“Fabulous Location and Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2006

Old brick home with large rooms (king size beds), sparkling clean ensuites with view of gorge.

Lizzie (host), Fizzy (dog) and husband Robert (weekends only) open their home to you and provide helpful hints to visit and eat. They even have a bar licence at very reasonable prices. Internet around the corner 3 doors down.

Breakfast was absolutely amazing, including fresh muffins, fruit great coffee and a fabulous fry-up. Nothing was spared.

Highly recommend - this is not your usual B&B but rather a great experience.

  • Liked — Ambience, Cleanliness and Delicious Breakfast
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — Have a glass of wine with your hosts - most enjoyable.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2006

My wife and I just returned from a visit to the Iron Bridge Gorge area and spent 2 wonderful nights at the Library House, just across from the northern end of the actual Iron Bridge. Lizzie, the hostess, was friendly and most helpful in all ways. Even though the weather was chilly and a bit bleak, she helped make our visit most enjoyable. We would not hesitate to stay at the charming Libary House again.

Too many museums and much else to see in the area for only two days. Highly recommend this B & B and the area to everyone. There are a number of very nice places to eat within a few minutes walk too.
