I booked this place based on a solid amount of great reviews- I was not disappointed. The Dales is a more traditional B&B but nonetheless charming and very well presented. The building itself is a large townhouse (3 stories?) with a large communal lounge and a few rooms on each floor.
It is located on a quiet residential street opposite the Valley Gardens/ Park which is well worth a walk through for the incredibly varied and well maintained plants.
I was greeted by the extremely pleasant proprietor (I apologise, I don't know her name), where I was given a brief tour and shown to my room. The room was a nice mix of old style (Large with high ceilings and traditional features) with clean tidy and modern decor. Everything was extremely clean with all the facilities that you need - Flat screen modern TV, ensuite WC & shower (very new), super comfy bed and a great nights sleep.
Parking is outside the property on the road but there was ample spaces nearby and you would require a permit (provided free by B&B) if you are parking between 9am-6pm.
Breakfast I might add, was some of the finest scrambled eggs I have ever eaten. I would definately return as while this B&B was not 'showing off' with a theme or fancy twists it's owners clearly have gotten this place just right.
