A bit better than we had expected which is always a nice surprise. Having slept in many, many B&B's over the years and in various countries, This rates highly. Neither modern nor glitzy, it is very clean, in excellent repair with a comfy sense of being lived in - a home. Amenities are also good but could benefit from more comfortable reading chairs, maybe a lounger or at least something to sit back in. Kitchen is accessible and presumably is for use by guests. Breakfast is in the kitchen which has its drawbacks but our breakfast of spinach and cheese omelettes, fruit, yoghurt and muffins was quite satisfying. Excellent off street parking is a huge plus as is walking distance to several sightseeing spots. Our hostess recommended several restaurants and was spot on for each. Bottom Line: we will be back; we will recommend to friends.
