tea and coffee. Shower had lots of hot water but unfortunately not able to trial breakfast to give an excellent rating. Thank you

Lovely guest house, a very warm welcome on arrival, the bed was really comfortable and immaculate. Good sized TV mounted on the wall and the shower had plenty of 'meat'. Great location to the motorway and the breakfast was delicious. I would come here again, thank you for your hospitality Avril.

Such a lovely guest house run by a very kind couple. Excellent value for money and recommended. It was easy to find, with parking out the front, also gave us easy access to the city. We would stay there again,
