This is a lovely hotel where the owners go to enormous trouble to make sure that you have a comfortable stay and make it a real home from home. The breakfasts are excellent with a huge choice and once again the staff know no bounds to ensure you are well looked after. The location is perfect, close to Hereford town... More

Set in a tree lined street this is more than just a B & B. Youre made to feel at home from the minute you walk through the door. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean! , everything catered for including fluffy robes and slippers. We stayed in room 6 and it had fantastic views towards cathedral. Breakfast was first... More

Lovely house felt like home right from the moment we walked in. The room we had was lovely more than enough room for our needs. A big surprise was the dressing gown and slippers. The staff where very friendly and more than accommodating, food was wonderful. Well worth 5 stars.

This B&B is good value. I was greeted by Rosie who gave me tea in garden on arrival which was a nice touch after my long drive. Room was clean and tidy with a good TV and selection of teas - I also appreciated the fresh milk instead of those horrid plastic pots. Breakfast was fairly good...Rosie's jam was very... More

Our enjoyment began with Bill's warm welcome and the tray of tea and biscuits,unfortunately there had been a run on Rosie's blueberry muffins! Our room was spacious with a large and comfortable bed.The bathroom was well appointed. There was a wide choice at breakfast with an emphasis on home made preserves and local produce. I think that our waitress on... More

It was a good nights sleep, good linen, fine pillows .... loved the fresh milk for our room. Shower and en suite a shade on small side. Garden looked lovely ( if we had time to have enjoyed it!) but good room even with middle of night (morning?!) youngsters on way home !! Breakfast excellent. x

No fuss, exceptionally clean, beautiful garden. A short walk into Hereford and a nice stay. We had a really good time. The breakfast menu was extensive and fresh. We think that arrival could have been better handled - our room wasn't available at the advertised time, but they made up for this. I think we only had free wifi because... More
