B&B Cracking little B&B whilst working away from home, its a bit like a motel in USA but has a lovely home from home feeling about it. Very welcoming on arrival and check in, dining room like a country tea room. Room Clean and smartly laid out, beautiful polished wooden floor was really nice touch and very well looked after....

We stopped here whilst visiting relatives in the area. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean. The en-suite facilities are in need of a little TLC but are functional. Breakfast was superb with meals and drinks tailored to your requirements. Chris, the owner is very helpful and, like me, appears to enjoy a good chat !! We shall return.

Then location is perfect for a break in journey to Cornwall. Straight off the A303 and into our room within minutes. The room was tidy and adequate size, although the decor is incredibly dated. The rooms are accessed from an outside courtyard which is nice. The 'shower' room is a disabled wet room which was quite old, rusty and not... More

Its a lovely little place that's very friendly. On the outskirt of everything we wanted to view in the surrounding area. Great pub within walking distance. You get a nice breakfast in the morning and the price is unbelievably reasonable. We're planning our return already.

Having stopped here for 3 days and two nights I can honestly say it was fantastic, the room was clean warm and very spacious, breakfast was nice and nothing out of the establishment reach. The owner was warm and friendly to approach and went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied in my stay. Highly recommended.

Booked this hotel on booking.com and then received a voicemail next day to say it was being cancelled. No explanation so I called up to find out and was just told booking.com had double booked it. 4 days later I am still waiting for a refund!

I stayed here early January 2014 as a business traveler. I found the accommodation on laterooms and although it was a little off the beaten track it was cheap and all I wanted it for was a bed after work. The room was very nice, it felt had that country cottage decor. I must say I have never had such... More

Having stayed here before a couple of years ago, there was no hesitation when being in the area for New Years Eve in booking here again. A warm welcome with a post of tea & biscuits on a very damp afternoon was much appreciated. The breakfast the next day was extremely good, the room was basic but had everything we... More
