We had two nights in room 8 (Burley) and can't recommend Rum Doodle highly enough! Gregor and Emma were brilliant hosts. They really seem to enjoy what they do, and gave us some great ideas and advice about dining options and walking plans. Breakfast was delicious and set us up really well for the days. Lovely bath tub in the... More

We were welcomed by very friendly staff with a lovely afternoon tea. The room we had was clean and very comfortable and we felt very 'at home'. Breakfast is superb in both quality and choice.Would definitely recommend!

I came across the lovely Rum Doodle in the free Late Rooms 52 weeks e-book. The reviews on here just made me want to book and I wasn't disappointed. As soon as you walk through the door you are immersed into the Rum Doodle experience. We stayed 2 nights for my partners birthday with the extras I requested delivered with... More

There are not enough stars!! This place was amazing, from the minute we were greeted at the door with the warmest welcome ever, too our last goodbye, everyone was so friendly, helpful and polite with nothing too much trouble. The room we were in was the cutest double, decorated perfectly and in keeping with entire building. I just loved it,... More

Stayed for 2 nights and we couldn't fault the staff - very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, lots of choice. The decor is fab, really quirky and vintage chic. Really liked the small touches like DVDs available in the hall to take to your room. We stayed in number 7 and were very happy, however the only... More

Thanks for that. Room 7 does tend to be a warm room and many guests like that. The opening window does help let some fresh air in if required! More

Okay, so the review comes a little bit late. Stayed at Rum Doodle last week and it was by far one of the best stays I've ever had in the UK! From the minute we walked in where we were greeted by Emma and immediately taken up to our room before settling down to some delicious homemade chocolate brownies. There... More

I have always been reluctant to stay in b&b's as the quality varies so much but rum doodle came recommended so we thought we'd give it a go! We weren't disappointed, the staff are exceptional (Donna was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble), the room was decorated well with attention to detail and the breakfast was lush! The only...

On a damp and dreary day we were delighted to receive a perfect welcome from Emma along with delicious slice of raspberry frangipane and pot of tea. Emma was the perfect host with a well thought out plan for anyone wanting to know more about the local area, including their favorite places to eat which gave a real sense of... More

From being greeted at the door by Donna on arrival to leaving at the end of our stay, the heart warming hospitality at the Rum Doodle from Emma, Grego and the team was second to none. Fresh Flowers and a bottle of Rum Doodle Procecco were in our room as I had pre requested. We chose to stay at the... More
