Reminds me why we love to stay in b&b's over hotels. Lisa and Randy were fantastic hosts for my wife and our 2 young children. Our room was spacious and comfortable for the 4 of us. The breakfasts were really excellent but on top of that Lisa and Randy went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They...

My wife and I just spent a night at the The Artful Lodger Inn and we haven't stopped singing its praises. The location is great, just a short walk from all of the shops, restaurants and bars along Thames St...yet it's nestled in a very quiet area that feels miles away from all the hustle and bustle.
