“Just outstanding service & welcome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2011

Once again another brilliant welcome from Kath & Trevor. Their guest house is 5 star and nothing is too much trouble. In the rooms nothing has been forgotten and the cleanliness and their first class welcome complets your stay.We return again & again, thanks both once again. Maureen & Joseph

Just went for a short get away with my partner I'm not into big hotels unless you can afford a suite as there always so dull and basic. This place felt right at home comfy and welcoming. breakfast was nice good meat used and fresh coffee! Very clean huge bed and the bath was even bigger in person more like a hot tub fantastic would go back again.

First class friendly welcome off the owners Kath & Hubby. First class attention to detail which is always appreciated when you try to travel light. Even down to a magnifiying mirror for your make up and lovely jacussi type bath, wonderful to relax in. It's a newly Thatched roof cottage near to the picturesque canal- where you can hire day boats/ trips and visit the canal museum. Good walking area, excellant Indian restaurant with another exceptional welcome from the owners. Do visit Stoke Bruerne they have a 40's weekend on 1/2nd October, go in uniform or 40's clothes and enjoy.

Just returned from a weekend stay at Waterways to attend a friend's wedding in nearby Blisworth. We received a very warm welcome from Kath and Trevor, the rooms were lovely (spotless) with lots of nice touches (fresh flowers etc) and a very large comfy bed. Breakfast was lovely - tailored to suit individual needs. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the massive jacuzzi bath (red room) and sitting in the sunshine in the charming courtyard garden. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend this B & B and hope to return in the future.

I found this place by accident via a well-known search engine. I needed a place to crash for one night before a three-day conference just down the road.
The setting is perfect - just opposite a lock on the grand union canal. The village itself has two lovely pubs and a great indian restaurant. My room (RED - seriously recommend this one) was fitted out like a five star hotel and the bathroom is luxurious and has the largest bath I've seen outside a showroom. Everyone I encountered was charming, efficient and - crucially for me - knowledgeable about the local area. I'd certainly come back here for business or pleasure.
If I had to fault anything it would be access. I only had a suitcase and briefcase and found it a little tricky to negotiate the steps and narrow gate, so anyone with lots of luggage and perhaps limited mobility (let alone a wheelchair) would have difficulty.
But that's really all I can criticise, for me this was spot on - excellent value, location, standard and service.
