Was a beautiful room, very clean. Family enjoyed the warm nature of the host. Breakfast was served fresh and with pride. Could find no faults at all, sleep was heavenly with the warm beds on the chilly wintry nights.

Relaxed, safe and friendly atmosphere, yummy omelettes and super hosting from Sandy! The informal bar area allows for plenty of after-work banter. The rooms are clean and accomodating. We will no doubt be back!

The room was clean and neat. The staff was friendly. Big 5 is located in a quiet area. A lovely assortment of breakfast choices was available. I recommend Big 5 as a B & B that indeed provides value for money.

The water pressure was extremely low and the wifi was down for those few days, it could be seen as a positive lol. The breakfast was so yummy and the owner so friendly, hospitable,... More

What a comfortable place with friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You wish one can even stay longer. The children enjoyed the company of Bobby and the swings. Breakfast is great. I recommend this place for a home far away from home.

The room was clean and comfortable and everything necessary was available. The breakfast was great. The service provided was very friendly. The location was easy to get to and close enough to the airport and town centre.
