Stayed here for a few night on business. Booked online with Laterooms. Very good value, bedroom large and well equipped. Only gripe, and this is my own fault for not noticing, shared bathroom. Bath and toilet not the cleanest I have seen. However, Landlady was very friendly and very welcoming. Kitchen for guests use which had everything if you wanted...

Made a reservation online in the afternoon to stay this evening. They didn't respond to calls to landline or mobile, then showed up and no-one was there. Even walked round the back and the house was locked. You should advertise having rooms available when you're not there to take your guests - go elsewhere!

Lovely B&B. I had a large twin room. Very comfortable. Wifi was excellent. Downstairs there is a small kitchen for the use of guests. Breakfast was fabulous. Top quality food which included eggs from the owner's hens, homemade bread, homemade jams and the best quality tea I have ever had in a hotel. Only has 4 rooms, 2 are ensuite,...

Stayed for one night with my boyfriend as we were going to a barbeque nearby. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. It was kindly suggested that in the morning we keep showering times to a reasonable length, although a guideline more than a rule. Our chatty new friend was...

Stayed for 2 nights. I booked a single room but was given a room with 2 beds and told I HAD to sleep in a certain one. Breakfast was quite good although when I asked for more juice I was given a hard time by the owner. I was also snapped at when coming down to eat my lunch saying...

I am sorry you felt that we were strict over a number of items during your stay. Understandably, we do request that guests use one bed for a single payment. We are glad you enjoyed your breakfast. The juice was hand pressed by us the day before from our own apples and thus is a precious commodity. We give a...

Yes I had a single room booked, I booked it on late rooms, it was meant to be a no deposit needed but the lady called awaking for a deposit. She also called the day before asking me to arrive after six pm. When I did arrive, I found the room had been double booked and she expected me to...

We do apologise for this genuine double booking. Another guest turned up in the early afternoon, before the check in time for guests and a week earlier than he had booked for. A friend showed him to an empty room and the guest then left for the evening before the landlady returned. As his personal effects were too numerous to...

Room advertised as triple. After booking was called and asked what time I was arriving. Unable to say so was told to guess, host unhappy about my travel times and vagaries therein. Room advertised as triple, consisted of 1 x double and 1 x single. Advised cost would increase if I wanted to sleep in double bed. Was asked what...

Well, some people just do not recognise quality! No doubt the gentleman is not used to handmade organic bread and eggs laid by our own hens, freshly-made genuine espresso coffee and home-pressed apple juice. The offer of toast and home-made preserves was rejected. However, the next day, white sliced bread was deemed to be acceptable. My guests are given the...

House is immaculately clean, the room I had was very spacious and pleasant. If you want a completely anonymous place to stay whereby nobody knows or cares how or where you are then this is probably not the place for you, it's kind of halfway between a standard b&b and living in someones house. I found the owner extremely friendly...

My time at Drake house was very frustrating. There were stringent rules which all boarders had to abide by, most of which were wholly unrealistic. The biggest problem was the severe lack of privacy. All the doors were fire doors. Yet everytime I returned to my room I found the doors held open with door stops which negated the safety...
