We stayed for 2 nights at the end of October for a brief but relaxing getaway, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Briarcliff. The owners Clare and Richard were very helpful in recommending restaurants and helping us navigate the area. They also baked delicious homemade scones and other baked goods for breakfast, in addition to the homemade granola, yogurt and fruit that was offered. We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms (about half of them are renovated at this point I think), and it was very clean and comfortable with modern decor, which we prefer over the traditional floral B&B experience. The bed and bed linens were quite comfortable also, and the room was very spacious with a cozy sitting area and a flat screen TV. The owners have more renovations planned, including the other half of the guest rooms, and adding a larger lounge/dining space, which we hope to see when we (definitely) return in the future. The location is also very convenient for exploring the surrounding towns, which we did while we were there. This a a 60's style motel building that has been (and is still being) converted to a contemporary style B&B which is unusual, and we felt that it offered a unique combination of privacy (you park right in front of your door) and just the right amount of friendly hosting - and also convenience, modern style and comfort. A great experience overall!
