We both had a most enjoyable stay; we were made to feel so welcome, we didn't want to leave so booked for 4 extra nights. Graham & Shirley were great hosts. We thoroughly recommend. Thank you :) Sue & Vinny

We stayed here after a much needed weekend break away with our two children (3 & 11 weeks), the owners were lovely, the b&b was very tired, the bed squeaked constantly, you only had to move your toe and the whole b&b would know about it, the floors creak with every movement, doors were banging, people shouting in the streets,...

A very helpful & friendly owner who helped us find some free parking nearby on arrival . A very clean but basic room which suited us fine in a great location . The breakfast was excellent and no shortage of food . The only negative thing was the bed and mattress had seen better days and not very comfortable .

We made a last minute booking here and due to the summer it was busy with hardly anywhere to stay. This place was one of few available but was so glad it was. It is in the perfect location and the room a decent size. Lovely breakfast and looked after well by the hosts. Would go back there again.

First we were called by the owners on the day of our arrival are we coming and when- which I find quite rude as now matter if we would come or not we would have paid for the room. Secondly no parking - we have spent 45 minutes looking for some kind of parking near by, ended up paying 20... More

First impressions were mixed - a friendly welcome but a tired and dated interior. We were shown to our room on the top floor which was small and basic but looked clean. Our bathroom had a bathtub and no shower but there was no shower attachment for the bath which made hair washing difficult. The room was lacking in decent... More

En suite had an extractor fan with the usual worn bearing making it sound like a motorbike, no toilet roll holder,no power to shaver points, toilet bowl not secured... More
