First the very minor gripes:
This place is not easy to find however it is worth finding and there is ample parking in the street outside the B&B. The layout of the room we stayed in was not to my taste although the decoration is very pleasant and done to a high standard.
Now the positives:
This is a very nice B&B and Shahrir is a fabulous host, nothing is too much trouble and he has paid a lot of attention to the details. There are no televisions and it was great to lay on the bed listening to the radio in the evenings - a word of caution there are a lot of books at The Cloudsley, however the majority of those I saw were somewhat dated and may not be to everybody's taste. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfasts superb - I can recommend the omelettes. This is a very nice B&B however it is not quite 5 star in my opinion as I have stayed in others that have ticked all the boxes with no gripes. That said I would quite happily stay at the Cloudesley again and would quite happily recommend it to my friends.
