What makes a great b&b? To my mind, it's not just the facilities and the room. Sure, you need those, but you can get a decent room in lots of places. What lifts a b&b out of the ordinary is the attitude and approach of the people running it. Do they really care about you? Do they make you feel like you've come home when they meet you? Are they interesting, and do you enjoy their company?
On all those counts, I can't fault this place. I was only there for two nights, but I felt immediately comfortable and went on to spend two stimulating and interesting days staying with Renee and Geoff. Just go, you won't regret it.
