We enjoyed our 3 nights. It is the perfect BB for visiting the whole area. The rooms are exceptionally clean and set up nicely. The tea and coffee service in the room was appreciated as well. The breakfast choices were the best and everything was delicious. You can easily walk to pubs and restaurants or enjoy the beautiful back yard. Tom gave us great ideas on places to visit. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
