There is parking available which means you can just park up and take a short picturesque walk beside the river into the city. Janice and Steve are... More

We could not afford to stay in a hotel due to our up and coming holiday so decided to go for a bed and breakfast. We found this guest house which had outside parking included in the price although spaces are limited. It was clean and tidy and the hosts were very friendly. This was well worth the money and...

I stayed at the guest house for a wedding and was pleasantly surprised with the attention the hosts showered me with. It honestly felt like nothing would be too much trouble for Steve and Janine. On my arrival I was met with a parking permit for the duration of my stay and Steve had local information and guide information so... More

Wonderful time here with great hosts who went out of their way to give us ideas on what to visit and how to get there via the most scenic routes. We had Room 1 which is large with plenty of space to unpack and store away your stuff. And get the omelette for breakfast-delicious!!
