We stayed two nights over New Year with friends and were really well looked after by Cliff, Jayne and co. We cannot fault anything with our stay, i.e., rooms, breakfast, location, everything was superb.

By far, the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Nothing was to much trouble and the hosts (Cliff, Jayne, Sally and Baxter the dog) made us feel relaxed and at home straight away. The standard of the rooms is very high and the breakfast was superb! We would recommend The Leicester to anyone, it deserves a gold award. Thanks... More

Its a long time since I stayed at a guest house so I had some jaundiced view of past experiences. These apprehensions were soon erased by the friendly welcome from Cliff and the quality of the furnishings and decor. I was surprised by the superb choice of food for breakfast and the individuality of the cooking and above all else... More

I experienced an excellent quality of stay at The Leicester with hosts Cliff and Baxter the dog. Breakfast was excellent, especially as I am a vegetarian and they often aren't in hotels. The room was beautifully presented and I had a good night's sleep. I received every assistance possible during my stay and a free room upgrade. I have no... More

The decor throughout was excellent and our room was spacious with a lovely ensuite bathroom. The hosts, Cliff and Jayne, were excellent hosts for my sixtieth birthday celebration. They both went out of their way to ensure we had all we needed. On top of all this the breakfast was superb with an excellent choice of hot and cold options.

We recently stayed here over two nights and were immediately impressed with the warmth of the welcome from owner Cliff who even helped with getting the luggage from the car which is something you would expect at a 5 star hotel! This set the standard for our whole stay, which I cannot praise too highly. Our room was so comfortable,... More
