Me and my family stayed at this B&B recently.

The title says it all, lovely room and ensuite and a comfy bed. Breakfast was also good, even though the 40th birthday party we'd been at the night before was taking its toll! Property is right next to the town centre amenities so very handy for shops and bars/restaurants.
