Literally no negatives come to mind and the list of positives are many. Where to begin? The owners, Rob & Sue, were extremely friendly. The room was cosy with en-suite, exceptionally clean and suitably kitted out. Rob's breakfast did live up to the hype, highly recommended.

Booked into The Barbican reach for one night. Rob and Sue are fabulous hosts. The room was excellent, clean and tidy. The breakfast was brilliant. Rob recommended the navy special, cheesy hammy eggy that looked and tasted great but the traditional breakfast was awesome with the best black pudding I have ever tasted.
