Michael & Joyce go all out to make an enjoyable stay. Very welcoming, and lovely breakfasts; I had a full breakfast twice and haddock twice, all very good. The room was fine, but lacked quite enough hanging space & drawers; may be because we were on a 10-day trip of which this was just a part, and had two suitcases.

This charming B&B is Located in a residential area, in a building built in 1901. What a great welcome from Michael addressing us by name when he opened the door! From there, things went great.
