We were given room 5 on the first floor. The room was on the small side, especially if you are a large person. It was en-suite and also had tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable and the room was tidy and well kept. Helen was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our breakfast on both mornings of... More

Stopped for a couple of nights in room 2, ground floor between the entrance hall and dinning room. The whole place is well maintained, Landlady was very accommodating, good choice at breakfast and everything ran smoothly. Breakfast is 8am- 9am. Location is a fairly quiet residential side street about a 10 min walk from the city centre. There are shops... More

I had an absolute delight staying here! The host was so warm and welcoming and told me about lots of different places to visit and see while I was here. Room was cosy, bed was great. Very handy to have a sink in the room. It's in a really nice area, easy walking distance from the centre of town, and... More

Received a lovely warm welcome upon a very soggy arrival! The room was clean and cosy, the breakfast was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. A short walk (10minutes?) to the city walls and attractions, so was ideally located. Would 100% recommend!

Excellent Guest House. Home from home. Accomodation very clean and cosy. Shower brilliant. Very welcoming and accomodating, nothing is too much for them. Breakfasts excellent. Great for a quiet break but within minutes from the city centre. Ideal location will definitely be coming back to stay. Came for the Tour De France and this was ideal for us. Could not... More

Second superb Guest House in a week! This place is very well appointed and spotlessly clean and such a warm welcome too, even though I turned up very early (11am) the lady invited me in and my room was ready.

Spent two nights here recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner provided a warm welcome and provided us a parking permit to allow us to park right outside for the whole of our stay. The room we had was en-suite and was impeccably clean. Good tea and coffee-making facilities with high quality biscuits. Plenty of electrical outlets for charging... More
