We arrived very late (key left under the front door mat)! Our 2 night stay was very comfortable, the room was great and breakfast was excellent. It was a friendly place, with restaurants, taxis etc. all organised fo us. In easy walkable distance of downtown.

A very clean B&B, with lovely staff looking after it. Very good breakfasts to start you on your day. Lovely period house. Very close to the centre so easy walking. Would return for another stay! Thank you.
