We stayed in 4 different B&B’s in England, and found Greenview House to be the most welcoming of them all. The host, Rod, was extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating, as was his canine companion, Buddy. The room was roomy, homey, and well-appointed, and the breakfasts were exactly to order. The guest house is very convenient to shopping, restaurants, transportation, and... More

This is exactly as I remember a B&B: You get a lovely clean room with a landlord/lady who loves to have guests and is interested in what you're up to and what you've planned! (Nowadays you get so many very hotel-like places with 6 bedrooms and everything is clinical and unpersonal). But Greenview is perfect! Very small room, but perfect... More

Lovely cosy twin bedded room and fantastic value for money. Rod, the owner was so lovely! He was so accomodating and treated us as friends, and I will never forget his lovely doggie, 'Buddy', what a lovely cuddly dog. The breakfast was great and you can order whatever you like. We could use the fridge and he left glasses in... More

We stayed here for a 1 night stopover at very short notice - luckily there was a room availiable. All others in the area were fully booked or vey expensive. Extremely glad we found this place as very much better than a large impersonal hotel. There are only 4 rooms and our twin room was very large and comfortable. Can't... More

Rod was so helpful and a wealth of local knowledge. Nothing was too much trouble. He was very patient and.kind with my elderly disabled parents. Good location near to transport links, shops and restaurants. Wanted to steal his cute dog!

Had a really very nice two night stay here. The proprietor is incredibly welcoming and hospital. He'll do whatever he can to make your stay more pleasant. The room was modern and comfortable. The location is excellent. Highly recommended.

Rod and his four-legged friend, Buddy, were wonderful hosts for our group of 4 people and one West Highland White Terrier named Jasmine. Greenview House has a great location with nearby walking areas for our dog and close to town for shopping or dining. Rod made us feel right at home and was very helpful during our 2-night stay.
