Stayed here recently in the Rose Room. We arrived in the evening and had a nice welcome.
The hosts Barbara and Allan were friendly and seemed genuinely so, which makes a nice change - she offered to dry our wet clothes when we came back from a walk and gave us tea and cake in a comforable lounge which was kind.
Our room was clean and had the usual hospitality tray although it would have been nice for there to be two hot chocolates to start with and not just the one for us to share as there was two of us and perhaps to have nicer buscuits (maybe shortcake or shortbread). There is a notice on the tray for you ask for more of anything if you need it. The room temperature was a little cool for me even when turning the temperature up but I expect that's probably due to the size of the room. I enjoyed the hardness of the shower although the ensuite was small.
Breakfast was on a shared table (with one other room) which I now realise I dont really like, so will avoid when staying in future bed and breakfast accommodation, as it feels a little awkward. We had fresh fruit which we both enjoyed and breakfast was nicer for me on the second day when I had my eggs scrambled instead of fried as it was a little overdone the first day but I just cut the edges off. :-)
The property is in a nice location with nice views out the window and we ate at the Gate Inn which is only just across the road - I recommend you eat there - we will probably eat there again next time we're in the area.
In conclusion, this is nice place to stay with friendly hosts - I think you would enjoy staying here :-)
