We arrived at the B&B early evening. The place was easily found and car parking was clearly signposted. The reception was clearly signposted from the parking area and the front door bell was immediately answered by the owner. She was very friendly and very welcoming. She was also clearly knowledgeable about the local area. Our reservation was found very quickly and we were shown to our room immediately.
All of the facilities were explained to us and she checked to make sure that the heating and the shower were correctly set.
There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room and, although there are cartons of UHT milk in the room, there is a common fridge in the hall which has fresh milk placed in it.
The room was a little small, but manageable, and the decor was a little twee, but not unpleasant. The bathroom was very small and it took some clever manoevring to use the facilities. Also, the shower was not very powerful and took a while to get to a comfortable temperature.
The towels provided for drying after a shower were somewhat small.
The room, the bathroom, in fact the whole of the B&B was spotlessly clean.
Although on a main road, the B&B sits back from the main road and is very quiet.
The dining room was comfortably laid out and no table was squashed in, making breakfast a pleasant experience. The choice on offer for breakfast was excellent, and the cooked breakfasts were very nice, well cooked, and well presented. The views from the breakfast room are fantastic.
The parking is at the back of the house up a short, steep hill. On going down on to the main road careful driving is needed to ensure that the front of the car does not scrape on the main road.
The other down side of the B&B is that we found the bed very hard.
Overall, we thought that the B&B was very pleasant, with very welcoming and helpful hosts, and provided good value for money.
