This is one of the most comfortable and well-thought-out B&B's we've ever stayed in and we travel a lot! The bed and pillows were really comfy, the towels soft and fluffy, the shower hot and powerful. In our room we loved the bowl of fresh fruit, proper coffee for the cafetiere and a small decanter of sherry and bowl of nuts. It was also great to have plenty of drawers/ hanging space, as well as comfy chairs in the rooms -so few places provide this! When the weather is warm the place to be is in the beautiful and peaceful large garden (your host knows a huge amount about local horticulture should you like any information), there's a pretty little swimming pool and next to it a lovely pool-house with large comfortable chairs and sofas to relax in. The breakfasts are magnificent. Eve is a wonderful cook and is very kind. The staff and friendly and efficient and the place is immaculate. We look forward to staying there again when we are next in Howick.
