Our problem here was that this is not a traditional English B&B and if that is what you are expecting (as we were), you will be disappointed (as we were). Alma House is more like a low star hotel in that it is basic, impersonal, small, a little shabby and lacking in many personal comforts. This was emphasised for us having just moved on from a delightfully traditional B&B in the midlands where the comforts were many and the hosts enriched the experience. The location here is reasonable, but the parking arrangements are difficult. The tariffs were lower than the nearby competition and I guess, in the end, you get what you pay for. Our fault for not researching this better before booking. I was really quite surprised at the high ratings when I re-read the reviews which drew us here in the first place.
