They were able to cope with special diets and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. Good clean comfy rooms. We will be... More

I am on my third stay at the Elms. Would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. They have some great En-suite rooms with tasteful decor and the staff cannot do enough to help. In fact, my initial contact with them was an enquiry-but they were full, The staff then spent the next 15 minutes ringing round to... More

New owners, very busy but the usual relaxed ambiance as the they imprint their own visions on the pleasant B&B. Breakfast was up to the excellent standard expected with runny yolks from my poached eggs exploding on my toast to my total satisfaction, the bacon was high quality and tasty. My room was at the front on this visit and... More
