“Just what we needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Warm welcome, cyclist friendly (place to lock bikes away), comfortable and clean rooms (there is a bath!!!! A definite must for cyclists!). This place is very well run and the breakfast was excellent.

A well-run, clean and homely B+B. The owners were friendly and the breakfast was great.

Excellent service, warm helpful people, certainly will be back if we are in that area. Highly recommended. The packed luches were wonderful when we were out walking: nourishing, large, tasty!

A rather dated guest house, over priced in my opinion. Simply just 'Adequate' for the purpose and no more.

My husband and I were one of four couples who stayed at this guest house for only one evening. I do not speak for the others in the party. The room allocated to us was at the top of the house up a flight of narrow steep stairs. The shabby room was small and poorly funished with a mis-match of bed linen. There was a layer of dust on the skirting board and the en suite 'cupboard' was grubby. There was not only no hot water there was no water at all from the hot tap. The toilet seat was broken and when I mentioned these facts to the proprietor as we left I was informed 'They were alright yesterday'.
I trust if you read this review that you noticed the dark hair I found under the egg at breakfast time and left on the side of my plate?
On the plus side, the residents' lounge appeared to be comfortable although we did not use and there was off road parking.

We booked a 2 night stay at this guest house, but were disappointed with the room. The only room I could book on the internet was a room with a four poster bed, we thought this would be nice as it is difficult for us to get away from work commitments and felt we were booking something special......big mistake !!!!
The room was clean and tidy but dated, the bed was just awful, it was very very creaky, hard and uncomfortable. The towels were not changed for our second night. At £85 per night we felt it was a bit over priced.
On the plus side, the breakfast was very good, freshly cooked and plenty of choice and the couple were very friendly.
