The great reviews for this B&B are well and truly deserved. Just got back from an excellent weekend there. So where to start. Parking wasn't too bad, it's free parking on the street outside the B&B.The position is perfect, as for all B&B's on this street. Only a very short walk to the castle (and pubs).
We had a very nice and informative welcome. The house and decor are beautiful, the whole place has a great atmosphere. Ours was the downstairs room looking out onto the city walls, Wow what a lovely room. Spotlessly clean, quite roomy and very tastefully decorated. But it's the all the extras that make it somewhere special. Not only do you have a mini-fridge, but it is also supplied with fresh milk and a complimentary beer/wine. All you need is supplied eg:bottle opener/hair dryer etc.
The shower room is top quality too, very clean and excellent shower. The bath towels are huge and feel luxurious. Basically there is nothing cheap about this place. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets crisp and very clean.
Ok, breakfast, again top marks. The attention to detail is superb eg: toothpicks/jams etc. Food excellent, and it seems a larger choice than most B&B's. Service is great, somehow you feel you should be paying a lot more than you are for staying here.
Don't worry if the weather is bad as the rooms are so comfortable it's a pleasure to pass the time in the room. Oh yes, you have a flat screen TV and DVD player too. Only thing we had to do was turn the mini-fridge off at night as it was a little noisy (but would definately rather have the fridge than not).
Would very happily stay here again.
PS: Almost forgot the WiFi internet. Great!!!
