I was really happy with my stay. Very friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately I was not up early enough for the breakfast but I put that down to how comfortable the room and bed was. I am looking forward to my next visit

We ended up bookign this a bit late on, so were expecting it to be a bit of a trek to the stadium. In fact, the location was brilliant and i'll stay again if I ever attend another event... More

Nischa and Byran were the most wonderful hosts you can ever meet. I stayed at this B & B in August this year for a few days and it was just perfect.
