Does each room have its own bathroom.
All rooms have ensuite bathrooms. Some of the rooms have in addition a luxury bath-tub in the room itself, adapted to the Edwardian style of our guest house.

"All rooms excellent, but if you have a problem with stairs choose the garden rooms"
"Ask for the large front facing room"
"spacious rooms"
