Doreen and Robert were a godsend for us as we arrived at their home and B&B straight from Heathrow earlier this month. They greeted us by name; they treated us as personal friends; they gave us free rides when they were available; and their enthusiasm for serving us (and that's what they did!) never flagged.
We are veteran B&B travelers and we've never had hosts who were so sincerely pleasant and eager to help us as Doreen and Robert were. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
On top of their top drawer personal treatment, we had pretty and comfortable accommodations in a nice, rural surrounding. And they recommended the Sun and Stars just down the road where we had two delicious dinners.
Do not be put off by the fact that the twin room as a bathroom across the hall. It was large, gorgeous and brand new. Also, don't be put off by the comments of people saying you can hear the planes from Heathrow. First of all, we didn't hear them but, secondly, if you don't want to see and hear Heathrow planes, you might not want to stay that close to Heathrow.
I say, forgot the modern and impersonal hotels downtown. For a taste of real Britain, this beautiful and comfortable home can't be beaten.
