My wife and I had a splendid time staying in this house. It is wonderful building that has been beautifully restored. The bedroom ( the Melville Room ) was delightful and comfortable. The host was welcoming and helpful and the breakfasts served were very tasty. We'd strongly recommend this to all our friends.
