Friendly staff, comfortable clean room and only 10 minutes walk to major attractions. A Taxi from the train station is only about 10 pounds and the breakfast is great.I can highly recommend this stay, I hope to return soon

Nice new shower unit...great water pressure, too! The breakfast was delicious and served quickly. We really appreciated being able to do a bit of laundry at the house... More

It is a quiet b&b with very friendly and welcoming staff. The breakfast was more than ample and delicious. Perfectly located with just a short walk... More

Lovely room - our room was chinese themed. It had tea/coffee/hot chocolate and herbal teas available with little buscuit each, nice shower, tv in room and free wifi. Breakfast was lovely bacon, sausage, tomatos, mushrooms, beans and choice of what type of eggs you would likea and from a local produce. Staff very friendly, very short walk to town centre

The en-suite bathroom may... More
