In our almost 17 years here running Storrs Gate House, having had thousands of guests through our doors, this is the first time a guest has subjected us to such undeserved negative feedback, although on departure you implied that a negative review might be placed on TripAdvisor, if the room charge was not reduced, so it is not altogether a...

A warm friendly welcome greeted us on our arrival. This was our second visit to this lovely B&B. One of the best breakfasts I have ever had was made with locally sourced produce, with homemade marmalade & Jam.
