I have never before written a review on a place I have stayed, but in this instance I must make an exception. The reason never before is that it would be imprudent to do so as my business is in hospitality, supplying every type of establishment from 2 star michelin restaurants to 5 star hotels, guest houses, fast food, pubs and B&B's throughout the UK. (I must add however, that I have not and do not supply goods or services to Bridget or Keith or Spillers) We booked Spillers as it was just 2 fields away from our friends as the crow flies, and it had many positive responses listed.
Keith and Bridget were the perfect hosts, the king size room and bed was perfect, the breakfast was just the same. The attention to detail in as much as supplying make up remover pads for the female guests, and even ear plugs for those that are woken too early by the cockerels. ( I would find that unlikely as the bed can only be described as laying in a feather of marshmallows! )
Having a docking system for ipods is just another small extra touch making the visit more memorable.
All in all, I would recommend Spillers, Keith and Bridget wholeheartedly.
