Cannot rate this highly enough. Good location, wonderful hosts, lovely spacious character room, fantastic breakfasts, and little extras, like dimmer switches on bedside lights. They even booked our theatre tickets for us!

This was a warm, friendly and well kept B & B only 10 minutes walk from the city center. The room was lovely, spacious and sparkling, with in-room coffee/tea. Breakfasts were yummy and made to order. A great place to stay and we would again.
