We stayed here for 1 night on Tripadvisors recommendation and were not disappointed. The accommodation consisted of a sitting room with armchairs, tv, fridge (complete with homemade slice to have with our tea and coffee), & piano. Our bedroom had a 4 poster bed, and well as a single. Bathroom was large and clean. The one thing I noticed upon entering was that there was an 'old smell' in the sitting room. I've noticed it when entering old rooms and buildings in the past, and it's something that I guess comes with staying in an old place. My husband didn't notice anything, but I did each time I entered. Bedroom was fine. Karen mentioned that the B & B part of the building is around 100 years old, so I guess that's where the smell came from. BUT DON'T BE PUT OFF. It wasn't an issue and I didn't even notice it after a short while. Karen had recommended the Allansford Hotel for dinner. It was a good 15-20 minute drive away, but worth it. we had an excellent meal. After a very peaceful sleep, breakfast was served in the attached main house which from memory is only 9 years old. And what a fabulous breakfast John provided. Cereal, yoghurt, bacon and eggs, toast, juice etc. All really delicious, and very good value for the $100 we paid. Will definately stay if in the area again. Highly recommended.
