My daughter and I stayed at Portland for 4 days while on a walking trip. It was lovely. Denice and Rod were great hosts ànd ran the b&b with great care for the guest. Lots of nice thoughtful genius touches. Clean, friendly, comfortable and everything works. Breakfast was top notch. All round brill.
