Exceeded expectations!!!!
Wow! This was a fabulous bed and breakfast! One of the best we've ever stayed at. The owners are incredible and very helpful. They even offered to drop off and pick us up from a wedding. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The room had everything you could possibly think of and was very clean. We will most definitely stay again!

Cosy and friendly
Easily missed from the outside but what a lovely welcoming place to stay. Warm, friendly and well appointed. The extra little touches such as a fresh fruit, fridge, coffee machine, underfloor heating in the bathroom make all the difference. Hands down would beat any large chain hotel! Well done Brian and Alma

Lovely B&B with lots of extras
This is a B&B although it is sometimes referred to as a Hotel - check the internet when you look. It is on the main road and was a coaching inn, but now is a B&B with a shop adjoining. Car parking is off road but minimal. Only three (I think) rooms so parking should not be a problem - but public car park a few doors down. No restaurant, but I went to an Indian 10 minutes walk away. There is a pub in between. For a B&B it is excellent. Cake (home made) sweets, coffee machine, everything you can think of in terms of away-from-home luxury. I just like my restaurant to be in the hotel, but if I did not mind, I would definitely stay here again. They make this place much better than a hotel.
