My girlfriend booked this hotel as a surprise for my birthday. From the outside the building doesn't give you reason to expect anything special. But once inside we were nicely surprised by the decor and furnishings. Our room which was Room 3 was very pleasant, nice bedroom area, and a lovely bathroom with jacuzzi bath. Also the Japanese toilet was... More

This started out as a romantic valentines evening booked by my partner. We have stayed in this hotel 3 times before and sad to say that each time it has gotten worse. We really will be learning our lesson this time and will not be going back. Our first night there was brilliant, perfect in every way, we did not... More

This was our second time at this guesthouse, spent the past two New Years Eves there! Very hard to find, needs a big sign in the front garden ideally, but once you get there the staff are friendly and show you around then take you to your room. Japanese toilet in each room and nice hot tub in each room.... More

This B&B is excellent. The staff are lovely, breakfast is very tasty and they even asked us if we wanted more! Some of the details are on the verge of needing an upgrade, but the jacuzzi and Japanese toilet make up for it as does the heated outdoor pool. We had a lovely time and would recommend this to anyone... More

I dont usually leave reviewsbut I think a lot of the reviews on here are unjustified.Me and my partner stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Honestly, there were some down sides, the room was quite small but we did only stay in a standard room. The breakfast was not the best but was sufficient, with the choice of... More

We don't regret choosing this B&B, but we were a bit surprised about how below our expectations the experience was. But I will approach the good first: The staff seemed friendly and approachable. The concept behind the B&B is very unique, and there are few places in the UK you will be able to try out a Japanese washlet (toilet)... More

Very disapointing. Plug in Jaquzi leaked so the bath never got more than 2 inches in it. It looks awfull from outside & not the easiest to find. Staff all speak broken english. For the price I would have expected much better.
