My husband and I stayed at The Old Coffee House in October and found Julia to be welcoming, friendly and most responsive to our needs (Clive had broken his leg so they were one man down). Although we felt the B & B was good value for the money (£50 per night for a double room for 2 with breakfast), we did struggle with sleeping for the first couple of nights due to the bedding not being what we were used to. Feeling a bit like the main character in the Princess and The Pea story I approached Julia to ask if they had any alternative pillows and bed linen to those provided and she said they didn't, BUT she would be prepared to buy some if I could provide a list. I wrote down the minimum of items so not to be too demanding but was overjoyed upon returning to the room that night to find virtually everything had been upgraded. After that we couldn't wait to get back to the room - it was, for us, so much more comfortable and we even had a couple of lie-ins. What an amazing response to a tricky situation - worth 5 stars from us for that alone.
