Very welcoming host who could not have been more helpful. Old, character building with huge rooms and very tastefully refurbished. Nice and quiet and within a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. Lovely continental breakfast. Very reasonably priced.

Claire was very helpful when we asked where we could go cycling for the... More

Beautiful building, pretty riverside location and beautifully appointed/decorated/furnished. Extremely comfortable room with a lovely, plentiful traditional French breakfast. Clare, the owner, was great and really helpful. Highly recommended.

Fabulous B&B, beautifully decorated and situated on the waters edge. Claire the owner was a fantastic and attentive hostess who really made a fuss of the kids and put everyone at ease after a stressful day of driving.
