I would like to add a couple of comments to the the last review.(Aug 14)I agree entirely with their views.We stayed in the Madison Suite and when the dishes were being cleared away at 12.45am we were kept awake by the noise,(due to the pleasant weather we had to leave the windows open a couple of inches and the kitchen did the same)There was only three hangers to hang your clothes on three hooks.There was the noisiest bed side table I have ever encountered--a large fridge--for holding two small bottles of water.Due to it being so noisy we turned it off at night which defeated the object of keeping the water cold.The bathroom needed a couple of shelvesThe bed side lamps would only turn off together which led to a few grumbles as I like to read before sleeping.Last gripe-what a nuisance having to take your shoes off everytime you came in.
I was not aware that it was communal eating around a large table which is slightly uncomfortable as whatever I require always seems to be on the other side.(Murphy's law)
I would like to add a few good comments !!
Beautifully decorated.Wonderful shower.Fab sofa.Comfy bed.Best homemade fudge and biscuits I have ever tasted.Tasty coffee.
I also think the Madison was well overpriced.What a shame but in my opinion this B/B did not live up to the Sunday Times review.
