Stayed for one night at May Bank Holiday B and B and ate dinner in the restaurant.
Check in – smooth and friendly and we wereable to park our motorcycle in the limited car park which would not be large enough for one space per room. Arrive early if that is important to you.
Room – number 9, first floor, standard room not very spacious for the price but more than OK for a one night stay. All very clean and tidy with a nice bathroom and a great shower. A nice extra was the honesty box for a few drinks and snacks though we did not use it. The bed was comfortable and although onto a narrow one way street there was little traffic noise. The sound proofing did leave a little to be desired so that when other guests started getting up in the morning it was clearly noticeable. It was so poor that we could hear another guest in a room next door snoring. Sadly nearly all UK hotels we have stayed in have this problem to a lesser or greater extent and in truth this one is about average for that.
Staff - overall were excellent but seemed a little understaffed in the bar area.
Food – Ate dinner in the restaurant and it was simply superb. Had the best Whitebait I have ever had and the whole meal was excellent. It is very ery popular it seems so reserve in the restaurant early as you can as the bar area is not so nice. The restaurant is nicely appointed and decorated and I would hazard a guess that the pub area is the next on the list for a refurbishment as the rest of the hotel is in good order
Breakfast was as good as dinner, available for about £13 for non-guests, and top quality down to the homemade jams and even homemade cereals along with an extensive choice of hot items.
Over all one of the best small UK hotels we have ever stayed in and will not hesitate to, and will look forward to staying there again.
