Everthing about our stay at the Portland House B&B was perfect. The greeting we received from Denise and Rod was exceptionally warm and friendly - they even had a pot of tea waiting for us. They remained helpful and gracious hosts throughout our stay. The rooms themselves were light and roomy, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the en suites were a good size for B&B standard. The thoughtful little extras made the stay extra special - corkscrew, wine glasses, torch, hairdryer, sewing kit and homemade shortbread (which was delicious!). The breakfasts were delicious, and the selection was outstanding, and far and above the normal B&B standard. You could certailny tell that Rod and Denise used high quality, local produce. Overall, our stay was outstanding. We will definitley be recommending it, and we hope to return soon ourselves.
