A great place to stay. I stayed for two nights and found the room to be comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Alexander House is run by lovely people that were very warm and helpful. If I ever find myself in that part of the world again I would definitely stay there.

The B&B is located approx 1 min walk from the train station and within walking distance of the Old Blacksmiths (which was the venue of the wedding, I was attending). The Alexander is a small guest house and the service from the proprietors was 2nd to none. My room (a double) was not the biggest, neither was the shower/toilet. However,...
