Excellent: room, parking, hosts, location: Best location for visiting historic dockyard, Harbour sights and D-Day Museum ! Wir kommen wieder, weil es so toll war mit typical English weather - 10 days blue sky, white clouds, not even one drop of rain.

Stayed here for one night for business, lovely room, modern decor, all clean, brilliant power shower. All important Wifi worked no problems (so often this can be a bit hit & miss in B&Bs). Owners friendly and cooked the best poached eggs I've ever had! Would recommend for business or leisure stays. Thanks
