Had a chance to spend evening at this beautiful B and B after our daughters wedding. Location was close to venue so that was important to us. Quaint decor. Big spacious room. Breakfast was lovely in am, however, there was nobody to greet us or tell us what to do. Breakfast was scheduled for nine thirty, check out was ten,...

Having stayed at this family run establishment all I can say is the place is as good as any in the area. The host Sue and Mozart ( part welcome committee, part canine companion ;-) are always attentive. Service experienced is warm, friendly and un-intrusive, the rooms are clean and have some flair and quirks. Warm water at my times...

This is definitely not a 3 star property. The rooms are small, the beds are uncomfortable and the all round experience just nothing to get excited about. I found it amusing that they market themselves as an upmarket establishment and then you get to breakfast and the only coffee on offer is Frisco and the TV in the room only...

Generally good. The hosts were quite friendly and the rooms were decent. I appreciated the peace and quiet of the place as it is set in a nice quiet residential neighbourhood. The one thing that did disappoint me was the high charge for internet access, when based on the way it was presented to me, I expected it to be...

I stayed here in Sept 2013. Beautiful setting, but rooms were not up to scratch. My colleagues and I both noticed that the bedsheets had not been changed since the previous persons stay.
