My wife and I booked to stay at the Grassmoor over the New Year period and we're really glad we did. We had a lovely welcome from Gillian and were shown to a room at the top of the house. Some of the things that set the Grassmoor apart from other guesthouses we've stayed in were; a mini fridge in the room with fresh milk for drinks and somewhere you can chill water and snacks you might have, wine glasses, glasses and proper mugs to drink from, replenished daily, lovely hand soap and shower gel in the bathroom (not those sachets that we've come to expect), nice biscuits and good quality tea and coffee and the fact that the guesthouse is immaculately clean and comfortable with spotless bed linen and fluffy towels. Gillian remembered our first names too, which sounds like a little thing but it really makes you feel like a welcomed guest.

Breakfast is superb at the Grassmoor. Gillian leaves a menu for you to choose your breakfast each morning and what time you'd like it, when she pops in to make your bed and replenish your towels and supplies. It's a brilliant idea! We've stayed in many guest houses and have never seen such an extensive breakfast menu! There's everything from porridge to yoghurt for starters and then a wide choice of mains, from the traditional English breakfast to pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. The breakfasts are delicious and well presented and there is also cereals, toast and fruit that you can help yourself to. Again, little touches such as chilled cubes of butter and little pots of jam and marmalade add a feeling of luxury in a way that those mass produced, little plastic tubs that you see in most B&Bs can't. The breakfast room contains one large table for all the guests, which we liked as it was nice to chat to some of the others staying there.

We didn't meet Philip whilst we were staying at the Grassmoor but Gillian is a lovely host. Friendly, approachable and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely and welcoming stay in such a good location close the the town. Breakfasts are wonderful with a good choice, rooms are clean and the (silent) fridge with fresh milk is such a refreshing change. We were in Room 4 right at the top of the house with a huge comfortable bed and plenty of room with views of the hills (snow-topped). Gillian is so friendly and helpful with any queries. All this and dogs are allowed to stay too! What could be better? We will definitely stay again.

A great find, just off the town centre - easily walkable but quiet. Gillian was great with her approach to ensuring the guests were looked after and knew how the place ran etc. Breakfasts had a straightforward choice but exactly the choices you would wish for. I would definitely stay again but next time might be with the family rather than 3 mates. The singles we had seemed a little narrow, if you have a habit of rolling over in the night, you might fall out !! En-suites small but very usable. Thoroughly recommended for families or friends.

I very much enjoyed my 5 nights' stay at the Grassmoor and can only wholeheartedly recommend it. It is very quiet and from the way the rooms are furnished and kept (spotlessly clean, soothing colours) it is very relaxing. Very good breakfast with selections for anyone's taste. Gillian, the host, does everything in her power to make your stay enjoyable.
