From the moment you are geeeted at the entrance, you know you've entered one of the best b&b's available. It is bordering on a boutique hotel. The staff are so caring and very helpful, nothing is over looked and everything is rheir pleasure. I highly recommend this place

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
This place is great. It's a fine old building, with the patina of age: it's been lived in, and is all the better for it. Converting it to be a B&B is inspired - it's big enough to allow for luxuries (swimming pool, bar etc) but small enough to remain personal: even in two nights
