At the end of the day, this is not really a b&b, it is a room above a pub. The family room was clean and spacious with a large bathroom (no plug for bath though !). Breakfast was nice (it is served by the bar) but had to wait 40 mins for it on the Sunday. When I asked for... More

Room & food were great, but the most ignorant people we have had the misfortune to meet. My wife had a nasty fall in the ladies toilets on a wet floor that had no signage about. When I informed them of it nobody had a thought of how she was, just put a sign up. Not one of the management... More

Dirty carpets, old mattresses thrown out in the back yard, piles of dirty laundry in the corridor, room was not serviced for the 3 days I stayed there. Definitely needs a thorough "make over". Breakfast was so-so, no extra knife for toast & marmalade (and had to go searching for the marmalade!). Staff were friendly but still would not go... More

The menu is small with some interesting additions. I... More
