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

We only stayed one night but you could immediately see the attention to detail. We were offered home made muffins and fresh milk with our tea (not the long life stuff) which we could have either in our room or in the lounge where there was a lovely fire. I was amazed to see bathrobes and slippers in a B... More

I have stayed in both their Standard and Luxury rooms and frankly other than the size of the room there was not much if any difference! They have nicest beds in the universe! Incredible thread count on the sheets. Very clean. More fully equipped rooms than I would ever have expected for a B&B. The breakfast menu was extensive and... More
