This was the second time we have stayed here. The previous visit was with different owners and we were very satisfied, and I'm pleased to say that the new owners have kept up the high standard (if not bettered it). Guests get a very warm welcome, with tea and cake on arrival. The rooms are well-equipped and comfortable, and the...

Angela and Steve were very gracious hosts taking care of our every need. The B & B was very conveniently located to restaurants/pubs and downtown. After a long days hike, we decided to just order in pizza and Angela did quite a bit of research to find one that would deliver. She also arranged for an early morning cab and...

Steve & Angela are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had a lovely three night stay.

This is my second stay at Southcroft and I have to say it was even better than our first stay! The new owners (Steve & Angela) have decorated the bedrooms, modernised the rooms and put their own personal touches to the place. Both Angela & Steve are fabulous landlords, who are very friendly, very welcoming and will make your stay...

We arrived earlier than first thought. A very friendly greeting from the owner, after showing us the rooms, we were asked if we would like some tea / coffee and homemade cherry cake in the front guest room. Of course we all jumped at that, you do not get this offer very often whilst walking, so it went down very...
