The proprietors are a friendly couple who ensured that we were happy with things and that we enjoyed our stay. They endeavoured to meet our needs. The hotel is in a good location - facing a nice park.

Not allowed to eat in your room... lol!
Having arrived to my room after a long day and journey, I was planning to get a take away dinner and retreat for the night. Owners told me I wasn't allowed to eat in the room incase I messed on their carpet... Bed was comfy and breakfast was good

A bed and breakfast worthy of note :-)
Probably the best bead and breakfast that we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. We were in the "Yellow room", which is spacious, comfortable, well appointed and overlooking the park. The ensuite bathroom is worthy of mention for its cleanliness. The hosts were welcoming without being invasive, and the breakfast was excellent.
