I have stayed at Willance House on a few occasions whilst working in the area and there is a reason for this, it is a place you definitley want to return too.
Only really picked it the first time due to its close proximity to my workplace and I am very glad I did. Both Colin and Sandra are both very welcoming and make you feel right at home straight away. I have stayed in the same room on all of my visits so cannot comment on any others but the one i've been in is perfect. It is at the front of the house so overlooking the street which doesnt bother me and I love the little window seat, i find myself sitting there reading before bed, very cosy. Huge bed and super comfortable, spotless linen and a rareity in b&b's super soft fluffy white towels (although not so good on the old fake tan) dressing table perfect for getting ready and the TV is modern and easy to use. The little touches are great including biscuits (not packaged ones) and books you can read etc. The bathroom is great, brand new by the looks of it with great hot power shower and everything is super clean!
the best part about this b&b is for sure the breakfast, the amount of choice on the menu is very good, really is something for everyone including 2 specials, ive tried a couple of options off the hot menu and can honestly say they have been some of the best breakfasts i've ever eaten, the eggs are divine and the home baked bread an absolute joy. Not to mention the selection of cold options. Very good value for money.
Overall I can't sing praises enough, great location, great hosts, great breakfasts and a great nights sleep, what more could you want. I look forward to returning again this week!
