We were greeted by Bill and Rosie who gave us tea and freshly baked blueberry and lavender sugar muffins in the lounge which were devine! Our room was spacious and clean with everything we needed. Attention to detail was faultless, DVD player, CD player,a beverages... More

Well this is the best place to stay in Hereford. A great location, great rooms and a brilliant breakfast. Wifi is good. I have stayed on and off for 13 months and this place became a home from home. Bill and Rosie are great hosts and make you really welcome.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and spacious. All toiletries were provided, there were so many little things provided that made it a home from home. The... More

Cannot commend enough. Spotless and spacious rooms. Gracious hosts. Delicious breakfast.About a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi to the city centre. Charming town house formerly a maternity hospital where my taxi driver was born! A real gem and superior to many 5 star hotels I have stayed at, with the delightful attention of the owners who are...

Great hosts! Comfortable and clean en suite bedroom, healthy grease free breakfasts-locally sourced. Good location, quiet and a short distance from train station and town centre, would definitely recommend.

We had a lovely large room, beautifully furnished. Great for those, like me, who are disabled. The shower contained a grab rail which was handy for me, and the owners placed a ramp outside the house to enable me to enter the property. All in all a lovely Victorian house.

It was a lovely weekend, the staff were so pleasant and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Rosie makes cakes for everyone to help themselves, breakfast was one of the best we have had anywhere. Room 3 is a big room with all you need for your stay, the bed was like a big white marshmallow, but the only downside... More

Everything was just perfect and nothing was too much trouble. It was only a one night stay but we felt we could have stayed much longer. We expect to return for a slightly longer stay in the future. The breakfast here was of the highest quality with much local produce and even high quality home made marmalade.
