My family and I stayed at this copacetic bed and breakfast for one night. The lady who greeted us at reception was simply charming and made us feel very welcome. We were then shown to the large family room. However, the room was stiflingly hot so we had to shut off the radiator and throw the windows wide. In the room, there were two double beds and one single bed. The single bed resembled the prison cots in that old '70s sitcom, "Porridge", but it was wholly comfortable. My wife is a martyr to back problems, and spent a rather restless night tossing and turning on the incommodious double bed. In all honesty, none of us slept particularly well, mainly due to the fact that people in the room next to us talked vociferously well into the wee small hours. The room looks out onto a pleasant garden, but there was a bit of a hullabaloo in said garden (not dissimilar to the sound a groundsman wheeling a barrow around) at the rather irksome hour of 5:30 am.
The room and bathroom were generally spic and span. It was also a pleasure to have a bidet in the ensuite, which is unusual in a bed and breakfast establishment. I have one major gripe about the motion sensor light in the bathroom - one would be taking a shower, when one would be plunged into pitch darkness. There is no window in the bathroom so the darkness is absolute! To turn the light on again, one has to open the shower door and wave it around! This must surely be a health and safety issue!
The continental breakfast provided at the establishment was satisfactory. The water cooler provided was very convenient as was the excellent coffee machine, which offered a wide variety of hot beverages.
In conclusion, I have awarded this bed and breakfast four out of five stars for its cleanliness, the warm welcome from the host and exceptional value for money for the spaciousness of the large family room.
