We stayed here for two nights and it was a very pleasant stay. The location was perfect for us as we were 10 minutes away from where our friends live and was the purpose of our visit. From the outside the house looks very nice and once inside we were not dissappointed, there was an old fahioned charm about the... More

Set at the end of a private road two Victorian villas have been made into one property making it an ideal location with no passing traffic. The furnishings are in keeping with the age and style of the property, though with a modern comfortable bed and bathroom. Our room was on the back of the property and set exactly at... More

The room was really clean, and although we were looking at the road, it was a really quiet road. The family room was a nice size and the... More

Issues with housekeeping in several areas.Breakfast was only just acceptable even though we had to order the night before. A very average experience but hosts were friendly and informative. In need of some upgrading

What a pity you did not mention any of these issues when you checked out of our guest house. We always ask our guests whether everything was to their satisfaction as we bid them farewell. We would have happily discussed the specified matters with you at the time of your stay. More
