Excellent B&B with a lovely Lady who owns it
First impressions were excellent. Sue greeted us upon arrival with a smile and was very enthusiastic. She showed us to our room which was clean, modern, and had personal touches from Sue. I know Sue had the place professionally refurbished and it shows. The room has a silent fridge, excellent bed, immaculate bathroom with excellent shower, and lovely towels, shower gel and hand wash along with other personal touches, like decent loo roll, flannels and cotton buds etc. You can tell that Sue takes a pride in her place and made us feel very welcome. The shower was clean, modern and very powerful. There are water coolers in the breakfast room and on the landing which you are free to use along with unlimited tea and coffee. There are loads of breakfast options including a massive full English, along with unlimited coffee, tea, Cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt etc. You can also have salmon, omelette and any type of eggs. The breakfast was excellent, and to be honest, we made pigs of ourselves! Nothing is too much trouble for Sue. She cleans the rooms every day and is really friendly. The room also had Freeview, and a clock radio. We didn't hear any noise from outside and although we thought parking would be an issue ( as there is street parking only but for free) we had no trouble.The town Centre is less than 15 minutes walk away and there are many pubs and restaurants that do excellent food at a reasonable price. The railway station is also close if you fancy a trip on a steam train.

Lovely accommodation
The prior reviews and photos of the accommodation meant that we had high hopes for our 2 night stay, and I'm happy to say that we were not disappointed. We were immediately made very welcome by Sue and the room was lovely, albeit a little tight around the King Size bed, but it was perfectly fine for us. The breakfast was very generous, and I liked the idea of pre-ordering exactly what you wanted, all supplemented by cereals or free fruit salad. There is no parking with the accommodation and so it is first come first served for street parking. Having said that, we were very lucky and parked immediately outside. The town centre is a pleasant walk away. Will definitely stay there again.
