We booked this B&B very last minute, seizing the chance for a two day get away mid January. Normally we like to stay 2 nights but work commitments prohibited this. I am aware that most guest houses prefer not to commit to one night too advance of a weekend stay and I respect this as they may lose out on guests who wish to stay for two nights. As it was last minute and off peak season they were happy to accommodate us. Graham and Janet introduced themselves and seemed very friendly and accommodating. As our room was already available we were allowed to check in at 12 noon and had a choice of rooms. We found the room very clean, fresh and pleasantly decorated. The en-suite toilet and shower were adequate for our needs. The bed was most comfortable and very welcoming after a long day up the mountain. We had a great night sleep and found the guest house very quiet and adequately heated when waking up. Breakfast is served in a window between 8 and 9:30, however they can make exception for early risers. It consisted of a full English with good quality Cumberland sausage, hash browns and bacon without any fat. Vegetarian full English looked just as good and there are also lighter choices on offer. The guest house is situated only 7 to 10 minutes walk from the clock tower in the town centre where there a a whole host of pubs and bars. We will definitely return in the future.
