Me and my boyfriend stayed for one night in this b&b in May. We picked it as it was near boyfriends work [ in process of moving] and offered an apartment which gave us more space.
Good points: The hostess is very friendly and welcoming - offered us scones and tea when we arrived though we were going out then so she left on kitchen table. Apartment was very clean and tidy and came with everything you needed.
Bad points: The hostess is alittle OTT - When we got out of car to open door of apartment we seen two lovely dogs and within 2 sec the host was out explaining everything to us which at near 10pm we didn't really need. At breakfast we were running late and we just wanted two boiled eggs with the selection of fruit she provided - she kept on saying would we like anything more which is normally lovely if someone asks us once but Elizabeth asked us 5times. We also wanted boiled egg and she couldn't find holders which wasn't an issue so we opted for poached eggs but again she kept asking us was it ok. Poached egg was nice and due to early morning I left abit of mine but host rudely said 'oh you obviously didn't enjoy' - I did ! I didn't feel like I really needed to explain myself. I also found at £80 it is rather expensive for a place in the middle of nowhere.
This place is lovely and host is nice but I would say tone down on asking people do they like/enjoy. This place is better suited to a relaxing weekend stay opposed to mid week quick stay.
