What a charming review, we are very happy to have hosted yourself and your very inventive wife. We supply ear plugs because our home is old and historic and sometimes "talks back" to our guests as they move up and down stairs or open and close doors - serving a dual purpose and relief from snoring is an added benefit....

We really enjoyed staying at this place. It is a beautifully restored old building and all the nice things you expect from a good B&B are there. Deborah was a wonderful host. The only word of criticism: the bath tub was located in our room. Not a problem to us but not overly practical.

Just arrived home from staying two nights at this wonderful B&B. Everything was perfect from our arrival to our departure. Deborah, Yvonne and Rosemary made our stay great. The B&B is close to the riverwalk, easy to walk, one of the best omelets I have ever had. Our first stay, but we will return.
