Stayed in a double room with en suite for 2 nights. Room is cosy. Not very big, but more than sufficient. Had two radiators in the room, so was warm. En suite was fine. Not the most modern room, but no complaints about it. Hosts were welcoming, helped us get out bearings of the city and relaxed. Breakfast was great... More

Fantastic from start to finish. Very warm welcome; Janine was very helpful. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Ideal location with only a few minutes walk into the city. Breakfast was delicious and hot.. Can't find any fault. How they are not rated 5 star I will never know!

B&B is not too long a walk from the tourist centre (even with severely blistered feet I managed). There is a good choice for breakfast. Room are clean & well presented. Owners are lovely and accommodating.

The place is lovely and clean and we were made to feel very welcome. On arrival we were shown a map with all the local sightseeing place etc. The owners couldn't do enough for you. Food was lovely although is served quite early!
