This is the first guest house we have stayed in where there is no choice at breakfast. Cereal and juice is fine (although no fresh fruit offered to us), and we were then merely presented with a cooked breakfast. Not asked how we would like our egg cooked; no mushrooms, and cold tomatoes. Asked if we could have cooked tomatoes, only to be told that "we do not cook our tomatoes." When asked for them either to be cooked, or not presented at all, the half tomato duly arrived cooked the next morning. Cartons of long life milk in bedroom were out of date on day of arrival. There were other small niggles and I did not find the hosts very amiable, approachable or particularly friendly.
The house itself is situated in a quiet, pleasant tree lined avenue. However, I personally feel there is more superior b & b out there for approximately the same cost. This was not particularly cheap and was certainly not booked as "budget" accommodation. Perhaps my expectations were a little too high!
