Don't usually stay in B&B's or write reviews but thought this was worthy of a mention as extremely friendly service & a very nice place to stay. We usually stop in hotels but stayed here for 1 night as it was very close to a friends house & were made to feel a lot more welcome than you would in... More

Had a very nice 1 night stay at the Tennyson. The lady who greeted us and cooked us breakfast was the only staff member we saw (possibly the owner judging by other comments?) and she was brilliant! Very friendly, and my omelette in the morning was fantastic. My girlfriend is veggie and they had plenty of things she could have... More

Situated 10 minutes walking on the flat from the town centre. The welcome was warm and friendly. Parking was adequate. The room was clean, warm and the facilities were of a great standard. Wi fi, tea/coffee, TV etc. All the things you expect from a chain hotel in a guest house. Breakfast was perfect. Coffee was great and the food... More

Superb in every way; friendly owner, fantastic breakfast, comfortable room. The lady who owns the hotel was the perfect hostess and cooked a wicked breakfast! The bedroom was homely, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge and sparklingly clean. I ate well and slept well; what more could you ask for? Definitely deserving of the AA 4* rating!

The Tennyson is a house with excellent service and great location. It is only a few minutes walk to the high street and very near some local restaurants and pizza shops. As it was raining I was even given an umbrella from the hotel not to get wet. Hotel offers only Breakfast which is excellent; certainly recommended

Stayed here for two nights to go to the Christmas Market. We were very pleased with the standards afforded to us. As a B&B it is extremely comfortable (if a little warm!) The rooms were clean and well presented with some very nice extra touches (phone chargers in particular). The lounge area and breakfast room were spotless - again with... More

From the moment we arrived until we left, we had an extremely friendly & warm experience. The room, although small was adequate for our needs, with super-comfortable beds & a lovely deep bathtub with loads of hot water. The breakfast was very tasty & beautifully presented with lots of choice. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this b&b & will, ourselves... More

Stayed at this guesthouse for our daughters graduation and I was a little late in booking hence booked here and not one of our preferred locations as it is a bit of a walk to the other end of the high street and the Cathedral area. First the good things: We were welcomed by a lovely young girl who was... More
