The cooked breakfasts were top-notch, and the breakfast room was available for us to use for our dinner from a nearby takeaway. The B&B is in easy walking distance of... More

The important things for us were (the boring bits) ground floor, security, close proximity rooms, easy access facilities and nearby parking. This place ticks all the boxes and... More
