Lovely old house...reasonably looked after. Some of the decorating was slipshod...which is a shame with such a lovely property.
We stayed in the Four Poster room. The bed was quite comfortable and the room was large with two side chairs, a wardrobe, and a desk. We paid an average of 75 pounds per night.
Breakfast was average...lots of choices for cold foods...but the hot choices were a little disappointing. I have to say we have found with every bed and breakfast at which we have stayed in Great Britain...when they do a fry-up there's never any grease. Obviously you don't want your plate swimming with grease, but a little adds flavour and the meals tend to be rather bland.
Our room was ensuite and it had about the best shower I've ever had...very powerful...although they did run out of hot water one day when I had a shower in the afternoon.
Fairly clean, but we stayed 6 days and our room wasn't vacuumed even once...so the floor was looking a little crumby by the time we left.
Peeling wallpaper and paint in the bathroom and mold in the shower and on the blind in the bathroom.
We would stay again as it was more than adequate and the lady who runs it is very friendly and helpful. It is also right on a main bus route so that the buses run every few minutes to take you to downtown.
