This was our 4th stay in the Minerva and, as before, had an excellent time with a very clean, well equipped bedroom and superb (and large) breakfasts. Dave & Rachel are excellent hosts and the advice they give re local amenities and restaurants can't be faulted. Looking forward to returning when they have their Steakhouse open.

We stayed for four nights this week and were very impressed - spotlessly clean and well run - breakfast was perfect and we would definitely stay there again! Well done Rachel and Dave and we hope we see you in our part of the country soon :0)
