We are from Australia, so were impressed that they took us at our word when we booked a few months ago... Simply because we were from overseas. None of trying to send Money Orders or Cheques. Susan's emails were also very friendly and "chatty". The room "A" was not the best view, but very large compared with most English B &B's. Great to spread out! breakfast had the best Muesli we have had, fresh REAL fruit salad, and fresh yogurt. huge cooked breakfasts also. Susan and Marcus went out of their way to be helpful. Sure, getting cases upstairs is a drag, but large KINGsize bed was fantastic. Well worth it.
Our travelling friends had the top floor, with a fantastic view, and heaps of fresh air. Only thing was... No shower, bath only. ((For those from Australia who would "assume" an ensuite meant a shower, a bit disappointing considering it had the best outlook of all rooms.) When a comment was made that their were no hooks to hang anything.. Miraculously one appeared!! service.
