We stayed b and b here for 1 night. We arrived early but were welcomed and taken up to our rooms by a really lovely lady with a great sense of humour. Rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable. We decided to have some lunch in the tea rooms. Soup and sandwich is great value. Huge portions of very... More

Stayed at this quaint place for two nights whilst visiting family. A lovely warm and cosy house. The decor is clean as is all the amenities . The breakfast was absolutely delicious with plenty of choice. The electric tripped on the second morning so I missed out on my wake up coffee. None the less would recommend and will be... More

The Poppy House is clean, comfortable and full of character. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and they serve probably the best cooked breakfasts known to man. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.Superb, thank you.

Stayed one night for my brothers 60th, usually stay with him but full! We had a lovely large room well equipped. The service was excellent and given our own key to get in and let us leave our car after we checked out whilst we went to see my brother again. The breakfast was lovely and we could choose what...

We stayed here from the 15 th to the17 th of November. This hotel is full of old world charm. There are however many modern comforts such as the central heating being on a guest controlled thermostat. Unusually for a small hotel, there is a fridge in the room with soft drinks and a jug of fresh milk to go... More

Well I am raving about this place -- it is perfect in a perfect little town, which a fellow guest described as a time capsule. Not within striking distance from Offa's Dyke National Trail, Clive came out the 4 miles to collect me (and I was so glad!!). Truly family run, they are so well organised and professional as a...

If you want to stay in a modern characterless hotel don't come here. This is a historic building transformed into a charming little hotel. Rooms are comfortable but not over modernised. Very good cooked breakfast and a genuine warm welcome from the hosts. Excellent value for money. Parking is limited but there is a free town car park two minutes... More
