Booked in advance on Booking.com then was informed a couple of weeks before coming, by the owners that they were going on holiday and breakfast in the room would not be available. They knocked off £10 for the breakfasts (or lack of) and was given the option of sticking with the booking or cancelling. We decided to go ahead, and... More

Such a lovely little B&B that is only a 5 minute walk to the city walls and about 10-15mins to the city centre. Easy to get to and very welcoming. When we visited, the hosts were away so did not have the breakfast (but did get refunded so this was no a problem - Pig and Pastry down the road... More

Unfortunately we didn't get to actually meet the owners, but the lady we did meet was friendly and helpful. Our room in number 2 was clean, lovely decor, great selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. We didn't get to have breakfast, but we already knew of this beforehand which we were fine with. The reason I have given 3... More

Amazing stay, gorgeous rooms and a ridiculously delicious breakfast. You can tell Ruth & Rob have thought about every little detail when putting this B&B together. Lovely, friendly & speedy service too! I took a quick snap of our breakfast... It just doesn't do it justice though! Delivered straight to your room too!

Only there for one night but would definitely stay again. Lovely accommodation, good location and really enjoyable breakfast. All at a good price too compared to other hotels available when we booked. Breakfast is delivered to the room which we found very relaxing and a nice change to sitting in a dining room. Lots of nice touches which made it... More

This was my second stay in this lovely B&B. The owners/staff are incredibly responsive, and the cleaning is impeccable. I stayed two nights, left everything in a mess the first morning, and came back to a spotless room. And, of course, the breakfast is delicious. Exactly, what you need when you're away from home.
