We stayed over as we had an early morning flight from PE. This B&B is close to Stanley Street that seems to have some nice restaurants/ bars. The walk home from Stanley Street felt a little bit unsafe as the street lighting is very poor (non existent in places). It would appear that this area is an "up and coming"...

St Phillips is a charming Victorian building on a quiet residential street, and just a minute's walk from the many restaurants on Stanley Street - notably the excellent Le Med. In town for a cricket match, we also chose this b&b as it's three minutes' drive (or 15 minutes on foot) from St George's Park. Our spacious room, number six,...

This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. With changing of details and number of guests to the lovely, comfortable beds and fantastic ambiance this was simply a great experience. The staff were fantastic and the honesty bar an absolute pleasure for that little glass of wine in the evening. Proximity to restaurants and added plus. I love this...

The poorest customer service I've experienced during my visit to "the friendly city". All policy and practice is in the interests of the staff - not the customer. A designated 1 hour check in time in peak season! No ventilation meant the room was like an oven. No air-con - maximum ventilation still didn't cool the room enough for comfortable...

We stayed in this B&B for 1 night. The rooms are located in older buildings that had been renovated and tastefully decorated. We had virtually a whole house to ourselves with fully equipped kitchen and lounge. In the fridge are a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available. Our spacious room (Nr 9, opposite the main reception building) was on...

First two nights here meant we could stroll to the various culinary nights that have turned Richmond Hill into the place to be in PE. Room 1 has a lovely balcony with great views and Rodney, Cynthia and Bubbles made us feel very welcome. Rodney saved the day by securing an adaptor plug to ensure Mrs C was able to...

This is one of the best guesthouses that I have been at in the last few years. Amazing rooms and very beautiful interior design. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the balcony, and we walked to the bar from our place.
