We stayed here on the recommendation of Rick Steves. The neighborhood is okay with a short walk to the bus that will take one into town. Restaurants and pubs are a 10 to 15 min. walk away. Our room and bath were small, with dirty marks on the wall and dirty bathroom grout. Otherwise, the room was clean enough. Breakfast was good, with a choice each morning one needs to make the night before. We had a cheesy omelet one morning and pancakes & bacon the next day. Both were good, with accompanying fruit, toast, etc. The owners do not live on the property so if you arrive after 6 pm, as we did, you have to let yourself in. They do give you a handy business card with a list of all the buses which will take you into town. This was perhaps the only B&B we stayed in on our 3-week trip where we never felt we really "met" the host and hostess. Too bad, as that is one reason we chose B&Bs for our vacation.
