We stayed in the Rose room which was very clean and comfortable, however the 'ensuite' was rather like a walk in wardrobe and offered little privacy soundwise. I did'nt personally appreciate the artificial flowers, but someone else might. Breakfast was good with a fair choice provided. What spoilt our stay was the noise level within the B&B including a loud... More

I wanted a quiet room in a small place for a last minute getaway. for one night. The room was really cosy, cottage-like, but with beautiful decor, and ultra-modern facilities - the perfect combination. I thought I would be woken by early-morning clattering from the kitchen, as the room was directly above, but it was fine. I also wasn't sure... More
