From the moment we walked in the door Heather made us so welcome. Our room was individual and beautifully decorated. The delicious breakfast sets you up for the day. It's a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre - the tram is even closer. Lovely break in a beautiful city.

Absolute treat to stay with Heather and Ian. Beautifully clean, comfy and cosy room with superb facilities, including a wonderful breakfast menu. Although the room was a little on the small side, we'll book earlier next time to make sure we get one of the bigger rooms. So convenient to all attractions and great places to eat within walking distance.

Such a cosy and clean B&B. Our room had just been refurbished. The room was spot clean, had a great soft bed and the shower was very nice. Heather, we had a great time at your place. Thanks for your kindness and the wonderful breakfast. We will definately return to enjoy the Hedges again! Cheers, Patrick and Jennifer

Well looking back on the other reviews I can only agree with all the comments. We stayed for 3 nights in a garden view room at the front of the hotel. The room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. You could have literally eaten your dinner from the bathroom floor. The bed was super comfy too. The breakfast was emmense...
