We enjoyed our stay very much. The B&B is really lovely, the rooms were tidy and clean and the owner Paul was friendly and helpful. But most of all, the breakfast was amazing! I would definitely stay there again and can highly recommend it!

Enjoyed our short stay here, room was spotless and breakfast was good. Owners were friendly - the only downside was the room was very small and you could hardly move in the en-suite. Great if you just want somewhere to rest your head.

There is a road outside but noise was minimal. The room is small but had everything required for a comfortable stay. Sufficient wardrobe with hangers, a small sink and... More

Friendly hosts and so accommodating. Rooms spotlessly clean - no attention to detail was overlooked. Delicious breakfast with great choices a great start to any day! Plenty of available information and knowledge given by Diane and Paul to help when planning your day. Highly recommended.

Thanks for a wonderful stay, our room was a small double but was just perfect for us, it was spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed and was very well equipped. The breakfasts were beautifully cooked, there was a good choice, a good range of cereals and offers of more toast and drinks. We had a relaxing stay, made welcome by... More

I really don't know where to start. There are so many faults with this place. I stayed here with my wife for a romantic weekend break and left feeling disappointed and let down. The owners of this place did not make us feel welcome. It was as if they didn't really want any guests. The room was cold, cramped and... More

Good location within very easy reach of... More

Excellent service throughout, clean rooms and lovely breakfast! Good location as near town centre and shops. We had our own parking space the and the free wifi worked well. The staff could not have been more helpful.

I stayed for 2 nights in a single room. It was one of the nicest places I've stayed - really comfortable and well furnished, not with cheap furniture as you find in some places. The breakfast was large and delicious. Also with the single room you get a large and spacious bathroom shared with one other room - but the... More
