Very recently, we stayed several nights at this charming B&B in Hereford. After a long, long day of air travel coupled with a drive across England, we wearily arrived to our room to be welcomed by a most comfortable bed fitted with luxury linens. The bathroom had modern amenities with ample high-end shampoos, soaps, etc. The only negative was that the bathroom sink had your classic English-style separated hot and cold water faucets. I’ve never understood how that still exists in England to this day.
The breakfast is fresh and delicious and seems to be made from the heart by the owners. The owners themselves are an elderly British couple who will regale you with fascinating stories if you let them.
The location is in town, close to the restaurants and bars and so forth. However, those places are not within walking distance. You would need to drive or take a taxi for maybe a few minutes. The Somerville House is located in a peacefully quiet area so at night, you will not here anything outside.
Staying here was a quintessential B&B experience. I would definitely recommend it if that is what you are looking for.
