Really liked the room here in the roof. We followed some winding, narrow staircases round various bends to reach our room. Shame we weren't given a key for it though. Breakfast was unusual in that all guests were presented with the most delicious fresh fruit salad ever. The owner was very keen to tell us about the history of the... More

We stayed for one night, after having brought my sister home from a stay with us in Devon. We had a warm welcome and were shown to our room in this grade 2 listed building. What a fantastic room with many of the owners' own ornaments, wooden window shutters, an orchid by the bedside and beautifully appointed bedding. The bathroom... More

We stayed one Saturday night to attend a party in the town. Easy to find and off road parking. Room was immaculately clean with everything you need. I even used the sewing kit as I realised my new trousers were too long! Lovely powerful shower. I didn't find a hairdryer but I had taken my own so that wasn't a... More

This was a great half way stop on business between Cambridge and Lincolnshire. In terms of cleanliness in hotels and B+B's I would use 5 categories; awful, not brilliant, average, good and spotless. This takes that top notch spot!! Lovely big bedroom and gorgeous bathroom with high pressure shower and very attractive decoration and ornaments.. Very welcoming host and a... More

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting friends in the area. We had a great welcome from the owners and the whole place was am extremely high standard. The large hotels could learn from this place. The breakfast was the best ever. The fruit salad had over 15 varieties and very healthy. The actual full English was one of... More

We stayed for a couple of nights while we were moving into a new house in Downham Market. The room was first rate, far superior to a so-called first class room we had in a hotel in Amsterdam. The en-suite was very stylish and the power shower lived up to its name. The breakfast set us up for the rest... More

The quality of the rooms and breakfast is excellent and I support all other reviews in this regard. Beware that you are not provided with a key. This was no problem on the first night but on Saturday morning we had a walk around the town before heading off for the day, despite talking to the landlord about this before... More

This B&B would put many 5 star hotels to shame with the warm welcome, delicious breakfast - including the incredible 20+ fresh fruit mix - and room facilities which leave guests wanting for nothing. This was our second 3 night stay as we regularly visit the area and we are pleased to have found such an excellent place.
